Does your problem happen on all load size settings? Or just the largest setting.

I would say its a water level switch issue.

Here is a new one for your model, in case you need to order it:

Washer wont initially fill. all other operations


Check the screen on the inlet hose from water fill. If not, it is the timer that you set (it's not functional)

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Hot water runs constantly - overfills


This is often, if not all the time, a faulty fill valve, the fill valve has mechanically stuck open and is not fully shutting off when not the washer is not in use. This normally will become worse and could flood over the top of the washer = big mess .... replace the fill valve. The fill valve is the part the hot and cold water hoses are attached to.

Will not hold water during initial cycle


The drain hose needs to be lifted above the high fill level in washer.The easiest way to fix this is take the drain hose (if your drain hose starts from the bottom of machine and goes up)tie or strap it to the back of the washer so it cant sag or drop down and start syphoning the water.Remember the washer will drain out the water if the drain hose is lower than the amount of water in the tub.Thats why your making sure by tieing the drain hose to the highest point before it makes it way to the drain .

Washer overfills in rinse cycle


Kp, there was some models out there that had a issue with the timer. As long as the water is stopping during the initial fill I feel safe that you can rule out the pressure switch. You have already changed the fill valve. The only other thing is going to be the timer sending voltage to the valve. Part # 3955761 this is for the washer model number ending in 50LE0.
