I have a Kenmore 90 Series washer. The cold water does not fill at the "wash" cycle, but it fills during the "rinse" cycle. I also noticed that when I use the "Automatic Temperature Control" settings of Cold/Cold it works during the "wash" cycle". There is no issue with the hot water. I've also checked the water pressure and the valve screens. I am thinking that I need to replace the water inlet valve, but I wanted to make sure that this is the issue/only issue. If there is another issue that I need to address I'd like to know so that I can replace all at the same time.

 :thanks:

Sorry for taking so long to reply. I replaced the temp switch and it is running as it should now. I want to thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Thanks again!
