    Does the water shut off? I suspect you have a relay problem that kicks the timer on after the fill sensor gets triggered and then again it could be the timer. If it shuts off the water then the fill switch is working, What type of washer is it?

As mentioned if the washer on start of function/program , allows water to come in , then stops as the level is reached, the program controller must then output to the main motor to spin. If there is voltage to the motor but the motor hums, then check the capacitor or if the motor is jammed or the spindle shaft is jammed.
If there is no output to motor, check the door switch , if not the controller is faulty.
