Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.

You either have a bad timer, transmission, or the agitator is stripped on the splined shaft

Check your motor drive coupler. Tilt washer back against wall and look between motor and transmission . You will see a rubber grommet and two plastic couplers on each end of rubber , They may appear broken or you will see rubber shavings under washer.

My F&P washing mach is going thru the cycles fine but it has an annoying squeak when filling up? It's only a few years old, a smart touch. It also squeaks on the wash cycle

very hard to identify without an inspection. Strange to find it squeeking on fill as well as wash maybe something simple . could be a suspension issue due to a weight factor

I have a Sears Kenmoore Series 70 model 100 washing maching. It's 14 years old. The problem is it will not dran water into the machine when I start my laundry. It goes directly into agitation. No water...

The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. 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.

the main water valve that the fill hoses connect too in the back of the washer is probably bad.
