Yes patrick you can try removing the cold hose from the washer, look inside the valve for a metal screen. If it has sediment blocking it remove screen, clean it and reinstall. If still no water replace inlet valve.

SOURCE: Hot water fill problem
Replace or clean your water inlet valve. It appears that the hot water solenoid has either become clogged, or had failed. You can find a replacement at repairclinic.com. Type in your COMPLETE model number in the Search window and there will be two of them located under the "Water Valve/Float" heading. Depending on WHICH type of valve you have, a replacement costs between $28 and $74. Refer to the part illustrations to make sure you are ordering the correct part. If you require assistance in accessing the inlet valve, let me know. I hope this helps you.
PS If you attempt to clean the valve, you will need to turn off the water supply and disconnect the hoses. Check the inlet screens for sediment or debris.

No it is probably the screen that is either in the end of the hose that attaches to the machine, and/or the screen is placed so that the cone is toward the machine instead of pointing away from the machine.
If the cone is pointing towards the machine any debris in the lines would collect and eventually fill the screen cone and slow or shut off water flow.

Q - My washer will not fill with cold water
A - More often than not, this is a bad fill valve. Please see the filling section.
There's no cold water Some washing machines allow cold water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.
If you're sure the machine is not working the way it used to--or should--check the following.
