Even when I put the water level on high, the water does not cover the clothes in the machine. The batches of clothes are always medium or small.

Check for a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the 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 appropriate cycle. Make sure the plastic tube is not obstructed or damaged in any way. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad switch

WHY IS WATER LEVEL LOW CAN I CHANGE THE SETTING ON WATER


there should be a knob on the control panel showing small, medium, large maybe even super. that is how you change the water level. Its for different amounts of clothing your washing at a time. If you put in a few clothes then you have the option of using less water.

Does not sense clothes


most top loaders fill to the setting you enter into the program l( medium low high etc ) as the clothes absorb the water it will keep filling until a level is reached at which point that is the amount of water for the clothes and the machine will start you just have to think about how many clothes you are washing and how big they are ie blanket will be a big load and nickers will be small load

How much water should be in machine


It depends on the amount of clothes that is put into the TUB and it must be adjusted to the level required as low, medium etc.
The water level sensor will cut off the inlet valve when it reaches the desired set level. The water level should be a little over the clothes put into the tub.

Whirlpool Washing Machine Leaking At top During Spin Cycle


Is it possible that the water level is too high. This can be caused by the sensor that controls the amount of water. The control knob that says small low medium large does it work if you put our small setting is the water stopped early like it is supposed to. If the water level is too high during spin cycle it is possible to run up and over the side. Let me know Ed

The water level never stops, it just fills till it over flows


if on auto level select water level eg medium or low depending on amount of clothes this sometimes works dont use auto water level. If not check small pipe under touch board on top panel, make sure u unplug mains from plug pipe may be loose its small plastic goes to level sensor on right of board. If not level sensor faulty.

My GEWBB2090G9WW clothes washer just installed and washer overflows - water fill does not shut off regardless of Small/Medium/Large load size selected.


HELLO THERE:
If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Bunn omatic won't make full pot-even with water line hooked up


Use the dial with numbers on it and adjust to a higher number. Remember to go in half steps such as 2 adjusted to 2 1/2, 3 adjust to 3 1/2 etc.

If you only have a High Low knob, that is to set your water temp.

If you have an electronic circuit board, you will need to follow the batch instructions pasted on the inside cover (facing the lower burner) to adjust for water level/batch. This cover has 4 screws.

This might be Lid cover open protection. There is a small magnet at the edge of the lid cover, housed in some sort of a catch.
If the plastic housing cracked, the magnet might have dropped into the washing drum. To overcome this, place a magnet on the position where the plastic catch will contact the washer when the lid is close.
