Question about Washing Machines
Let's think and work this one thru:
Your machine probably has several temperature settings, right?
So-- when you set it for COLD-- it fills at the normal rate?
When you set it for WARM-- does only COLD water still only come in?
And if you set it for HOT-- Nothing comes in?-- correct?
Now lets get to the pipes in the back:
Is there a Laundry sink, or a hose or something nearby, so you can be sure you have HOT water to the Washing Machine?-- Is the Hot water flowing good and strong nearby the WASHING MACHINE-- WHEN YOU TEST IT?
And the Valve is not shut at the Washing machine-- (Hot shut, but cold open?)
If you are sure that you have a good supply of HOT water to the machine,--- If you have tested that you actually have a good flow, -- say with the Hose removed, and you run the Hot water into the machine (by-passing the internal control valve!!)--
Then it sounds like: Either the control is not telling the internal solenoid valve to open-- or the valve needs to be replaced.
Do you want to attempt this repair-- or do you want to call for help at this point?
Let me know what you find-- and how far you want to go by yourself.

The problem is with your water valve. It needs to be replaced.
To access the washer follow these steps...
UNPLUG THE WASHER!
1.) Remove the 2 screws from either side of the control panel.
2.) Pull the control toward you a 1/4", then rotate it up and all the way over.
3.) Remove the white plastic wire connector to the top panel (it has 3 wires in it.).
4.) Remove the two clips on either side of the top panel. Do this with a screwdriver. Poke the screwdriver into the top panel to engage the clip, now rotate the screwdriver toward the rear panel.
5.) Lift the lid (for a hand hold) and rotate the entire cabinet forward to about a 45 degree angle then slide it toward you. Set it aside.
Here's a video that shows how it's done. But you'll notice that the screws on your control panel are in the front, the video has the screws in the back, but the rest is the same. Here's the video.
After you have access, you'll see the water valve on the right.
If this was helpful, would you take a moment and rate my solution? Thanks,

Based on your description, the selenoid is bad.
The same device feeds both cold and hot water - so locate your machine model number and year.. and look up the replacement incoming water selenoid part number. You will need to purchase it and replace it.
If your machine is under warranty, call their Customer Service line and report the water flow/noise problem.
Please let us know your findings...

SOURCE: hot water not getting to washer
This problem is commonly attributed to a defective water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve). The valve has two electronic solenoids that control the turning on and off the hot and cold water. If the cold water works, but the hot water does not, chances are the hot water solenoid is bad. The following link explains how to access and replace one:
If you post back with the model number I may be able to provide you with a part number. You can purchase replacement parts at any of the following web sites:
Prices vary between sites so shop and compare. The first three sites also have helpful exploded view diagrams you can use to refer to for easy part identification.
If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
