2)your hot water valve could be sticking on which in that case needs replacing take your lid off and when washer is off try and listen for water flowing through pipe

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and
stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws
panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose
see.The white filter cover is right in front.
Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect
Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the
put it back in carefully.
Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits
of soap and other such things can be
stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works
all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes
run the machine through a cycle.Also
helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump
lately.Put the pellet inside the
machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.
This is probably due to a pressure sensor fault, control board fault, or maybe as simple as a pipe come off.
The pressure sensor operates by air pressure building up in a sealed tube, and shuts off the water supply valve when the water presure reaches a limit.
Turn off machine, and drain the drum by placing the outlet pipe in a low bowl.
Remove the plug before opening machine.
Unscrew the screws along the top rear of the machine, and slide the lid back to take off. Inspect the small hoses around the drawer area for wear, damage and if they are still attached. Order replacements if they are damaged. The pressure switch will be connected to the end of one of them. It can be tested by simply removing it’s supply pipe and blowing hard down it. With a test meter, it can be tested for correct functioning. If this is not the problem, it is likely the control board is faulty, or very rarely the valve may need replacing if it never turns the water off, and is constantly stuck. If this leads to you solving the problem, please take a moment to rate as Fixya! so others may follow this advice. Thanks.
there may be a "door closed" position switch that has been "bumped" during the process of soap dispenser drawer removal. the switch prevents accidental water leaks if door is open. your machine has a switch that is telling the control board that the door is open
