New Kenmore washing machine, automatic water level question
This is a top loader, and just purchased within the last month. It has the automatic water control on it. How does this machine sense how much water should be in the tub? I just put a load of clothes into it, and when it started washing, I opened it up to see how much water was in the tub. There wasn't enough water to even cover the top of the clothes. Water level was about a 1/4 of the tub deep, and clothes were about half a tub deep. Every time I wash a load of clothes, I can open the the door and close it during the wash cycle, and it will add more water, sometimes quite a bit.
I will probably make a service call as it is under warranty, but I am curious as to how this machine sense's how much water should be in the tub.
