You might not have enough water pressure. there is a screan in the hot and cold sides of the hoses in the back of the washing machine.unhook the hose on the washer side and pull the screan out and clean or replace. make sure you shut the water off first

What causes washing machine to fill slow?

Most likely cause is the incoming filter screens. Where your two hoses fit on the machine the inlets on the washer have small fine stainless steel filters. You can pull these out with fine tweezers or thin pointed knife, and clean them. ( New ones are cheap if you crunch them) I clean them with an old toothbrush.

Why is the cold water so slow to fill washing machine?

You probably have a clogged filter. The filter is a made of wire mesh that is molded to the approximate dimensions of a thimble. Becuase the wire mesh of the filter is very fine, it is difficult to clean. Order a replacement from the manufacturer. Be sure to shut the water off and remove the hose. There are sometimes small screen filters on the hoses, and always a screen filter on the infeed to the washer where the hose connects. Check the filter. Even a little bit of build-up can cause severe issues with fill time. My washer was taking close to an hour to fill on cold, and now fills in 2 minutes since changing the filter.

Basement shower fills up when washing machine empties?

You have a slow drain (constriction) somewhere after the shower drain and the washing machine drain join. Hence, the washing machine is feeding water into the "system" faster than the constriction allows it to flow to the sewer or septic, or whatever its destination is. Does this only happen when the mashing machine runs ? Remember, your clothes washer can dump more water into the pipe than just about anything else in your house, including your toilet. The toilet, though it flushed quickly, only uses between 1.3 and about 6 gallons per flush, most recent toilets are in the 1.6 range, by law. Your washing machine on the other hand, it can empty the whole wash tun in about what, 30 to 60 seconds ? Did this always happen, or has gotten worse recently ? If it has been this way for years, it could be that the final drain is undersized, or possibly some semi-permanent obstruction in the drain from your house. If it getting slowly worse, you need to have someone figure out what is blocking the pipe that far down, and get it cleared. Eventually, if it continues to get worse, it will overflow your shower basin.
