Question about Washing Machines

There is not enough water in our machine

We realize that the machine is set for conservation, but there doesn't appear to be enough water to clean our clothes properly. We want to change the sensor to allow for more water to fill the washing machine. How do we accomplish this task?

You probably don't need as much water as you think you do. If you use the HE detergent, it will not suds up like a top loader. The water and detergent are concentrated and uses much less water. The only way to get more water in the machine is to use a larger size wash load option. Hope this solves all your problems for you.

Is there a way I can change the settings of Whirlpool Washer Model # CAE2743BQ, because this Machine has a very low level of water. Kindly teach us how to make the water plenty in the washer..


If you do not have owner's manual, try manualslib.com Double check the method for setting water level (load size). There may be an "energy conservation or water conservation" mode.
I would also take the purchase receipt to Home Depot and ask for help. If it is all machines, there may be a factory defect. Hopefully, you are within the factory warranty time.

Will not clean dishes


Sometimes because of water pressure the inlet valve doesn't allow enough water into the machine to satisfy the float switch so you don't have enough water to completely clean the dishes.Manufacturers install whats called a flow washer to control the flow of water into the machine in case of too much water pressure. What you can do is remove the flow washer from the valve itself to allow enough water to enter the machine. The other problem could be that the water is not hot enough. Some water heaters are set to 120 deg. to save on utility bills. To clean effectively the dishwasher water temp needs to be at least 160 deg. which is the temp restaurants use to clean and sterilize their dishes. Check to see if your dishwasher has a water heat switch on the control panel that will increase the water temp to 160 deg. If not just turn up your water heater temp. To check water flow just open the door when it is finished with the first fill right before it starts washing and check to see if the float switch is satisfied. You can check it by just pushing down on it and listening for a click. Either one of these should solve your dirty dish problem. Good luck

Sometimes there isn't enough hot water for a shower when the hot water mode is set.I have set the hot water temperature to 65 degrees


Are you waiting long enough for the water to be totally heated, before showering? Unfortunately, all the water doesn't reach 60 degrees celsius (140 degrees fahrenheit) in a matter of minutes. Try switching to the hot water mode sooner and allow enough time for the system to heat up entirely. If that doesn't solve the problem, the burner may need cleaning,

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

The pump is probably not moving the water out of the machine fast enough. Even with cleaning the pump out I have seen where the pump doesn't work efficiently enough to satisfy the machine. Replace the pump.

What is conservation of mass and energy and give example


In fact there are 2 different conservation laws: conservation of mass and conservation of energy. Of course in a chemical or any other physical process these 2 laws will hold!
Conservation of mass: the mass of a closed (isolated system) system will remain constant over time.
Conservation of energy: total amount of energy in an closed system remains constant over time
Furthermore if we look into the relativity theory, it states that in fact mass and energy are two names for the same thing (the equivalence principle of mass and energy), neither one "appears" without the other.
Example: an iron nail left in a cup of water until it turns entirely to rust. A precise scale will register a change in mass. The energy will appear as heat, which will be lost to the environment so because of the conservation law you will see a loss in the mass of the system.

Washing Machine MAF18-MC4VS This machine use a lot of water. Is there a way to save water. Please advice. Thanks. Calvin


One way I found to conserve water use, is either the washing machine has a water saver button feature or just use cold water as much as possible. That way, you are not using up the hot water and conserving the gas or electric that it takes to heat the water.

Soap left in cups when cycle is over


If the problem is that the dishwasher isn't filling with enough water, you should replace the water valve.

If it's getting enough water, but dishes have a white film on them or are still not getting clean, you may have hard water build up in your machine. Try to run a dishwasher cleaner thru it, or depending on how much buildup you have, you may need to take the dishwasher apart and clean it. I know JetDry puts a cleaner out, but I haven't personally tried it yet.

You can usually see white buildup inside the dishwasher if this is your problem.

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.................
