SOURCE: Over filling with water
There are two reasons could cause washer's overfilling. - A defective water entrance valve - Water supply to the machine is done through an electromagnet valve,loocated at the water pipe's enterance to the machine. A defect in the valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it, and the valve may leak and drip water into the tub.You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from the machine before doing it !!!!! and to close water main tap to the machine. In case cleaning doesn't help, you should replace the valve. Water switch level - A diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. Open the rear panel, find the device and clear first any obstruction in the tube.In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube. In case it will not react, you should replace it. Good luck !!

the timer, electronic or mechanical is not advancing to the fill contact. if mechanical the cam contact may be burnt. if electronic the gated triac [solid state relay] is burned up [replace]

it will be to do with the pressure switch it may be faulty, but more often than not there is a blockage in the pressure chamber which is located at the bottom of the outer drum, check the chamber and the tube that goes up to the pressure switch to see if they are blocked if they are clear of obstruction then test the pressure switch,to do this unclip the pressure switch from the side of the machine but dont take the wires off once off pull the tube off that goes down to the pressure chamber once off blow in to the nossle on the pressure switch, you should hear it click and then when you release it should click again, if it doet click twice then that is your problem, hope that helps.
