If the problem with your Performa washer is that is not filling properly. In other words it takes a long time for the washer to fill to the selected level because the water just trickles in.
The problem could be that the water valve screens or filters are clogged with sediment.
To check the water valve screens, do the following.
1. Turn the water faucets off
2. Remove the fill hoses from the water valve
3. Remove the screens from inside of the water valve
4. Clean them if you can, or replace them with new screens
That should resolve the problem with the water just trickling in.
