Slowly filling up with water...?

The water started slowly filling at first just on cold water. Now, even on hot, the water barely trickles. Takes two hours for the tub to fill. I thought I had out smarted it by hooking my cold water up in the hot water hose. Nope. Just prolonged the inevitable. Replacing whatever is wrong with the washer.

ANSWERS:

"Cause 1

Water Inlet Valve

The water inlet valve opens to allow water to enter the washing machine. If the water inlet valve is defective, the wash may fill slowly or not fill at all. The water inlet valve requires sufficient water pressure to function properly. First, check the water pressure to determine that it is adequate. If the water pressure is adequate, try cleaning the screens inside the water inlet valve hose connection ports. If the washer still fills slowly, replace the water inlet valve.

Cause 2

Low Water Pressure from House Supply

The home water pressure might be too low. The water inlet valve requires at least 20 psi to function properly. Check the water pressure to the valve to determine if it is sufficient.
