I was using the same type hose before. The only difference is the extra two foot length. If anything, the water passes through the hoses faster now. The faucets are fairly new and the water flows freely through them and through the hoses. The electronic water valve on the washer was working fine before I switched the hoses and moved it over a couple of feet. The intake valves look clean. The screens are not clogged. The only thing I can think of is perhaps I turned on the water too fast. Do the electronic intake valves have a protection mode where they lock up if the water hits it too fast? If so, how do you reset it?
