You have a clogged water inlet valve on the cold water side, or the cold water solenoid is defective. Turn the water off at the taps, remove the hoses and check the water inlet sediment screens for debris. It could that all you need is a good cleaning. If the problem does not clear up after cleaning, replace the inlet valve. Click on the following link for step-by-step instructions:

Water is cold regardless of the setting


I would check the water tempeture knob with a multimeter, u did check the water outlet hoses to see u are getting hot and cold water from them? Also if ur water inlet valve is bad it may only allow cold water or only hot water?

Hot water barely comes out,


If you switched the feed hoses over and the problem reversed itself, cold has gone from fast to slow useing the hot water pipe and hot from slow to fast useing the cold water pipe then this would indicate a fault in the water supply from the hot pipe. What sort of pressure is coming from the hot pipe when not connected to the machine but filling in to a bucket? Are there any shut off valves before the pipe that supplies the hot water? Are they fully turned on? Any kinks in the feed pipe for the hot water? Has the hot water feed pipe collapsed internally? Change the pipe to check this and not just at the machine side.

This seems to me to be that the hoses are connected backwards. It matters very much which hose is connected to which inlet. Make sure that the hoses are on Hot to "H" and Cold to "C" on the machine.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

the inlet valves just open and close, if you have high cold water pressure, it will override the hot water. I suggest you turn down the cold water valve, until warm is kinda warm. your cold water fills will take longer, but you will have warmer water

When washing machine goes to rinse cycle, water barely comes in


I am going to guess you run a warm wash, and cold rinse. This sounds like the screen on the cold water inlet is clogged. Shut the water off and remove the hose at the back of the machine. Look in the water inlet and see if the screen is clogged. If so, carefully scrape it as clean as you can. Use a straw and blow into it to help clear it out. Replace the hose and try it. It does not need to be perfectly clean, but at least half way opened will suffice.

I DON'T GET WARM WATER, WHEN SET ON WARM, ONLY GET COLD


If the setting is only hot and cold, there will be no
warm water coming out. At warm setting if it is
present, it should give you warm water.

Cannot get cold water to come into the washer


Turn off the water and reverse the hot and cold water connections going into the faucet, then turn the water back on. If only cold water comes out of the unit when on hot temperature then you need to order a water valve solenoid which I suspect is the problem or wash only in cold water. They are replaced by removing the back washer panel a couple of bolts, one connector, and two hose clamps. Remember to restore the hot and cold water connections.

Cool water comes out on warm water setting.


The water that is coming from the hot water pipes is likely not hot because it cooled down while sitting in the pipes. We had similar issues with hot water not being ready when our appliance needed it. We heard about Redytemp from our plumber. We have yet to have anymore problems with having hot water when needed.

Water drip into washer, used to gush in. Now water pipes bang, whine


The problem is the 10 cent rubber washer in a shut off valve in your plumbing. The brass screw that holds this washer has corroded and the washer has come loose. It now floats around inside the valve and the water flow can be blocked at one time, whistle, howel and make bangs at another. It could be any valve including the main shut off. You can listen to the pipes but the sound travels, so you are looking for the loudest spot. A new washer and screw could fix it, but sometimes the screw is broken off requiring a new valve stem. Be prepared to replace the whole valve.
