After making sure the lines and screens are clean, and there is good water flow thru the hoses to the valves, and there is power to the valve solenoids, (which can be detected by setting to fill and pulling out on the start knob), and hearing a "click" at the valve, you can summize that the valve is weak, or partially blocked internally.
Replace the valve by unpluging the power cord to the machine. Remove the hoses. Remove the screw that attaches the valve mounting plate. Pull the plate and valve out and remove the screw that attaches the valve to the plate. Unplug the wires from the solenoides,[IMPORTANT] noting which wires go to each valve. Remove the rubber hose on top of the valve by squeezing the hose clamp with a pair of pliers, and sliding the clamp up the hose. Now you can pull the hose off. Install the new valve in the reverse order.
