You need to specify the format in many cases as there are a variety of
hash formats that generate visually similar hash types. Assuming DVWA
I'm guessing it's MD5 then use that format:

C:\CLI Tools\John>cat test

C:\CLI Tools\John>john.exe --format=raw-md5 test
Loaded 1 password hash (Raw MD5 [128/128 SSE2 intrinsics 12x])
hello            (user)
guesses: 1  time: 0:00:00:00 DONE (Thu Nov 22 20:36:50 2012)  c/s: 27548
 trying: money - hello
