I had the "agitate before fill" problem, where it seemed to be out of its mind selecting the wrong cycle no matter what the cycle selector was actually set to and would only fill before agitate if I set it on delicate. I replaced the load sensor switch and it now seems to be selecting the correct cycle BUT only fills the tub about halfway before beginning to empty the tub so it's pouring water in while pumping it out at the same time. It seems to be dumping water (and consequently, all of the detergent) faster than it's filling so the tub ends up empty and never begins to agitate before it moves on to rinse and spin cycles.
I found lots of info on the "agitate w/o filling" problem and it seems like everyone with that problem has a bad LS switch. So far, I haven't seen any info in my searching about the new problem - hoping someone here has head of this sort of issue before.
thanks in advance,
