 A smart drive will do this if a water valve is faulty or if the out of balance switch is stuck on.  Check the valves buy putting onto hot wash then press start, if the motor starts and stops but no water comes in, try on cold.  If it comes in on cold then the hot valve is faulty and vice versa as long as the water supply is good.  To check the oob switch,reach into the back rh cnr between the bowl and the top,there will be a lever , move it towards the back then the front  a couple of times and you should hear a faint clicking , if not, then the switch could be corroded and jammed and needs to be replaced. :cool:

It could be the lid switch, does the wash light stop blinking when you press start/pause to start the cycle and does the motor turn when it tries to fill?
