Water is on and runs but it seems the drain is stuck open or something, runs but never fills.

your washer is siphoning .. your drain hose is too far down the stand pipe... pull it out and only let it go down 6 to 8 inches and use a zip tie too around the fill hoses too keep it in....
Check the Basics first!!! Read the Manual !!!Buy the tech a Beer!!!
