I have heard that the signal volume is low and wondering if there was a way to loud-en it up?

Answer: 
Signal volume is fine for me, there is a high, low, and off setting depending on what you want. I can hear the high setting if I'm on the same floor, and upstairs if there isn't much other noise.

Answer: 
The only way that I have found to turn up the sound is to hold the Signal button until it is on the high setting. (Still not too loud - but louder than the low setting.

Wash cycle

At the beginning of any wash cycle, will the water keep running if I lift the lid up? If so that would be perfect so I can rinse out the detergent lids after filling them.

Answer: 
Have not tried, but I don't think it will start with the lid up. The lid locks shut at the start of cycle.

Answer: 
The answer is unfortunately no :( it makes you put the lid down before it starts to fill up. I am the person who asked the question I own the washer now b/c I needed a new one, so now I answered my own question obtaining a different answer than the person who answered my question. It has a lid lock that you can't override. :(

We have hard water and often it is difficult to get the soap out so I always use the maximum amount of water in the wash cycles.

Answer: 
YES! Add a gallon of water to the load B-4 the cycle begins.

It "senses" the weight of the load B-4 ,determining the amount of water to fill.Choose extra rinse,also.

I wanna know how to disable the child lock.I'll look at the schematic.

Answer: 
Not directly, but you don't need much detergent at all with this washer, and depending on the settings you can 'fool' it into using a bit more water. There is also an extra rinse option that would help you.

Answer: 
As it turns out, that is not an option. You can select Soil Level (heavy) and Extra Rinse. Extra Rinse is better than adding more water to the wash cycle because the soap is not removed during the wash cycle, but during the rinse cycle it will be.
