It's behind the bottom kick plate, which is held in place by clips at the bottom right, centre and left. Slip your fingers under the kick plate on the right and tug up and forward until the clip releases. Repeat in the centre and on the left. You will see the cap (Looks like fuel cap) which unscrews. To save getting wet, if you can pull the machine out and tip it back 45 degrees, most of the water in the drum will run to the back and won't come out when you undo the cap. SOME will still escape, so have towels ready!
Your water level switch could be defective. This switch has a plastic 1/4 hose connected from your tub to the switch. (should be easy to find.) Make sure this hose is connected to your tub and switch and the line has no holes. It is easy to test the switch by disconnecting the line from the tub and while water is flowing into your washer, Blow into the line. The pressure will stop the water flow. If not, Bad level switch.

I have the same problem. The dial does not start on the setting you set it to. It just clicks around then stops. I called out an engineer who said he thinks it is the control panel panel board. Didn't know if he could get the part which would be expensive. I was hoping someone would have the answer.
Clean the pump filter screen.... Remove bottom front panel see filter housing located next to pump unscrew cap by turning counter clockwise... Clean/remove debris located inside(place shallow pan under housing and remove cap slowly so you can reinstall if pan get full)... Be prepared for some water to leak out when cap is removed(could be up to several gallons depending on how clogged up it is) .
Remove the lower kick plate. Unscrew the two screws holding the kick plate in place, and gently pull off to remove. The kick plate is the lower outside cover of the washing machine.
Place a small bucket under the white hose. Remove the cap on the white hose by untwisting it. Allow any remaining water in the hose to drain into the small bucket. There shouldn't be much water, but there can be some.
Look inside the white hose. Remove any visible obstructions or lint.
Look inside the hose cap. This is where the lint filter is. Remove any visible lint with your fingers. Rinse the hose cap under warm water to remove any remaining lint.
Twist the cap back onto the white hose. Put the kick plate back in place. Screw back on.
Remove the bottom casing covering the front of the machine just above the floor. Unscrew the circular cap SLOWLY- beware of vast amounts of water escaping though!
I had to use a low height roasting pan to catch water, and just unscrew the cap enough so as to control the flow of water, and enable to empty water away until its all gone. Incidentally, an old hairgrip was found to be the cause of my problem.
Confusingly, "clean pump" meant clean filter!
Plug off the wall. Would be good to siphon out maximum water from inside the washer first. The filter is in the front, remove 3 screws under the front panel, remove the filter cap by turning to the left. (Right of the filter is the pump motor.)To collect the water when removing the filter cap you need a wet vac or a good plastic garbage bag, there could be a lot. Clear out the junk.Replace as you dismantled.If you still have a problem, you have to check the pump to see if anything is clogging it.The cover twists off.
If this is a whirlpool front load washer I have a model# GHW9100LW1 which has a filter at the front bottom of washer there is three screws to be removed then remove cover this should expose the water pump which has a cap on the front take hold of the grip and turn counter clock wise be sure to have a towel handy for there will probably be some water that will come out after loosening the handle all the way the filter part should pull out remove the trash and replace back in the pump note the filter will only go in one way re-tighten the nut and replace the cover that should fix the problem.
