Customer: replied 7 years ago.
auto load sensing guages amount of water in the tub small load small amount of water...but it fills to the top with all loads...opening the top would effect the filling so I did not open it but it still filled the tub full... no way to override this feature manually

no way to over ride the feature ,but it should not fill all the way every timer.
