There are strainers on both end of the hose maybe, certainley at the rear of the machine. Check for calcium flakes there. Next the intake water control valve may be lazy and not opening completly. With the hose loose from the machine turn on the supply (with a bucket) and see if the water supply and hose are up to par. The hose can be blocked inside from age and the walls inside it may be pulling loose and causing plaque like blockage. If all is well at this point look into the machine and the water control parts.

Remove the inlet solenoid valve and check if it is clear. You may be able to clean it out or you will have to replace it. There are inline filters available that can do a superior job of keeping dirt out of your machine than the coarse screens that are supplied with the hoses.

On demand, the cold water comes only trickling in. Hot is just fine.


If you turn off the water supply and switch the hot and cold hoses see if the problem the cold cycle is only trickling hot water. If the problem switches order a water inlet valve which is about $20.00. To replace the valve turn off the water and unplug the unit. Pull the unit out and remove the back panel. Disconnect the hoses from the valve and unplug the connecter. Replace the valve and plug in the connector reconnection all the hoses. Test the unit before closing it up.

Cold water trickles into the tub while it is being filled up


The hot and cold water supply hoses that connect the washer from the water supply faucets on the wall to the water connections on the back of the clothes washer usually have filter / sediment screens within there connection fittings at the end of the hoses, these will collect dirt,sand, calcium deposits, etc.,when they trap enough of these materials they will plug up and restrict the flow of water into the clothes washer. Turn off the water faucets at the wall, and you should do this for both hot and cold hoses, disconnect the hoses from the washer and the water faucets, look into the hose ends and pull out the screens and clean them out by running water and what ever you can use to clean them completely!!!!!
Now look inside the water connections on the back of the clothes washer,where you screw the hoses on the washer, and check to see if there are filter screens in there, if there is, remove them and clean out completely also, then reverse the removal process and reconnect the hoses, makeing sure to connect the hot and cold hoses to the right connection on the back of the clothes washer!!
Try filling the washer with water to see if you have corrected the problem.
Make sure hot and cold hoses are correct on the back of the washer!!!!
GOOD LUCK !!!!!!

Cold water just trickles in. Water flow up to the


Hello, this is going to be a problem with your inlet valve, First thing to do is remove the inlet hoses from the valve and check the filter screen on both the hot and cold for debris blocking the water coming into the machine. If this is clear then your going to have a blockage inside the valve. Since these valves are factory sealed your not going to be able to clear the blockage, you should replace the valve. Hope this helps...Thanks for using fixya!!! Good Luck!! Mike

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.

Cold water trickle hot water runs good


turn off water valves at wall, disconnect the supply hoses from the washer. where the hoses connect to the washer, there is usually a stainless steel screen/strainer inline on both the hot and cold inlet. corrosion on the cold side is pretty common. Menards, Lowes Home Depot stores sell the replacment screeens.

The cold water does not run it trickles, hot water runs very fast


If both solenoid coils check the same, you probably have a clogged supply hose. Check that the filter screens inside the hose (if present) and the fill valve inlet are clear of mineral buildup. Try switching the hot and cold supply lines to see if the trouble moves from cold to hot. If the cold still only trickles in, replace the fill valve.

Water barely trickles out for rinse cycle


Hello,

It sounds like you have some buildup in the cold water valve screen. Where the hose connects to the washer there should be a screen inside the valve. Remove the cold water hose from the washer and clear any debri on the valve screen.

If this doesn't fix the slow cold water flow then you will have to replace the whole water valve assembly. The water valve is the piece that the hoses connect too and supply water to the washer.

If you have anymore questions about this please ask. I will be more than happy to help you out.

Thanks
