My machine is taking so long to get full with water, so with a good water flow from the pipe the machine has something that does not let to fill the washer quickly as usual. What I have to do, What valves or something else i need to check.
My washing machine is LG fuzzylogic 8kg model WF-T8059TP

Re: Problem with the flow rate to the entrance valves
Turn the water valves off and then unhook the water supply hoses from the machine. Look into the hole the hoses were connected to. Use a pliers to grab the tab on the filter screen(s) and pull them out of the water fill valve(s). Clean, reinstall, and reconnect hoses and turn valves back on. Most often you will find that the cold water supply is the culprit.

The most likely fault is the water inlet valves are blocked or only partially opening , pull off the pipe coming from the inlet valves and put the machine into cycle the flow of water should be full of the pipe and at mains water pressure, if this is not the case replace the inlet valves. Thanks tk
Your machine probably has several temperature settings, right?
So-- when you set it for COLD-- it fills at the normal rate?
When you set it for WARM-- does only COLD water still only come in?
And if you set it for HOT-- Nothing comes in?-- correct?
Now lets get to the pipes in the back: Is there a Laundry sink, or a hose or something nearby, so you can be sure you have HOT water to the Washing Machine?-- Is the Hot water flowing good and strong nearby the WASHING MACHINE-- WHEN YOU TEST IT?
And the Valve is not shut at the Washing machine-- (Hot shut, but cold open?)
If you are sure that you have a good supply of HOT water to the machine,--- If you have tested that you actually have a good flow, -- say with the Hose removed, and you run the Hot water into the machine (by-passing the internal control valve!!)-- Then it sounds like: Either the control is not telling the internal solenoid valve to open-- or the valve needs to be replaced.
Do you want to attempt this repair-- or do you want to call for help at this point?
Let me know what you find-- and how far you want to go by yourself.
Im assuming you have 2 water valves, A hot water valve and a Cold water valve. I suspect the inline filters are blocked. Switch the water tap/s off and unscrew the pipes off the machine side. Inside the valve entrance, there should be a sieve. using long nose pliers, pull both out and clean properly. Reinstall in same orser. Test now.
Check the water inlet pipe is not kinked or blocked. If you can turn water off, remove pipe, place pipe end in bucket, turn water back on, check flow from the pipe to eliminate it. If not that, then the water control valve in the machine might want replacing. By the way, those horrible "quick connectors" that are sometimes used to screw on to the water pipes, can corrode over the internal hole, and prevent good flow, so replace with a proper washing machine valve, and TEE connector.
Most likely cause is reduced water flow to machine. This could be because the filter on the inlet valve is partialy blocked or because the inlet valve is faulty. Check the valves where the hoses screw onto the rear of the machine. You may also like to check the flow rate of the cold or hot water. Cold water inlet valve problems are not unusual for F&P washers. They can sound OK, but have weak flow..Good luck....Please take a moment and rate this answer.........Nomess
Check the water shut off valves behind your washer. Make sure they are full open (turn counter-clockwise).
Turn the shut off valve off (full clockwise). Disconnect the hose and try running it into a bucket from the valve to make sure you have good water flow.
Check the hose from the shut off valve and make sure it's not kinked stopping water flow.
Turn shut off valve off completely...disconnect hose and look at the end that attaches to the washer. Is the metal screen clogged? Look at the water inlet on the washer where hose attaches and make sure there are no obstructions.
Suspect low water flow rate ., check flow rate from main sink tap , when turned on full this should be pretty fierce. Put machine on normal cool wash , when it is taking in cold water through the soap drawer , pull out the drawer a little , the water flow rate should be allmost the same as the tap , if not investigate , fill pipes at rear etc..
Your water inlet valve is not closing causing your water to over flow. Also check your flow switch to make sure that it is still good also. The inlet valve and flow can be found behind the knobs up top. If you are satisfied please rate
Check first the filters on the inlet water line (both sides).
Then, if problem still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)).
If it doesn't work,test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work, it should be replaced.
Check the water inlet valve(An electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine).
Any obstruction in the valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!
Good luck !
