### Water capacity kawe860w

I don't have the number for you, but I can offer a method for measuring it. First, the next time you do laundry, set the water level switch to where you will use it for the dyeing task. With the lid open, but with no clothes inside, turn on the washing machine. Observe and note the level of the water when the machine stops filling. Measure the depth of the water. Add clothes and detergent and wash in the usual manner - you don't need to waste that water.

Next, pour four gallon jugs of water into a clean five-gallon pail, and mark the level in the pail (four gallons in the pail is much easier to handle than a brim-full five gallons). Pour that into the machine, and measure the depth. Put in another four gallons of water, and measure the depth again. If the bottom part of the agitator is covered by the first four gallons, you can can calculate from the increase in depth made by the second four gallons how many more gallons you need to get to the fill depth. (The bottom of the agitator takes up more volume per inch of depth than the center and top,) If the bottom of the agitator is not covered by the first four gallons, but is covered by the second four, then add a third four-gallon pour and measure the depth once more.

Here is an example measurement: water depth on chosen load size setting: 16 inches.

Depth on first four gallons: 2 1/2 inches (some of the water is under the bottom of the inner tub). The agitator bottom taper is almost covered, but not quite.

Depth on second four gallons: 7 inches. The water level is above the bottom section of the agitator, so from this point the water depth will increase by the same amount per gallon added.

Depth on the third four gallons: 11 inches. We can now see that from this point, adding four gallons makes the water level go up four inches, so to reach the 16 inch mark,we need five more gallons. The total will be 4+4+4+5 = 17 gallons.

For what it's worth, there's about 7.48 gallons per cubic foot. If your machine's outer tub holds an additional cubic foot of water, my example numbers may be roughly what you will get.

### How do I ajust water level for more water for wm2240cw hardly adds water

water level is automatically set and adjusted for volume and type of clothing. (at a low level, below the bottom of the door) If you select a delicate cycle, the water level will be slighly higher. These water levels are all that is required to clean in these machines. Take that into account when adding your laundry detergent. Old top load machines used 40 or more gallons per cycle. Your machine uses about 13 gallons, so you should only be using 1 to 2 tablespoons of HE laundry detergent per load. (only 1 teaspoon of fabric softner if you use it)

### My sister pours a lot of liquid softener into our Kenmore Elite front load dispenser. I said to only use 1/4 cup as recommended. Will using too much fabric softener cause problems?

YES!! This machine uses an average of 14 gallons of water per load as compared to 40 gallons for a top load!! Less water means less detergents!! Excess detergent and softener can create build up withing the machine that will cause unpleasant odors and eventually rear bearing failure.

### Need APPROXIMATE water consumption on 10 yr old Whirlpool washer

Hello. The older top load washers use up to 60 gallons of water per load. That said, also check your toilets as a leaking toilet can use tens of thousands of gallons per year. Here is a link that explains how to check your toilets and other items for leaks. Regards, Joe

When set on large load, it will use close to 30 gallons of water. On the smallest load setting, it will use right around 20 gallons. This is what makes the new front load washers look so good. They average around 4 - 6 gallons per load. Have a great day.

### WATER USEAGE

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.
