Question about Washing Machines
Sounds like the hoses are hooked up opposite. Swap the hose connections on the washer.

washing machines allow cold water to enter only during certain cycles.
Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the
temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure
about whether the machine is acting abnormally.
If you're sure the machine is not working the way it used to--or should--check the following.
Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

CHeck to see if the screens in the water valve are plugged. If not the hot water side of the valve went out. Replace the water valve and it will fix both the hot and cold problem.

This sounds like a cold water supply problem that's usually caused by a problem at the water inlet valve. First, remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are not clogged with rust or debris. Next, check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helps and best wishes.

If you turn off the hot water line, and you have cold water then suspect the water inlet valve. Unplug the unit and turn off the water to disconnect the water hoses. Pull out the washer and remove the back of the unit by the water hose inlet. The new valve is around $65.00 and is on connectors, which make it an easy fix.
