Question about Whirlpool LSR5132PQ Top Load Washer
Check to see if there's good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine. If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve.Replace the water inlet valve with this part.

It sounds like you have some buildup in the cold water valve screen. Where the hose connects to the washer there should be a screen inside the valve. Remove the cold water hose from the washer and clear any debri on the valve screen.
If this doesn't fix the slow cold water flow then you will have to replace the whole water valve assembly. The water valve is the piece that the hoses connect too and supply water to the washer.
If you have anymore questions about this please ask. I will be more than happy to help you out.

Cold water pipe had become frozen. FYI this model of washer has a nice feature whereas you can test each component i.e. valves, by setting the timer and reading the LED's on the front panel. Instructions are in the schematic.

No it is probably the screen that is either in the end of the hose that attaches to the machine, and/or the screen is placed so that the cone is toward the machine instead of pointing away from the machine.
If the cone is pointing towards the machine any debris in the lines would collect and eventually fill the screen cone and slow or shut off water flow.

SOURCE: no cold water, only hot
Here are some things to check that are general for all washers.
Is the cold water turned on? Are the hoses connected to the correct faucets? Is the filter screen inside the hose where it connects to the faucet clogged? Do you hear a buzzing sound when the washer is trying to fill and is set to COLD only?
If all the above are OK then the temperature selector switch (or electronic control) may have to be replaced.
If there is no buzzing sound when the washer is trying to fill on Cold only, the solenoid valve (that the hoses connect to on the washer) may have to be replaced.

Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clean of rust or debris. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.
