I don't think I am getting enough water to appropriately wash.
How do you know if the water level is appropriate? After the water shuts off during the first cycle there isn't anmy water in the tub, the clothes appear to soak up all the water. Is this correct or should the clothes roll through at least some water as the tub rotates?

Re: I don't think I am getting enough water to...
This is correct, the machine will only fill the clithes to a saturation point and not much more part that at all, as the cycle progresses and more water is needed it will addd accordingly, yo have an extremely efficient machine there!!!1/3 the water and 1/2 the electric of conventional top loading washers

Hmmm... sounds like it could be the water level sensor. If it were the water input valve itself, the water would be running ALL the time.
It is usually a water pressure sensor switch that is underneath the machine that likely has a plastic hose attached to the bottom of the tub. When the water level gets to the appropriate level, the water pressure opens the switch and that shuts off the water inlet valve.
Here is a link that explains it quite well.
Hope this helps... floods are a pain.
There is a part called a air-dome that is connected to the lower section of your outer drum. The part where you put your clothes in is called the inner drum.The air-dome has a small tube connected to it which travels up the drum to a level sensor in the control panel that turns off the water when the washer is full to the point water level is set.This is usually on top loaders.
If it fills with water and starts the cycle and
the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the
water supply comes in is sticking. It need replacing.
Your pressure switch stops the
water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the
control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which
goes down between the inner and outer tube. As the water level increases the
air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch
stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't
work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still
connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.
Check for a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm like device with a small 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 start the appropriate cycle. Make sure the plastic tube is not obstructed or damaged in any way. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
Most washer's utilize a diaphragm-like device/water level switch. There is a small 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 start the appropriate cycle. If the machine is underfilling or overfilling, look for any damage to or restrictions in the tube. The switch can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.
There may be too much water and not enough clothes in the washer. If that is the case the water rises up the side of the tub when spinning and overflows the inner tub. Usually it goes into the outer tub but it can spurt out through bleach dispenser and run down the inside of the cabinet or hit the lid and splash out. Set water level (Xsmall, small, medium, large, Xlarge) appropriate for amount of clothes.
It only causes an increase in my triple AAA rating......
A for annoyed
If your clothes are not propertly washed it leads to skin manifestations. example neck face and head issues due to pillow cases that are not really clean. I have had it....................this is cleaning them daily. I think I am going to go find a wash board and wash my pillow cases by hand nothing like going back in time. Less water 2 hour cycles are they serious how is this saving money. I have to wash thing twice because they don't come clean. Yes I have used all the appropriate settings and detergents. I am going to have my husband go buy me a hose adapter and hook it to my bathroom sink and bypass this stupidity. I bet I good run the quick cycle and get things clean if I only had enough water.................
