I have a Hotpoint (GE) Model HTWP1400F2WW that will not fill with cold water during the wash cycle but it will fill with cold in the rinse cycle. Hot water and warm settings work in the wash cycle but warn is hot , no cold water. I think it is the inlet valve but am not sure since it allows cold in the rinse, this inlet valve has 3 solenoids.

Thanks in advance

Hi Terry,

I'd first test for 120 volts at the cold side solenoid of your water inlet valve when it should be putting in cold water in the wash cycle.

If you don't have a multimeter its going to be hard to narrow down the problem.:)

But since the rinse cycle is filling with cold fine, then it seems the water temperature switch is all it could be.:)

Here's the water temperature switch for your model:
WH12X10498 Rotary Temperature Switch
