When you had the water lines off the unit did you check the filter screens where the hoses screw on? .Their are screens in the washer inlets to keep crud out the washer.These screens can be carefully removed cleaned and reinstalled .The cold side is always the one to cause the problem because the hot side most of the crud has settled in the hot water heater If for some reason that did not fix your problem you will need to replace the inlet valve solenoid assy. Hope this Helps GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: Cold water trickles, hot water fills fast as normal

where your water lines connect there is a sc reen inside and if it is clogged with rust lime and or mineral deposit. it needs cleaned out. you can pull it out with a ice pick or something pointy. Check your screen first and if that doesn't fix ya then yes replace the unit.

SOURCE: Kemore 80 series washer - cold water fill is only a trickle

This problem may be attributed to a defective cold water solenoid on the water inlet valve. The following link explains how to access and/or replace:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r600647-replacing_water_inlet_valve_kenmore

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, sediment and rust can often clog the valve or sediment screens in the hose and fittings. You can attempt to clean the valve by removing it and allowing it to soak in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and water. Submerse the valve fittings in the solution and allow to soak for 30 minutes. Do not get the electrical contacts wet, however. Rinse with clean water. Make sure you also check the ends of the fill hoses as well. Many of them have restrictor screens that can also become clogged.

If you wish to replace the valve, replacements can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartrspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. All these sites offer great service and competitive pricing, so shop around for the best deal. This isn't an expensive repair and its not difficult.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: cold water pressure is very low

Do you have a regular "boiler drain" type valve for your cold water supply? Is it possible your washer came loose inside the valve like mine did?

You will of course have to turn off the water mail to check this.

Sounds to me like your inlet valve is gunked up. You will need to replace your inlet valve. I would also check your hoses first to make sure the cold water hose does not have a screen on it that is full of calcium deposits. Hope this helps _MJ_

With posi-temp cartridges, if one supply of water, hot or cold, is interrupted, the cartridge automatically restricts the flow of the other water source. This is to prevent you from getting scalded if the pressure on the cold side drops because of a toilet being flushed or any other uses of cold water. The cartridge will only allow cold water to flow through if there is hot water to balance it out. If you restore hot water to the faucet, it will operate properly.

Slow cold water flow won't go back to full flow


I think the water inlet valve is nearly stopped up with sediment in the screen filter where the supply hose screws to the valve.Cut the water off at the hose and disconnect and look for the screen. The hot water usually doensn't do this because the water has time to settle everything out while it's in the hot water heater.

Hot water just trickles in both of my Kenmore top loader washers


Try reversing hot for cold hoses and see what happens. That will test your valves, hot water pressure, etc. As far as I know, the valve screens are right where the hoses hook up.
