    I have the same problem and just switched the hot and cold hose so I now do a hot wash on the macine and that fills it with cold water no problems. But to it all fixed I bought a new cold water fill valve but this didn't fix the problem. I think the problem is in the PCB..

You need both of the solenoids to be operational for the machine to see them as good before it will dismiss the error.

Soloniod faulty

check the filters

at the intake the solinoids {water intake valves}
there is a small filter

you need to turn of the hot and cold water
like under the sink
take off both hozes hot and cold
then take out the filters at the machine intakes
and clean them
you can take out the filters
using flat nose plyers to gently pull them out
clean them out from brown crypto spyridion carcus
and other rubbish
you can leave the filters out and run thru the whole machine on like 30deg with a calgon tab
does help {not scotland no lime here }
then place the filters in the intakes again
or replace the valve if it leaks water after cleaning
then the spring in the valve of the valves solinoid coils isnt so good
and needs replaced
but can just be a blockage

above all if its a new machine you just got
perhaps it been in a low presure area so the valves will be
low presure hot and cold
usually its just the hot that is low presure

so you need to check the cold water is getting plenty on like 2 -3 bar presure...

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.

Samsung wf7700naw error 4e

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Samsung 'error 4e' decodes as 'water supply problem'.
If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Samsung washing machine SW50USP. Machine powers up, all buttons and settings work but when press start button the cold light and wash light start flashing but doesnt start to wash. After 2 minutes 4E shows...

I've just had the same problem with my Samsung SW50USP and had a technician out to have a look at it. Apparently the electronics are fried and it would cost much more than it's worth to fix. Time for a new machine unfortunately.

New whirlpool wtw5100VQ, will not fill hot/warm water,

Remove lid and just check connectors on rear of inlet vaulves are not earthing. Hope this helps. Also to check it is not a faulty solonoid remove wires from 1 terminal and tape them up, then put machine onto hot fill, if this does not blow trip switch then solinoid most likely at fault. Please ensure you disconnect power before touching wires. Good luck hope this helps

Have cold water, but no hot water for washer

Make sure the hot water is hot.....coming to the machine..See if you hear the control valve click in when you turn on the machine in a totally hot water setting..If no click or no water runs in the solinoid for hot water may be bad. It could also be the timer control unit. If you are savy with a multimeter you can check to see if the hot water solinoid is getting 120vac applied to it when it should be running hot water. If so the solinoid is bad if not the timer control unit is out...

No hot water

Make sure your hot water supply valve is on first. If so then try reversing the hot and cold water feed lines and see if you get hot water when asking for cold. The water valve for the hot water side could be bad. Are you familiar with a voltage meter or know someone that can see if you valve coil is getting 120V when the machine is trying to fill with hot water. If not the control unit is faulty. If you do have the 120Vac on the solinoid coil and no water the either the coil is open circuit(bad) or the inlet is plugged. Most generally the problem is in the control knob unit.
