Close your faucet valve & unscrew your hoses to check screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. Water shd be in good pressure at faucet. Refit, check for leaks. If this is not the problem change your inlet valve, it is easily done. Will tell u shortly where to get spares.

Hot water fills very slow(30 MIN OR MORE TO FILL) good water flow from spicket to washer, screens are clear. sewems to be something with the washer its self


Might be a bad inlet valve. To confirm, swap the hot and cold hoses to your washer so that the cold water feeds the hot water connection and the hot water feeds the cold water connection. Turn off both hot and cold water faucets. Set the washer for a warm water wash. Turn on the cold water faucet, and check the flow. Then turn off the cold water faucet, and turn on the hot water faucet and check the flow. If the cold water flow fill slowly, then the problem is with the inlet valve.

It an easy part to obtain from an appliance supply house. To install disconnect the hoses to the back of the machine, and remove the back panel to get access to the valve. Should only take a couple of minutes to remove and install. Hope this helps you.

The flow of the cold water seems to be restricted. The hot water pores into the tub. The cold trickles in. After disconnecting the cold hose, hot water back feeds out of the cold input side of the machine....

Washer fills only with hot water


Disconnect cold water hose from machine. Inspect the filter screen on the cold water connection. DO NOT REMOVE SCREEN. If full of debris, use a spray bottle with a hard spray to remove debris. If unable to remove or cold is still slow, replace valve.
