This washer will not start. It will not fill with water. When I turn the dial with the bottom pulled out, in any of the cycles, the only thing that seems to work is the spin cycle. However, no water comes out. I am not sure if I have a bad dial or maybe a bad water valve. Ideas?

check the Fuse in the Lid Switch assembly

A bad Fuse indicates a failed Lid Switch.

 

Washer lid switch assembly complete with fuse

*Open fuse indicates bad lid switch assembly.

The manufacturer has replaced part number 207176 with this item,

part number 22001682

  If it runs in spin with lid open, the lid switch has definitely failed and is designed to blow the fuse so that the washer cannot fill and thus is basically inoperable until you fix the switch. Even if it won't spin with lid open, the switch contacts could be sticking and still cause the fuse to blow.

yes, also if the timing of the Lid Switches was ever "sticky" or delayed,

such that either Switch did not "trigger" at the correct sequence,

then, for safety reasons, it's designed to blow the Fuse to indicate a Lid Switch failure.

Thanks for the info. I did check and the spin will not work with the lid open. I will still change the switch and let you know what happens.
