Question about Washing Machines
If this is a top load washer then I would start with the
door safety switch. Check with an ohm meter. Open
would be infinite ohms. Closed would be a short.
Next would be the water level pressure switch. I usually
take the hose off of it and put another hose on. Then I
blow into the hose and listen for a click. You can also
use an ohm meter to see if you're making contact.
Next would be a costly circuit board.

The fact that it does not fill completely can be related to a problem with the water-level switch, that regulates the water level.
See from Repairclinic:
"This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch."
However, when it is only the switch the mashine usually completes the cycle, but with less water than normal.
A possibilty is that either the timer is faulty or there is a problem with the water supply.
Check that water is coming from water supply with regular pressure, and that hoses back there are not obstructed.
More likely you will have to replace the timer.
See again from Repairclinic:
"When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
You can find parts at the following websites, you need to input your model number. If the part is not listed contact them.

Check to load size selector switch, sounds like tube came off of it. The tube goes from switch to bottom of tube, tells machine what size load and when to turn off water.
