What are typical load sizes and water level settings?
To avoid personal injury or death, disconnect your appliance from its power source before you start any troubleshooting or repair work. Use caution when working inside any appliance.
Here is a breakdown of typical load sizes and water level settings. For a small load water level setting, the load size should be less than 1/3 full. For a medium water level setting, the load size should be between 1/3 and 1/2 full. A large water level setting calls for a load size of between 1/2 to 2/3's full, and for a large or extra large water level setting, the load size should be more than 2/3's full.
Try to match load sizes with water level settings as much as possible. Do not fill the washer with clothes higher than the last row of holes in the tub.
Too much water can lead to poor washing because the detergent levels may not be sufficient. Too little water can cause poor rinsing, excessive linting, wrinkling, and can also cause excessive wear on clothes items. Wash similar materials together.
