Question about Washing Machines
The machine not filling and carrying on with the cycle is quite unusual.
If the machine advances through the cycle without filling, and without manually advancing the cycle, then it is either a defective water level sensing (pressure switch), or a faulty timer board.
In this case the job is done testing or replacing water level switch (part is not expensive), then if that does not work, replacing the timer board.
The inlet valve may also be tested.
If instead you have to advance manually the cycle, check inlet valve and pressure switch.
The inlet valve may be tested reading Ohms ats terminal (must have continuity). A definitive test is done energizing the valve.
The pressure switch is more difficult to test. This has three contacts and two circuits. The pressure switch opens one circuit and closes the other when water level has been reached (tub full). It is usually replaced rather than testing it.
