Washer machine was filled of water but doesn't run
We switch the washer with my sister but people who delivered it disconnect the tubes. Now, I tried to place everything as I though should be but seems that I did not do it the right way because it is not running. It filled but did not wash or drain. What should I do?

If this only happens when the machine is turned on,the tube from the tub to the water level switch is pinched or broken. If the clear plastic tube is not pinched or broken,the water level switch in the control console is bad. If the machine lets water through when it is in the OFF position,the water valve where the hoses connect are bad.
If the machine doesn't stop filling, it can be one of 2 problems. 1. the inlet valve has jammed open - water will continue to come thro when machine is switched off. 2. the pressure switch has failed. This is located at the top of the machine under the top cover and has a tube about 1/4 inch diameter attached to it, leading down to the drum. As water enters the drum, pressure builds up in this tube & operates the pressure switch turning off the inlet valve. Either the pressure switch is faulty or, more likely, the tube has a hole(maybe tiny) in it and is not allowing the pressure to build up. To test the switch, pull off the tube at the switch. Connect another similar piece of tubing to the switch about a foot long. Switch the machine to start filling. Blow down your new tube to the switch. The pressure you create should switch off the inlet valve while you keep the pressure up. If the water stops coming in, the switch is ok - suspect the tube. If the machine continues to fill, the switch is faulty.
water level pressure switch tube is clogged with lint or bladder in pressure switch is bad. disconnect power to washer open timer console look for a clear rubber hose disconnect fron switch and blow in tube a couple times reconnect tube and put unit on drain and spin for a second then retrying unit for water level fill put washer on small load water size and test if it continues to fill replace pressure switch...
Here are a couple of things you can check to hopefully get to the bottom of your problem....
First of all, try unplugging the washer. Is the water still entering the washer? If so, you should replace the water valve, as it appears it may be stuck open. It's the plastic piece where the water lines are attached to the washer.
If this is not the case, then there may be a problem with your water level control. It's a fairly simple apparatus usually located inside the panel. You'll be able to identify it by a small hose (about 1/4 inch or so in diameter) connecting it to the basin. Check and make sure the hose is attached and isn't broken or pinched. If so, the washer isn't aware the water level has risen to it's pre-set level and like the Little Engine That Could, it will keep filling. :(
If the hose is attached, another little trick to use is to disconnect the hose from the basin, turn the washer on, and while the water is filling the machine, blow gently into the hose to try and trip the switch. If nothing changes and the water doesn't stop filling, the problem may lie in the water level switch itself.
I hope this helps! :) Let me know if I can be of further assistance!
This sounds like a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start appropriate cycle. Make sure there is no damage to or obstructions in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
Check if you have power to the inlet solenoid/valve where the hose connects to the machine. There is a thin tube running from the outer drum at the back of the machine to a pressure switch. This pressure switch controls the water level in the washer. Remove this tube from the pressure switch and blow back into the machine. There could be a blockage in the tube. To check if the pressure switch is faulty, pull the tube off the pressure switch and let the machine fill. If the machine fills to a high level, switch it off before it overflows. Replace the pressure switch.
There's an air tube connected to the back of the water level switch, If that is kinked/pinched/crimped/disconnected or has a hole in it... the pressure switch will "think" there's no water in the tub and thus continue to fill it. Access your control panel and verify your air tube connection @ the level switch.
