    Default Ware level control

    Whirlpool washer
    Model - WTW57ESVW1

    How is the water level self sensing supposed to work?
    No matter what size load is put in, this machine fills with water as if it is a large load.
    My understanding is the flow meter is used to prevent overflowing if the machine cannot sense water in the tub. There is another small piece with two wires near the flowmeter. What is it and what is its purpose?
    Anything to do with water level control?
    For those who do not know, there is no load size control knob/switch on the control panel.

    A copy:
    On models with Auto Load Sensing, the washer senses the load
    size and composition through a series of fills and wash motion. It
    then adjusts the water level for the best cleaning and rinsing
    performance. It eliminates the guesswork. The water level is just
    right for every wash load size.
    NOTE:
    To ensure the washer determines the proper water level,
    do not open lid or stop the washer anytime during or after the fill.
    NOTE:
    Water may not cover the top level of the clothes. This is
    normal for Auto Load Sensing washers. For these models, the
    water fill is optimized by the system for best wash performance.

    Diagram is linked here.

    Interesting literature on this washer. Guess there is no adding to the load without the washer filling with water.
    I think I let it fill today on its own with 3 pairs of jeans while checking another washer. Not real sure about that, but it did fill to the top as it usually does. I will make a point of not raising the lid the next time.
    Can't really make the piece out I was asking about on this phone. I will see if I can find it and post it. It either just above or below the flow meter.

    Thanks a bunch Jeff.

    Update: Let it fill undisturbed twice. Once with 3 pairs of geans , once with 4 towels. Filled up each time as if there was a larger load.
    I did this outside, so not sure how level it was. Will that affect the load sensing?
    Went through the cycles ad it should. It just seems like it has only one load setting.

    In both rinse and wash?
    Take the door catch off so you can run the washer with the lid open.

    Can't be sure about the rinse.
    Will try to get around to checking again tomorrow with the lid switch bypassed

    Haven't gotten back to that one yet, but now I understand you telling me to bypass the lid switch.

    By leaving it in place and using the lid catch so we can run the washer with the lid open....I also tried this on a new GE top load washer and it also worked well with that.

    Accidentally deleted my original response. To make it short, sounds like I need to try this with two machines I have, the one that fills all the way if the lid is opened and the one the pumps the water out and starts over if the lid is raised.
    Will also try to remember to post the model number.
