Hello ffregia
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, The cold water comes into the washer at a trickle. The hot water comes in a full stream. The valves/faucets are open all the way. What can be the problem??

The fact that the water is trickling in, means the screen that filters the incoming water is cloged.
turn of the cold water valve and unscrew the cold water hose to the washer. In either side of that hose there may be a small screen to remove and clean.
And at the point that the hose screws on to the washer there is almost always a screen to be cleaned.
There we go!
Screen cleaned and puzzle solved!
Thank You for allowing me to advice you!
Bless You! ..Huuum
Please remember to leave me a solved rating before you go!

The screen at the cold water inlet is clogged. Cut off the cold water line and unscrew the line to the washer at the washer. Use a flathead screwdriver and pry out the metal screen that is visible Wash it out in a sink and re-install it. Re-attach the water line,turn it on and your'e good to go. If not you will need a new water inlet valve. These are the only things that can cause your problem unless there is a problem with your cold water supply pressure. Good Luck!!!!!

Cold water comes out as a trickle, hot water comes out fine. how do I get the cold water to come out faster?


It sounds like you may have a clogged screen in your water valve. Turn the water off going to the washer and remove one hose at a time from the back of the washer and look inside the body of the water valve, you should see a small metal screen inside the valve, and they should be clear of any debris. If you see any debris built up on the screen, carefully remove the screen, I usually use a small flat blade screwdriver, and then use a small brush, like an old toothbrush, and scrub it under a stream of water in your sink until it is clear of any debris. Carefully put the screen back in and put your hose back on and then turn your water back on and you should be good to go. If you do not have any debris on the screens, then you could have a bad water valve and that would need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

On demand, the cold water comes only trickling in. Hot is just fine.


If you turn off the water supply and switch the hot and cold hoses see if the problem the cold cycle is only trickling hot water. If the problem switches order a water inlet valve which is about $20.00. To replace the valve turn off the water and unplug the unit. Pull the unit out and remove the back panel. Disconnect the hoses from the valve and unplug the connecter. Replace the valve and plug in the connector reconnection all the hoses. Test the unit before closing it up.

The cold water trickles. There is a "good" flow of water (hot&cold) to the machine yet, the cold water trickles out on any cold setting. The hot water has great flow. What could be the answer?


Sounds to me like your inlet valve is gunked up. You will need to replace your inlet valve. I would also check your hoses first to make sure the cold water hose does not have a screen on it that is full of calcium deposits. Hope this helps _MJ_

Cold water trickles into the tub while it is being filled up


The hot and cold water supply hoses that connect the washer from the water supply faucets on the wall to the water connections on the back of the clothes washer usually have filter / sediment screens within there connection fittings at the end of the hoses, these will collect dirt,sand, calcium deposits, etc.,when they trap enough of these materials they will plug up and restrict the flow of water into the clothes washer. Turn off the water faucets at the wall, and you should do this for both hot and cold hoses, disconnect the hoses from the washer and the water faucets, look into the hose ends and pull out the screens and clean them out by running water and what ever you can use to clean them completely!!!!!
Now look inside the water connections on the back of the clothes washer,where you screw the hoses on the washer, and check to see if there are filter screens in there, if there is, remove them and clean out completely also, then reverse the removal process and reconnect the hoses, makeing sure to connect the hot and cold hoses to the right connection on the back of the clothes washer!!
Try filling the washer with water to see if you have corrected the problem.
Make sure hot and cold hoses are correct on the back of the washer!!!!
GOOD LUCK !!!!!!

Washer wont allow cold water


Mixing valve should lock out the hot water when on the cold water setting. Either your hoses are crossed, or the mixing valve is flipped. To see if one of these is true, try it on a hot water setting to see if cold water comes in, or try just swapping the water hoses.

Hot Water runs in fine but the cold only trickles into Washer,


There are 2 hoses. Hot and cold and if the nobs are not turned wide open then it will not give you the water like you want. Check to make sure that the hot water nob is turned to were the water should come out like the cold. If not that then check the water heater and see if it is set up the way it needs to be.
