I have recently come across several washers where the screen in the cold water line is clogged with a white calcium-like residue, preventing any water from even entering the valve. Turn off the cold water at the supply valve, remove the hose at the machine and check the screen for blockage. If this is not the problem then it probably is the valve itself as suggested by tresilla.

Check you have cold water present by cracking open the fill hose and see if a squirt comes out. (you may have the tap turned off by accident) put on cold fill and listen close to the water intake. you should hear a low humming noise which is the valve energised. if not, probability is that the cold water valve is open circuit

Whirlpool Ultimate care 2 washer doesnt fill on start or rinse or spray in spin all other functions fine whats wrong?

The water valve has a 'Hot' and 'Cold' side, make sure to test if the unit will fill at a different water temp. setting, as a Cold/Cold setting will paralyze the machine if the Cold side of the water valve has failed... Some newer machines have temperature sensors attached to the valve and will not fill if the sensor fails... Washing Machine Water Inlet Valve 285805

Hot water just trickles in both of my Kenmore top loader washers

Try reversing hot for cold hoses and see what happens. That will test your valves, hot water pressure, etc. As far as I know, the valve screens are right where the hoses hook up.

Haier Genesis HLT364XXQ CAN'T GET HOT WATER WASH

hey Paul, you don't have to wash anything in hot water. Hot water only wastes money and does nothing, in my opinion, to get anything cleaner. It does ,however set the stains. To kill any thing the water has to be 212 degrees [ boiling ]I have not used hot water for over 40 years and our clothes are coming out clean. Just set the machine on cold. I put a twoway spigot on my cold tap and put the hot water and cold water together incase someone breaks in and does my laundry. Barry

Cold water will not fill in Kenmore top load washer

The problem is most likely the cold water adapter. There is a wire harness that connects to it to tell it when to turn on the water. That part is not functioning properly anymore and that is why it is humming when it tries to work. Cheap part and it can be bought at any appliance repair shop. When you take off the back panel you will see what I am talking about. I used to work for Sears as an appliance repair man and I saw this problem a lot with Kenmore washers. It's easy to fix and not very expensive. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Cold water doesn't work in my washer

There's no cold water Some washing machines allow cold water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine is not working the way it used to--or should--check the following.

  • Is the cold water turned on? If not, turn it on.

  • Is the washer getting hot water but no cold water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.

  • Is there cold water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you need to replace the valve.

GE Washer wbsr3140d5ww water problem

Hello Chad
Welcome

Sounds like the cold water knob or switch is not switching and may be faulty.

I have a problem with my washer
For some reason when I try to start the washer and I have it set to cold it does not work if I put it to hot then its fine
The cold water does work though because if I change the washer to a later cycle cold water comes out just fine.
So it almost seems like its the timer knob
any ideas?
Thanks
