I thought maybe the inlet solenoid or valve was stuck, so I put a multimeter on it and it is definitely being told to keep the valve open for that long, it goes high and water starts flowing, and stay high, then as soon as it goes low the valve closes. The air pressure changes in relation to the depth of the water, moving a diaphragm in the switch.
It works fine except in drying mode, instead of squirting a little water in, it runs the input tap for far longer than it used to.

Remove the bolts holding the motor windings. A fan circulates air through the warming duct, drum, and condenser and over and over. The air is warmed because warmer air holds more moisture than cooler air and the heat causes more of the water to be evaporated form the laundry.

To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not install the washer in humid spaces. Do I need to take it apart and snap it in again? The warm, moist air is directed through the condensing duct, which is cooled by a spray of cold water. After three months of incorrect type of detergent or incorrect amount of the correct detergent used--musty odor begins to occur. Main Wash Detergent Compartment 3.

A Hall Effect sensor is used in these washers which monitors the speed and direction of the motor and then forwards this information to the control board. If you know your date of purchase, this is most likely still under the 7 or 10 year warranty. Conclusion is you'll have to check both motor and hall sensor and replace the part that is bad, usually I have seen the sensor going bad.
