When turned to "cold" the


Rinse is always cold only on most machines. Why? Because rinse with hot water causes wrinkles. You have a bad cold water solenoid or fouled cold water valve innards from lime and such OR a clogged water valve inlet screen on the cold water side. Remove the cold water hose and check for blocked screen.

Cold fill washing machines


If your washer is the type that all rinses are in cold water only this would make sense that in the winter months when the water is at it's coldest the clothes will feel cold after the spin cycle.
If your washer has a warm rinse cycle and when you select the warm rinse option the clothes feel cold after the spin, then maybe the hot water supply line is plugged.I recommend disconnecting the hot water hose at the back of the washer and check the screen that is at the fill valve on the washer and make sure it isn't clogged with sediment or calcium build up or any other foreign material that would keep the hot water from entering the washer.If all is well there, suspect either the water temp selector switch or the hot water fill valve. Good luck !

Cold water valve not working


Sounds like either the water valve is bad, or the screen in the valve is clogged. Take the hose (cold) off at the valve and look for the screen to be clogged. If it is not clogged, replace the water inlet valve.

When washing machine goes to rinse cycle, water barely comes in


I am going to guess you run a warm wash, and cold rinse. This sounds like the screen on the cold water inlet is clogged. Shut the water off and remove the hose at the back of the machine. Look in the water inlet and see if the screen is clogged. If so, carefully scrape it as clean as you can. Use a straw and blow into it to help clear it out. Replace the hose and try it. It does not need to be perfectly clean, but at least half way opened will suffice.

I can't get the cold water to fill the tub/rinse. the hot works.


Your problem is either a clogged COLD fill valve or a bad water fill valve. Turn the water off. Remove the COLD hose from the WASHER. Check the filter screen inside the valve for sediment. If you find sediment,remove the screen and clean it. Replace the screen and turn the water back on. If you do not find sediment on the screen,replace the water valve.

My washing machine will fill with hot water only, no cold water comes out and the machine gets stuck on teh rinse cycle


Check for a cold water supply problem by taking a look at the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small metal screens inside the openings on the valve (especially the cold water side). Make sure they are free of rust or debris. Check the solenoids. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need replaced. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

WATER TEMP CONTROL PROBLEM i have no cold cold wash rinse cycle,only hot cold and that rinses in hot


Hi, Sounds like the cold water side of the mixer valve has gone bad or has gotten plugged. Do you have cold water in the wash cycle?
Remove the hoses from the inlet valve and see if there is sand in the screens.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

No water on cold wash/cold rinse setting


Tip1. Make sure your cold water turnoff is turned on all the way off before you check water screen. It could be clogged with sediment located inside threaded cold water hose connection.If clogged scrape clean or replace screen.Reconnect cold water hose and turn cold water supply all the way on. Tip2. Electric water solenoid could be defective or simply have a loose wire on the plug of the solenoid or loose plug / wire on mode switch.

Hot Water runs in fine but the cold only trickles into Washer,


There are 2 hoses. Hot and cold and if the nobs are not turned wide open then it will not give you the water like you want. Check to make sure that the hot water nob is turned to were the water should come out like the cold. If not that then check the water heater and see if it is set up the way it needs to be.
