First check that the water is actually all the way on. Then check the little screen at the hose connection. They quite often get plugged with debris, and scale build up.

If that is not the problem then you will need to change out your inlet solinoid. If you will provide me the make and model number iof your unit I will see if I can locate that part for you.
