It buzzes because 120 volt AC is within the hearing range and means electricity is trying to open the solenoid plunger.Make sure the faucet the hose is connected to is turned on. swap hot and cold hoses and see if the Hot water is now a trickle. The solenoid asm that the hoses connect to can be removed and dissambled. It's a no brainer. the parts are mirrors of each otherBe sure to unplug the washer first. Remove the hoses at the solenoid assembely the valve asm has wires coming to it that just push on. A loose connector MIGHT cause this problem. Draw a picture of the wire connections, noting the color of each connection.Now the fill solenoid asm can be removed. It's probably held to the cabinet with one screw. now there are some screws holding the coils to the plungers. disassemble the valve and clean it up. Don't lose the springs that push the plunger to the closed position. At this point you could even swap the plungers on the asm. Just clean the obvious lime and **** upp using a tooth brush and water.DON'T LOSE THE SPRINGS,DON'T EVEN WASH THEM. Assembly is just reversed.you should not have to buy any parts, but don't lose the springs.
You have a bad fill (mix) solenoid valve. The valve in the solenoid is hanging up and by switching it back and fourth between hot and cold its just working its way to the proper position..You were on the right track.....
does it ever give an error code? a common problem on whirlpool made machines is the dispenser arm getting caught when changing positions. This part is in rear of detergent dispenser housing and uses a motor and a arm to select detergent/ softner/ bleach/ and fill. you can remove top (screws on back) to watch this.
The cold water inlet line is either clogged (it has a filter screen in it) or the cold-water solenoid valve is malfunctioning.
Remove cold water line, check for obstruction -- if no success, inspect electrical connections on solenoid valve (where the cold water line attaches to the back of the machine). If valve is getting current, take it apart and clean it. If that doesn't work, replace the solenoid valve.
take the hose off the cold water valve and check the screen on the water valve ,make sure the cold water is on all the way and the hoses are on the right valves get a water bucket hold the cold water line in it open the cold water valve to check the pressure
There is a solenoid control valve on all washing machines, located where the water hoses enter the machine. If you have a rubber mallet, you can whack the machine gently with the mallet. If the problem is resolved, it was just a stuck valve. If not, then you likely will need to replace the whole solenoid valve control. Typically there are controls for each water supply.
