Although you have not shared the make, model, and year, I will give it a try anyway.
Start by turning off the water at the faucets for the washer.
Then unhook the hose ( or both of them) and attach a garden hose to the faucet, and run the hose outside, or if that is not possible, run the hose to a sink or a shower or a tub, for the drain.
Turn on the water faucet and see if you get good pressure through the water hose.
If you do, then examine the black hoses from the faucets to the washer.
Often these have a tiny wire mesh filters inside the end or ends of them to filter the incoming water.
These can plug up with sediment, and you will need to clean them.
If they are clear, then examine the attachment on the back of the washer, where the hoses go.
These can also have tiny wire mesh filters inside, that can plug up with sediment.
Those screens can be removed and cleaned.
God bless your efforts.

Water will not shut off automatically. constant trickle. water turned off at main

You only have to change the water inlet valve of your washer. Actually it is quite easy; you have to search this site (fixya) for sites that sell spares, quoting your model and make. Make sure you dismantle the valve set and reset accordingly, note down. The spare usually comes with instructions.
If helped pl click so.

Only a trickle of hot water is coming out of my faucet. I tried to flush the tank, but only a trickle continues to come out of the I not doing something right?
The link above gives a list of reasons for the decreased water pressure at your faucet.

As for draining the tank, it sounds like it's clogged with sediment.

To open a clogged water heater:
Connect a washing-machine-hose to water heater drain valve.
Connect garden-hose to outdoor spigot, and to washing-machine-hose.
Turn on outdoor spigot for 10 seconds and it will open the clogged valve.

Toto flapper seems ok but toilet keeps slow trickle into the bowl

The water inlet valve should close completely and stop water from coming into the tank before the water level reaches the "small tube." (This is the overflow tube.)

There may be an o-ring or rubber gasket inside the valve that can be replaced. If not, you would have to replace the water inlet valve.

Trickling water noise coming from the bottom of the fridge.

It may be nothing to be concerned about. The water produced during the defrost cycle drains into a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. This water is then evaporated by heat from the refrigerant coils.

You may be hearing this water dripping into the pan from the tubing that carries it from the inside of the refrigerator.

Water comes out of the water dispenser in a trickle. Side by side model, icemaker in the door. Water filter was just replaced; water was only coming out in a trickle before replacement. Model 106.57033602

Sounds like the solinoid valve in the back of the fridge is not closing all the way.usually located at the the bottem right. replace the valve. It will have a 1/4 inch plastic hose line attached to it. shut off the water source first, then remove the valve, be sure to write down the model and serial number before you go to a appliance shop.

Water just trickles out

Some of the new units have stops installed on the valve itself. Make sure they are open.

Whirlpool washer approximately 2 1/2 year old

The screen at the cold water inlet is clogged. Cut off the cold water line and unscrew the line to the washer at the washer. Use a flathead screwdriver and pry out the metal screen that is visible Wash it out in a sink and re-install it. Re-attach the water line,turn it on and your'e good to go. If not you will need a new water inlet valve. These are the only things that can cause your problem unless there is a problem with your cold water supply pressure. Good Luck!!!!!
