NOT ENOUGH WATER TO WASH
Is amount of water in the tub insufficient?
■ Front-load washing machines use a “Drop by rotating force system” in which water soaked
laundry is tumbled and brought to the top then dropped to the bottom of the tub forcing water
and detergent through the fabric for a thorough cleaning as opposed to agitator-type washers
brushing water against the surface of clothing’s fabric only. Therefore, in order to operate to
maximum performance front load washers are designed to require less water for washing.
■ There is a substantial gap between the stationary plastic tub enclosure and the rotating
stainless steel drum enough to fill a gallon or so of water adding to the quantity absorbed
by the load.
■ Since less water is being used, it helps with water conservation.
How to fix
■ Although the water surface cannot be seen in the tub as the laundry is soaked with water, the
washing gets properly done allowing detergent soluble water to drive through clothing’s fabric.
