Re: washer will not operate in cold water
Sounds like the water inlet valve solenoid is burnt out on the cold side, hot side is ok. if you have the machine set for a cold water rinse, and the solenoid is burnt out it is calling for cold water and it will not come into the machine. change the water valve.

Make sure your cold water tape is turned on and the screen in the water valve is not plugged up, it may be trying to fill with cold water and cant get any, try filling the washer with cold water on a "wash" cycle to confirm it it fills with "cold" then just the rince cycle ion the timer may be faulty and would need to be replaced
these noices are often caused by a water issue the rince cycle is a cold water intack so i would surgest turning of the cold water at the mains or shut off valve then disconnect your cold intack hose & check for any clogging it could be a build up of lime scale or lint & the simple removal & cleaning of this hose could fix your problem.. alternativly ensure the cold water supply is turned to the on position to allow the water trough to rince
Could be a faulty inlet valve, or not enough pressure to operate valve,
Remove hose onto valve, and check the water is getting to it o/k,turning off the water to the valve before you undo the hose.
Hope this helps.
sounds like your cold water valve is stuck open .. the valve is located inside the cabinet very close to where the water hoses hook up .. there is a pair .. one for hot and one for cold .. since the rince cycle uses cold then thats the likely culprit ... the valves have two or three wires coming to each .. .. the wires usually just unplug (make sure the washer is unplugged) .. then the valves come out usually with just a couple of bolts .. new valves come as a pair .. so you would be replacing both .. thats also a good time to replace the hoses to your washer ... the safe operating time for hoses is only a few years but most people never change them until they blow ...
Water-inlet valve Water-level switch Water-inlet valve
A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.
A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.
The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.
The water temperature is incorrect
The temperature of the incoming water determines the temperature of the water in your washer. You get either hot, cold, or a mix of the hot and cold water that's currently available to the machine. So if the cold water that enters the machine is very cold--or if the hot water entering the machine is very hot--the warm water is affected.
If you live in a Northern climate, unless you adjust the hot and cold water taps that supply water to your washer, the warm water supplied to your washer is usually hotter during the summer months and colder during the winter months.
It'sthe timer, if your washing machine fills with water and beginsagitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spincycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
Itmay be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills withwater, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinsewater. See There's no cold water.
The model you have this listed under WM2688H (LG Steam Washer) a E1 Code
Correct water level (246) is not reached within 8 minutes
after water is supplied or it does not reach the preset water
level within 25 minutes.
I suggest you
Check the screens in the water inlet valve for blockage
