Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry & Laundry Rooms, says:

It could be a bad water level pressure valve in your washer or a low pressure leak because of a silt buildup in the water valve filter screen. It could be that your brother in law did not get the filters completely clean.

Turn your water off. Disconnect the water hoses. Look for silt inside the water valve opening. If present, clean it out and rehook water hoses. If no silt is present, replace your water valve.

You can find operating and repair manuals here.

Good luck!
