AD says "Washer water comes in slow".......

To me, it's indicating the inlet screens are all clogged up. Which is of course an easy repair. But is there anything else that could be the cause of this problem that would make the repair more extensive? Would failing solenoids in the water valves be a contender for this issue? Just wondering....

I used to live in Palm Springs....

... and my money is on clogged inlet screens. There is a tremendous amount of sand in the water system. I used to make a point of once a year taking out my sink aerators, screen filters etc. just to get the sand out.
