When I put the washing machine to wash mode it starts to agitate but no water goes into the machine. If I hold the knob that says small large or extra large load in betweeen xlarge and large the water enters the machine. As soon as i release the knob the water stopes. When it gets to rinse it will not fill with water. Any suggestions would help.

if this is a top loader put a pencil into the lid switch opening if the machine spins and drains when the timer knob says it should the tab on the lid or the lid switch has failed...replace the switch or the tab that goes into the lid switch opening
Washers start in fill mode as it requires the level of water set to start the agitator mode.. If your machine goes immediately to agitate then I would think that the agitator control module is failed and needs replacement. have an appliance electrician check it out.
With the tub empty disconnect the air hose from the water level switch in the console. Blow through it to see if its kinked or restricted. Check the air bell for a buildup of **** especially near the opening where the air hose attaches.
If all is OK reattach the hose and disconnect it from the air bell. Turn your water off and set it to wash. Blow through the hose to see if the switch goes from fill to agitate.
The problem is quiet obvious and it is the water level pressure switch behind and connected to the load size switch knob. The pressure switch is stuck in the full position that's why the machine doesn't fill and it goes directly to agitate. Holding the load size switch in between load sizes releases the contacts from full position and allow the machine to fill as long as the switch is held on.
power then release the console from the top of the cabinet depending on
the model of your machine then pull forward and up on the
console and lay it back on the hinges.
Behind and connected to the load size switch under the console is the water level pressure switch with a clear hose attached to it.
Remove the pressure hose from the pressure switch then reinstall the console and reconnect power. Start The pressBlow air forcefully into the pressure swic
open the console and find the pressure switch. it has a clear hose attached to it. pull the hose off the switch and turn on the washer. if water starts to enter shut it off and blow through it back to the tub. some piece of junk may have plugged it causing the switch to "think" the tub is full of water. put the hos back on and run a short spin cycle to reset it and try again making sure to run a small load to see if it shuts off properly. if no water enters when hose is pulled off most likely bad pressure switch. keep the lid closed while doing these tests. some units wont work w/lid open.
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
