Littleone.. please check your instructions.. some washers now dont need Hot water connection to them...they heat their own as part of the efficiency settings on the wash programmes themselves!

It is very possible for it to be a valve failur as these machines have a temperature control incommon, It recieves voltatge through the temp control.

I have exactly the same problem. I am currently getting around the issue by letting the machine do the washing then at the end of that cycle do a manual rinse cycle.

almost certainly the result of the fill sensor failing. intermittantly
Essentially, the sensor is a bellows device. A pipe is connected to the device and as water reaches the end of the pipe and advances up it, the air pressure in the pipe increases, inflating the bellows. As the bellows inflate, they press on and trip a microswitch inside the sensor and cut the power to the water inlet valve, stopping the water flowing into the machine when it reaches the correct, measured level according to the pressure in the pipe.
Take the top off the machine, if you look down the side you will see a (typically clear plastic) tube about the thickness of a pencil, connected to a circular device about the circumference of a coffee cup and about an inch to two inches thick.
This is the sensor. Problems with it may be:
It has come unclipped from where it should be mounted. The device is VERY sensitive and if it has slipped out of place, over or underfilling is common. (Reposition the sensor, hopefully you can see where it came from!)
The pipe that is connected to it has come off, so the air pressure that the sensor measures is not increasing as the machine fills (push the pile back on and all is well)
The machine has been subject to some trauma (Such as a very uneven load that has made it shake violently. The starting level of the water that is in the bottom of the pipe is now wrong and the pressure sensor is being affected. (Remove the pipe from the sensor, blow down the pile to get any water that should not be there out and then replace the pipe).

Check the inlet valve solenoid wires for resistance with an ohms meter. The cold and hot solenoids should have close to the same resistance. My washer had a weak solenoid causing the hot water valve to close after 4 or 5 seconds. While checking the solenoid wires for resistance with the ohms meter, I noticed the cold side had 51 ohms but the hot side only 8 ohms. Hope this helps.
