The washer will not fill with cold water
Answer The valve that allows cold water in could be faulty and will not open to allow the unit to fill. To find the correct water valve we would need a model number.

Slow fill up. How do you clean water valves?
Answer Undo the hose on the faucet side and undo the hose on the valve side and pop out the screens. You can use a small amount of white vinegar and hot water to soak them clean.

No cold water, probably water inlet valve? This is a red body one, trying to reinstall cold on top of hot on outside panel, but valve is marked opposite. Any suggestions?
Answer Hello Jeff, the correct water valve for this unit is 285805. The cold side generally is on the right side of the unit or in this case it will be cold on top and hot at the bottom. Hope this helps!

My washer will not fill with water. I have cleaned all the intake hose screens.
Answer Hello Betty. Test for power to the water valve. If there is power there, then replace the water valve. If there is no power there, then check the pressure switch in the unit. Also, make sure the temp switch is good. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
The cold water surges on fill, both for wash and rinse cycles. At times it can be quite strong. What could the problem be? Thanks!
Answer Hello! This unit is designed to run cold/hot or both at the same time, depends on the cycle you select. The manufacturer designed this way so that the water temperature is at an optimum range to activate the suds in the detergent. Hope this makes sense!
When washer is filling up the water continues to run in to tub after the washer starts to wash. I have to cut water off manually or the room will be flooded. What causes this?
If you can unplug the unit and the water shuts off then the issue would be in the controls of the unit sending power to the valve when it should stop. If the water still continues to run with unplugged then the issue would be in a faulty water valve that is stuck open.
Washer doesnt fill with water.
Answer Hello Daniel. Check and make sure the screens are not clogged. If they are clear and the water comes out good from the hoses, you will check the water valve and the pressure switch to see if they are bad. If there is power to the water valve and no water, you will need to replace the valve on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
