A make and model would have been helpful.... most common cause for that is the motor brushes being worn out... happens a lot on Bosch machines that are 5 or 6 years old.... machine wants to turn the drum but can't because the motor can't turn.... if you select drain and it does that check the brushes... there are video's on you tube that will show you how
other cause could be water coming in to slow and machine timing out, check hose filters and water pressure... open soap draw while its filling. if water seems to be coming in at a decent rate refer to the above but check this first

SOURCE: washer filled with water but won't do anything

AT the time that you describe, the lid switch must be closed. Check that switch.

SOURCE: Water won't stop filling

If the water still flows in when the machine is off the inlet solenoid is faulty, if when you push start it fills and keeps filling then the problem will be with either the electronics or the pressure switch.
You really need to get someone who has experience with whirlpool machines to look at it for you.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool ultimate care II washer. It stopped in the middle of a load, full of water, and now it won't do anything. It won't drain, fill, move, or make any noises.

You will need to check the capacitor on the machine. It can be tested with a capacitance meter the easiest. It can be tested with a resistance meter, but this will tell you if the capacitor is shorted or open. It will not tell you the capacitive value if the component has drifted out of tolerance. You put the meter across the terminals and watch the display for counting up to infinity. This will occur quickly and disappear very quickly. Now reverse the leads on the terminals, (reverse the polarity). The same thing should happen, but a bit more pronounced. It will once again rise very quickly and go to an infinite reading. This tells you that the capacitor isn't shorted or open internally. Here is the capacitor to order if you should find it bad.

My samsung top loader washing machine sw65v9w won't stop filling with water

If the water stops when you stop the cycle, then the pressure sensor is at fault. If you need to turn the water supply off to stop it, then the water inlet valve is at fault.

Washing machine won't fill. i filled it by hand with water, it won't agitate either, only spins.

The inlet solenoid is probably bad. And it won't agitate unless it fills and stops filling automatically.

Top load maytag performa washer won`t stop flling both on wash and rinse cycles.

The switch the tube connects to shuts the water off. Will it cut off on high medium or low level. You can try blowing on the tube to see if it works. It should cut off when you blow.

Whirlpool Sm8525079 Rev fills up with water, but won't agitate.

Your lid switch has a fault, Sometimes the switch can bend which means that it won't always operate.

Kenmore washer 90 series continue to fill w/water. Load size won't stop the fill... had to shut off water source. won't get to agitate phase... just want to stay at fill stage... can drain, spin,...

Sounds like the fill switch needs to be replaced. A good way to test it is to set your machine on low fill and see if it fills past 3/4. If it does, it's the fill switch.
