With no clothes in the washer start a program. The washe level is below the door glass. the rinse level comes up 3 cm on the glass. The washer is designed to be water efficent. If you are not getting water this high, look at the pressure switch hose, maybe it is restricted and causing the pressure to be held in the washer.

There can be 2 reasons. The centre section dispenses the fabric softener in the last rinse. It works on a syphon effect.
If it is not assembled correctly the water flows over the side to avoid a flood and leaves the middle section full at the end. Make sure the inner pipe is inside the outer pipe and that both are completely clear of softener residue. As you have just reassembled it this is the most likely cause.
The second reason is the water inlet can become blocked therefore not creating sufficient flow to create a syphon effect. It gets blocked with black gunk and needs to be cleaned with pipe cleaners or a long cable tie. There are 4 rectangular holes above the centre section, near the front. They can be seen easily if you take the drawer out.
Hope this helps

The timer/controller is faulty.
Replacement is the only fix.

99% probability that the drive belt has come off. Can you hear the motor whizzing when it should be turning the drum, but the drum doesn't move? If so then it will certainly be the belt off.... If you can't hear the motor then the motor its self may be shot. Most machines allow you to remove the back. If the belt IS off, then fit it to the MOTOR first, then slip it over the edge of the large wheel on the back of the drum and turn the wheel by hand to ease the belt back onto the wheel.
Now the question: Why did it come off? Your happiest hope is that you had a very heavy and uneven load in when it came off and that the load shook the machine so violently that it caused the belt to come off. This is good, don't overload the machine and it won't happen again. If this isn't the case, and it happens again, hope the belt is worn out and stretched (Hate to say it, but this is quite unlikely. Take it to the place where you can buy a new belt, measure your belt against a new one to find out). LAstly, sadly most likely and most expensive is the possibility that the belt came off because the rear bearing in the drum is worn out and allowed the drum to run out of line so the belt fell off. To test for this, open the front loading door of the machine and slip your fingers onto the drum while your thumb rests on the outer casing of the machine. Lift and squeeze the drum with your fingers, pulling it towards your thumb. The drum should rock back and forth on its springs, this is normal. If you hear a little clunk and you can see the inner drum moving while the outer drum (where the rubber gasket is fixed to the drum) stays stationary in relation to the inner drum moving up and down, you probably have a shot rear bearing. For most machines, this fault is not an ameture fix and its time to call in the repair man. Be prepared for the news that (more than 50% of the time) this problem is more expensive to fix that the machine is worth if it is getting on in years. If this is the case, weigh up the cost of the repair to an old out of warranty machine, against putting the cash toward a new machine that will give you the peace of mind of a warranty if thisgs go wrong
