Is the washer actually filling with water even though it doesn't detect it? If so, then you likely have a bad flow meter which doesn't sense water flowing anymore. If water really isn't filling then you are correct that you likely have a bad valve.
The dryer will need to be removed to replace either part because they are both under the top panel of the washer so if you needed to schedule service, you'll want to call 1.***-***-****.

Unfortunately we can't control what fails. You are paying for my time helping you, but yes I agree that you need a new valve as this is not a sensor issue (assuming you have water getting to the washer of course). Keep in mind this is not a free service nor should you treat it or think of it as such. We spend our time to help you and there is nowhere else you can get someone giving you their time on a Sunday afternoon.
