Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.
How much water is left in the bottom after the drains? In inches. Also when this fills in the beginning of the cycle how much water is in the bottom? And inches if you can, is it up to the heater?
I would guess it's about 2-3 inches of water. I got about 2 quarts of water out when I removed all the water, but that was removing the grate and getting all the water out.
For your second question, I've never looked in it when it's filling.
