Question about LG WM1815CS Front Load Washer
I know the LG washer is supposed to use little water, but mine uses so little water the clothes aren't even damp. They come out smelling worse than they went in. I see some models have an extra-water button, this one does not. Is there a way I can get it to use ALOT more water?
On my LG front load washer, I can manually add another 1.5 gallons of water if I choose the permanent press cycle. I choose permanent press and press the button for extra soil so that the wash cycle lasts 10 minutes longer. Then after starting the machine I wait about 3-4 minutes until it fills, and then I add another gallon and a half of water through the detergent drawer. Once the machine does its two rinses and turns off I press the button to do rinse and spin. This cycle fills the machine with quite a bit of water for the final rinse and it gets out most if not all of the detergent. Adding the extra water during the wash cycle really helped the washing performance in my machine.

Check water hose connections for debris blockage first. It might be that simple.

I had the same problem with my LG top loading washer but now I wash all loads on bulky and the washer fills up to the top. I am finally getting clean clothes. Before there were parts on the clothes that were still totally dry in spots after having gone through a complete wash cycle and I was NOT putting too many clothes in.

You will need to have a qualified LG technician come out and see what the problem is. You may have a water level switch issue.

I think I have the same type of washing machine as you do. Wash is when all the clothes get agitated or mixed with soap and water (ever look in there when its washing? the water can get pretty gross looking!) So in my washer, the rinse cycle is when all that gross water is drained, and the washer spins while spraying clean water over the clothes to get rid of the dirty water and soap. I think mine does this 5 or 6 times in the cycle. Next is the spin cycle, which is when the washer spins REALLY fast to **** as much water out of the clothes as possible, so that the clothes aren't sopping wet when you put them in the dryer.
It sounds like your mom has a newer washing machine, probably a front load one, and they do seem to keep using clean water, instead of just agitating the clothes in dirty water.
