When a washing machine is not getting any cold water, there’s no cause for panic. The seasoned experts at Paul’s Washer and Dryer Repair understand that when a washer allows cold water to enter the tub, the amount and efficiency depend greatly upon its make and model. Some washing machine’s direct cold water is used only during certain cycles. Others allow hot and cold water to enter in an alternating fashion in order to equalize the water temperature.
The first thing you should do is refer to your owner’s manual to ensure that your washer operating as it should. If you discover that it isn’t, investigate the machine’s water inlet valve. It could be defective, and causing your problem.
Washing machines have an electrically operated valve in them called a “water mixing valve.” This valve has separate solenoids for the hot and cold water. It’s very possible that the cold water solenoid isn’t working. Besides the cold water solenoid on the water mixing valve not working, it could also be that the shut off valve to the machine’s cold water supply hose is closed or that the filtration screen in that supply hose is clogged up.
