GE Front Load Washer
My laundry doesn't seem to get very clean. In fact, sometimes there seems to be an unpleasant odor (like mossy dirt) once the cycle is finished. Most importantly, over time the whites are now dingy.
I began to investigate if others had this same problem and it seems like many have the same complaint. Some even called to my attention that the water level is set so low that dirt is not really being thoroughly washed and rinsed from the clothing. It is just enough water to wet and evenly redistribute dirt throughout the rest of the load. I've observed this in my own washer. I did all of the problem checks and even ordered and installed a new pressure switch (WHX10522). The water level remained the same. About 3" in the deepest part of the tub or about 2.5 gallons of water.
How can I override/adjust the manufacturer settings in my machine to allow more water for both the wash cycle and rinse cycle? Some forums stated that this adjustment is done through the pressure switch by turning one of the four screws. I've uploaded a pic of the pressure switch. Before I begin screwing around with my washer, I need to hear from a pro.
