Did you check to see if during the fill cycle you had power to the valves. This will take either volt meter or a lamp cord with a light socket on one end and a couple of alligator clips on the other. Check for voltage there unless you can hear the valves being opened. Sometimes if you stick a metal screw drive on the solenoid coil, not the connections, you can feel a magnetic effect. Let me know if you have already verified this or will do so. Bob
