Default Lousy Water Pressure On Clothes Washer...

We have good water pressure all through the house, but the water just trickles out when loading the clothes washer. I've checked to make sure that the incoming water hose isn't kinked & the faucet is fully on. Anyone have any ideas what else to look for??

Mack, sometimes there's an inline screen in the water hose end(s). Could have some junk in it.

There should be a mesh filter on both input lines going into the washer.
Try turning off the water to the washer, disconnect both hoses and inspect/clean the filters. Good luck!

Bingo! As they say at the church hall. Many thanks to you both. While there were no in-hose screens, there were screens at the water intake on the washer and they were clogged with gunk. Gunk out..water runs fast & fine. Work done. Thanks again!
