Customer Question
it only gets a few...
Just noticed that when our washer goes into the rinse cycle, it only gets a few inches of water in it. It used to fill up completely. Even when I hold the level button over to reset, no more water will go in. This is an "old" washer, not the kind that judges the amount of water needed depending on the weight of the clothes. What might be the problem? Being down here in Beaumont, Texas (near Houston), we can't even get an appliance repairman right now so, if I can find out what might be the problem, I'm going to fix it myself--I'm a mechanic by trade. Thanks.
