Question about Washing Machines
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.

Hi, turn the cold water valve off at the washer. Unscrew the hose to the washer and check the inlet screen for a blockage. It could be plugged with hard water deposits. If its clean, before you reconnect the hose, turn the faucet on with something to catch the water in front of it, just to see if there is water to the faucet.Hopefully the screen was plugged. If you have water pressure and no blockage, then you may have a pump problem.These steps may save you some cash. Best of Luck,
