I have an old, but still working Horizon 2000 washer that is very slow when only filing with cold water.  With warm the water seems to not be impeded.  The filters on the external hoses are clean and the flow from the hoses is strong.  Couldn't pull up previous postings on this issue, but believe it needs a new valve. 

Thanks,

Ok, the hose screens and hoses are clear, GOOD START!!

Now what about the screens in the water valve itself, remove the hose if you have reattached them and take a look at the screens in the water valve.

I hope you're still with me, took a while to get back into the washer.  I checked the screens on the valve and they are clear, same thing for the hoses.   I filled buckets of water using both hoses, and didn't see any clogs. 

Does this mean this is a valve issue?  To recap, when cold water is dispensing from the  Frigidare washer the machine makes a slight hum and water drips down very slowly.  Does this reflect an issue with the cold water valve?  All the advice till now is much appreciated.

I would suspect the flow washers inside of the valve have swollen up, not letting water thru, if it was my washer I would repalce the valve...

Thanks for the advice.  I think this is the next logical step.  If I may shoot two more questions.  I want to convirm that the following part is exactly what fits the Frigidaire Horizon 2000 Model WDSCLW2.

Lastly, is there an online repair manual that will help me take the rear cover off, and do the triage.

Thanks again.

Hold on guy!!!! Leave the back alone, only way in that side is with a sawz-all or cutting torch!!!!!

Real easy to access fill valve to replace.

1) UNPLUG WASHER!!!!
2) remove both hoses from back side of valve.
3) remove the one or two screws that mount the valve
to the back of the washer.
4) lift washer top by pressing in with a putty knife
about 2" in from each slide between washer top
and front panel.
6) note the location/colors of the four wires on the
old valve and then remove them along with the
small outlet hose.
7) reverse proceedure to install new valve.

The part you have found and referenced is the correct on.
