How good are you at judging how much water your wash load needs?

Iíve been pretty lucky or maybe skilled at eye-balling a load-size and my water level always seems to be on pointÖ

Seldom do I need to add more water or search around til I can find something else to wash or add more clothesÖ

I think Iím pretty decent,

Once I get to know the machine and see where the water levels come up then Iím pretty good, obviously I canít really fill blind

Judging water level/load size

ryner1988's profile picture
I bought these tall narrow clothes hampers from Target. One loosely full hamper is a large but not crammed in load. I pretty much only wash full loads using the super setting on my direct drive Whirlpool. If I have to wash a small load like for example a couple skirts for my wife that can't go in the main wash, I'll switch the water level accordingly.

My four daily-driver washers have automatic water level sensing.

judging water level

I listen to the agitator going back and forth and if I hear it struggling, that's not enough. I then put my hand in the machine to check that the clothes that have been placed into the machine are covered in water.
