I replaced the water level pressure switch on my GE top loading washing machine (whdsr209daww) - but I didn't fix the problem. What now?

Initial problem: washer went through a wash cycle, rinse cycle, got to spin cycle and wouldn't spin. When I said oh, okay, I'll just wash the clothes again, I found that the washer wouldn't send any water in. Timer advanced normally, I heard a pump sound like it was trying to get rid of water even though none was there.
I replaced the water level pressure switch and tried the washer. It filled with water, and as it was filling and not stopping I said oh no, forgot to reconnect a little plastic tube to the pressure switch. So I did that and just spun the load dry.
Put in a new load - second load post repair - and the same issue as the original issue. Won't spin, won't fill with water again.
Do I keep trying to fix this? The switch was $65 total, the valve I think I might need to replace is another $50 or so - I am just frustrated and want to fix this!
If you've got an idea, or you're pretty sure I need to replace the valve, I'd love to hear it!
