Kenmore washing machine model #417.98402301 is not filling

This answer was rated:

Kenmore washing machine model #417.98402301 is not filling on any wash cycle setting.
It does fill on rinse cycle. Could this be the timer switch?
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Can you double check that model number one more time please? It appears as though maybe 1 number might be off somewhere after the 417 . xxxxxxxxx?

Sorry, number is XXXXX

OK perfect, that works so thank you. So this appears to be a top load washer with a single pressure switch which means that you are correct. There is only one part that can stop the washer from filling in the wash cycle and not the rinse cycle and that is the timer control itself. You'll need to order and replace part number 134237200 and below is a link to the timer you'll need to order for this model number.
