If you mean the water supply hoses, usually the intake screen becomes plugged with debris from the house water supply. The screen is removable with a small screwdriver or other small tool. Sometimes it helps to just reverse the ends of the hose and place the washer end into a sink or bucket. There should be a screen on each washer entrance connection that can get plugged as well. Hope this helps!

How to clean drain hose

Drain hose very rarely plug up. you can remove the hose and check it but I would bet the relay that opens the drain on the washer is not working correctly. If you have have a bit of tool skills they are relatively easy to replace but check the hose first.

"E20" is indicates a drain problem.
- Set towels under the hoses in the rear of the washer and disconnect the drain hose. Clean the drain hose screen and look for debris where the hose connects to the washer. Clean as necessary.
- Remove the front access panel from the washing machine and locate the drain pump. Remove the screw clamp and clean out any debris that may be causing an obstruction.
- Clean the sump hose that is connected to the trap cup and reassemble. Close the front access panel.
- Restore power and press "Drain/Spin" to remove any remaining water from the tub.

Cold water fills very slowly

Turn off the water, remove the cold water hose at the back of the washer ... inside you will find a hose washer with a screen on it - remove and replace it. I believe you will discover the screen is clogged. While you have the hose disconnected, run some water into a bucket from the hose to clean it as well.

1999 ford focus estate diesel.Windscreen washer bottle has black mildew in do i get it out as it blocks the washer jets.

Remove the windshield washer reservoir and give it a good cleaning with a mixture of 1 part bleach and 3 parts water. You may be able to clean it without removing the reservoir by flushing it throughly and the cleaning it while still on the vehicle with the bleach mix. After it is throughly cleaned put a bleach mix in the reservoir and disconnect the hoses from the spray nozzles and run the washer until the hoses are clean. Use a needle to clean out the nozzles, and the connect the hoses and run the washer until the nozzles are clear. Remove the bleach mix and then fill the reservoir with a commercial windshield washer fluid. I recommend Rain X.

Water is running slow in machine

This is usually caused be either a clogged hose screen (most likely) or low water pressure. To check the hose screen shut off the water to the washer and then unscrew the washer hoses at the washer. You should see wire screen filters either on the end of the hose or in the washer where the hose was attached. Usually the hot water one gets clogged with rust. They don't usually come out so try cleaning it with a stiff brush. Once cleaned connect the hoses, turn on the water and see if it is better.

Turn water cold water valve off by hose. Unscrew hose from both ends. Clean out filter inside the end of the washer water valve where the hose was connected to the machine. Check to make sure there is not a screened washer in either end of the hose which may also need cleaning. Reattach and turn water back on.
