Some things to check. Is the hot water valve turned on? Is the hot water hose strainer and machine inlet strainer clear of clogs? If neither of those is the problem, then it has to be either the water temperature selector or the hot water solenoid valve. Depends on how handy you are if you want to tackle troubleshooting and possibly replacing ether of these.

Your machine can be connected for cold fill only but,you will need to connect a "Y-Piece" for it to work: The tail of the "Y" attaches to the cold water valve on your pipework. You then attach both hot and cold water hoses to the branches of the "Y" and connect both hot and cold water hoses to your washing machine. The wash cycles will take longer when connected this way as the machine has to heat the water internally. It will also be less energy effecient.
Hi just read your posting.Now, when the hot and cold lights flash at the same time it means that you are not getting enough or no hot or cold water.Remove the cold and hot inlet hoses from the machine end and put the ends into a bucket.Now turn the taps on to see if you have water coming out the hot and cold hose and if the water pressure is adequate.Try a cold fill on the wash cycle and see how it goes.please reply and let me know if there is water coming out of the hoses at a good pressure and also what water temp do you select on the wash cycle.Looking forward to your reply.
Hi Fiona.I believe the cold valve is probably faulty & is not flowing fast Its probably dribbling water in?taking forever to fill.the machine should be giving up & beeping at you if thats the case.If you have a faulty cold valve then switching to warm won't help as the hot valve will close itself off to compensate for the lack of cold water..afterall you have told the machine to fill with warm,,if it cant make warm water because of a faulty cold valve then the hot will decrease to a point where its not letting any water thru..try a hot only wash..if it goes thru wash cycle ok then good chance its cold valve problem.wow i hope that helped.
If it is a hot and cold fill washer, yes, then it could be a hot water problem related to the valve, or the water supply., if it is cold fill only, then the problem is elsewhere.
Pleas rate my solutikon.
It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when
filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because
even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap
to break up efficiently.
During the cold months the water in
your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add
some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is
adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of
78F for cold water cycles.
