Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer
The flow of water is so slow. The cycle gets stuck when trying to fill the tub during rinse cycle. cold water hardly flows
This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve (also known as a "mixing valve") that is going bad. The water may appear to flow better during the intial fill cycle, because BOTH solenoids (HOT and COLD) are typically used during the initial FILL cycle. However, nearly all washers use a cold water RINSE. This means only one solenoid is energeized during the rinse cycle which reduces the water volume even more.
If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, the inlet valve and/or fill hose sediment screens can become clogged with sediment, calcified deposits and rust resulting in a restriction of water flow. You can try cleaning the sediment screens and the water inlet valve in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water to see if you can dissolve any sediment or deposits. Removing the valve from the washer and allowing it to soak in the solution for about 30 minutes, then flushing it with clean water can sometimes return an inlet valve to normal operation. If cleaning the valve does not work, however, you will need to replace it. The following link explains how:
