Ipso BTT20WN slow hot water fill

    I have an Ipso toploader that fills very slow on hot.  Water trickles in.  It will eventually switch to warm after a few minutes.  Checked the hose, tap and changed the mixing valve.  Any ideas on what may be causing this?

    have you checked for screens on both ends of fill hose? Take hose off back of machine and run water in a bucket to check flow.

    Thanks.  Sometimes the most simple solutions are the most overlooked.

    Chris, if those are rust marks on the hose fitting, you might want to consider buying all brass hose fittings to avoid an eventual flood.

    We have a problem with a few of our screens loading up with a very fine sticky type material....I am thinking of using a larger mesh screen to let it flush thru.
