Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

First thing you will want to do if you have not done so already is remove the fill hoses (water hoses attached to the washer) and make sure the screens on the water inlet valve of the washer are not plugged up with trash or sediment, if those are clear and the water pressure coming in to the washer from your home is sufficient then you will need to replace the water inlet valve on the washer, if you give me the model number I will be glad to give you the replacement part number and instructions to replace it. The model number is ***** on the door/lid frame of the washer you will see a tag that has the model number and serial number listed. Thanks, ***** ***** meantime please read below, thanks.
