I only get cold water - and precious little of that
When I start the machine, water barely comes out. Gets a little faster as cycle continues, but it takes a good hour or more sometimes to run through a cycle. And it's LOUD when the water is running into the machine.

My next step would be to open the unit up and be able to observe (safely) the timer/switch. There is a motor turning a cog wheel, that pushes and releases the electrical switches.
You want to witness the turn rate of this drum, or be able to see the motor output gears......then run the machine to the problem position and observe....
If the motor is NOT runing and the cog wheel is NOT turning, something is interrupting, perhaps a safety switch like the lid switch....
If the motor is running and the cog wheel is turning, you need more patience... Some designs reverse the motor and there is quite a number of degrees of that cog wheel that in needs to trun through, or they run the risk of damaging the motor, so a pause cycle...
Be sure that BOTH hot and cold water hoses are hooked up, on and flowing. Some machines stop waiting for cold water.
(This happens when hoses are reversed going into the machine, Dad gets large hot water bill, has fit, goes and turns off the hot water (which was hooked up to the cold water tap...) and a machine will need filling and wait forever with no water flowing into machine. Often you get a buzz of the water valve, while the machine waits.)
This could be a timer issue or a cold water supply issue, since cold water is what's used in the rinse cycle. You didn't say if the machine attempts to fill when it gets to the rinse cycle or not, but first check the water inlet valve (especially the cold water side). Remove the water supply hoses and check the small metal screens inside the openings on the valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
Check for a cold water supply problem by taking a look at the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small metal screens inside the openings on the valve (especially the cold water side). Make sure they are free of rust or debris. Check the solenoids. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need replaced.

It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap to break up efficiently.
During the cold months the water in your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of 78F for cold water cycles.
It sounds like you have some buildup in the cold water valve screen. Where the hose connects to the washer there should be a screen inside the valve. Remove the cold water hose from the washer and clear any debri on the valve screen.
If this doesn't fix the slow cold water flow then you will have to replace the whole water valve assembly. The water valve is the piece that the hoses connect too and supply water to the washer.
If you have anymore questions about this please ask. I will be more than happy to help you out.
This is either a bad timer or a bad heat sensor. On most cycles that call for the water to be heated it will pause the timer and continue washing/heating until the sensor is satisfied the water is hot enough. Try selecting a quick, delicate, or china cycle without heated rinse or dry. If it works this way the timer is fine but the sensor is bad. Sometimes cold water to the machine will cause this problem because the machine is not capable of totallly heating cold water. It is only designed to boost the temp. Make sure you run hot water at the sink before you start the machine.
Yes remove the hose from where it connects to washer look inside water valve and remove plastic screen with needle nose pliers Without damaging it. Also make sure that it gets back in proper as the valve will be damaged without it.
