I unhooked the water lines from the washer, after turning them off.

Then turned them on, and water came out but suddenly stopped on both hot and cold. Now when I hook them back up to the Washer I get no water coming out at all, and unsure what I can do to get the water coming out again. It's almost like their is air in the line, but not sure. Water works fine althroughout the house, except for lines going to the Washer? Any ideas how to get this SOB working again?

There is a SS braid hose that HD sells have has a high flow preventer in them. A well know brand, IIRC either Watts or Fluidmaster.

To reset them you have to shut off the water and then unscrew them to release the pressure.

I had one for small under the counter water softener for supplying an expresso machine.

Filling the empty WS tank it tripped and I immediately returned it and go a plain one.

after trial and error, I finally looked closely at the hoses themselves.. the hoses only allowed 2.5 gallon per min flow rate, and the water pressure was trippin' the high flow preventor.. I just got some regular hoses and now the washter fills up 10x faster... I never knew that was the kind of hose I originally bought. Thanks for getting back to me..
