The offending "kusottare" is a Whirlpool washer model LA9500XT that will not fill.

Can the control module be disassembled and repaired? What else am I perhaps overlooking? Should I just take my licks and find another used washer that I have WITNESSED in operation?
Thank you, Sensei, for your website, patience, and wisdom.

Be careful about checking the water level switch. Make sure you're testing for incoming voltage on the common wire. The wires are labelled V, T, and P; V (violet) is the common. It should have 120v whenever the timer knob is puled out.
Usually no, very rarely yes at about 72 volts, but nothing permanent. Regardless of how I fiddle with the cycle knob, I cannot get power regularly to the solenoid. Traced the wiring schematic back to the water level pressure switch - it too wasn't getting power when the knob was pulled "on".

This I have checked. The V violet wire has no voltage when the knob is pulled out. I have checked the control terminal for continuity between the pole for the incoming black power wire, and the pole for the outgoing violet wire to the pressure switch when the when the knob is pulled "on", and I do not get continuity. I think maybe I will take the control unit apart and see if I can figure out why. Maybe(?) I can save buying a new control or washer.
