The washer is connected to both cold and hot water lines. Check them frequently. Start with the joints and fix a leak if you find it. Be sure to check both ends of the water lines. Clean or replace the filters once in a while. A blocked filter will slow the water flow into the washing machine, and may cause some malfunctions. This problem is worse in areas with hard water. Inspect the shut off valve by looking for drips into the washing machine while it is not in use. If you detect a leak, replace the valve.
