Check for low water pressure. Clear screens in inlet valve. Do-not remove screens. This unit will turn off if not filled in specified time.

If the drain lines were plugged, there may have been enough pressure on the pump to fault out. Make sure the sewer line is completely open, as well as the lines at the pump.

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:

I have the same problem. I do not think this has a micro switch to activate the wash cycle or spin. I have looked carefully.
I have a gut feeling that this works on a sensor similar to that of a sonic car alarm. It may have gone out of sync and needs to be retuned.
I have tried to find the software but it is not commercially available.
