Sounds like your control board is shot. Do you have 120VAC going into it?

Re: Washing Machine Wont Fill and cycles unresponsive,...

My comment is generic to all washing machines in which there is a fill problem. Finally I remembered that when we did an upgrade on our basement I installed the type of fill hose that will prevent flooding. Sure enough, when I interchanged the hoses the problem switched from no hot to no cold. A flood prevention mechanism had malfunctioned on one hose and the reset feature did not work. A return to Home Depot will complete the solution to my problem - but I feel humbled to have overlooked the possibility that this simple malfunction had caused the grief.

Smart drive 085

the buzzing noise is the pump trying to work, but it cannot due to a blockage. unplug the washer and you can lean the washer backwards and remove the pump to unblock. the fill error is probably unrelated, and is an inlet valve issue.

Fisher and Paaykel Smart Drive 708 not working once filled with water.

You need to check your lid switch & out of balance switch for
corrosion and replace if faulty.
Your out of balance switch is under the big yellow motor controller
OOB switch Is where the grey plate is on this picture.

Starts and stops

A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

Try taking the cold hose of at the tap and check to see if has a little mesh filter in there. This could be blocked up with gunk.

Spin the fan on water pump (you can acess with difficulty from bottom of washer) if it has a little sand in it, it may clear. It is possible to remove water pump if mechanically minded and see if something small eg staple or 5c coin is stuck in it if this dosn't work or you may find you need to replace water pump.
