Question about Washing Machines
Hi, Sounds like it could be the lid switch. Open the lid and see if the lit switch actuator is boken or hanging down. Get me a model # and I can assist you further.

It sounds like the controller/timer is bad. If this is an old dial timer type control, can you turn the control and cause the washer to drain? If so, replace the timer control.
If it's an electronic control, then look for a failed sensor as it's very unlikely to be the control.

Water siphoning out the drain line
If the water is continues to fill and water is draining while it is filling or agitating, Check the height of the stand pipe. It should be about 36" above the floor. If the height is correct it may need to have an anti-siphoning valve installed into the drain line.
The washer fills and drains at the same time only on the rinse cycle.
Shut the machine off with timer during this period and raise the drain hose. If the water continues to drain, you will need to install an anti-siphon kit.

grab the agitator at the base and give it a quick push upward..remove and see if the white dome with bolt holding it down is stripped on the inside where it splines onto the transmission shaft. :)

Most likely it's the door switch that tells the washing machine that the door is open or closed.
It's usually on a lever of some sort as to not get the actual switch wet that contacts the door itself.
With the older machines in particular, they didn't find filling or agitating as dangerous. Only spinning was considered that way, so it could fill and agitate with the door open and spin only when it was closed. When it spins, it also turns the impeller (pump) in the direction to pump the water out.
The other possibility is that the transmission or motor has gone bad. The motor and transmission turn in one direction for agitation and in the opposite direction for spin. If the gears have stripped in the transmission or one of the primary windings has gone on the motor, it simply won't turn in that direction.

there is a coupling between the motor and the agitator coming out of the gear box if you can hear the motor running when the agitator should be moving then that will be your best bet however if the motor is not running during what should be the agitation cycle then you are probably looking at the sequencer control Good Luck
