If washer does not fill.
If water is not getting into the machine, check the following:
To start cut power to the applianc3e for five minutes, this can fix a jammed timer control.
Check if the hot and cold water faucets are connected, and have good pressure.
If that does not work you may need to call a repairman to test the following:
The inlet valve must be tested by energizing it , testing valve solenoid, and reading voltages to identify a fault in wiring (contact).
If the inlet valve is fine when tested, worth having a look at the water level switch, if it is stuck on overfill position , it will prevent water from getting into the machine.
Lastly,the timer control board should be tested, to ensure that the problem is not a faulty timer keeping the inlet valve on close position.

I've had my Duet for 5+ years with no odor until the past 6 months or so. Even changing to a more fragrant fabric softener didn't make my cleaned clothes and towels smell clean. I noticed it especially when I would grab my towel after a shower. For a while I thought someone else was using my towel and stinking it up. Then I realized it was the whole laundry. ( I was having my laundry done for me... otherwise I probably would have realized it sooner. After reading all the suggestions for resolving this sour odor I thought I would try some of the ideas suggested that I hadn't already tried. Then it dawned on me that about 6 months ago I switched from a powdered detergent (SA8, an Amwy/Quixtar product) and dryer sheets to a well-known well-ranked Liquid Detergent and a fabric softener. I only switched because my son like the way his friend's laundry smelled when he borrowed a shirt. I was using fragrance-free products. So I had fragrant laundry for a short time. Then it started to smell sour. Maybe this change was the cause. So I've ordered another box of the powdered detergent and I'm going back to dryer sheets.
In the meantime I'm still doing stinky laundry. Same day I order new detergent, I decide to wash a load with some very stained baseball pants. I sometimes use a small amount (1/4 cup) of Oxy Clean, with my detergent but I decided to go full-strength which on the box said 1 cup. Hot water wash. Put it in with the clothes. Same liquid detergent, no fabric softener. When I took out the laundry, for the first time in months, it smelled clean. No stale, sour odor. Next load, nice smell again. Decided to do one more load with 1 cup Oxy Clean again. I'm still going to switch back to the SA8 (which is by the way highly ranked by Consumer's reports) and dryer sheets.
By the way, a few weeks ago I had to disconect the water discharge line behind the washer. The sludgy goo that was in the line and machine where the two connected was disgusting, but didn't smell bad. I cleaned it out with my finger. Ugh!
So it's now several months later. My clothes smell clean, as does my washer. I switched to powder and only occasionally use liquid softener. Still occasionally use the full dose of Oxyclean with a hot load. I occasionally wipe down the door and seal... especially the bottom of the window, and always leave the door ajar when not in use.

It is under warrenty call the store where you bought it and have them look at it. If you mess with it it will void your warrenty, belt may not be working or transmisson may not be shifting. The house call will be at no charge.

Testimonial: "thankyou for the help, I thought I had just made a bad buy. They sent someone out right away and it turns out this particular machine had a bad part."
I would seriously consider getting a newer machine. A brown stain could be rust, or an oil leak. Either way it probably is not worth putting any money into. If this helps, please rate my answer. Thank you.
