Question about Washing Machines
The lid switch and the timer may be at fault here as well since replacing the valve didn't work and since it pulses.
The lid switch may be bad so to test it, you will need to open the control panel, and find the harness plug that feeds the lid switch. Disconnect the harness plug. With your Voltmeter/ampmeter/ohmmeter (multimeter, available at Radio Shack or any electronics store) on RX1, probe the terminals on the wires leading to the lid switch. There are three wires; probe the two that are not green. With the lid open, the reading should be infinity and with the lid closed, the reading should be zero. If not, replace the switch.
The timer may be bad, so to test it take the leads off of the timer. Set your Multimeter to RX100. Probe the leads and you should get a reading of 1,100 to 3,000 ohms. If not, replace the timer.
Let me know how this turns out.

HI, first you will need to make sure that the water supply valves are turned
on. Inspect the water supply hoses for kinks as well. If the hoses and faucet valve are in good condition, this will confirm a major issue within the Timer control module or control board, depending on which model.
The timer or, control board is the Principal initiator of the filling and draining of the unit. if the timer module or control board is malfunctioning, it will disrupt the normal fill action in this case. the Pulsating and dripping that you sated in your post is a strong indicator of a major control fault(short) within the timer or, control board. check the wiring harness for loose connections at the timer or control board. if the harness is connected properly with no loose connections, replace the timer or control board.
