Depending on the age and size of your washer-Front loaders cut water use by nearly 40 percent. A typical top-loading washer uses about 40 gallons of water for each full load. In contrast, a full-size horizontal axis clothes washer uses only 20 to 25 gallons. That means that, by purchasing a horizontal axis model, you could save as much as 7,000 gallons of water per year. You also save all the energy you would have used to heat that water, meaning added savings for you and a big boost for the environment. These appliances also use less energy than conventional washers - approximately 50 percent less, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Fills with water, skips wash and rinse cycle, starts spin cycle and sprays water out of the top


I would look at lid switch on this model and plunger to lid .Under lid is spray flume that can be damaged by large loads ,check that close. put it in wash full and drop lid hard it may come on.

I have an admiral washer atw4475xq can you adjust the water level on the rinse cycle


Pulled this together from a couple of Solutions & added some helpful tips I found as I successfully changed the rinse cycle water level!
ATW4475XQ - Admirial Water Saver washer - Adjust Rinse cycle water level
The rinse cycle water level can be adjusted. Unplug the machines power.
You can youtube a video on how to remove the top control panel, its just 2 screws on the back of it,
phillips head. Swing the control panel up, and find something to support it so you have both hands free.
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYn0_qCFdec)
You'll see a clear plastic tube coming up from the back rear like 3/8 in diameter, to a "T"
connection. The one that goes to the left, thats the wash water level switch it connects to. The one you
can adjust, large, medium, small, from the front of the panel . The other off the T goes to the rinse
water level switch. There is not a knob to adjust it. But if you look at the bottom of the lever
mechanism/cam pickups of both switchs, you will see that they are the same. Rotate the wash load size
(knob on outside of control panel) from small to large, back to small, notice how the mechanism changes?
The rinse water level swtich acts the same way, although it is only a 2 position switch, small and
large. Once you watch the wash level mechanism move from rotating it back and forth a few times, you
should be able to see how to rotate that same mechanism on the rinse switch 1 click. It will click into
place, there are only 2 positions as I said and from the factory its in small, so once it "clicks in"
dont go any further. I did mine with a very small screw driver without removing the rinse switch.
Once you get that hidden switch turned to the other position, put it back together, fire it up and now
your rinse is the large level, all the time.
NOTE: There is a white plunger out of the end of each switch with a screw located in place. Dont mess
with the screw or that plunger. As you adjust the lever mechanism/cam this adjusts the amount of that
plunger sticking out, which changes the pressure pickup for water level.

The level of water in the rinse cycle is extremely low to the point that the clothes are not rinsed. Why is there such a large differential between the level of water in the wash and rinse cycle? How can...


Low water pressure or bad inlet valve, or clogged screens in fill hoses, check flow with hoses disconected these will be the causes! check hot and cold fills than check warm, any differnt all setting work?

Cold water knob is not working


Check the screen on the cold valve. If power is getting to the valve and the screens are clean then the coil is bad. Check continuity if you have a meter.
