Whirlpool washing machine...when you try and use only cold water, it still uses only hot water...it doesn't seem like the washing machine wants to pull cold water, only hot, whether the temperature is on cold or hot. The cold water hose is clear and the cold water is on?

Make sure the hoses are connected correctly to the water valve on the machine. The connections will be marked with an "H" and a "C".
Given they are correct, most current washing machines have and auto temp feature on the water fill. It allows even cold water settings to bring in some hot water to make sure the water temp is hot enough to efficiently disolve your laundry detergant. The preset temps are usually around 75* for cold, and 105* for warm. Hot water comes in at whatever temp your household water temp is.

Make sure both hot and cold water supplies are turned on. Select a cold wash cycle and start the wash cycle, do you get cold water? Now select a hot wash cycle and start the wash cycle, do you get hot water? If you only get cold water replace the hot water fill valve. If you only get hot water replace the cold water fill valve. If you get neither replace both fill valves.
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.
F-20 error code in Whirlpool Duet Sport washing machine is indication of inadequate water supply. Check both hot and cold water supply lines to make sure machine gets enough water intake. If you do not have a hot water supply to the machine you can only run it with the cold temperature setting. This machine does not have an internal water heater and relies on the hot water supply from the house water heater.
If it is a hot and cold fill m/c, then you can just use it from cold water.
You would need to fit what is called a Y piece connector , this supplys water to both hot and cold valves regardless of what prog you select..
You connect the cold supply to the straight leg of the connector, and the hot and cold to the other 2 connections.
