Turn off water, remove hoses from back of washer check the screens to see if they are full of sedimant.if they are just clean them out. make sure you don't get tempted to leave them out. if there is sedimant in your system it will get into your valve and cause it to stay open and cause a flood.
sometimes there are also screens in the hoses at the valves near the wall

Water capacity kawe860w


I don't have the number for you, but I can offer a method for measuring it. First, the next time you do laundry, set the water level switch to where you will use it for the dyeing task. With the lid open, but with no clothes inside, turn on the washing machine. Observe and note the level of the water when the machine stops filling. Measure the depth of the water. Add clothes and detergent and wash in the usual manner - you don't need to waste that water.

Next, pour four gallon jugs of water into a clean five-gallon pail, and mark the level in the pail (four gallons in the pail is much easier to handle than a brim-full five gallons). Pour that into the machine, and measure the depth. Put in another four gallons of water, and measure the depth again. If the bottom part of the agitator is covered by the first four gallons, you can can calculate from the increase in depth made by the second four gallons how many more gallons you need to get to the fill depth. (The bottom of the agitator takes up more volume per inch of depth than the center and top,) If the bottom of the agitator is not covered by the first four gallons, but is covered by the second four, then add a third four-gallon pour and measure the depth once more.

Here is an example measurement: water depth on chosen load size setting: 16 inches.

Depth on first four gallons: 2 1/2 inches (some of the water is under the bottom of the inner tub). The agitator bottom taper is almost covered, but not quite.

Depth on second four gallons: 7 inches. The water level is above the bottom section of the agitator, so from this point the water depth will increase by the same amount per gallon added.

Depth on the third four gallons: 11 inches. We can now see that from this point, adding four gallons makes the water level go up four inches, so to reach the 16 inch mark,we need five more gallons. The total will be 4+4+4+5 = 17 gallons.

For what it's worth, there's about 7.48 gallons per cubic foot. If your machine's outer tub holds an additional cubic foot of water, my example numbers may be roughly what you will get.

Brovos Maytag Showing a Error F1 is this an easy fix?


The code is caused by a water sensor. You can temporarily just dump about a half gallon of water into the tub before adding the clothes, and then have another half gallon for mid cycle. This stops the code from popping up. Try the half gallon thing and you will see.

I would try to run a few loads of towels with just water (no detergent or anything) to try and flush out any excess detergent residue you may have. I don't know if you are able to set your own water level on this machine, but if you are, I would just run an empty load or two.

Hope this helps...

My GEWBB2090G9WW clothes washer just installed and washer overflows - water fill does not shut off regardless of Small/Medium/Large load size selected.


HELLO THERE:
If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

5 month old Whirlpool Cabrio washer has moldy smell. Tub seems to empty well. Any ideas?


Smelly washers are common. Cabrio washers are HE and therefore use less water. By using less water, it doesn't rinse ITSELF as good as an older non-efficient machine. Things you can do to solve the problem. Buy a cleaner from Whirlpool called Affresh. It's 3 tablets that you throw in the washer without clothes and run it on the longest heavy duty cycle possible. Use the hot water setting and the longest duration. For existing smells use all 3 tablets. Then use 1 tablet every month to prevent reoccurring odors. You can also try the same type of cycle on hot water with a half of a gallon of bleach in the tub, or try it with a half of a gallon of vinegar. One of the 3 should do the trick.

Can you use regular detergent with front loader washers??


All manufactures suggest using a high efficiecy detergent. They are specially formulated to keep the suds level low and work well with the low water levels of a front loader. Boxes are marked with an HE on them letting you know they are for high effiency machines. Regular detergents were designed for washers that use many gallons of water.

Low Water Level in Roper washing machine


You need to check the pressure switch which is also called the water level switch. There is a small tube attached to it and it may have a blockage or a hole in it. You can find this behind the control panel to the left of the timer.

Water level adjustment


You don't. Front load washers use only a very small amount of water. They fill a small amount, tumble a bit, resulting in water being absorbed into the clothes, which drops the water level in the tub. The washer senses this and adds more water, which repeats until water level stabilizes. The only way to get more water on wash cycles is to use delicate cycles, which use more water, resulting in a more gentle wash action. Remember that due to the low water consumption of front load washers, you should only use one tablespoon of HE detergent per cycle. (even less if you use 2x or 3x concentrate.) This is a FixYa solution. Your washer is working as designed.
