If you switched the feed hoses over and the problem reversed itself, cold has gone from fast to slow useing the hot water pipe and hot from slow to fast useing the cold water pipe then this would indicate a fault in the water supply from the hot pipe. What sort of pressure is coming from the hot pipe when not connected to the machine but filling in to a bucket? Are there any shut off valves before the pipe that supplies the hot water? Are they fully turned on? Any kinks in the feed pipe for the hot water? Has the hot water feed pipe collapsed internally? Change the pipe to check this and not just at the machine side.
If you have checked that the hot water tap is turned on fully and the hose is not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking the hot water inlet filter. Turn the tap off and remove the hot water hose at the washer end. Inside the inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace it and the hose. If after turning the tap back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot water control valve. Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
There are a few issues that could cause the overfilling...failed water inlet valve, failed water level pressure switch, hole in pressure system air hose or air hose disconnection to name a few. Need to have professional evaluate, or it could happen again. Call home insurance if there are water damages to file a claim, and they can handle it from there usually.
Take the hose back off more rust and dirt came through because od the volume of water going throgh the pipe and hose. When you take it off this time run some water at full volume in a bucket to flush everything out.
Reclean the screen and you will be fine...
Turn off the hot water to the washer, remove the hose, look in the end of the hose for filter, or in the inlet to the valve.
If no filter, then prob could be low water pressure, or faulty inlet valve.
Please rate my solution.
If so, this is what I suspect. The filters in the inlet hoses on the back of the washer need cleaning. Remove the garden hose connectors, remove filter, clean, replace.
When filling with hot only you get a lot of pressure thru one hose. When you rinse, the best you can do pressure-wise is cold rinse -- but the cold water filter is going to be more clogged than the hot so it delivers less water.
When you use warm rinse, you get mediium pressure thru both lines, again less water than al hot on filling the machine.
1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses. 2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused) 3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose. 4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes. 5. Replace the inlet screens. 6. Re-fit the hose to the machine. 7. Turn on water supply valves. 8. re-try.
