I was told by a GE repair person that the level is deliberately set lower in the tub to comply with government regulations. I do not buy this but with the government liberal intervention going on in all our lives, this would not surprise me.

The solution appears to be that you will have to have someone who can open this up and move the high water fill sensor up in the tub; up to an inch or so down from the top of the tub. I would not go less than this but ideally an in and a half is good. This still winds up being well over 4 inches what it normally does. And make sure you do this while on high. On the lesser settings it seems to go by a timed value with the computer on the unit. I don't have problems with the smaller settings but washing pillows is virtually impossible with this model where my old 2.5 tub Maytag had no trouble doing pillows.

1998 dodge ram 1500 po132 engine light wont go off after replacing h2o sensors

the h2o sensor may not be the only problem, some thing else is setting off the sensor, a pin hole in the hose, a loose connection, cracked lines, plug lines, blockage of sensor that controls the h2o unit, look at the whole picture, housing, gasket is that area, too much h2o, not enough h2o, gases mixtures + h20's, make sure you have the air pressures sucking and pushing through the line.
you are going to have to a service manual and general information how the h20 system works in that vehicle. test points.

h2o is the chemical symbol for water. But if the water keeps running and does not stop, even when the machine is full it could be the machine has a defect level indicator, or the water lock does not work. When the lock even don't closes what you remove the power the lock is defect.

The equation for photosynthesis is?

In oxygenic photosynthesis water is the electron donor and, since its hydrolysis releases oxygen, the equation for this process is: 2n CO2 + 4n H2O + photons ? 2(CH2O)n + 2n O2 + 2n H2O. carbon dioxide + water + light energy ? carbohydrate + oxygen + water.

What is a H2Os that was mentioned in my answer.

Stands for Heated oxygen sensor. You will see it designated like this: HO2S. Later model cars use a heater circuit in the oxygen sensor to heat it up for quicker operation. This is why you see 4- wire oxygen sensors; a heating element in the sensor requires 2 more wires- a power wire to the element and a ground wire for it.

I have a hotpoint Ultima WT741, and it doesnt stop filling up whilst in use on a wash/spin and says H2O, and then overflows out the top of the washing machine. Whats the matter with it?

If the flow at the inlet valve is good and then the water comes into the system. Now if the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- does not activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch off the INLET VALVE , it will overflow. So the fault is the water level sensor and showing the error H2O.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

No steam H2O comes up on the control screen

Water isn't getting to the H20 sensor. Try running some vinegary through it. Water will leave mineral deposits after is's been in use for a long time or has been stored with water in it that has evaporated.Check all hoses running from water tank to the heating element.

On the digital display says H2O what may be the problem lost the manual

Water level. If it is not getting enough water, the valve may be faulty. Otherwise the water level sensor may be faulty if the machine is emptying itself frequently

Machine fills with water then stops with H2O flashing in the display

Check water inlet valve (valves) for no fill or low water pressure.
