have a technician check it out as it may be a board problem
normally the fill level switch ,when the set water level is reached activates 2 things
it stops the water in and at the same time moves the program on to start the wash cycle
so it is either that switch or the program board
sounds like you have a problem with the main control board. you can order a new one from appliancerepair.com and if it turns out not to be the problem they allow you to return it for a full refund. great company!
could b pressure switch tube is blocked or your control board with the pressure switch attached is faulty. empty water from machine, remove pressure switch hose from control board, blow thru tube to remove any blockages, refit tube. turn on cycle, select low water level, push start, after about 30sec"s push start again, that should stop it filling straight away. if the water stops push start again to continue filling. if it doesnt stop filling after restarting the cycle then it is your control module.if the water doesnt stop filling after the 30 sec stop it is the water valves. by the way what country do u live in because $120 seems to b alittle too expensive. please reply 4 more help.
probably a bad door switch, if you can take the door or top off and find the wires running to the switch take the wires off theswitch and plug them together by wrapping electrical tape around them and then try the washer. If that dont work may be a bad control board
If your machine is a FAV6800AWW or FAV9800AWW the (upside down u and f) may be a “NF” for no fill error.The washer has tried to fill the machine with water and has sensed a water fill issue.The control board has shut the wash cycle down with an “NF” error to the display because of excess time to complete the water fill portion of the wash cycle. Will the machine complete the cycle with Hot water only or Cold water only?I would do a Quick Wash cycle just to test with an empty wash basket. Regardless of the above test and assuming you have good water pressure for both Hot and Cold supplies to the washer I would do the following. Close the water source valves to the washer and remove the Hot and Cold hose connections at the back of the machine and check for clogged inlet screens.If the water inlet screens are free of restrictions I would go into Service Mode and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves on one at a time and make sure the tub will fill with about 2 inches of water in about 3 minutes in service mode.Check both Hot and Cold inlet valves individually see page 16 of the SM Board Output Test, enter service mode and do the function test for both Hot and Cold Water Valve’s.If the inlet screens are clean and you have water fill restrictions in service mode we may need to look at replacing the water inlet valve assembly.You can turn on the drain pump in service mode to empty the tub or just start a wash cycle and the machine will empty the tub.

Possible a bad motor control board. Depending on the age of the washer, you may need to replace the motor control board and the motor as a kit. Also be sure to test that the motor control board is getting power, I've seen cases of the motor/ motor control failing and taking out the main control also. The tech sheet is in the console and should walk you through the steps.
In sounds to me like you have a motor issue. We have found that on these particuliar models, that the motor tries to run in both speeds at the same time. If you already replaced the control board, then you will have to get a new motor kit. This kit includes directions as well as a new wiring harness and start capacitor. You would have to remove the old motor and rewire the wiring harness (instructions included with the kit) and add the new start capacitor (instructions also included). Job is'nt really that hard to do. Front cover would be all you would need to remove to get to all the parts. Good luck and let me know how it turns out or if you need any additional help. Jim
