The mechanical internals of both the hot and cold water inlet valves include a rubber (or similar material) diaphram. After a period of time the diaphram deteriorates and punctures or tears. When this happens the water inlet valve ceases to function correctly and the water just dribbles in and may take hours to fill the machine.
The cure is to replace the water valve that is displaying this problem. The presumtion is that you are already sure there is no filter blockage at filters that may be in the hose ends at the supply tap end and / or at the machine end.and that the plastic pull out filters that are in the water inlet valve (accessible after disconnecting the hoses) are also clean.

MAchine fills slowly. Have cleaned the screens.


Check the solenoid. You can swap the hot and cold water hoses and set the wash for hot but cold will come out. Then you can see if the flow is better. If it is the cold valve isn't opening all the way.

I had a similar problem - unscrew the water hose feed lines from the back of the machine and clear out any sedimentation build up from the filters. You can use a turkey baster to siphon off. If filters are clear you may have to replace watervalve. Look at vitual repairman,com as to how to remove the back. Replacement cost about $26.

Washer fills only with hot water


Disconnect cold water hose from machine. Inspect the filter screen on the cold water connection. DO NOT REMOVE SCREEN. If full of debris, use a spray bottle with a hard spray to remove debris. If unable to remove or cold is still slow, replace valve.

check for kinks in the pipe or restrictions to the flow in the pipes before it gets to the washer, if all is ok then check the filter on the outside of the water connector on the machine for dirt

if you confirm all is clear and the flow of water is not the problem before the machine, replace the cold water solenoid
