Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
The washer fills fine at first. At the final rinse, just a trickle of water come out.
Take the fill hoses off the machine and clean out the filter inside, right where the hose attached to the machine. Also, check to make sure there are no filter washers in either end of the supply hoses. Sounds like you only have to check the cold water side in this case.

You write that the water flows fine during the wash cycle; if you mean while the machine is washing, then it is the pump making the water flow.
You need to watch the water flow while filling for any cycle since it could be slow filling and not running.
Since the same valve(s) control the water intake during washing and rinsing, what you describe doesn't make sense. I suggest your remove both ends of both hoses and inspect them and the mating connectors on the machine for clogged screens.
If these are clear of any sediment, then the flow control valve is failing. This is located on the rear of the machine and the screw connections for your hoses are part of the valve body. This assembly is pretty easy to remove and replace, is a common and not very expensive failure.
If you are in the US, check to see if you have a Johnstone Supply in your area. They sell mostly wholesale to tradesmen but have never turned a private sale away and are far less expensive than dealers with pricing ranging from 30-50% of dealer price.

The problem is your cold water screen filter is cluged up.
To fix it:
1. Shut off cold water to the washer.
2. Take off cold water fill hose from machine side and faucet side.
3. Inspect the screen filters on the hose and inside water valve.
4. If necessary to clean them remove from hose and valve with pick or small screwdriver.
5. You can clean them with old toothbrush under water stream.

It sounds like you have some buildup in the cold water valve screen. Where the hose connects to the washer there should be a screen inside the valve. Remove the cold water hose from the washer and clear any debri on the valve screen.
If this doesn't fix the slow cold water flow then you will have to replace the whole water valve assembly. The water valve is the piece that the hoses connect too and supply water to the washer.
If you have anymore questions about this please ask. I will be more than happy to help you out.

Sounds like cold water solenoid is not opening all the way, its easy to replace, and is found inside the wash machine where the hose connects

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...
1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
