This is a common symptom of a clogged or failed water inlet valve (alos known as a mixing valve). If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you are using well water, it is common for the water inlet valve to clog with rust or sediment. You can remove the valve and clean it if you wish to try and see if the problem will go away. Soaking the valve in some distilled white vinegar can help get rid of sediment and/or deposits. Just make sure you do not submerge the electrical solenoids. If that does not correct the problem, you can simply replace the valve altogether. The following link explains how:

The link gives some helpful advice in eliminating other causes of the a slow fill or no fill problem as well. You can find a replacement valve at Just type in your complete model number and the part will be listed as item number 18 (part #285805) under the "Controls and Rear Panel" heading. For comparative pricing, you may also try They sometimes carry the part for less. Use the part number provided for your search.

I hope this helps you. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.

Water can't fill up

Check and clean out filter inside the connector to the washer

If that is clean
Switch the water off and then start the machine cycle , you should hear a buzzing sound from the area where the inlet hose connects to the washer

If there is no buzzing and the inlet filter is clean you need a new fill valve
