CLEANING WITH LESS WATER
As the washer dampens and moves the load, the level of the items will settle in the basket.
This is normal, and does not indicate that more items should be added.
IMPORTANT: You will not see a washer basket full of water as with your past agitator-style washer. It is normal for some of the load to be above the water line.
