Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
Machine won't fill with water when i press start.
I would look at the water inlet valve solenoids. Also, make sure that the protective screens are clean and open in the inlet valve. Hope this helps you and best wishes.

The Calypso washers don't fill up with water where you can see it -- there's a reservoir under the plate at the bottom that fills up, then the machine pumps that water onto the top of the clothes while it swishes them around.

If you are not comfortable disconnecting the drained washer from power and water, and tipping it up so you can unscrew the bottom cover to do this, you can order Sears part # 3954702, which is the diagnostic paperwork that lets you run the washer through its paces one step at a time to help isolate problems.
However, the washer usually should have come with this paperwork, secreted in a plastic pouch up towards the top of the washer attached to the outer case way at the top (therefore hard to get to from the top without opening the top and sticking your arm to the inner surface of the outside case to find it).
Use a flashlight to look for it, and if you remove it be careful not to tear it up, and by all means do not lose it!
A basic diagnostic test is to Key Dance (press this sequence within 5 seconds total), to run the washer through its paces.
Prewash Options --> Wash Time --> Prewash Options --> Wash Time. The display will start at 99 and count down to 0 (seconds) and run all valves, motor and pump directions and functions, and water inlets.
