it has a self cleaning filter mounted under the tub. if you want to clean out the tub and filter thoroughly then:
  • run a cycle with no clothes using hot water and a gallon or two of bleach. 
  • after the tub has filled up add a teaspoon or less of dish liquid like palmolive. this acts like a surfactant for the bleach. 
  • make sure you also run an extra rinse cycle to make sure you have all the bleach out of the machine before putting clothes in.

You possibly could have a bad lid switch. The machine may think you still have the lid up and that is why it stops and will not do anything else.

Your mixing valve sounds like it is dead. Pretty easy fix! Do some Googling to find out how to install your particular model and type. Write down your Brand name model number and get a new mixing valve online. bada bing! You just saved yourself $150.

Can you easily turn the motor by hand? If not, the motor bearings may need oil on the felt pads which surround them. Dribble it down beside the shaft at each end (after removing from washer and standing vertically). Any automotive engine oil would be fine.

The pressure switch has to be satisfied first, then it will agitate. There is a way to force the agitation, but hooking up the water would be easiest. Hope this helps
