The water inlet valve is passing a little water through in the unenergized state. Turn the water supply valves off and wait. If the filling up stops replace the machine's inlet valve and if you can, flush your water pipes and water heater before hooking the washer back up

During filling reaches fL before finished filling and stops

Not sure if this was explained to u but these washers do not fill like the old top loads did... the machine uses very little water, the clothes are rolled over and over through the water as it cascades down and up through the agitator. If you look at the agitator you'll notice it does not have an elongated spindle, it's not required. Although the machine doesn't fill your clothes will be fully washed, this design was developed to conserve water...

Me and my kids are going nuts because everytime we wash something, it goes off balance the clothes are wet and it flashes ue ''uneven'' even if it is only 1 piece of clothing . I have adjusted all the legs...

if the cycle does not gets complete then its --
it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Will fill and drain, not agitate or spin though

I am having the exact same problem with the same brand machine.  I put in a load of clothes to soak till the morning, but in the morning, the washing machine would only fill, spin, and drain.  The agitator would not wash the clothes, so they came out with the soap of course still crusted in.
