Re: very slow cold water flow
Soundslike either your cold water supply is not turned on all the way or the inlet valve is clogged w/debris. try removing cold water hose and checkin inside the valve, sometimed youll be able to remove sediment adn debris from valve from screen, if thats not the case youll need to replace the vavle itself

This should run two showers at once with no problem. If you have a shut off valve on the cold side of the heater, try closing about halfway. This will slow the water flow and the water will have more time to heat up as it pases through the tank. If you dont have a shut off valve, just cut back the hot water valve on your shower and do not use any cold water. If it gets too hot then turn on a little cold water. The object is to slow the speed of the water going through the tank. Tankless heater take a little getting use to but they work great when you know how to treat them. On my shower I turn the hot all the way on until it gets hot and then add a little cold water to bring the temp down. You may have too much water going through too fast to be able to heat it up to what you need. Try this and see how it works.
Might be a bad inlet valve. To confirm, swap the hot and cold hoses to your washer so that the cold water feeds the hot water connection and the hot water feeds the cold water connection. Turn off both hot and cold water faucets. Set the washer for a warm water wash. Turn on the cold water faucet, and check the flow. Then turn off the cold water faucet, and turn on the hot water faucet and check the flow. If the cold water flow fill slowly, then the problem is with the inlet valve.
It an easy part to obtain from an appliance supply house. To install disconnect the hoses to the back of the machine, and remove the back panel to get access to the valve. Should only take a couple of minutes to remove and install. Hope this helps you.
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.....
Check 1st if water is flowing well from the hose. hold it over the sink or bucket/if not could be faulty water valve..Put valves back to original as hot may have a reducer to cut down pressure hence the pulsing that you say...
new washer valve on washers are designed to be "energy saving" most are 70/30..on warm 70 percent cold and 30 percent hot also new temp controls will reduce temp to a "safe level" by adding cold even on hot setting the on/off of water flow is being controlled by thermal sensor in water line on valve output ..in other words it's normal
its in your cold water line valve to the washer if it works good with hot water the valve are incoming line being blocked when you turn it on the pressure comes in fast then when pressure is gone water slows down so when its off the pressure builds back up it runs fast then slow
