Question about Washing Machines
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. shoul look something like this somthing like this

If you turn off the hot water line, and you have cold water then suspect the water inlet valve. Unplug the unit and turn off the water to disconnect the water hoses. Pull out the washer and remove the back of the unit by the water hose inlet. The new valve is around $65.00 and is on connectors, which make it an easy fix.
