How to raise the water level on my LG washer


There is no need to raise the water level. all modern washers automatically add the amount of water needed to wash the amount of clothes that you put in, I could explain how, but it will put you to sleep. rest assured these machines pretty much look after themselves. I would be more interested to know why you think it needs more water, are you having rinsing issues? wash quality issues?

How to adjust very noisy inflow and low water levels


Two distinct problems

Noisy inflow - reduce the water pressure by close the water isolation valve next to the toilet. Or buy a low noise cistern float assembly like the Torbeck. I have used these and they are good.

Water level is down to adjustment. If you buy a new valve, you will also get instructions how to get the correct level. How, is specific to each valve, but is with a screw.

Needs service code 66


The pressure sensor is faulty and needs a new/good secondhand one
You can get one from an old dead board,
But it needs to be calibrated to that board.
To calibrate the new one set machine to fill to low water level,
The plastic hex with red on it needs to be turned up to raise & down to lower the water level.1/8inch of a turn will adjust water by 15 to 20mm.
66. (01000001) Pressure Transducer Error [Ptx Frequency > 90 kHz]
Note: this supersedes Fault code 65 from V41 Motor controller code onwards.
The Motor Control module has received signals from the water level sensor (Ptx)
above normal frequency values.
Primary Source: Motor Control module
Action: Replace Motor Control module

WM0642HW LG water level is too low.I want to get more water in it. Any suggestions? Is there any way i can override sensors so i can get about 5 gallons more water in it?


YES YOU CAN RAISE THE WATER LEVEL ! Raise the top of the washer lid by removing the 4 dispenser screws. Push side of dispenser tabs to drop dispenser down off from lid. Using an opener or flat item, insert into lid front edge to depress inward the metal top hold down clip. Do the left side first then the right side. Raise the lid.You'll see the water level sensor switch on the inner cabinet upper right side. You will see a set screw for a phillips screwdriver. Slowly turn that screw CLOCKWISE about a quarter turn. With washer cylinder emply,and holding detergent dispenser assembly upright so it won't spill water into inner cabinet area, start the washer.You will see the water level rise to a higher set point than just to the edge of the gray cylinder baffels.I have set mine to fill to the edge of the rubber door seal. I wouldn't go any higher than that. I see no need for the water level going over onto the glass window area.Ever since i raised the water level so my clothing tumbles in water instead of wicking up water as before and only becomming fully saturated nearing the end of the wash segment. The new adjustment has ended all of the complaints i had earlier about this washer not cleaning or rinsing well. My laundry is clean the first time around and all my washer needed was a few more gallons of water to work with. LG themselves were of NO help when i called dozens of times before .They just gave me the run around and never a straight answer about the water level except nothing could be done, it was based on laundry load weight, too bad so sad. That was TOTALLY UNTRUE! I found out how to adjust it by another owner of the LG WM0642HW posting this info on how to raise the water level, and how to go about doing it.I've not had to do a single rewash since turning that water level switch higher.Honestly!

Water level in bowl too low


Hello, W/D, toilet expert, here.
The tank has a water level line cast into the inside back of the tank. That's where your water level should ideally be. Now, there are a variety of water level controllers, so we'll hit on the major ones. But first, a little nomenclature, so you'll know what it isn't. If you remove the tank lid, you'll notice a tube in the middle that's open, and usually has a smaller tube inserted or attached to it. This is the overflow tube, and feeds water to the rim of the bowl. At the base of the overflow tube is the flapper, and it controls the majority of the flushing power. The flapper is operated by a chain connected to the flush lever. When the flapper is raised (flushed), the water level drops. On the left side of the tank is the water fill valve, The water coming from the house via the tubing under the tank goes into this valve assembly. Part of this assembly is the all important float.
Older ones have the float at the end of an arm, As the water level falls, the float falls and operates the water inlet valve at the other end of the float, on the water fill valve. As the level rises in the tank, the float rises with the level and shuts off the water when it gets to it's pre-set level. This type is adjusted by positioning the float either by the screw adjustments on each end of the float arm, or sometimes by bending the float arm.
The newer types have the float either built in, or the float surrounds the fill valve. The one that surrounds the fill valve looks like a very fat donut and is very similar to the older float arm type, just more compact. The water level is set by adjusting the linkage between the float and the water valve at the top of the water control valve.
The newer newer type has all of the floating mechanism built in. But cleverly, there is an external adjustment for raising and lowering the water level. On the side of the tube, there are slots and raised dots on the lower tube. The upper tube has slots on the inside of it. There is a white locking tab between the two tubes. Here's how this one works: (Turn your water off first for adjusting this type). The tube is in two parts, an upper and lower tube. They are held in place by the locking tab, and by the slots cast into the two tubes (they intermesh) To adjust this type, you have to raise the lower portion of the locking tab to raise it off of the locking dots, and than revove it. Then, you push down slightly and twist the upper section to unlock it. Set the level higher or lower, twist the two parts back together, and reinsert the locking tab. The aim is to set the water level at the level mark on the tank. This type can be tricky; you'd do best to turn the water off to adjust this type, and turn it back on once you have locked it back in place.
Best regards, W/D

Low water level in toilet bowl


Sorry, but there is no way to raise the water level in the bowl of a low-flow toilet. The water level is determined by the height of the internal trap, usually visible from the side of the toilet (that squiggly little bend). If the toilet is not flushing satisfactorily, you can make adjustments to the water level in the tank and adjust the closing of the flapper. If the problem is odors, flush half way through your business or turn on the bathroom exhaust fan. If you found this answer helpful, please don't forget to rate it.

The water level in the bowl is limited by the height of the internal trap down stream from the bowl. There is no adjustment possible. If the problem is odors, you can either flush more often, turn on the exhaust fan, or buy a different brand or model of toilet.
