Default Washer will run with no water in it

Hello, my washer does not fill up with water. Normally the wash cycle will need to fill the tub to the selected water level before it will begin the wash cycle. Now it will begin agitating as soon as you turn on the wash cycle, like there is water in it. Water connections are good, no kinks/clogs, good water pressure from spigot. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Tony

Sounds like a water level switch problem.Item 15 in Section 10.
Could be that the switch contacts are welded shut so the unit thinks that it is full and therfore never fills.

The way it works is:
This switch is actually a pressure switch. It has a tube that runs down to the bottom of the tub, as water fills the tub, air is trapped in the tube. As the water rises, the air pressure in the tube increases until it reaches the switch's set point then the switch activates turning off the water and starting the agitate.
