This is mentioned in the manual-the federal gov't has required manufacturers to set water levels lower to conserve water. You can fill it more by holding the load size level to reset until it has the amount you want.
It depending on exactly what your seeing that will determine the problem.
Does your washer start agitating and keep filling?? if yes it does start agitating and the water continuies to fill try disconnectiing the power and if it keeps filling what would be wrong is that the water inlet valve is sticking open and it would need to replaced
If the washer continues to fill and does not start agaitating would be a defective water level switch as you suspect it may be.If ya disconnect the power and it STOPS filling replace the water level(pressure) switch.
The water is siphoning out as it fills. Your drain hose is too low or has a air block. Remove the drain hose from the drain. Set the washer to fill. Hold the drain hose up higher than the washer. If it fills correctly and starts agitating,correct the drain hose problem.
sounds like your water level switch is bad OR the small hose that goes from the waterlevel switch to the bottom of the tank has a hole in it.Try replacing this small hose first.you can go to an auto parts store and match it up.it's usually about 3' long and about 1/4" inside diameter and about 99cents a foot.
That is because the water level switch get stuck when water level reaches that particular point.
The water level switch is activated either by a floater sensor or by a membrane sensor that detects water pressure/volume, depending on the model. On washing machines it is usually a membrane switch, and that is faulty on your machine.
it overflows from the tub then: This can either be a fault in the
fill sense tube( small tube connected to the bottom on the outer tub
from the sensor at or near the top of the washer housing ) becoming
blocked or broken or a fault with the sensor itself. There is a mechanical adjustment for the level but it is a little fiddly to get the adjustment just right.
If it overfills from the drain hose: then either the drain hose is too low and the water
siphons out before it reaches the maximum or there is a tight seal at
the drain hose to house drain port which will cause all the water to
siphon out, this can also be caused by a drain hose being pushed too far down the house drain port.
It sounds like you are trying to use the largest water level setting. If this is correct you may have a pressure switch problem.
First turn the timer to spin and get all of the water out, that start a washer cycle with the water level set to the small or low setting and see if the washer fills to this level. if it stops at the low level great Now if it continues to fill and does stop you may need a pressure switch or the hose needs to be replaced that runs from the tub to the pressure switch.
Now set at the medium level and try again. does it stop or over fill?
If it over fills you probably need a pressure switch however before you purchase this, make sure the hose is in good condition one pin hole will cause your overfill condition.
