Clothes washer noise

Bought a new washer for a new house. When the cold water is running into the washer, there is a high screeching noise. Is this normal? Does not happen with hot water.

Took the hose off the washer - no blockage.

Any other ideas? I have extremely strong water pressure. Could it just be that the hose can't handle it and makes that noise?

That could very well be the problem. Not sure what you can do to restrict the pressure other than close the water valve slowly as its filling to see if noise goes away as you reduce the water
