I changed out the water inlet valve for a new one, thinking the problem was a sticking cold water valve, with no change in symptom . Same problem , no cold water. I switched the connections on the valves to see if it was a fault or wire break...Same problem, only hot water.
I was thinking it is a worn out water temperature switch in the control console.?
I checked all the connections for corrosion, etc., they look good.
Anybody have any suggestions whether I am on the right track.

Are you sure the cold water is on from the tap. When you switched out the connections on the valve you should have gotten cold water and no hot.

I unhooked the cold water hose and cold water came out. Could it be the water temperature control switch in the console ? Is there another component that could be causing this behavior? I am ready to try replacing the switch box.
I have also replaced the hoses thinking it could be some sort of blockage.
No dice...

I am going to say try changing out the temp control switch, but this is still somewhat of a mystery.

Default Maytag Toploading washer, the on going adventure

Well, I replaced the water temperature switches in the console, no dice still no cold water. Sofar I have replaced the hoses to the inlet valve, and the inlet valve. I am out of ideas. I have the sneaky suspician I am slowly building a new washing machine. Does anyone have any idea of what the problem is?
I am a stubborn Scotsman who does know when to quit....

May be time to recap what you have done and diagnose that.

I changed out the water inlet valve for a new one, thinking the problem was a sticking cold water valve, with no change in symptom . Same problem , no cold water. I switched the connections on the valves to see if it was a fault or wire break...Same problem, only hot water.
I was thinking it is a worn out water temperature switch in the control console.?

I do not think the control switch is the problem.
Diagnosis:
You have hot water so you know the hot valve gets power.
When you switched the lines to the valve. Hot power is now on the cold valve and cold power is on the hot valve.
You get hot water so you know that the cold power is OK.
Conclusion:
Power is OK to both the hot and cold valves.

I unhooked the cold water hose and cold water came out.
Conclusion: You have cold water.
Did the water come out at the same rate as the hot water?
Does the house plumbing have a burst hose protection system? These can do all sorts of not so wonderful things.
Swap the hoses at the valve. Run a cold only cycle if it fills with hot water then you know that there is a problem either with the cold hose or the house water supply.
If it does not fill then I would say that you received a defective inlet valve.
The odds of getting a defective valve with exactly the same symptoms as the one you replaced are slim but not impossible.

I hope the above makes sense.
sidfink43 If you see this and since you are the washing machine guru, does it make sense?

I agree with everything you say. The individual did say that he has cold water from the hose, which leads to your conclusion that the replacement valve assembly was also defective, which is just highly unusual.

If he was getting hot water after switching the connectors then he is getting power to both the hot and cold water solenoids and if he is getting hot and cold water from the hoses the valve assembly has to be the problem.

The only other explanation is that when the valve assembly was replaced he accidentally put the old one back in. Don't laugh, can't tell you how many times I have done that.
