Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
Find the wiring diagram, it sounds like you have power to the pressure switch and none coming out. you need to look at the wiring diagram and determine which color wire runs to the water valve.
Now be very careful and check for power out of the pressure switch, with the timer on at the beginning of the wash cycle where the machine would fill with water, if you have power coming from the pressure switch you could have a bad mixing valve.
Is the water turned on for both the Hot and Cold supply?
If you select cold does the machine fill, with cold? also check warm, and Hot. if the macine fills with any water the pressure switch is not you problem. It could be the mixing valve.

The most likely failure is the water level pressure switch or a failed lid switch. If the washer will drain and spin then it's not a failed lid switch. If it will not drain and spin the likely failure is the lid switch.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has 3 wires attached to it, V (violet), P (Pink) and a T (tan) wire. When the tub is empty of water, contact V&P are closed to allow the tub to fill with water. Once the water level reaches the desired setting, contact V&P opens and then contact V&T closes to start the motor agitating. So, with this said if you were to unplug the washer and remove the wires from the water level pressure switch and test to see if terminals V&T is closing by using an ohm meter would indicate if the contact is closed or not.
