Re: only cold water
The solenoid that operates the valve for the hot water has probably failed.. A common fault on all machines.
Swap the wires from the hot inlet to the cold inlet and see if the hot water flows then. To check the cold tap, you will have to set it to hot, and to check the hot you will have to set it to cold (since the wires are around the opposite way) on the control panel.
Check power board also, there is a fuse that allows power to goto the inlet valves, though in your case seems to be OK as you are getting cold water still. Your particular model may have a seperate fuse for each solenoid though.
New inlet valves are available from any white goods repair shop. They come with a solenoid that operates the valve.
If this is still under warranty, then a call to F&P will have it fixed in no time. Make sure to have your serial number and all other info ready when you call.

G'day. The hoses from your laundry taps hook up to your machine onto what are called solenoids. These are like electrical taps. The machine decides when to turn these on and off and in what order via the timer and depending on what modes are selected.
Generally there is a hot and cold solenoid. If you have both hot and cold hooked up to your machine, you can simply swap these hoses around (put the hot tape on the cold solenoid and vis-versa) Then when you select cold, you'll actually be getting hot.
Some new machines heat water internally like dishwashers, and they only have one solenoid. Again if you put the hot tape only on, you will get hot water with cold selected.
In both solutions you are losing the option for cold or hot cycles with a click of a button - now you must swop hoses...
first test water valve ohms reading, this fault could be either control module or water valve.first open top panel to see valves. turn power off to unit. try putting the hot water valve wire to the cold and the cold to the hot. hopefully they will reach, sometimes they dont. then put panel back on with loose screws. turn power on , select low water ,and hot fill.push start button but make sure your hoses r connected and turned on. the reason i"m telling u how to do this is to eliminate the control board as being faulty if the cold water comes into unit then the problem is your computer, if no water comes in it is your water valve.i hope this helps if u still need help please reply
by memory it is located at the lop of unit, where u attach the inlet hoses 2 the machine. u need to remove inlet hoses first with water turned off, then undo 2 screws at back of washer holding plastic panel that covers water valves and electics. it unclips off, i always have trouble myself. once u have that panel off remove wires to hot valve ( that is the 1 that had the hot water hose attached to it) put your tester on the terminals. if u get a different continuity reading compared to your cold it is faulty. if it is the same your computer at the front of unit is faulty.see how u go but remember turn off the power b4 u work on it! dont want any acciedents. please reply back for more help. good luck!
Hi If your washer leaks every time you run it, then check these:
Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot
and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is
leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.
Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located
between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in
the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks,
you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while
the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The
leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center.
This seal is difficult to replace.
Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably
spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more
black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt
that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.
Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic
outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have
to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair
Please rate the solution if you find it useful and helpful.
most inlet water hoses have screens in them. You could remove the hose from the back of the washer and see if there is water flow. If there isn't, the hot water valve assembly is defective. These are solenoid operated valves that admit water into the tub. They can be accessed behind the washer after you remove the back.
It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap to break up efficiently.
During the cold months the water in your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of 78F for cold water cycles.
