    Already checked these and still doing this. It now just clicks continuously when power switched on. It's a Fisher and Paykel product and been most reliable.

    My washer is less than 3 yrs old. It has worked great till today. It did not fill all the way before it started agitating. I turned it off and reset the cycle and it would not fill at all. If I leave it on it will click back and forth from trying to fill to agitating. I unplugged from power then plugged back in and now it will not do anything at all.

    My washing machine also has the problem of not working at all. I started it, and when it was filled with water is completely stopped. The power light isn't even on. Anything I can do without expert help?

Check the filters on both sides of the inlet water line. Let me know with your results for further assistance if will be needed. Good luck!

    check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)).
    If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!
    Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one.
    Good luck

If you open lid during operation, washer fills all the way to top

if you really want to see, simply stick an object (like flathead screwdriver) into the little hole that the lid presses into to click the switch, hold it there

Water gets drained automatically without fills the water

HI there. You drain out pipe need to have a kink and the kink need to be higher than the highest point of when the machine is filled with water or else gravity will let the water drain out as you fill it up. HOpe it works.
