Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today. Around 15psi minimum is needed, washer will usually give you a slow fill error if water is not entering the unit at a fast enough rate, if the machine is filling and washing but not completing the rinse cycle, there is something else wrong other than water pressure alone. It may be one side of the valve is bad most likely the cold valve because all rinse cycles are cold water only, so if its not filling it the rinse it could be the valve. If the valve is putting water in but not completeing the cycle then check the drain pump for blockage, if it has a pump clean out trap, remove it and clean it out, a drain pump that is not operating properly due to filter stoppage with affect that part of the cycle. Does the washer drain and spin out on the drain and spin only cycle? If so you most likely just have a water inlet valve issue. If not then you have pump, motor control or motor issue.******************************************************************************* We are on the honor system here.
