Not enough water

Water goes into the washer but the level is to low. Can this level be adjusted?

    I have the same problem- support told me I shouldn't see much water. I don't believe them. I soak items before they go in the washer and hit the extra water button. Still not great, but helps the load sensor register a more full load and therefore, more water. NMM

    Ok.. So you have explained that this machine conserves water.... however referring back to the original question.... is there a way to adjust this.

    I am all for conserving recourses but I would like to balance that with wearing clean cloth and with the current water level my machine uses the cloth are not as clean as they should be...

    Yes I use the correct type an amount of detergent

    Yes all the hoses are new, clean, non kinked and in perfect condition

    Yes the filter is clean

    Yes I load it to the proper level

    Yes I am separating the load by type, color and wash instructions

    Yes I am selecting the proper wash cycle on the machine

    Yes I am selecting extra water and extra rinse.

    Yes I had a tech come out and check the machine he said I was fine

    Yet I feel a little more water would wash my cloth properly in one wash cycle...

    ….The concept of energy and water conservation is going out the window; as I currently have to wash all my cloth TWICE!!! in order to get the level of cleanliness I would get with my "OLD" top loader in one wash cycle.

    If there is no option to increase the water level … I must say I am VERY disappointed with this machine as the concept of water and energy conservation is predicated on wearing less than clean cloth… so I guess in that sprit I will take it one step further…. I will just stop washing and bathing all together.. and really do my part to conserve resources….

    Hope you can help with this question

If your clothes are not propertly washed it leads to skin manifestations. example neck face and head issues due to pillow cases that are not really clean. I have had it....................this is cleaning them daily. I think I am going to go find a wash board and wash my pillow cases by hand nothing like going back in time. Less water 2 hour cycles are they serious how is this saving money. I have to wash thing twice because they don't come clean. Yes I have used all the appropriate settings and detergents. I am going to have my husband go buy me a hose adapter and hook it to my bathroom sink and bypass this stupidity. I bet I good run the quick cycle and get things clean if I only had enough water.................

Hi there the reason you get less water in your w/m is to conserve water supply if you were on metered water but what you will notice is that the wash time is now twice as long to compensate the lack of water also with the machine using less water there is less energy consumed heating it up as there is less of it.
this is why these machines are rated AAA

A for wash results

A for water consumption

A energy efficiancy

hope this is of some help and dosen't sound to geek'y

Leaking water while washing but not by every load,please help

Are you putting clothes in first or as you fill the machine??? This is a normal capacity washer, so you need to be sure to fill with clothes first, I believe this will cure it. If that isn't your trouble, you may have a level switch that isn't working correctly. That would be easy enough to fix. Check on High, Med and Low levels and see how much water goes in, if it looks high on any of them, you can use that leveling screw on the level switch itself to regulate how high or low it goes. UNPLUG the machine when inside, so you don't shock yourself, Make your adjustment, then replug and try before you reassemble the machine. Unplug for that too, just to be safe. :) let me know how it works out for you

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.

When I flush toilet wht water swirls and flushes,

check the water level in the tank, if you do not have enough water it will give problems flushing. if the level is low there are two different adjustments you can make on the float and valve to get the required water level to get an efficent flush.

Can you adjust the water level on the LG Tromm WM1814CW? The water level when washing and rinsing is so low that the clothes are barely wet when the washer has finished.

No. Water level is not user adjustable. The washer will automatically put in the correct amount (about 3 inches in the bottom of the tub) and adjust for load size and type. This level is all that is needed. The reason the clothes are hardly wet at the end of the cycle is due to the high spin speed (compared to almost all top loading machines). If you want to see how wet the clothes really are, pause the machine mid cycle and the door will unlock and you can see, or select a "no spin" option and see at the end of that cycle. You will use about 12 gallons of water for a large load, vs. about 45 for a top loading machine, so remember to adjust your soap and fabric softener use accordingly. ( one tablespoon detergent and one teaspoon fabric softener maximum per load)

Water level adjustment

You don't. Front load washers use only a very small amount of water. They fill a small amount, tumble a bit, resulting in water being absorbed into the clothes, which drops the water level in the tub. The washer senses this and adds more water, which repeats until water level stabilizes. The only way to get more water on wash cycles is to use delicate cycles, which use more water, resulting in a more gentle wash action. Remember that due to the low water consumption of front load washers, you should only use one tablespoon of HE detergent per cycle. (even less if you use 2x or 3x concentrate.) This is a FixYa solution. Your washer is working as designed.
