Why won't my Kenmore 800 washer fill up with water?

I have a Kenmore Model 800 washer. It will not fill up with water. It is 2 weeks old and worked fine yesterday. The screen not blocked. It doesn't register that there are clothes in it to start the auto fill (auto sensor?).

The washer should initially fill to a level 8 holes up from the bottom of the basket even if it is empty. If the washer is not filling at all, then you could have a failed load sense control. You could also have a number of other failures that could cause this problem.

With the fill hoses disconnected from the back of the washer, place the ends of the hoses in a bucket and turn on the supply faucets briefly to check for proper pressure and flow from the water fill hoses. If the water supply is okay, then I recommend calling Sears for warranty service at 1-800-4MY-HOME (1-800-469-4663).

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
