This Frigidaire FWS235RFS2 washer will not fill with water but still agitates. Not sure if timer inlet valve or water level switch??? Thanks Riley

It should not agitate first. It should fill first. sounds like a faulty water pressure switch

If you have a meter check to make sure there is power going to your water valve when you start the unit..Does it start to agitate as soon as you turn it on?

Pinched or clogged pressure switch hose or bad pressure switch.
