This sounds like the valves that let the water in are leaking, just a little bit. Over several hours, they leak enough to be noticed.

You can have those valves replaced, or you could shut off the water going into the washer with the valves in your water supply. (the one's that are usually right next to where your hoses connect)

Wash cycle not filling with water


Does the washed show an error?

Check all hoses in back. Remove them from washer and ensure water is coming from lines (drain into bucket).

Unplug washer for several minutes, then try again.

Water runs into tub but does not fill?


be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.
