Dirty water? If the washer takes in water as usual, but nothing else happens, the lid switch is bad.

Why would washer leak water

My wife developed a new idea about filling her toploader; first fill with water, then put the dirty washing in. No surprise, the dirties displaced the water which then spilled out on the floor. If you put the dirties in first it works the way it should. If this is not your problem you need to look for the water level sensor which is basically a tube sticking down into the water, most often in the back left corner. This could be blocked at the bottom with detritus from washables or, not very likely, scale. You may also have a defective sensor and need to replace it.
Good luck.

Not responding will not power off it is filled with water and does nothing but beep

If it is filled with water, it should be pumping out. If it does not, the control is likely bad. These controls have a VERY high rate of failure, so I suspect the control is faulty. However, try unplugging it first for about 5 minutes before replacing control.

Washer fills with water, but won't start to work. last week I replaced the valves because I wasn't getting hot water. Thats fixed. Now this problem started today.

Check your control board and the relays. This will be a power control problem meaning that you are calling for power and the system is not responding most likely due to a bad control board

Washing machine problem

I would also think it is a lid switch although this sounds like a pump is freezing up the works, can you hear a hum when you pull out the dial? If you can I would pop the access panel on the back and pull the dial out watching the motor to see if it pulls to one side.
