Hi, I have a Whirlppol top loader model 11020982992.
When I start a load it keeps filling when it starts to wash
but when I pull the timer out it will stop. Then I push timer back in and the water will stop coming it. It will wash like normal until it goes to rinse, then it will not stop filling again until I pull timer out and back in. Does this sound like a timer problem or a valve problem? Please help
Thank you.

Hummmm, If the fill valve were stuck open the water would not stop flowing with the washer off or unplugged until you turned the water off to the washer.  This sounds like an electrical problem perhaps.  When the washer keeps filling does it agitate or just keeps filling with no agitate.

This would indicate the fill level switch was satisfied, and would leave the problem of the fill valve sticking open or something is shorted in the washer giving voltage to the valve after the water level switch was satisfied.

You'll have to get a meter on the valve wires and see what's going on with the voltage action. Getting voltage to the valve when you shouldn't be

or

not getting voltage to the valve and it's still letting water in.
