Are you saying that the machine is not letting cold water into the machine? If so, the problem has to deal with the cold water inlet valve. Disconnect the cold water supply line at the machine, check to see if there is the screens are blocked with debri.

If it is ok, it's probally the water inlet valve which is the problem. It is an easy part to purchase at any appliance supply house or online. Hope this helps you.

Check the screen washer on the cold water hose. Many times these get plugged up and keep the water from flowing into the machine.. turn the valve off at the wall, and then take the hose loose from the valve.. check for cleanliness and flow. You can buy replacements at the local hardware stores..

My cold water on my whirlpool estate wont turn on only hot water works. When i set the cold /cold water water wont turn on . On hot/cold it turns on but only hot water comes out.

first thing to do is of course check to make sure the cold water is turned on.  sorry i had to put that in there.  you can take off the cold hose at the washer and check to see if there is a blockage such as calcium deposits which can block the line. if all that is clear then you will probably need to have the inlet valve replaced.

My washer cold water wont work the supply is good and it puts out hot water whats wrong

If I understand your issue correctly, you're saying no cold water gets to the machine. If that's true, then do the following:

Turn off the hot and cold water to the machine
Disconnect the cold water hose to the machine - catch the water from the hose in a small container
Check for a plugged water inlet screen - this is pretty common
Clean the screen, reconnect the hoses, turn on the water, check for leaks and try again
If no luck, you may have a bad cold water inlet fill valve, but it's much more likely to be a plugged screen

Washer wont allow cold water

Mixing valve should lock out the hot water when on the cold water setting. Either your hoses are crossed, or the mixing valve is flipped. To see if one of these is true, try it on a hot water setting to see if cold water comes in, or try just swapping the water hoses.

Change the water valve again ,you most likely got a bad one.The odds of there being no cold water after a new valve is almost impossible.You can test the valve to make sure its working before you go to buy another one.

chnge your water valve or your cold water hose. something could be blocking up your hose. also when you ask machine for cold water does the machine hum? if so check to see if cold water is on. if the water is on then replace your water valve.
