SOURCE: no hot water from my washer
The problem is your HOT water solenoid on the water inlet valve. On some washers this is also known as the mixing valve. Since the washer uses hot water for both the hot and warm settings, its logical to assume you have a solenoid that isn't operating. The following link gives you the necessary steps to replace the inlet valve (if necessary):
The first thing you can try is to determine if the valve may be clogged. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, sediment can build up in the filter screens of the valve. You can access by turning off the water supply and removing the hose from the back of the washer. The sediment screens are located in the valve fitting. Sometimes the hoses have restrictor screens in the ends that can also clog or obstruct water. Try cleaning with some distilled vinegar and cotton swabs to dissolve any deposits.
Another source of the problem, could be the electrical connection to the solenoid. With the exterior washer case removed, you can access the electrical connections to the valve and remove them. Clean the contacts if corroded.
If all these preliminary steps do not solve your problem, replace the valve. A replacement can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. Just type in your model number for your search criteria. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop around for the best price.
If you have questions along the way, let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: washer only has cold water.
The Water System temperature sensor is normally what is wrong with these units with this condition that you are experiencing
The water system consists of the hot and cold water inlet valves, a water temperature sensor, a water
flowmeter and control and the dispenser distribution system along with a traditional pressure switch.
Water Inlet Valves -
The hot and cold water inlet valves are located at the back of the washer. These valves receive a control
signal from the Central Control Unit to manage the temperature of incoming water. The temperatures
are determined by the specific wash cycle selected and a temperature sensor located in the wash tub.
To improve cleaning of heavily soiled clothing and to provide a sanitizing feature, the water temperature
can be increased through the use of a heating element located in the bottom of the tub
