    Cold water isn't coming on, only hot?

    Not sure what ur saying have u tried changing the hot cold hoses and see what happens? u may have a bad water inlet valve or a bad water temperature switch? first make sure ur getting hot from the house outlet, u can check with a multi meter for continuity to see if either is out

    Cold water comes in a trickle. Hot water fills as normal.

    Shut off the cold water valve and check the hose connections.
    Some units have a small mesh screen. Supposed to be on the shut off valve side.
    This is there to block sediment and scale from reaching your clothes or internal washer workings.
    Check for blockage, clean and put back in service.

    Easy to check and if blockage is found... service can be restored in minutes.
    Hope this helps!

    The cold water takes almost an hour to fill the machine. The hot water fills just fine.

    shut off water and check screen filters on each end of the hose.
    solenoid may be damaged

    No hot water going in

    your water inlet valve is probably bad or stopped up with debris. some valves have screens that can be cleaned. you can swap the cold line and the hot line and check it that way. (you should get hot water when set on cold this way and cold for hot) be sure to turn the water off before swapping the hoses or you may get a little wet.

    if the valve needs replacing you will need to remove the cabinet from the machine.

    Caddillac Deville keep running hot water keep coming back through the overflow tank

    The thermostat could be bad. Run the engine cold with the cap off the bottle. If it comes out while the engine is still cold, you have a bad headgasket. Otherwise, start by replacing the thermostat.

    Model 70 clothes washer, cold water comes in extremely slowly, I need a diagram to show me where/how to clean the entry filter, please. I don't have a manuel for this old but very good machine. Thanks

    Shut off cold water supply to machine.On the back of your machine where the cold water inlet line connects the machine. Remove the cold water hose (I recomend doing both hot and cold to ensure the the hot is clear while you are there). look inside the threaded hose connection on the machine water inlets on the back where you removed the hose(s). There are small screnes inside the fitting and can be removed with a small screwdriver. Simply rinse them out and reinstall them. Some hoses have a screne in the ends. I recomend removing your drain hose (the discharge) from the sewer and open the water fauscett and flush the homes lines and inlet hoses into the drain pipe (no mess or water on the floor). This also insures good water flow to your machine. reinstall hoses... Should fixya!

    Water is not filling up.

    turn off water
    disconnect fill hose from tap
    examine screen inside hose end for 'muck' blockage
    clean screen
    reconnect hose
    test washer
    if no fill
    replace water solenoid valve

    note: cold water valve fails first, it gets most use,
    if only using cold water, you can simply swap the hot and cold hoses at the tap, and swap the hot and cold electrical connectors on the solenoid valves, the hot solenoid is no the cold one and the washer can be used, cold only, for about as long as it has operated thus far..

    turn tap on---- sorry I thought it Funny

    water flow is controlled by solenoid valves attached to inside rear wall of washer.
    usually cold water fails first by the most use.
    they are simple to replace, can be ordered from local store by model number or by pulling the old one off and taking it in, everybody has them, mnaytag fitsd kenmore fits whirlpool fits just about all.

    If only the cold water solenoid has failed, to get the washer going, for use (the result will be cold water wash only)

    open the rear panel
    locate the 2 solenoid valves, trace the water lines in to the first !+~3inch diameter electrical gadgets, those gadgets are the solenoids.
    swap the power cables between the solenoids
    put the back -back on
    swap the hose connections on the taps
    now the burned out solenoid is in the hot water line, and cold water is available for wash and rinse.
    If you buy a replacement solenoid then swap cables and hose back. but second solenoid will proobably last as long as first did as long as you dont mind cold water only
