Fills with water and stops I do not hear timer clicking
Your help would be greatly appreciated. This has happened before. The tub fills and then stops. I believe it is a overload problem and the machine automatically turns off. I had it taken out and repaired beofre. They said it was a rtest button that needed to be reset - that's all. But $75 later... If you could tell me where the reset button is located I can do it myself and save on money and hassle. I have to miss work to be there for pick up and delivery.
there is a re set portion of the load size on the front of machine -- but that is not the reset button the repairman talked about
thank you in advance for your help

Re: fills with water and stops I do not hear timer...
Your repairman was pulling your leg. There is no "reset" switch on these. The lid switch is bad. You know how, when it is washing clothes, you can lift the lid and the machine shuts down? That's the lid switch doing that. Now, you lid switch is failed, so the machine thinks the lid is open. Replace the switch and all is well in the world.

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.
for the second problem wher the water runs and never reaches level, check to make sure the drain hose is higher than the water level. if you allow the drain hose to come out of the machine and lay right on the floor with out first coming up above the height of the tub, the water will run out as fast as it comes in. hope this helps, let me know
A defective pressure switch can interfere with the cycles that depend upon the switch to indicate when water has filled or emptied from the tub. It can also result in underfilling or overfilling of the tub. The switch routes current from the timer control to the temperature switch and the water inlet valve when the tub needs to be filled. Once full, the pressure switch cuts the current and reroutes it to the motor on the timer control to continue the cycle.
either your waterlevel switch is bad or the hose from the tub to the switch is leaking air. more info would help..ie do you have to turn the water off at the wall for the water to stop rising or do you just have to push the timer knob in?? let me know, i can definitely help to diagnose!!
