If you find that your cloth washing machine is underfilling, the problem may be related to low water pressure or water-level switch. If you follow the steps given below, we believe that you will be able to resolve your cloth washer problem with little to no money.

  1. 1 Repair it free: Find if you have warranty for your washing machine. If you bought your cloth washer within one year, it is most likely that you have warranty. Most appliance manufacturers provide one year free warranty. If you have warranty, call the company and get your washing machine fixed. If you do not have warranty and do not want to spend too much money, you will have to spend some time to identity and possibly fix the problem. The steps below will guide you through the process of identifying and fixing the problem.
  2. 2 Water pressure: Check if the water pressure at your home is normal or not. Also, check if water pressure in the inlet water pipe that supplies water to the washer is normal. If you do not have normal water pressure, your cloth washer may not fill fully.
  3. 3 Water-level switch: The water-level switch monitors the water level during filling cycle and signals the water to turn off when it is fully filled. In general, the water-level switch is a diaphragm device with a clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the outer tub. The air pressure in the tube increases with the rise in water level in the inner tub. The water level in the tub and the air pressure are proportional if the water-level switch functions correctly. However, if the switch is faulty, it may prematurely send signal to shut off water. This will result in underfilling. You need to replace the water-level switch in this case. Call a qualified appliance repair technician to replace the water-level switch.
