In our case, the hot water inlet valve was obviously broken. We picked up the washer on the side of the road in our neighborhood. We checked it out in our driveway - hooking it up to the water hose. When we connected to the hot side, water came gushing out the valve, inside the washer. A quick look confirmed it was obvioulsy broken. We connected the cold side and it started to fill the tub. Other checks confirmed the washer timer and other controls worked OK. we ordered the valve part from PartSelect (about $60 total). Took all of about 30 minutes to pull the old valave out and install the new one. Cleaned up the washer (it really needed it BADLY), and the washer is working perfectly now.
