Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

This particular model washer has a common problem which you are experiencing. The problem is that the washer is waiting to fill up with water before it starts washing but it won't fill. This is caused by the pressure switch inside the control panel failing. Below is a link to the pressure switch which is the only switch inside the control panel with a small rubber hose connected to it. You will need to order and replace this part to resolve the issue.
