Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

I bought a brand new Hotpoint washer, model #HSWP1000M3WW. The water level for super size load during wash seems high enough. But the water level for the rinse is about a third of the super wash level. I called repair man and he said the rinse water level is supposed to be that low. Is that true? I felt he didn't know what he was talking about. I'm so disappointed.

I would check with the vendor that sold you the unit and see what they have to say or send an email to the Contact Us link on their website and ask. I am guessing no mention of the in your owners manual?

Thanks to the idiotic government bureaucrats at the DOE, you can only use a 5 inch dept of rinse water in your washer. You also can only use cold water for rinse. Look on YouTube for a solution to the water level, and there is a mod you can do to make the rinse water the same temp as the wash.

My Washing Machine is not spinning all the water out of my clothes.


Front loading washers are notorious for not spinning the water out of a small load of clothes. This is because there is not enough clothes in the washer to balance the tub during the spin cycle.

Try washing a slightly larger load with a minimum of six items or more. This is one of the downsides to front load models and no specific brand is immune to the problem.

Lg front load washing machine does not seem to get the clothes clean. I think it is because it uses so little water??? How can it get clothes clean with just a few cupfulls of water? All controls and...


I have run into this problem several times with LG washers. On one job LG had us replace every electronic componet that had anything to do with the water fill and the problem still was not resolved. The electronic control determines how much water to fill depending on the load size, so smaller loads give you less water, with the same amount of soap. Leaving clothes in the washer overnight, and leaving the door closed does contribute to mold and fungi growth in the washer. The customer tried different brands of soaps and different amounts of soap. He left the door open after usage to allow the unit to dry out, and tried different cleaners, to clean out the sludge build up. We determined that there just is not enough water to thoroughly clean the clothes. The sales store had to replace the washer with another brand. There is an ongoing class action lawsuit against Lg for this problem. Do an online Search for lg washer lawsuit. By the way, we don't have a problem with clothes not getting clean with the Whirlpool Super Capacity Duet Front-Loading Washers. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

GE WJRR4170 washer comes out of overflow tube on super load. It does not on Large load size. I have the front off and can see a large difference in water level from large to super size. Is this adjustable?


I have a 2005 model GE washer that would overfill only on SUPER size load. After looking around on the web, then inside the machine, I checked the tube from the tub to the switch, no problem there. Then I found an adjustment screw on the load size selector / pressure switch (all one piece). I moved it one turn clockwise, then ran a test cycle. I got lucky on the first try... no more overflow, the water comes up just above the top holes in the tub. I hope this will help others.

Frigidaire washer


hi mom,

could it be that these newer models now a days uses less water to wash clothes?

that is what they are boasting about.

energy efficient washing machines..less water more cleaning. ( at least that's what they say) specially on front loading types. not like the top loading where it uses a lot of water.

please check your owner's manual, it may be stated in there regarding water level of the new washer.


tnx 4 using fixya,
