    Turned out not only was the hose plugged, but I had to use a coat hanger to unblock the inlet to the hose from the basket. Thanks

Washing machines of any make or shape have a level sensor, this normally consists of a thin pipe from the lower end of the machine (where there is water) normally enters the bottom of the outer drum casing, this thin rubber or thin plastic pipe goes up to the top of the machine just inside the casing, it leads into a "pressure switch" a circular disc object about 50 cms in diameter on average, also this has about 4 to 6 wires on it, this thin pipe becomes blocked not allowing air to be forced up the tube into the switch, not switching the machine water flow off when it gets to the correct level empty the machine, drain off the water, unplug the power supply, and clear out this pipe, normally its congealed old soap powder, place pipe back as it was, checking for any leak holes in it, if damaged, replace it with new, run machine again to test long winded but i hope i have explained it thoroughly

My washer initial had a rinse cycle problem where no rinsing occur after washing, now it spreads to the wash cycle where it is pausing at the this cycle, need urgent advice

The problem is you are not getting cold water fill. (rinse is all cold water fill) Check to see if the inlet screen is plugged by turning valve off that supplies cold to the hose attached to the machine, then removing the hose at the machine and checking the filter inside the water valve where the hose was just removed from. If screen is not blocked, replace water valve.

Top loading GE color profile washer (wpse4200a) won't fill

You may have a water supply problem. There is a mesh screen in the hoses where they hook to the washer. Make sure they aren't clogged up

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!
