    The first thing I would check would be to make sure the faucet is turned on full. Sometimes it gets turned if someone else is using the washer. The second is to check the hose that runs from the faucet to the back of the washer to make sure there is not a kink in it. Then I'd look for calcium build up from hard water.

    They put this little screen filter where the hose attaches to the washer. Shut the water off and you may need pliers to remove the hose at the washer. Some water will drip out. There you will find the filter screen, likely filled with what looks like sand. Clean that out, tighten the hose back on, and turn the water back on. Good as new.
