The model number you have listed is not a model number. Can I get the correct model number to better assist you? Also if you advance the washer to spin, will the washer still spin?

OK perfect, so then your problem is really that the washer is just not filling up with water for the rinse cycle. Check to see if the washer fills with cold water on the wash cycle and if so then you know your electronic water valve isn't a problem and you have cold water getting to the washer. Hot water isn't used for rinsing so if only hot water were working then that would allow the washer to go through the wash cycle but not the rinse cycle. Either way, if you find that the washer does wash with cold water, you need to order and replace the sensor switch inside the control panel---it's the only part with a small rubber hose connected to it. This sensor switch monitors the water level, selects the temperatures, and sends power to the water valves. Below is a link to the part you'd need for your model.
