how much water is in the bottom of the tub after this fills?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
The bottom tub seems full
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
is there about 2" of water?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
no about 1/2 to 3/4nch
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
ok you should have more water in this, theres not enough water so the spray is weak, you need to replace the fill valve. Part 785330this is a fairly simple repair, remove the bottom panel under the door and its right there in the front,, you can order this @ thanks Bryan

Is there not a flot sensor or something how does fill time with valve work with different water pressure?
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
yes there is a float sorry, its round and on the side in the front of the tub, you can check that and make sure its going up and down freely, if so its the valve, the float looks like this, Part 943405
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

You seem tobe on to it the levels stopedby time rather than the flot. The only thinf I'm worried about is how little additional water I have to add to get to the flot level about 2 qts

Do you think this could still be the cause?

Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
yes if your float is sticking this will cause it not to fill all the way, you need to get it moving up and down freely.
