Ours isn't a Kenmore HE FL, but a Whirlpool Duet 9150. I add soap to my soap dispenser (a small amount), set the cycle and turn machine on. I set a timer for about 6 minutes, then I add 4 gallons of water by pulling the soap dispenser drawer out about 2.5 inches and pouring water in. I do not open the door itself, but the soap drawer. At this point, the water will now touch the bottom rim of the glass door and gets ALL the clothes wet...even those wrapped in the middle. It has helped TREMENDOUSLY in actually cleaning our clothes now, but it is a PAIN to have to add water to each load! BUT my clothes are getting clean and before they weren't...before, the soap would build up in my clothes. (Did I mention that I only use about 3/4 of the tiny little circular measuring cup of Tide HE? I doubt it is a tablespoon.)

Too much water going to the tub


Many top load machines have a big metal water level sensor up in the electronics bank with a plastic tube that senses pressure as it fills. There is a small half inch screw in the center of it that is adjustable to set the water level on that thing. The sensor sort of looks like a car EGR vacuum recycler valve. Check Google images of washing machine water level sensors to see if your has it, as it is fairly universal. Make sure your pressure tube is not loose or kinked.

Overflow during cycles


There is an adjustable water level sensor up in the electronics bank on many Whirlpool toploaders. It is usually metal, about 2 inches around and has a 3/8" diameter hose going down to the tub that senses air pressure as it fills. Try to back off the half inch screw in the center a little. Check on Google images to see if your machine has something that looks like this somewhat universal adjustable "water level sensor"
(use quotes around your search phrase).

Can you ajust water level to be more in washer


No.

As with all modern machines your senses the size of the load and adjusts water levels accordingly. Unlike older machines, this means that less water is used and less energy is used to heat excess water. It also means that you get a better wash as the cleaning quality is lower if the load is sloshing about in too much water.

Is there a switch or screw to increase water in washer


In short No. The water level is determined by the pressure switch and its feedback to the controller.

Is there a way to increase the water level on a whirlpool front load Duet washer model GHW-9150


If the machine is underfilling, check the water level switch. This diaphragm like device has a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to advance to the appropriate cycle. Make sure the plastic tube has no damage or obstruction. An obstruction can cause the switch to be activated too early.The switch can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity would indicate a faulty switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Increasing the water is not possible and would not help anyway. The odor is from bacteria. To kill the bacteria run a load without clothes on the HOT wash setting and add a cup of bleach to the soap dispenser. In the future to prevent it from returning use the hottest water allowed by the clothing care tag and use bleach whenever possible. If you don't like to use bleach or hot water you may need to repeat the cleaning once a month. Also make sure you are using a HE detergent. Non HE detergent can suds up and the suds may not rinse out with the water and can create an odor.
