Washing machine is most likely clogged screens. Shut off the valves, remove the hoses from the washer and clean the inlets.

The valve probably has whatever is clogging your washer lodged inside of the cartridge or stem. Depending on what brand it is, disassembly can be difficult.

The supply valves turned on? Has any work been done where the valves were closed?
Both lines simply started to trickle over night or what?
