not filling – usually due to a failed inlet valve that has seized shut, but can also be caused by a number of other faults – constantly filling – most likely due to a inlet valve that has seized open, you must switch the water supply of otherwise your kitchen will flood.
not spinning – often caused by a fault with the motor from being burnt out to possibly needing new carbon brushes if the pcb timer module (washing machine brain) was to fail it could cause any number of random faults with the machine including the any of the list above so it is vital you get a qualified and insured engineer out who offers a guarantee on any work undertaken just like if you called out a Imperial Appliances engineer.
