If you're getting a dribble you'd need to test power at your electronic water valve on the back of the washer to see if you're getting 110 volts to one of the solenoids. If you're only getting 50 volts or something like that, then you'd need to replace the timer control. If you're getting 110 volts then you have a bad solenoid on your valve (there are multiple solenoids for different functions like hot water, cold water, rinse, etc...) so the entire valve assembly would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say.
