My question is this: Is there a way I can bump the water fill level up at all? Another 2 inches of water makes ALL the difference with decent turn over in this machine. I can stand there while it fills and hold the water level switch in the "reset" position, but it's getting to be a PITA! The model of this Maytag is LAT5006AAE and was built in 1996. Thanks in advance....

I don't think in 1996 they had limited water fills in washing machines yet. We have a 1993 Whirlpool and the water goes up slightly past the holes in the wash basket.

However earlier we had a Maytag 1985 machine. We got rid of it because it didn't have much of a rollover during the wash cycle. Because of this I always thought Maytags were boring machines. But now that I am more educated about such matters(thanks to people here) I found that this slow wash action results in much gentler handling of clothing that is being washed.

Others may want to comment on this too...

Is there any way you can post a pic of your washer filled to its highest water level?

Some of the diaphragm switches have a spring adjust screw. Can't hurt to look.
