Reading some information on-line of what could be the problem, started with removal of water in-let hoses checking the inside filter screen on the Water Inlet Valve, it was clogged, removed valve cleaning screens as best as could. Used low pressure air to blow out also. Replaced with some success of washer operation but not complete. The water temperature switch worked on warm(water was hot) and hot for wash but would not operate rinse with cold water. Replaced both valve and switch the washer works good once more, no problems with water temperature selection. Decided to replace both water feed hoses while having the washer away from the wall. Thought purchase of replacement parts to be a good investment.
