I have a Whirlpool washer M# WTW57ESVW0 Unit has Auto Load Sensing Switch instead of the old style pressure switch. When you set the timer to fill with water, unit starts filling and agitating at the same time. I personally think the Auto Load Sensing Switch is bad. Does anyone out there have any input on this problem? How can I get a service manual for this washer?

It is the load sense switch for sure. Change it out and you'll be good to go. Changed 8 or 10 of them for this symptom.

I would just like to add a suggestion. Reseat all the console plugs and try the machine. I had a centennial washer doing the exact same thing, and thought I would try this, because on the cnc machines I used to work on, many times it would work. It did work and the machine is still working beautifully after three months. Something to do with electromagnetic flux I suppose. In and out fast and a very happy customer.
