Sounds like the inlet valve is bad. if you have a volt meter it is simple to check. first thing to do is remove the screw in each endcap on the conrtol panel. then pull to you and lift up and let it hang to the back of the washer. you will see a connector for the lid switch on top of the washer. disconect it. on each side on the top there is a clip that holds the cabinet to the back of the washer. use a flat blade screw driver and remove the clips. now grab the cabinet and tilt up and move it to you. now on the right you will see the water valve. it will have 2 connectors on it. one clear one red. clear is the cold water valve.use the ohm meter to check the valve.make sure you have 120v to it and if you do disconect the wirs and ohm the solinoid out. should be between 450 -650 if you get no reading replace the valve.

Hello Stephanie Wells,

Since it is the "new place" that changed...

I would FIRST look to the COLD WATER supply
to make sure cold water INDEED comes out of the
MACHINE END of the hose.

Then move on to the cold water valve...

>> Take PICTURES before disassembly.

Not terribly expensive... Pretty easy to change.
(you may get your NEW PART as differently
connected than your old (PRESS FIT couplings
are replacing the OLD threaded type...
ALERT: PRESS collar in to release tubing)

Check these (USA) parts suppliers to
find your specific water valve
(even available through AMAZON)...

Hot water fills with hot and cold not strictly hot what is the fix


see the causes: and proceed with common sense. God bless you
Some washing machines allow hot 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 isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests: Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on. Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct. Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

Rinse cycle does no work


Be certain that water is on and flowing to BOTH inlet valves. A common problem is the hoses get hooked up backwards, DAD gets a big hot water bill, turns off the hot water (which is connected to the cold water inlet) and the rinse is cold water, so no water, so the machine just stops and waits, forever.... You can often hear a buzzing of the water valve....

My washing machine is a Roper top load washer. The problem I am having is that the pump from the cold water drain from under the washing machine. Do I need another pump? The hot water will work. I use the...


This model is a direct drive with only one pump, the drain pump. If the drain pump leaks, which is a common problem on these models, it will leak no matter what temperature wash is selected! If you a have a leak on cold, it will probably also leak on warm wash. Your problem is your solenoid operated fill valve on the cold side. Only one fill hose comes off of this combination fill valve to your fill plenum at the top back of your tub. So if it leaks on the cold, but not hot, check for a crack in the plastic housing of the valve on the cold half. The valve is located on the inside back of the machine on top right when looking at the front of the machine. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace.

Hope this helps

My washer works wonderful buy cold water settings do not work even rinse doesn't work hot water works fine


Would say that the cold fill valve is shot

The machine cannot fill with cold water which it uses for setting the temperature on the 60 degree wash.

The cold valve is also used for rinses

Hot water only will give you a wash which is too hot and will cause the colours to run

Can take the pipe off the back of the machine to see if the cold water inlet filter is blocked

Make sure that you turn the fawcet off and also that you have a cloth handy in case there is still some pressure on the hose.

If the filter is blocked take it out and clean it , it just pulls out but be gentle with it it is only plastic.

If the filter is clean you need a new valve

Washer only washes on hot


Some 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.

  • Is the cold water turned on? If not, turn it on.


  • Is the washer getting hot water but no cold water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.


  • Is there cold water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you need to replace the valve.
