My washing machine has stopped filling up with water. Checked the power and it works. When I turn the knob for the water level, small, medium or large halfway it starts to fill. When I let go the water stops filling.

there is a small tube running from the bottom of the tub up to a pressure switch in the control panel that is set by what ever wash level you want
when the pressure in that tube exceeds the pressure set by the knob it does 2 things
it turns off the inlet water solenoid to stop water coming in and then starts the wash cycle
as it is starting the wash cycle , it indicates that the stop solenoid for the water inlet is either still getting power or the stop valve is faulty
try replacing that water control valve first
Easy check for water filling problem like yours. Unplug the power and see if water still flows into machine. If yes----your inlet valve on the washer is stuck open and needs replaced. It is the part on the washer back where your fill hoses attach to. If the water is flowing into the machine while plugged in and it stops when unplugged, you have something in the control panel sending power to that inlet valve even when the machine is off. You would now need to find out where the power is coming from. If its an electronic control washer, the main board may need replaced.
If you have pressed start or pulled out the knob of the cycle unit and nothing happens I would be checking the operation of the water inlet solenoid . If it is not getting power or it is not opening the valve to allow filling to commence there will be no further action of the machine until the tub is filled to the desired level.
Hi Steveb6723 ,Just read your posting.Now here is a little test I need you to preform so I can tell if the problem is your water valves or your pressure switch system.Now 1st turn it to a normal cycle and only select the cold fill.Pull the knob out so it starts to fill.Now turn the machine off at the power point,Does the water stop filling straight away?If it does select hot fill and pull the knob.When it starts filling on hot water turn the power off again and see if the water stops straight away.Please reply and tell me if the hot or cold water continued to flow when the power was off.Looking forward to your reply.
1st I checked the power, compressor in garage had tripped the breaker to the washer circuit. This model has no bells or whistles to tell you if the power is on to the unit. Reset the breaker and unit works.
Water level sensor must be malfunctioning and possibly needs to be replaced and/or water inlet electric valve is malfunctioning (getting no "signal" from level sensor to stop filling). Turn of the machine, unplug it, turn off the water and call the repairman unless you'd like a flood or the fire in the house!
sounds like you are right the water inlet solenoid on the hot side is sticking remove the hoses and clean th escreen out and the valve try agin with a fill on hot to see if it stops on a small load if not replace the water inlet valve
