Question about Washing Machines
Parts that may be involved in filling problem are inlet hose and lines, inlet valve , pressure switch (this detects the water level), and finally the timer control board.
Start disconnecting power, check that the inlet hose is not kinked or blocked, and ensure that there is pressure from the lines.
next steps before eventually going for control board are testing the inlet valve and the pressure switch.
The inlet valve is tested reading Ohms at its contacts, if Ohms go to infinity then the solenoid is open and the valve is tested. The valve may also be mechanically faulty. A full test involve Volts reading at valve contacts.
The pressure switch is more difficult to test, as full testing is done reading Ohms with tub full. Try cleaning the tube attached to the sensor, blow inside the tube to remove blockage. If that does not work try replacing the sensor, the part is not expensive.
If all that does not solve the problem, then the timer board is defective. Full testing is done reading voltage at board terminal, but if you have done all testing above, you can replace the board at this point.
Testing must be done by a technician.
