Re: it fills with water and stops
It sounds like it's the timer.
A lot of KNOBS or TIMERS just get to much gunk in the circuits in them!
With the OLD TIMERS you could open it up and spray it with a can of electrical cleaner (same as they sell for computers) and a lot of the time it would fix the problem! This should also work on your circuit boards in a new appliance just be sure to read and follow the directions carefully! Open up & expose the timer control knob circuits, brush off as much dust and lint as possible by hand then spray with ELECTRICAL CLEANER as directed ON THE CAN and try running it again!
I always try this first as the cost is low and it often works!
I recommend Radio Shack for advice & purchase! Cost about $10.

I have had similar situation with my top load washer over the years. It has been the timer 3 times and the water pump 1 time.
How I came up with it being the timer. The knob which you set it on the type wash you want. Put it on a different cycle and see if it completes the wash cycle. example if my washer is not working when I put it on heavy wash cycle I might put it on the casual wash cycle. If you change the wash cycle and it goes through the complete cycle it is probably the timer which is part of the knob you change for different wash cycles with.
If it stops when it is time to empty the tub on all cycles it may be the water pump which empties the tub. The one time I had a problem with the water pump it was a small piece of coal had the pump locked up. I never figured how it got out of the tub and to the pump but I put it back together and it worked fine.
It should not go into the spin cycle if the tub is full of water.
Two of the timers I bought cost 40 - 60 dollars. One was 140 dollars I bought a new washer that time because the washer only cost 220 dollars.
There is still water in the machine , the pressure sensor my not be operating there is a loose contact in the motor spin winding or the timer no supply voltage is going to the motor check the votlage at the motor at spin cycle
well the part that tells the water to stop running in is the pressure switch if the water valve is working properly so disconnect the power and if the water continues to run in it is the water valve just replace it
If the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

To javed_iqb904, does the drum actually fill or does it seem like that water is draining out as it's filling?
To neonllama19, if it fills with the tap on and the machine off, it sounds like a defective water valve. If it never stopped filling it sounds like a defective pressure switch or hose to the pressure switch is loose or diconnected.
