The tub won't fill in the Cold wash cycle, but will rinse.  Warm wash is hot only, Hot wash works fine.

The cold water switch seems to be malfunctioning on the initial fill cycle only.  During the later cycles (depending on the chosen cycle) the cold works fine to rinse, fill, etc.

Hot water works fine in all cycles.

So....I'm guessing the pressure switch for cold is operable since it works sometimes.  Should I replace the Timer?Posted Image

 

Thanks in advance for your input on this one.

Sounds like you need to start by checking the temperature selecter switch, as this tells which side of the water valve, or both sides to open , when.  You could also have a fill valve going bad but would check the temp sw. first.

Samurai's 6th Law of Appliance Repair illumines us, "Begin troubleshooting directly at the problem."  In observance of the 6th Law, I would begin troubleshooting right the valve using my light stick.  If my magical stick tells me I'm getting voltage to the cold water side of the valve but the water is not forthcoming, I have proven that the valve is bad and I'd git me a new one.   No voltage = bad temp selector switch (which would be independently verified by a continuity test.)

Samurai,  truely you are at one with the force.  I have already taken steps to acquire my very own light stick.  Your troubleshooting knowledge is most impressive.  However,  I must point out that the new style GE washers take a WH13X86 fill valve
