Here are your parts

This should not be an expensive repair and if the unit is in decent shape I would do it.

I am assuming that the water stops when you unplug it.
If not you probably have a water inlet valve problem.

If yes then you have a water level problem.
The way this works is that the water level switch is actually an air pressure switch. There is a plastic tube that goes from the level switch to the bottom of the tub. As water in the tub rises, it traps air in the tube and this air pressure rises with the water level. When it reaches the switch's set point, it shuts the water valves off and starts agitatation.

Possible problems are:
1. Something clogging up the tube in the tub so water cannot get into it. Just remove the tubing from the switch and blow into it to clear the clog.
2. Holes, cracks or leaks on the tubing allowing the air to escape. Visually check the tubing, replace as necessary. If it looks good and you have enough tubing, you could try cutting 1/2 inch off the tubing (switch end) and re-attaching it.
3. The switch is shot. Get a piece of tubing with the same internal diameter. Attach it onto the level switch, start a fill and then blow into the tubing. You should not have to blow too hard to stop the water flow.

Here is the level switch and tubing
