Might be a bad inlet valve. To confirm, swap the hot and cold hoses to your washer so that the cold water feeds the hot water connection and the hot water feeds the cold water connection. Turn off both hot and cold water faucets. Set the washer for a warm water wash. Turn on the cold water faucet, and check the flow. Then turn off the cold water faucet, and turn on the hot water faucet and check the flow. If the cold water flow fill slowly, then the problem is with the inlet valve.
It an easy part to obtain from an appliance supply house. To install disconnect the hoses to the back of the machine, and remove the back panel to get access to the valve. Should only take a couple of minutes to remove and install. Hope this helps you.
You probably have a cold inlet valve with restricted flow, either because the filter on the inlet valve is clogged or because the cold valve is failing......If you wash on "warm" you have both hot and cold water mixed. On rinse there is probably only cold water used....Check water flow for HOT and COLD settings and you'll probably see the difference...Good luck...Nomess
Check the solenoid. You can swap the hot and cold water hoses and set the wash for hot but cold will come out. Then you can see if the flow is better. If it is the cold valve isn't opening all the way.
First - check the water inlet hose screen for calcium or rust build-up.
If cold water is filling slowly, take these steps:
Unplug the washer.
Turn off the cold water supply faucet.
Remove the fill hose connected to the back of the washer.
Checkthe fill screen on the cold water inlet valve for debris or depositsthat can restrict the water flow. If necessary, you can carefully pullthe screen out and clean it. Flush the inlet thoroughly and replace thescreen. NOTE: If debris makes it past this screen, it can cause thevalve to leak and cause a flood in your laundry room. Monitor thewasher for this type of problem is you pull the screen out and clean it.
Placethe end of the hose in a bucket and briefly turn on the faucet to checkfor proper pressure and flow from the cold water hose. If waterpressure from the cold inlet water hose is bad, check the hose forclogs. If the hose is okay, then I recommend calling a plumber to checkthe water supply to your washer cold water faucet.
If the above checks do not help you resolve the fill problem, you will likely need to replace the inlet fill valve.
Your cold water fill valve (mixer valve) solenoid has failed if after cleaning - the condition remains. CLICK HERE for a replacement part.

Yeah you need to replace the water valve. To get to it you need to remove the cabinet on the newer direct drive models, If yours has a rear access panel then you simply pop the top to get to the valve after removing the hoses. Fairly simple job. Here is a good website for direct drive coupling replacement . It shows you how to open the cabinet. http://repair2000.com/coupling.html GVI 151 is the generic part that fix all belt drive models. Direct drive will need its own little water valve buy hay it ain't but 20 bucks. For a better explanation post you model number in the comment box and I will research it further for you amigo.
Hey there. I've had the same problem recently. It would fill slowly, and then after a while, it wouldn't fill at all. So I got some a new valve. it cost about $NZ30 delivered. You'll need one each for hot and cold. You can get parts from http://www.primedistributors.co.nz/. I think the part you need is 426142. you can check an image of it on the website. Good luck.
