SOURCE: Hot water in washer comes
Clean inlet screen where hose attaches to machine. Water from water heater is generally "cleaner" as sediments have had a chance to settle out in the water heater. Cold water carries more stuff directly to the valve screen. Check also for kinked hose.

The problem is with your water valve. It needs to be replaced.
To access the washer follow these steps...
UNPLUG THE WASHER!
1.) Remove the 2 screws from either side of the control panel.
2.) Pull the control toward you a 1/4", then rotate it up and all the way over.
3.) Remove the white plastic wire connector to the top panel (it has 3 wires in it.).
4.) Remove the two clips on either side of the top panel. Do this with a screwdriver. Poke the screwdriver into the top panel to engage the clip, now rotate the screwdriver toward the rear panel.
5.) Lift the lid (for a hand hold) and rotate the entire cabinet forward to about a 45 degree angle then slide it toward you. Set it aside.
Here's a video that shows how it's done. But you'll notice that the screws on your control panel are in the front, the video has the screws in the back, but the rest is the same. Here's the video.
After you have access, you'll see the water valve on the right.
If this was helpful, would you take a moment and rate my solution? Thanks,

Check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.
