Put the fill hoses inside of the washer tub, and open the water hot and cold water faucets. If the water flows ok, then you could check the water valve filters.
Water valve filters: While you have the fill hose disconnected, you could check the water valve filters. These filters are located inside of the water valve, and could be removed by using s small flat screwdriver.
