There is a mixing valve normally located (and part of) the threaded connection for the hoses on the back of the machine.
These are junk when new and fail often.
The water heater replacement may have resulted in some ‘stuff’ getting into the lines and interfering with the mixer operation.

If one source is working and the other isn't, you may have screens at both ends of the water hoses and one end is clogged.

Removing the back panel is pretty easy and the valve is normally not tough to reach and often held in place by 1 or 2 screws only, with 1/4" or 3/8" heads.

If you have a Johnstone Supply in your area, the part will cost about half as much as from GE or Sears.

Cold water will only trickle into washing machine


Check your water pressure if thats good check the screens on your hoses, if thst good go to the water inlet valves that allow water into your tub

Cold water will not stop filling during rinse


while the unit is filling in the warm cycle. reach behind and shut off the hot water tap.I bet the water flow stops filling, if so, you would need to change the inlet valve on the machine. You see, in warm, if the cold is not filling, you still hear the hot filling and the unit will advance. The rinse cycles are mostly "cold" only. if the valve is not opening it will not allow it to advance from the rinse section on the board.

Good luck!

Water temperature


It sounds like your water inlet valve (also known as a Mixing Valve on some washers) HOT solenoid is sticking open. When you select either a hot or cold wash cycle, separate solenoids open or close to allow only cold water to enter the washer on the cold wash cycles and hot water to enter on the hot cycles. If the hot solenoid stays open, you will have hot water mixing with your cold water during the cold cycles. The result is warm water. I would recommend you replace the water inlet valve. This is a job the average DIYer can do. Please post back with your model number and I can assist you with locating a part number and/or give you specifics on how to access the valve to replace it.

Cold water problem


more than likely that your inlet valve is faulty it needs replacing thats the more common fault for water not going into the machine
