The most common problem with a slow filling washing machine is a blocked filter
this is located inside the hose usually near the machine.
it this is not blocked
it may be a stuck valve, to test if this is the case connect the hot water and see if that fills quicker.
a short term fix would be to connect both hoses to cold if you can.
If your machine requires hot water to function it may not fill all the way because it will switch off if there is no hot water.
hope this helps.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would suspect the water inlet control valve may be malfunctioning- not closing (its default no power position).
Quick temporary fix, although tiresome, turn whichever tap, hot or cold, off when washing finished. You've probably already thought of that!
In the meantime I would suggest a service call is required ;-0(

When not in use, my washer begins to slowly fill with water.


you either have a very poor water pressure to the machine or the fill valve is not closing completely and will need to be replaced.

Fills on its own door open or closed


I would bet the water inlet valve is weeping. It may not seal shut every time. It could have a piece of rest stuck in it also. It's cheap and easy to replace. The part # AP3128776.
