Try resetting your water level control. If that doesn't help then set the water level control to the lowest setting and observe if level exceeds that setting. If so, you may possibly have a faulty water level control, or an obstruction in the air dome or water level control hose. This can be a tricky 1 to diagnose for a novice.

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:

SOURCE: fill will not stop
you may have a problem with your pressure switch. or sometimes they call it the water level switch.
try to use it in the small level and see if it would stop filling around medium or large quantities of water.
if it would stop filling , then replace the water level sensor.

remove front cover by sliding putty knife along top edge and pressing down on clips pull front off ck small hose attached to tub on left side look for a dark build up in tube pull off and clean..blockage will cause water level switch not to sense full tub of water..if tub just never fill ck drain hose for correct height from floor and loose fit in standpipe
