Re: the cold water does not run it trickles, hot water...
If both solenoid coils check the same, you probably have a clogged supply hose. Check that the filter screens inside the hose (if present) and the fill valve inlet are clear of mineral buildup. Try switching the hot and cold supply lines to see if the trouble moves from cold to hot. If the cold still only trickles in, replace the fill valve.

Wow! Good job. Most folks don't do that much, or have that much info when they write in. I'm impressed.....really. Thanks. Your issue sounds like either a plugged or defective solenoid, which is a pretty easy fix. 1. Plugged - Where you disconnected the water hose from the washer is the solenoid. You have one for the hot water, and one for the cold. Turn off the water and remove the hose from the solenoid valve, and look for a screen and rubber washer. If you have any plugging in the valve, you'll probably see it there. Pull the washer and screen and clean. You already know about the water that's going to spill when you disconnect the hose..... 2. Defective Solenoid Valve - If the valve is defective, you'll have to replace it. Gain access to the valve, usually by removing the back cover. Make a sketch if necessary where the wires go, what color to what terminal, etc. Take your old part, along with your make and model number of your washer to your local appliance parts supply house. The replacement cost is reasonable.
This should get you back up and running. Best regards, --W/D--
The problem is with the solenoid valve which is located behind the machine and provides the connections to the water supply. One side is labled H for hot and C for cold. If you were to reverse the hoses the result would be an intermittent problem with the hot water supply.
The needle valve somtimes becomes stuck in the open or closed position causing the symptom you are describing.
Replacement of the water fill solenoid valve is recommended.
Hope this helps.
Check 1st if water is flowing well from the hose. hold it over the sink or bucket/if not could be faulty water valve..Put valves back to original as hot may have a reducer to cut down pressure hence the pulsing that you say...
I'm not a repairman, only a "doityourselfer". Try some or all of the following:
1. Check water valve to see if it full open. 2. Check the hot water hose inlet on the back of the machine. Look for a strainer that may be clogged in the hose inlet (turn water valve off first). 3. Check hose for kinking. 4. With the hose disconnected from the washing machine, try running some hot water through the hose into a bucket just to verify the water is available. 5. With machine set to hot water wash, start a cycle and listen for the hot water solenoid to "click" when the machine is started (some solenoids are louder than others so listen carefully). If water begins to trickle in when you here the click then the solenoid is probably working properly.
where your water lines connect there is a sc reen inside and if it is clogged with rust lime and or mineral deposit. it needs cleaned out. you can pull it out with a ice pick or something pointy. Check your screen first and if that doesn't fix ya then yes replace the unit.
turn off water valves at wall, disconnect the supply hoses from the washer. where the hoses connect to the washer, there is usually a stainless steel screen/strainer inline on both the hot and cold inlet. corrosion on the cold side is pretty common. Menards, Lowes Home Depot stores sell the replacment screeens.
its in your cold water line valve to the washer if it works good with hot water the valve are incoming line being blocked when you turn it on the pressure comes in fast then when pressure is gone water slows down so when its off the pressure builds back up it runs fast then slow
