<p>Hi, thanks for using I know this may sound pretty basic, but have you verified that the water is turned on to the washer? Also, are you using "Flood Safe" hoses? They will have a small round fitting directly below the hose nozzle. May I please have the model number?</p><p> </p><p>Kelly</p>

This is actually my fourth load of the day and it just won't fill with water. Where do I find the model number?
Expert:  Kelly replied 8 years ago.
If you lift the lid it will be on a tag underneath the lid in the opening. Does the washer spin? I suspect the lid switch may be not actuating. Check to see if the screws on the LH lid hinge are tight...

It looks like the model number is XXXXX(NNN) NNN-NNNN It is spinning and it doesn't appear to be the lid hinge.

That is the serial number, but we can try a couple of things. On the temperature selector, try switching the water temps while in fill mode. See what happens and let me know...the model number is XXXXX the serial number.
