Is there a way to owerride automatic water level adjustment?
I have a Frigidaire Gallery, front loading machine.
It does not have a knob to select water level options. Product description states that the machine automatically adjusts water level depending on the load.
Well, I want this machine to use more water. Is there a way that i can switch this 'automatic' feature off, and just set the level manually once and for all?
Thank you, in advance.

I understand that you are trying to replace the selector knob on your Frigidaire washer, GLTF2940E. Normally this is not a DIY job and we would recommend having a technician come out to the home in order to properly disassemble your front panel and replace the selector knob as needed. Hope this is helpful. -Matt
Hi Leslie, great question! Since the knob is missing, it
would have to be replaced and then installed. According to the post above, the
model number for your washer is GLWS1339EC. If that's correct, you would need
part number 134034902. Most parts can be purchased directly from the
manufacturer or through a parts distributor in your area (part numbers may vary
based on distributor). To install the knob, align the back of the knob to the
shaft and it should snap on. If for any reason you have difficulties you can
use the service locator option on the manufacturer site to find a tech near you
to further assist you. Thank you for allowing me to assist you.
Good Afternoon Leszek - Thank you for your question. Based on
the symptoms you are describing it sounds like the unit has a faulty timer or a
potential wiring failure. Try reprogramming the unit by either unplugging it or
flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to
wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. If issue persists,
then at this point I strongly suggest reaching out to a professional that can
accurately diagnose and repair the washer.
Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.
If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests:
* Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on.
* Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.
Check to see if any part of that knob looks broken.It may have a locking clip that you have to place on the knob first ,so that when you push it back on it locks on.The clip is very small and looks like its shapped like a U/or V
Your water level is adjusted automatically by the machine, you dont have any control over this. What yu need to see is to keep your wall faucet fully open before the wash, also check whether the pressure is good. It is normal that you see a low level thru your glass in machine............
