Water not filling very quick
Lets do the easy - inexpensive check / repair first:
Shut off the water supply at the input to the hose. Turn the washer on to warm to allow water pressure in the hose to be relieved. It should take only a second or two to do this.
Shut the machine OFF.
Mark the hoses H and C (or other marking you choose) on both ends to match Hot and Cold water.
Disconnect the hoses completely.
Check for and remove any sediment (and other debris) caught in the screen mesh-type filter in the end of the hose and at the hot and cold water input connections on the washer.
Check condition of the rubber washers in the hose ends and replace as needed.
Connect the hose to the supply side and hold the other ends into the washer tub or other wide mouth container or bucket.
Turn the water ON and then OFF momentarily to flush the hoses while holding the hose ends. You should see a high volume stream from both hoses.
Reconnect to the washer side connection (after making sure the washers are still in place).
Tighten hoses to hand tight - plus an additional 1/4 turn.
Turn on the water supply
Make an initial check for leaks and drips at both ends of the hose. Correct as needed. Check again after 5 minutes. Correct as needed and repeat this step.
At this point, the flow of water to the washer has either been verified or corrected. If there is still an issue with water flow it is likely a problem with the valve inside the washer (has the hose connections sticking out the back of the machine. You can attempt to replace it yourself or turn the problem over to an appliance repairer.
