Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Need to add 4-5 gallons of water to every load in order to get clothes clean.

Possible that the inlet vavle is choked with dirt and should be cleaned. when the machine is switched on there must be free flow or else the filter in the inlet is dirty which can be removed and cleaned,
Also choose a different cycle to vary the timing of the wash.

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II is not working properly

its is proberly the cold water vavle open circiut what happends is that if you where doing a normal load when this happend first time the computer in the machine will have stuck on that wash cycle and by putting it on a cold wash it will still fill up with hot water but dont worry if the cold vavle is replaced it will finnish the wash that it started (if this makes sence the cycle that you 1st selected might have been a low temp wash so the hot and cold will both come in together then it censes that the water is to hot so it switches the hot water valve off and the cold will stay on untill the machine fills to the crrect level and the machine carries on and complets that wash ( but because the cold valve is faulty it cant complet the only way to be sure that it is the cold valve valve is to take off the top off the machine and you will see where your cold water pipe connects thats the cold water valve usualy two valves together with 4 wires make sure you are switched off at the plug now swap the wires over on the two valves 2/&/2 one vavle is the rinse & main fill the other is the fab conditioner dont touch the hot valve wires and then what should happen is the machine will go though a complete wash but put it on the wash you started with so it can go though that wash the only thing that by doing this is that it will not take in the fab conditioner (i say it wont but it will because you swopped the wires over its going to fill the fab conditioner compartment and not the rinse compartment so swop the hoses on the valves also they will just pull off at leised you will know that is what your problem is the cold water valve is at fault. when you get the new valves dont forget to switch every thing back to how it should be ie change wires and hoses the machine may stop before spin because you have swoped the wires so dont worry it may not it is the easyest way for me to tell you how to test what i believe to be the problem you can get a set of water valves on line just type in washing machines put in your make model no and water valves or water soliniods and you will find them it will give you the price before you buy anymore help let me know

Water for intial fill works fine . when it goes to rinse cycle the water just dribbles in making wash time go on for ever ! whats the solution?

when you start the washer set it just on cold and see if it fills slowly,when the washer goes to rinse it just uses cold water,you could have a problem with the washer or in the house,when you run it on just cold and if it dribbles in,stop it shut down the water going to the washer,remove the cold water hose from the back of the washer,stick it in the sink or inside the washer and turn it on,if it comes out strong then you have a bad water valve on the washer,if it comes out slowly you have a bad water valve in the house and it's not the washer.hope this helps

Water continues to fill machine,i can have it turned off and unpluged and water continues to fill machine,its a older kenmore,top loader

this is caused by a bad/stuck open mixer valve. remove and replace the valve with a new one and that will fix your problem. the valve is the one where the two hoses go into the washer -- remove the back panel of the machine,the vavle is held in place by one small screw. take note what wires are going to the hot valve and what wires are going to the cold side. this will fix your problem.
you can buy a new mixer from your local Kenmore appliance repair shop.

My Kenmore series 80 washer's cold outlet doesn't work

Hi, It does sound like the inlet valve is bad. If the screen inside the inlet vavle is not plugged, you will most likely need to change the valve. If you will send me a model #. I can tell you how to get to the valve for replacement.

Maytag neptne fav 6800 aww does not fill wiht hot water. works fi

Hi Big Wags

I would remove both water hoses at the back of the washer and check the Hot & Cold inlet screens for a clog/restriction.

They look like this;


You can turn the individual valves on in service mode using the procedure on page 16 of the Service Manual.

To enter Service Mode; press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps and the display reads “00”.

Now go into board output test by pressing the Delicates key.

Now press the Normal button to open the Hot Water Valve you can press the Normal button again to turn off the valve or just press the Off button to end the process. Or just use the wash cycle to toggle the H/C water valves on. I like folks to become familiar with using Service Mode and the SM.

If the inlet screens are free of debris and you have good water pressure from your source valve then you may have to replace the valve assembly Here is a link to check for FAV6800AW PARTS Sears Parts Direct. Shout back If you have questions. Rich
