Just talked to a customer with this washing machine #MVWC500VW and they said that it will squirt a little bit of water in the tub but then stops filling. Are we looking at a pressure switch problem here?

Most likely a water valve that is defective or stopped up with calcium or lime.
Try the hot water and see if it works.
Remove the cold water hose from the machine and clean the filter screen.
If that does not resolve the problem,replace the water fill valve.

If the screen is so clogged it restricts water flow, replace the valve.
