Can I make the water level on my whirlpool duet washer higher?

It seems to me there is not enough water in the washer to get my clothes completely wet when I fill it more than half way full of laundry.

I always let the washer run about 2 mins which is usually long enough to wet the clothes really good then I hit the cancel button twice and it will empty any excess water, which usually isn't any. then I quickly tap the start button, add my detergent and softner and let the cycle run. I'm like u, I know it's supposed to cut down on water use, but I want the clothes clean too! sometimes when it shows "add garments" i'll tap pause, open the door and poir in a gallon or 2 of water from a big pitcher I keep handy. hope this helps

Its because of the design of the machine they are water efficient.a front load uses any where from 15 to 18 gals. compared to 40 to 50 gals.for a top load. they also have a higher spin rate than the top loader,therefore making your close dryer and having a less drying time in the dryer.energy efficient too!!

Not enough water in a front load washer.


Water levels adjust automatically to the size of the load - no guesswork and this conserves water. If this is really a problem she should see if her warranty is still in effect and contact a service tech to check it out. She can also check with Whirlpool customer service - http://whirlpool.custhelp.com/app/answers/list
Good luck!

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.

Wash cycle water level


the water needed needs to just come up right under the door this is how much water they use cause they use a tumble wash to clean the clothes
low water preasure is a problem but also make sure both water inlets are being used (hot and cold) even if you dont have hot attach a y hose the machine needs both inlets in use
these machines use very low water usage but they still need a fill up point
