No problem as yet. Just purchased a whirlpool front load top of the line. The instructions are very good except I can't find any instructions regarding adjusting the water level for smaller and la


For the Whirlpool WFW96HEAC front-load washer, the water level adjustment is made by the washer based on the size of the load. If only 3-4 items are in the tub, it will do a small load. If you fill the tub completely, it will do a large load. (Note: if the clothes are packed into the tub, they can't tumble and won't get cleaned.) Loading the tub with clothes until it is 1/2 or 3/4 full are the other load sizes.

Please add a comment with the model of your washer, I'll be glad to give additional help. I hope this helps.

If I have a small amount of clothes to wash, will the water level adjust itself?


the unit may due it due to the load size but the unit is only using about 2 -4 gallons of water depending on load, and only 16-18 gallons through the whole wash cycle, I hope it helps

Ice maker only fills the tray partially.


There is an adjustment, but first check your filters, including the one in the inlet of the control valve. To find the adjustment, take the cover off the front of the ice maker. On the side may be a little hole. Look for any 'increase' arrow or such. If not, use a small screwdriver to turn the adjustment a half turn and let it make a load of ice. If it gets smaller, go the other way, use small adjustments. If you can get the owner's manual, it will help a lot. Google your unit for one, you may be able to get it downloaded free from Whirlpool.

The washer only fills up full even when I put the load size on sm


Check the other knob or switch on top. Perhaps it has some settings regarding small, medium, or large load. This switch may be defective. Go to
www.repairclinic.com for more help on removal and replacement. You can also order a new one from them.
