Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
What i believe the problem is,is that the solonoid that opens the cold water side of the water inlet valve is very weak and hardly opening the valve on the cold side...and the water inlet valve needs to be replaced.
Firstly though before replacing the valve,turn off the cold water tap,remove the hose from the back of the water inlet valve and check for sediment in the filter screen that is blocking the water from coming into the washer...if you dont see much sediment in the filter screen the water valve will indeed be the problem
The part number for that water valve is 285805 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
This youtube video will show you how to replace that water valve http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fk4puRv3Vk8
