Kenmore washing machine fills with cold water only--no

Customer Question

Kenmore washing machine fills with cold water only--no matter what the water temp setting. Apparent electrical issue--nothing worked until I opened the control counsel and partially closed it.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: purchased May 2009. Model 29622800
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes--if possible. Recently replaced a timer.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Machine working when last used a week ago. Turned on today with no response. Turning on at various settings produced an electronic hum on spin only. Open back, checked electrical connections, shut back and turned on--cold water only flowing to tub.
