Three areas that can cause low flow
1) the intake on the pool, if you are using the pool sweep basket feature, then undo the connection at the pool wall and you will find that the wall filter is plugs with fin bug particles that can not make it past the wall screen. Clean and replace the hose to the wall.
2) the filter is clogged and dirty, clean the filter clean the filter compartment and replace,
3) you have an air leak allowing air to enter the pump system causing air to restrict the flow of water. Check the hose connection for leakage, check to make sure the bleeder valves are not loose or over tightened, as both will cause an air leak.
Hi Fred. Turn off the water and clean the water valve inlet screens inside the water valve.
-Remove the hose connection to the washer.
-Use a knife blade at the outer edge of the screen and pull it out.
-Wash the screens under slow running water rubbing it with your fingers.
CHECK hose water flow into a bucket by turning on each hose. Slow flow= plumbing problem
Good flow = Connect hoses to washer
Before you turn on the water check the wall connection end of the hoses. Sometimes there are hose screens there also. If there are screens in the wall connection end of the hose remove the screens and wash them.
Try replacing the water Filter also remove the airator on the end of the faucet and see if water comes out all the time. If it does clean the air rater by washing the sand out of it to do this flush it out in the revers direction of the screen. You may have to use a tooth pick to clean out the holes to allow water to flow. Also try hot watr side to see if it flows out there at all, if it does not then you need a new filter or you need a new screen on the air rater on the end of the faucet.
If there is a filter on the unit, change it. If not, then sounds like the screen is clogging up. You will need to pull the unit out and remove the water supply line and take off the adaptor to access the filter screen and clean it...
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 where 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.
