    I have the same problem on a Maytag Ensignia washer (model number MAV6358AWW). I have a temporary fix that sometimes works. When the problem occurs, I just play around with the Automatic Temperature Control feature.

    Here's an example sequence of steps:
    1) Problem: On cold/cold setting, no water comes out.
    2) Switch to warm/cold setting. Water starts coming out.
    3) Turn "Auto Temperature Control" on.
    4) Switch to cold/cold setting. Now only cold water comes out, as desired.
    5) (Optional) Turn "Auto Temperature Control" off.
    6) (Optional) Shut off hot water valve at the wall. That's because warm water sometimes comes out on the cold/cold setting on my machine. Remember to turn it back on when you're done with your load.

You need to remove the cover and check the voltage to the cold water inlet valve. Do this with a volt meter while it is set to fill with cold water. It is most likely an AC voltage that is around 24 volts. If you have voltage then the valve is most likely bad.

It sounds like you have the hot and cold water lines to the washer reversed.  Try turning off the tap for the hot water then setting the washer to just cold wash and then  hot washif you get nothing on the cold and cold water when set to hot they are probably reversed.  Typically if the auto-temp control is broken you will only get hot or cold coming out on any setting.

Washer will work in Rinse or Spin settings, but not any wash settings

If you are doing the normal procedures and the water elimination function is working, you have power to the circuit board and controls. The circuit board wash cycle section is independent and aligned with the timer circuit, thus the Wash Cycle Controller has failed. All of the functions or options are one the one board and a replacement board needs to be purchased and installed.
