If the door lock is engaging, then there could be a few things causing the problem. These things are as follows:
1) The water valve is bad - you can check this by seeing if when you turn the machine on if power, 115vac is being applied to it. If so the valve is bad, if not read forward.
2) There is a part called the pressure switch, it controls the amount of water that flows into the machine. Its connected to the drum by a 1/4" tubing. You'll need to check to make sure that nothing is obstructing the tube.
3) Take the bottom of the machine off, called the kick plate. Inside there is a tech sheet with diagnostic walk through's that will carry you the rest of the way
