All washers built in the last 6 - 10 years are factory set and if you are talking about changing it to modify it , you wont be able to.If the level has changed and it wont go as high as it used to, replace the level switch. Please Rate this !!!

Users manual for admiral atw4475xq


ATW4475XQ - Admirial Water Saver washer - Adjust Rinse cycle water level
The rinse cycle water level can be adjusted. Unplug the machines power.
You can youtube a video on how to remove the top control panel, its just 2 screws on the back of it,
phillips head. Swing the control panel up, and find something to support it so you have both hands free.
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYn0_qCFdec)
You'll see a clear plastic tube coming up from the back rear like 3/8 in diameter, to a "T"
connection. The one that goes to the left, thats the wash water level switch it connects to. The one you
can adjust, large, medium, small, from the front of the panel . The other off the T goes to the rinse
water level switch. There is not a knob to adjust it. But if you look at the bottom of the lever
mechanism/cam pickups of both switchs, you will see that they are the same. Rotate the wash load size
(knob on outside of control panel) from small to large, back to small, notice how the mechanism changes?
The rinse water level swtich acts the same way, although it is only a 2 position switch, small and
large. Once you watch the wash level mechanism move from rotating it back and forth a few times, you
should be able to see how to rotate that same mechanism on the rinse switch 1 click. It will click into
place, there are only 2 positions as I said and from the factory its in small, so once it "clicks in"
dont go any further. I did mine with a very small screw driver without removing the rinse switch.
Once you get that hidden switch turned to the other position, put it back together, fire it up and now
your rinse is the large level, all the time.
NOTE: There is a white plunger out of the end of each switch with a screw located in place. Dont mess
with the screw or that plunger. As you adjust the lever mechanism/cam this adjusts the amount of that
plunger sticking out, which changes the pressure pickup for water level.

There does not seem to be enough water in machine to wash with


This problem could have a number of different causes. Unless it is a machine specifically designed to operate at reduces water levels, the likely cause is that the sensor that determines how much the machine fills up is somewhat blocked or going bad. The blockage would prevent accurate sensing of the water level. See the explanation below:
The level sensor uses a pressure switch to detect the water level in the tub.
washer-level-switch.jpg
Water level control switch
This switch controls how high the tub fills with water.
washer-level-hose.jpg
Water level control switch plumbing
The big end of the hose connects to the bottom of the tub, while the small end connects to the switch. As the water level in the tub rises, water rises in the hose also; but the air in the hose is trapped, so as the water rises, the air is compressed.
washer-level-switch-open.jpg
Inside the water level control switch
Inside the housing of this switch is a little piston. The pressure in the hose pushes the piston up. When it is raised far enough, it pops up and closes an electrical contact. This set point, where the contact is lost, is adjustable, and in the picture you can see the cam mechanism that is connected to the adjuster knob on the control panel of the washer. As the cam turns, it presses a spring against the cylinder, making it harder for the cylinder to pop up. This means that the water level will have to rise some more before the pressure in the hose will be high enough to trigger the switch.

How to adjust fill level on Frigidaire GLWS1233AS2 washeer


There is not an adjustment on the water level, there is only the settings on the switch. If you are having a problem with overfilling, you will need to change the water select switch(water diaphram). The only other thing it could be is the water select switch hose. If it pops off you will get overfilling. This is located under the control panel.

Electrolux EW1045F, water filling stops at half level, not full


The pressure tube from the bowl could be obstructed. You will have to remove the tueb from the pressure switch and blow through it to see if it's not blocked firstly.

remove the left and right edge trims on the control panel
remove the phillips screws under the edge trims
raise control panel ~1 inch and flip over backwards.
  • ensure air tube is attached( water level sensor operates off air tube from bottom of drum to control body, (bottom is not loose or there would be water all over the floor))
  • Blow any water out of the air tube, it should be empty when the washer is empty, water remaining in the tube messes up the pressure sensing(usually makes water level lower so doubt this is the fault)
  • ensure wires are connected to control body.
Kenmore pressure switches are adjustable, the adjustment is hidden.
An internal spring stretches over time and does not react properly.
to test whether just the adjustment is required,

  1. remove the water level knob from the front side of console
  2. depress the lock tab at the right side of water level sensor body where it contacts the back side of the console and rotate counter clockwise 45degrees
  3. withdraw water level sensor body
  4. adjacent to shaft for the knob is 1/8inch bolt head, turn clockwise to raise, counter clockwise to lower water level.
  5. washer can be operated with the console open and the level body removed just dont shock yourself on the cable connectors
  6. test, adjust, test adjust. (water level switch may need to be flicked hi-med & back to test adjustment
  7. if no effect replace water level sensor body
The water level switch body contains a small spring that is not really up to the job and stretches over years,
do this repair, on call, no parts, takes 15 minutes,, 3-4 times a month

My kenmore top load washer wont stop filling....it flooded the house


Continious filling is usually 1 of 3 problems. 1 - a bad water level switch. or 2 - a bad water valve or 3 - your drain hose is pushed too far down into the wall (it should only go in about 6 " so it doesn't siphon the water right back out). The easiest way to tell which it is is to start filling the washer and then unplug it. If the water continous to flow, bad valve. If it stops a bad water level switch. Kenmore have 3 main ways to get to the water level switch. 1 - there are 2 plastic caps on either end on the front of the console (the parts where all the knobs and dials are) Pop these off and there are 2 phillips screws underneath. 2 - On the back of the console where it meets the top of the machine are 2 phillips screws. 3 - there are 2 clips under the console. Insert a putty knife between the console and the top of the washer in the front to pop the clips.
