Most probable cause for your problem is a faulty inlet valve. You've said that it won't fill if 'cold' is selected, and a lot of machines will only rinse with cold water.
Most machines can have a new inlet valve fitted without a lot of trouble.. You haven't stated your brand or model.
Not a big job for a tech....Good luck....Nomess

Cold water valve is faulty. on hotter washes it will fill with hot but all rinses are cold fill so will stop waiting for water at first rinse.

SOURCE: Cold water is not filling machine when place on cold washer cycle

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. Is the cold water turned on? If not, turn it on. Is the washer getting hot water but no cold water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct. Is there cold water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you need to replace the valve.

Hello Scott, welcome to FixYa.

I understand you have a GW712 Fisher & Paykel washer where "after filling, the hot and cold water temp lights flash", correct ?

According to Fisher & Paykel this can mean one of these scenarios is at the root of the error...

1) The taps have not been turned on.

2) Inlet hose screens may be blocked.

3) The hoses may be kinked.

4) The drain hose is too low or the drain hose is pushed into the standpipe too far and the water is siphoning out of the machine.

5) The flow rate of the supply water is too slow.



To address this, and as long as water is indeed entering the unit here`s what I find is most common (when dealing with the symptom you`ve describe) the hose screens at the water valve have become obstructed or partially at least, thus you still get through a cycle...even if having to attempt twice or up until the rinse when it needs "cold' water again...I would focus on the cold water line.

In my experience the other scenarios are less likely as well as more obvious when they occur. I would suggest you turn the water off and check and clean the screens at either end of the hoses (if applicable to your hoses...some only have screens in the valve) as shown in this example...

Let me know if this was indeed the case and if so please rate the solution accordingly. If not we can move forward from there, but please let me know. Thank's for coming to FixYa and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

If you can see a constant water pressure from the hot and cold, chances are the water solenoid valves are ok.

I would look towards resetting to factory and checking the main control unit.

Washer wont fill up during rinse cycle


all rinse cycles are filled with cold water to keep the clothes from wrinkling.set up the washer to run with just cold water.start it,if no water comes into washer,shut down your house water valve that fills the washer,take off the cold water hose,stick it in the washer or if there's a sink or where ever and turn on the water,if water comes out of the hose then you need a new water valve on the washer

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    The washing machine won't start if "cold water" only is selected. It will only work when "warm water" or "hot water" is selected (and even then there is only hot water filling the machine, the cold water...


    Check the cold water solenoid. If a meter is not available you can swap the hot and cold wires and see if the symptom changes to hot water when cold is selected. If so the mixing valve needs replaced. If no then further testing of the wire harness and timer circuit are needed.

    Cold fill washing machines


    If your washer is the type that all rinses are in cold water only this would make sense that in the winter months when the water is at it's coldest the clothes will feel cold after the spin cycle.
    If your washer has a warm rinse cycle and when you select the warm rinse option the clothes feel cold after the spin, then maybe the hot water supply line is plugged.I recommend disconnecting the hot water hose at the back of the washer and check the screen that is at the fill valve on the washer and make sure it isn't clogged with sediment or calcium build up or any other foreign material that would keep the hot water from entering the washer.If all is well there, suspect either the water temp selector switch or the hot water fill valve. Good luck !

    Stops in the middle of wash cycle


    Hi!

    If the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
    It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
    It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
    Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.
