It sounds like your cold water celenoid is going out. You have to replace the whole water valve. it should be around 30 bucks. your local parts store should have it in stock, Just take your model # with you.

Sounds like the valve isn't working properly.
One way to test is to turn off the water supplies and at the back of the machine switch the hoses.

Hi

I believe the issue is with the water inlet valve assembly going bad and should be replaced, this unit has two valve one for cold and another for hot. You can test the valve first if that is fine then check the pressure switch which is part#4 in this diagram. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

No hot water going in


your water inlet valve is probably bad or stopped up with debris. some valves have screens that can be cleaned. you can swap the cold line and the hot line and check it that way. (you should get hot water when set on cold this way and cold for hot) be sure to turn the water off before swapping the hoses or you may get a little wet.

if the valve needs replacing you will need to remove the cabinet from the machine.

Check hose error on electrolux wave touch washing machine


I'm sure nojallo1 has already fixed his but I just ran into the same problem and didn't find anything in my searches for a solution. The problem I had was the test cycle wasn't long enough to get hot water through my water lines so it could verify the hot and cold hoses were in the proper places. Solution: Turn the hot water on in all the sinks in your house until they have hot water running through them. This will prime your hot water line so it is full of hot water instead of cold water. Then run the install cycle again and it should be fine.
