Depending on the model of the machine, it is most likley a cracked control head or split outlet elbow. Remove the covers and run the machine to locate the source of the leak. Ifit is the control head it will spray water from the top just behind the chemical inlet elbow.

If the washer is an energy efficient "water saver" it could be like mine. It NEVER lets in a lot of hot water. Switch the water temp to warm and see if it comes out faster. If it does the water will probably be colder then you want for washing. But that is the way new machines are being built.
If that didn't let the water in faster then it sounds like the hoses are clogged. There should be a small screen in one end of the hose. Get a toothbrush and scrub it clean. Then check for a screen on the inlet port of the washer itself. There may also be a screen in there. If so, scrub it clean.
Place the end of the hose in a sink or in the washer and see if water is coming from the hose. If not, that indicates water is not coming out of the faucet as it should. Try turning the faucet on and off several times in an attempt to loosen any deposits. If you still don't have water coming from the faucet in a good stream you will need to replace the faucet.
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.
There is an obstruction after the shut off to the hot water hose that feeds the washer. Shut off the hot water, disconnect the hot water hose from the washer, and hold the end in the washer tub. Open the hot water shut off. If now water comes out the problem is in the hose. Replace or clear obstruction. Make sure washer at hose end is in place before reconnecting to washer.
If how water flows, inspect the input hose connection to the washer. Some have a screen filter that my be clogged with sediment or other debris. Clean and try again.
If still no hot water, there is likely a problem with the hot water solenoid valve inside the washer itself. You'll have to remove and probably replace the valve or coil (or assembly).
Hydraulic oil? Is this a pressure washer? Pump should be half full of SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil. Engine should have 10W30 motor oil.
If you have a pressure washer ... and not water is coming out end of gun: Take all hoses off machine. Look at incoming water hose connection. The should be a filter washer. Clean or replace filter washer. Hook up water and turn on water. Water should come out other side of pump. Turn on power washer and see if water coming out of pump is pressurized. Now hook up pressure hose without gun. Turn on pressure washer and see if water comes out of hose and is pressurized. Finally, the gun may be bad. We used to replace guns when they went bad.
F20 = NO WATER DETECTED ENTERING MACHINE OR PRESSURE SWITCH TRIP NOT DETECTED. The pressure switch is not tripped after 6 minutes.
If there is no water in the unit: Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves. Verify inlet valve operation. If there is water in the unit: Verify drain pump operation. Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and properly connected to tub and pressure switch. 1. Verify there is not a siphon problem. 2. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. The machine will drain for 3 minutes before unlocking the door. 3. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 4. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure switch, drain pump and Central Control Unit (CCU). 5. Check all hoses for possible leaks. 6. Plug in washer or reconnect power 7. Verify pressure switch operation.
turn on your washer start programme while it is filling turn of power point if water still enters mchine you have a faulty water valve.if water stops there is a problem with the water level switch or hose that connects from outer bowl to pressure switch maybe perished or split.hope this helps you.
Your water is coming out into the washer even when you water supply is switched off at the pipe?
Disconnect the washer hose from the water pipe and see if the water
still comes out of the water pipe even when the water valve is shut off! If the answer is YES!
This is a plumbing malfunction. The valve on your water pipe is not closing completely! There is a washer in the water valve attached to the end of the valve stem that more than likely needs replacement.
And not a washer malfunction.
If I understand your explanation correctly this is the cause.
If this is not the problem then the washer has a water inlet that is stuck open.
But this dose not make sense if the external water valve is shut off there should not be water reaching the washer inlet faulty or not!
I believe I figured out the problem for you and you will be fine when the valve is fixed or the valve stem replaced! Bless You, ngafm

Have your husband disconnect the power and water lines, pull the washer out and tip it back so he can check the hose connections to the water drain pump in the bottom of the washer. That pump should have two hose connections. In older machines, it is entirely possible that a hose has either come loose or cracked. If the hoses appear fine, check the pump itself for possible cracks. If all looks well, check the hose clamps for tightness.
