It probably would help to know brand of washer maybe even RV type and manufacturer.

I would start with the easy stuff like disconnecting the input hoses and testing to see if water is getting to the washer.

Same situation w my Whirlpool washer tjis spring after dewinterizing. Had to replace both H & C inlet valves.
Appliancepartspros.com was a great source.

I took the old valves apart and could not find an obvious reason why they would not work???

Trying to decide if I should try winterizing inlets w compressed air and AF in the tub for the drain pump.

1) Make sure you have water pressure and both valves are turned on.
2) Unplug the washer for a couple of minutes, (1-2)
3) Open the washer door and add about 1-1/2 gallons of water to the washer. Then run the rinse/spin cycle. The antifreeze foams when you try to drain the washer, (in water pump). This aeration triggers an internal fault code which prevents the washer fill valves from opening.
