Fisher Paykel GWL11 Washer not filling and stalling in cycle
I have a Fisher & Paykel GWLL11 washing machine that is not filling properly. The hot water flows fine but the cold water just trickles in through the main fill fucntion. There is a secondary fill from the side and that part flows without a problem. So it is just the cold water that comes in from the back of the drum.
Other clues - part way through the wash cycles (3 green lights in all) the cycle stops and it beeps until I press the forward arrow. At that point it will proceed and then usually stall again at the beginning of the rinse cycles. If I set the machine to low water level it usually makes it all the way thruogh the rinse cycle without further stalling.
I checked the input hose and screens and they are all clean.
Any idea how to proceed from here?

That's not a popular brand in my area. Here's the service manual. I hope it helps.

you need a new cold water valve. your machine will wash on warm or hot cycle because it can use the hot water valve to fill the washing machine with water but when it gets to the rinse cycle it only uses cold water to rinse and if your cold water valve doesnt work properly it will stop and flash.

Thank you. DO you know if there is a video site or some place that will help me see how to actually replace that?
