The W10177795 Load Sensing switch is the most likely cause of your problem but there are some things to consider.

While the load sensing/Fabric softener switch is likely the cause of the not enough water problem it wouldn't have anything to do with the not draining problem.

If yo select fabric softener then you should get more water in the tub.

This can be a tricky problem to diagnose. The washer is designed to use as little water as possible. It does start to agitate before the water is added. It is sensing the weight of the clothes to determine how much water to add.

This is the way of the future and most everyone thinks there is not enough water.

That said if there is a problem with not enough water the Load Sensing/Fabric Softener switch has been the guilty part.

Try a load with fabric softener selected and confirm you get a tub full of water.

If the unit is still under warranty then I suggest you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

The switch is available from the following link: Sensing Switch .

You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

An excerpt from another Expert follows..... (I have a question afterwards) "I am sorry you are having a problem with your washer. Usually when this happens, it is because of the load sense switch. The relay in the switch sticks and allows the washer to fill and agitate at the same time. A simple check is to access the load sense switch and unplugging the wires to it. Then check the operation. I have provided you with the instructions for accessing the load sense switch below. Make sure you unplug the washer first. Once the console is open the load sense switch it the switch that has the clear plastic hose connected to it. Remove the connector that has the violet, white and the blue with orange stripe from the switch. Then carefully plug the washer back in and start a wash cycle. If the washer does not do anything, you have to replace the load sense switch. If the washer still agitates, the problem is most likely a failed timer. " My Load Sense Switch has no connector with 3 wires (white, violet, & blue w/orange stripe). Mine has 2 connectors, one with 7 wires and one with 2 wires (violet & blue w/orange stripe, NO white wire. I (sort of) followed the instructions & my washer did nothing with the 2-wire connector unplugged. I plugged it back and now the washer seems to work ok. I guess my question is... does my 2-wire connector "equal" the Expert's 3-wire connector.... and by removing that connector can the Load Sense Switch "reset"?

This problem has reared its ugly head again. It has happened a couple of times since my last post but I was able to "fix it" by unplugging (and "re-plugging") the auto-sense switch (therefore resetting it?) a couple of times. When plugging it back in, there was usually a tiny spark.... it no longer sparks. AND now, it does not fill with any water & does not agitate. If I turn the control knob, I can find spots where the pump runs and it spins. Have I killed something else in the washer.... or have or did I just completely kill an already ailing auto-sense switch. (the connector I was unplugging was the 2-wire connector)
