Yes there is a level sensor usually a thin plastic pipe feeds water to a diaphram type pressure switch. It may be cutting out to soon.

How do I increase water level in my wfxd8400uc?


I get this complaint a lot from home owners , I take it you have just got your first front loader washer , and you don't think it adds enough water to wash anything , this is the water saving feature of front loaders
but a simple test I tell most folks to do if they think there water level sensor is not working right
set washer to auto load sense on water level , normal wash cold water, permapress add nothing to drum completely empty! no soap unless you have a auto soap dispenser then it wont start to you add some and close door

start cycle wait till fill is complete just as it goes to agitate stop cycle (plug can be pulled for this if buttons have locked out )and open door see if water level is two fingers wigth under door seal , if its close your ok if it's a long way off then contact a repair department to look at auto sense water level

Tip

Top-Load vs Front-Load Washers - Things to Consider


The traditional top-loader is more comfortable to load and cheaper to buy. High efficiency washers in top-load or front-load models are much more expensive but are water and energy savers, with front-load models having the best energy ratings. Front-load washers have a better spin which leaves less water in the load causing less drying time. High-efficiency models require low-sudsing HE detergent due to low water levels and they require a little more care. They also have more cycles and convenience features than traditional top-loaders. Warranty periods generally are a year regardless of washer style.

Code f35 and sud on washer machine/whirlpool duet front loader


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

Whirlpool fron loader washer leaks at the door


The water should be able to come up to the door level without leaking. Chances are you have build up on the bottom side of the glass on your door. If so take a razor blade and scrape the build up off. Your door will quit leaking.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9400 Water Level Seems Too Low


Scott,
Believe me, if the water level were ever several inches above the glass, you'd know about it 'cause it would flood your laundry room. Seriously. See? That rubber door boot/seal is not water tight (like a submarine) when the door is closed and locked, it's water "resistant".

Front loaders often appear as though the level is low, but they are designed this way. The clothing actually tumbles through the water as opposed to soaking in water like a top loader.

All of that to say that you have nothing to be concerned about. Your water level is fine.

SG

p.s. If your water level switch had failed, as you suspected, the water level would be too high and leak out the door.

Washer water level low, clothes come out dry !!


This is the water saver feature and the only solution may be to put it on the maximum wash cycle to get clothes really clean.
These washers normally get the clothes almost dry.
