3 things to check.. Make sure that you are getting hot water upply. Check your water inlet valve. IF both are ok then check the switch to make sure that it is sending power to the water inlet valve to let it open. These parts can be found behind the knobs after you remove the cover

You may have a defective cold water solenoid on the water inlet valve. There is a separate solenoid for hot and for cold. So, if you've confirmed the inlet screens are clear, more than likely you will need to replace the valve. If this is a Kenmore top loader, the following link explains how to replace a water inlet valve:
This is a very simple and inexpensive repair. The average cost is about $30-$35. A replacement can be purchased at any of the following websites:
If you need further assistance, please post back with your complete model number (located under the wash lid along the tub rim), so that I may be able to provide you with better service. I hope this helps you.

This is usually caused by the dual water valve on the back of the machine failing.
It supplies both cold and hot water to the machine.
In your case, it appears the cold water side of the valve has failed.
It is a none repairable item, and you will need to replace the valve which is available at any decent sized appliance parts house.
However, before replacing the valve, make sure the cold water from the faucet is turned on, and with that hose removed, make sure cold water will come out of the hose if you turn the cold water valve on.
