Hi Same problem but easy to fix.
Remove back cover of machine. Look to the lower end of the bowl and you will notice a stainless steel wire with hook attached. If this is hanging loose that will be your problem. Reattach the hook to the grey coloured lever , it has a hole drilled through it at the extremity. The wire pulls on this lever to disengage the drum brake during the spin cycle.

This has a strong indication that the machine needs a controller. A
controller can be from $80 - $400 depending on model and type. Good
news is they are generally easy to change. I recommend a new knob with
the controller as you will likely break it getting it off without
knowledge and special tools.

One of the most common problems encountered with washing machines that need repairs, including Baumatic machines, is no water coming into the machine or the soap not being taken from the soap dispenser box. There are two main reasons why this could happen, 1. because the water has been turned off inadvertently from somewhere, or 2. because the water inlet valve as become faulty or blocked.
If your appliance is not taking in water the first thing you need to know is if the problem is with the hot or cold supply, to find out you can put your appliance onto a white wash cycle and start the machine this should bring hot water into the machine and you will know within a few minutes if the hot water supply is working or not, and to find out if the cold supply is working or not select stop/reset and then select the drain or spin cycle and this will empty the machine of any water, now select the rinse cycle and this should bring cold water into the machine and you will know within a few minutes if the cold water supply is working or not, once you are sure of the results select stop/reset and then select drain or spin again to empty any water that may have entered the appliance.
At this stage you should know whether the hot or cold supply is at fault, the next thing you need to check is that the water as not been turned off inadvertently, check both the stop **** and the washing machine connector valve/s, to see if you can tell if it as been turned off or not, if you think it as, turn it back on and do the hot and cold cycle test above for the cycle that failed, if the water is still not coming into the appliance you know need to turn the water off from the washing machine inlet valve/s one at a time and slowly disconnect the the inlet pipe/s from the washing machine side and point the washing machine inlet pipe it into a bucket and then turn the water back on, you should be checking to see that the water is on and also that the water pressure is OK.
There is a good chance your appliance could be working OK now, but If the test above shows the water is on and the pressure is OK but the washing machine is still not taking in water, you will need to have t the water inlet valve and or the water pressure switch and water pressure chamber tested, the diagnosis procedure covered here will work for Baumatic washing machines that need repairs, it will also work for most other makes.hope this helps
