After you have done what Jayeff said and it still doesn’t work, replace the 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.

UPDATE

I don’t have your specific model number but this video on replacing the valve may be your machine:

Hi @calldive5 ,

Have you checked the pressure out of the tap that the washer's water inlet hose is connected to?

Check the pressure out of the inlet hose by turning off the tap, disconnecting the hose from the washer , placing the end of hose in the sink and turning on the tap.

There usually is a filter in the end of the hose which may be clogged up and impeding the flow of water. Check to see if it is clear.

I have this same problem too. I took hoses off and they are fine & water pressure is good. But when you go to fill it the water that runs through the built in dispensar for the powder detergent located at front right corner flows just fine. then like it always does it alternates to come out from the top center of the washer, but instead of steady flow like I used to get and still do get from the dry detergent dispenser there's only 2 small streamers of h20 that come out unlike the the large stream that used to come out. Any ideas?

Thanks!
