First I would suggest you remove the hoses from the back of the machine and use a mirror to peer into the connections of the machine to make sure it doesn't have an accumulation of grit blocking either connection.
The connections to which you attach your water lines are extensions of a mixing valve. If you are lucky, this has failed since they are not expensive to buy or difficult to replace with a few common tools.
If you aren't lucky, then the programmer has failed and that is far more costly.
This may not work on your machine but is worth a try:
- Turn off the water supply at the wall. - Turn on your machine to any program segment as if you wished to use the machine - Switch the cold-warm-hot switch back and forth while listening closely near the hose connections.
Some mixing valves will make a little noise when changing over between wash/rinse temperatures. If you can hear distinct clicks from inside the machine, then you may have a failed programmer.

remove the cold water hose from the back of the washer. look inside the area where you unscrewed the hose from. there is a screen in there. if its clogged with sediment remove screen and clean. if that doesnt fix it or if theres no sediment youll have to replace the valve to fix the problem

The most likely cause for water fill temperature problems is the solenoid has burned out, usually cold first, it gets used more. Not a repairable item , easy to replace

SOURCE: Kenmore Washing Machine - no cold water coming in

most likely cuase would be the inlet valve
you would need the complete model number to make sure you get the right part for that unit.

The inlet valve that the hoses attach too the solenoid for the hot side may be stuck closed or clogged with sediment. May need new inlet valve.

No cold water coming into machine


Follow the cold water line inside the washer where it connects to a 'Fill Valve' which is a valve/solenoid. Using an electrical test meter check the two wires at the solenoid for 110 volts when the machine is calling for cold water. If there is voltage but no cold water the valve is most likely bad. You may also want to pull the hose to make sure you have water running through the hose from the spigot. With the hose off at the valve look to see if there is a screen at the valve that might be clogged.

Put the temp select switch on HOT, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. If there is water flow switch to COLD, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount should be approximately equal or slightly more than flow on HOT. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. Move selector to WARM, start machine. Now there should be twice the flow of water than there was with HOT and COLD temps. I suspect it is the HOT side of inlet water valve that has failed because machines usually rinse with COLD water.

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.

Check the cold water solenoid. If a meter is not available you can swap the hot and cold wires and see if the symptom changes to hot water when cold is selected. If so the mixing valve needs replaced. If no then further testing of the wire harness and timer circuit are needed.

Possible Mixing valve Problem


I would pull the lines off the back and check the inlet filter on the hot and cold sides of the water inlet and clean the screen style filter. If you just use cold is the water cold if the cold water valve was bad then you would get no cold wate when set to cold.

What is the F20 error code?


F-20 error code in Whirlpool Duet Sport washing machine is indication of inadequate water supply. Check both hot and cold water supply lines to make sure machine gets enough water intake. If you do not have a hot water supply to the machine you can only run it with the cold temperature setting. This machine does not have an internal water heater and relies on the hot water supply from the house water heater.
