Close your external inlet valve to the machine. Disconnect hose of washing machine from the valve; keep a bucket there and open the valve to see if water comes well. Next check the screens (filters) on the hose, clean well. This shd be done on both ends of the hose/s. Refit carefully. Check for leaks. If water still (don't forget to open the valve!) does not enter machine change the inlet valve of your wash machine. Can be done yourself. Rate me pl...........if helped.

OK Problem located (without Diagnostics) , the problem was a faulty START/PAUSE button. I took the display board apart and fiddled with the button (whilst the power was UNPLUGGED) Starts almost every time, when it does`nt fiddle some more.

The problem is design. Not all of the water is getting out after each
cycle and not all of the soap gets fully dissolved. After awhile, this
mucky slime gets 1n the drain hoses, pump and filter - and they all
smell musty - especially when the machine sits empty with the door
closed between loads.
You need to clean the innards of the machine by doing a load without clothes on hottest setting (Whites) and depending whether the smell is bacterial (add 1 cup White Vinegar), fungal (add 1 Cup Bleach) or clogged filter (add 1cup Arm and Hammer with 1/4 cup SALT), this should do it
(Vinegar for Bacteria, Bleach for Fungus and Arm and Hammer with SALT to soften and loosen the slime)
Choose from above (not all 3 at once tho) and fill the machine with water and let run without clothes.
I would do the A&H with salt first, let cycle complete, then restart and add a cup of Vinegar, tel cycle finish then redo with 1 cup bleach
After treatment, leave the front door open after doing laundry from now on so it can thoroughly dry out and get air circulation. - Just open, not WIDE open ;-)
