My Repair & Advice
After checking the usual suspects (water pressure, inlet hose screen filters, washer filter, etc) and finding no problems, I tried unplugging the washer overnight, The problem would disappear for months, then reappear. After checking the internet for similar problems, I found a suggestion to replace the inlet flow meter. At less than $50 for the part and considering the cost of having a repairman come out and probably recommending the same thing anyway, I replaced it myself. I found a U-Tube video online showing how to do it (very easy, about 15-20 minutes work) and installed it. It's working fine so far (about 2 weeks), but since it was intermittent before it's too soon to tell for sure.
