Hello,
So last night washer wouldn't fill tub. Tested inlet valve with direct current, both hot and cold work fine. Tested for 120V at the inlet valve in fill position, no current. Tested pressure switch by blowing down hose into tube, clear. Blew into pressure switch with knob in fill position and pulled out, pressure switch clicks and washer starts to agitate. When dial is moved to spin cycle, starts and works fine. So I think its the timer switch panel??? Can you help me to test for proper voltage, at both the timer switch and the hot and cold switches?? Here's a pic of my open control panel. I also have the electronics schematic if needed. Thanks very much!

Was reading other posts about blown fuses, and sure enough. Mine was a blown fuse. Replaced and all works well again. Thanks a bunch! I really appreciate this forum!

When the fuse blows, you have the replace the entire lid switch assembly, or the fuse will keep blowing.:)

Here's the lid switch assembly for your model you can order:
WP22001682 Lid Switch Assembly


It comes together in one piece with a new fuse too, there is a video in the part link that shows you how to install it.
