Why does my Kenmore washer fill with water, but won't do anything else?

My washer fills, but then it does nothing. It won't wash and it won't spin the water out; all it does is fill. Can someone help please? Thank you.
My washer did this a few months ago. My neighbor came over, tilted the washer over and pushed a reset button underneath the washer and it has worked fine ever since. Good luck!
I have a GE washer. It is less than 2 years old. The spin and agitation cycles just stopped working? Everything else works fine.

Call in someone to fix it. It's usually still cheaper to pay for a repair then it is to buy a new washing machine. (07/12/2010)
My 10 year old machine would not spin. I had my boyfriend look at it, but he couldn't see anything obvious. The next day, I called in an appliance repair man, and he had it fixed within 20 minutes. It is a common thing to happen, and required a small piece. Easy for this guy, but a job of many hours if you don't know what you are doing. Just call a repair man. My bill was about $100.

My washer will not agitate or spin.

May just need a new belt. (06/11/2010)
My washer wouldn't spin, by accident I was able to get it to. I would push on the lid like I was giving it CPR. Sometimes I would chose a different cycle and then push down in the middle of the lid and I could manually get it to spin. Then I realized all I needed to do was tap the lid where the lid met the connection to the washer. It's a pain to have to wait til it washes then change the spin then go back to the rinse cycle and spin again, but it's getting a little life back. I don't know about the agitation unless you try another setting. An appliance guy once told me that so many machines say "large capacity", but people overload the dryers and washers. If you have to buy another one be careful your not overloading the appliances. (06/16/2010)
