I have a Whirlpool Topload Washer that won't fill with water (instead it starts agitating at the beginning of cycle).
[/size]The Pressure Tube is clear and [/size]Water Level Switch has power (between P & BR Wire) but no power going to the Temperature Switch or Inlet Valves.
[/size]Therefore, could it be the Timer causing the problem? :-\
[/size]Here's the Wiring Diagram http://www.pwslaundry.com/files/docs/maytag-whirlpool/Service-and-Wiring-8577358-Rev-C.pdf

  Unplug connector from pressure switch. Will it still agitate right away? If yes, bad timer, if not, bad pressure switch.

I believe it is the ATC switch.  Has tract record of failing multiple ways.  Same diagnoses unplug both leads & see if it agitates.

  A faulty ATC switch cannot cause it to agitate without water. ATC has no control over the motor at all on this model.
