    Default Can I raise the water level in a Duet washer

    My wife and I just bought a new Duet pair. The washer is a WFW9200SQ. I don't think it washes with enough water. I had a Maytag Neptune and it washed great with several inches of water at the bottom of the tub for the clothes to slosh through. Yes, there was a severe mold problem and finally the washer just quit after six years, but it washed great and dog hair always came out.
    I am hoping there is a way to raise the water level during washing in this Duet just an inch or so to get a better sloshing action. Can the float or sensor be adjusted?
    Thanks.

    No, Unfortunately it can't be adjusted so it lets more water in the tub.

    It should wash fine though, mine does good and gets the clothes real clean.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Yes I have to admit that it does a very good job of cleaning and rinsing out the soap. It just leaves a small amout of dog hair, and the dryer gets most of that out. I guess we were just spoiled by the Neptune. We never saw any dog hair in our clothes when we had that setup.

    Yes, I agree the Neptune's were excellent with getting all the pet hair out, but like you said, The Neptune had a variety of flaws, like the mold issue, motor/motor controller issue, motherboard issue, door switch issue, etc.

    The Duets have no issues per say, and are far superior mechanically, and should last alot longer than 6 yrs.
