Question about Washing Machines
When its supposed to be filling it hums for a few minutes. It seems that after some time, the hot water is coming in to start the cycle but when its time for rinse it just hums and cold water never comes in. I have checked the water flow to the washer and the screens at the inlets which are both clean. I have tried to put the machine in test mode but have not been able to. Its is a bad water supply valve?

well the first thing i would do is take the cold line loose from the washer get a large bucket and open the cold line with the hose off and see what kind of pressure there is if very little need a plumber or in crese your well pump pressure check your screen while you have the hose off if all of this is ok id replace the washer water valves

shut off the water valve,disconnect the hot water hose from the back of the washer,then turn on the water valve to make sure it's not the house water valve first before you start messing with the washer,if the hot water is working correctly then you could have a bad water valve on the washer.let me know what you find

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.

typically hot is on the left and cold is on the right at the house faucets but in some cases they are reversed so if filling with a cold setting and the right side supply is hot the plumber reversed the lines when the house was built which while its semi rare has been seen numberous times
