My water level is too low. You can't even see any water while it is washing. It is NOT normal and my clothes are NEVER EVER clean. I am completely disappointed with this machine. I find myself rewashing items to try to get them clean. There are no soap suds ever visible. I was so excited to buy this thing. I researched on line about it being the best on the market and now I am so disappointed I would never recommend anyone to buy one.

Re: Water level too low
Fill it with no clothes in it, how much water goes in? How new is it? It may just have a problem with the level sensor. If it is brand new then it is under warranty. If you see suds, you are using too much detergent. My name is Michael, my email is email@example.com I have one of these machines and I run an appliance repair company. I would be more than happy to help you out. Let me know.

Possible that the water level sensor has failed and so it does not load to the level set by the program. You will need to check the level sensor to clear the water line of air block or dirt or faulty unit.Try to set a higher water level to the program settings and see if the water fills up on rinse, choose an different program
Yes. On top loading machines, it is very easy to see. On front loading machines, not so easy to tell. Front load machines fill to a very low level, (which is why you should only use 1 to 2 tablespoons of HE soap with them) then when they begin to tumble (wash motion) the clothes absorb water, causing the water level to drop, resulting in the fill of additional water until the original water level is acheived again. This process generally takes several times to get all the clothes saturated and the water level to stabilize. Additionally, water valves may cycle on and off several times as the machine adjusts the water temperature, even if you were running an empty washer through a cycle. Gentle cycles will use more water, as more water = less abrasive scrubbing action. Normally, using front loading machines, you will not see much if any water through the door window.
Try adjusting the water lvl going into the washer. Adjust accordingly. If you have a meter, just the resistance of the valves. Unplug of course. It should read about 1.4k ohms ish. Could be higher or lower but roughly that.
This sound like a faulty water level switch. This is a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the washer's outer tub. As water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start the agitate cycle. Look for any obstructions in the tube and the switch can be tested for continuity using a multimeter. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.
the water needed needs to just come up right under the door this is how much water they use cause they use a tumble wash to clean the clothes
low water preasure is a problem but also make sure both water inlets are being used (hot and cold) even if you dont have hot attach a y hose the machine needs both inlets in use
these machines use very low water usage but they still need a fill up point
The water level is very low on front load machines. (Below the bottom of the door) While the washer is running, push and hold the "spin speed" and "soil level" buttons at the time. Display should be between 230 and 255.(normal) If you do this while the machine is filling, you will see the numbers change. This machine only uses about 12 gallons of water for an entire cycle, vs. about 45 for some top loading machines. THIS IS NORMAL ! The machine will adjust the amount of water based on the type and volume of clothes in your washer. On a large load, you will see wet clothes, but no water sloshing around. PS. Because the machine uses so little water, make sure you use only one tablespoon of HE detergent (and only one teaspoon of fabric softner if you use it). This is very important.
