This is not adjustable. When full, the water level should be: between the very bottom of glass and about 2" up from bottom of glass. Anywhere around that level is fine. If water overfills, your pressure sensor may be bad, or its little hose could be clogged. To check for clog: Remove top (Two 1.5mm Torx screws in rear) ; On right side, see 3" round (brick red) plastic gadget (that's the pressure sensor - that determines water depth) with a few wires connected to it ; Unplug the power cord - for safety ; pull small black tube off pressure sensor and blow into it. If it's not clogged you'll hear bubbling (if there's water in machine) or just hear air going into drum. Pressure sensors very rarely go bad.

Users manual for admiral atw4475xq


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.

There does not seem to be enough water in machine to wash with


This problem could have a number of different causes. Unless it is a machine specifically designed to operate at reduces water levels, the likely cause is that the sensor that determines how much the machine fills up is somewhat blocked or going bad. The blockage would prevent accurate sensing of the water level. See the explanation below:
The level sensor uses a pressure switch to detect the water level in the tub.
washer-level-switch.jpg
Water level control switch
This switch controls how high the tub fills with water.
washer-level-hose.jpg
Water level control switch plumbing
The big end of the hose connects to the bottom of the tub, while the small end connects to the switch. As the water level in the tub rises, water rises in the hose also; but the air in the hose is trapped, so as the water rises, the air is compressed.
washer-level-switch-open.jpg
Inside the water level control switch
Inside the housing of this switch is a little piston. The pressure in the hose pushes the piston up. When it is raised far enough, it pops up and closes an electrical contact. This set point, where the contact is lost, is adjustable, and in the picture you can see the cam mechanism that is connected to the adjuster knob on the control panel of the washer. As the cam turns, it presses a spring against the cylinder, making it harder for the cylinder to pop up. This means that the water level will have to rise some more before the pressure in the hose will be high enough to trigger the switch.

How to adjust water level in tank---Kohler Wellworth toilet


please make sure the water is off!
the fluid master has a slip ring at the bottom of the float base it pulls up then you can adjust the float up or, down and, snap it back down.
at the top of the float you will see a cross-headed plastic bolt; this is adjusted for fine level control using a large conventional philips screwdriver.

remove the left and right edge trims on the control panel
remove the phillips screws under the edge trims
raise control panel ~1 inch and flip over backwards.
  • ensure air tube is attached( water level sensor operates off air tube from bottom of drum to control body, (bottom is not loose or there would be water all over the floor))
  • Blow any water out of the air tube, it should be empty when the washer is empty, water remaining in the tube messes up the pressure sensing(usually makes water level lower so doubt this is the fault)
  • ensure wires are connected to control body.
Kenmore pressure switches are adjustable, the adjustment is hidden.
An internal spring stretches over time and does not react properly.
to test whether just the adjustment is required,

  1. remove the water level knob from the front side of console
  2. depress the lock tab at the right side of water level sensor body where it contacts the back side of the console and rotate counter clockwise 45degrees
  3. withdraw water level sensor body
  4. adjacent to shaft for the knob is 1/8inch bolt head, turn clockwise to raise, counter clockwise to lower water level.
  5. washer can be operated with the console open and the level body removed just dont shock yourself on the cable connectors
  6. test, adjust, test adjust. (water level switch may need to be flicked hi-med & back to test adjustment
  7. if no effect replace water level sensor body
The water level switch body contains a small spring that is not really up to the job and stretches over years,
do this repair, on call, no parts, takes 15 minutes,, 3-4 times a month

Kenmore 90 series top loader washer water level.


There are easy checks before you replace the level selector body

remove the trim plates at both ends of the control panel to expose Phillips head screws 1 at each end. remove the screws
lift and swing the control panel up and over the back, it is hinged at the top.
The washer can be operated in this condition for testing

1 Rremove the air hose, and blow it out.
often water remains in the tube after changing levels, the water is not compressible so a small change in water level in the tank, makes too much difference in the sensor.
reconnect the tube and try a cycle ~1/3 chance of fixing it

If fail,
2 The spring inside Kenmore water level sensors that reacts to air pressure in the tube is not up to the job and stretches, not noticeable till changing water level settings moves the anchor point of the spring.
pull off water level knob from control panel front, from control panel back depress lock tab at right of level selector body rotate counter clockwise 45 deg and remove
adjacent to selector knob shaft is 1/8inch nut, turn clockwise to raise water level counter-clockwise to lower water level, test, adjust, test adjust ~1/2chance of fixing it

If fail
replace level selector body

Water level


Your water level is adjusted automatically by the machine, you dont have any control over this. What yu need to see is to keep your wall faucet fully open before the wash, also check whether the pressure is good. It is normal that you see a low level thru your glass in machine............
