That corrosion has probably also occured in the solenoid valves that let water in or not (especially sounds like it if it happened over a period of time). You can probably clean them up a couple of times before they need replacing - get any mechanically minded person to do it and get them to grease them well. Couldn't find an inside layout diagram online, so I am guessing a bit, but they are usually easy enough to find - if you can get the back cover off or see up from the base, follow the two water hoses as they go into the washer. the first thing of any size they should come to is a thing that probably looks like a valve with a square plastic box in place of the handle. The box will be only connected by two wires up towards the control electronics. The bit that will need cleaning is most likely to be the part that the water goes through, but the electrical side can also corrode if wet, so is worth a check. (these are not too complicated inside). If you fancy doing it yourself then post me a couple of photos of what you have inside and I can try and talk you through it. If the solenoid valves need replacing, they are fairly standard so any washing machine shop should be able to get them, any problems please ask again and I can hopefully source some online for you. Hope this helps :)

Lanes, you probably have a bad inlet valve, Remove the hoses at the washer and see if the valve screens are plugged. If they are ok, you will want to see if you have power at the valves. To do this you will have to remove the cabinet and test them with a meter. Remove the 2 screws behind the top consol, the consol will flip up. Remove the 2 snap springs and the cabinet will lift off forward. Jump out the lid switch harness and put the timer to fill. At the valves see if you have 120V with the timer pulled out. If not it would be a timer issue. If you have voltage and no fill, then it's the valve. Fill valve part number is 3955673. Catriver.
