As most of you with this machine know, on the Sheets/Towels cycle, it mostly fills through the dispenser. The problem with this is that, when the tub assembly settles down and the water is landing in the catch funnel, some of the water spills over the edge of the funnel, and onto my floor. Short sections of the first video show the water landing in the catch funnel, and the amount of water filling. JasonL or bobbyd321, has this ever happened to you? Do you think that this problem could be fixed by a service call, or a replacement? I also noticed that that my tub assembly is slightly off-centre with nothing in the drum, kinda closer the the back-left corner by about 1cm or so.

Thanks in advance!

BTW, I'll try to finish uploading the rest of the videos tomorrow, as some people have requested I do a larger load to show the rollover better

How long does this thing take to fill anyway?

It has happened to me, but only because we have such high water pressure. Turning down the water pressure a wee bit solved it completely!

Yes the Cabrio/Oasis does take a while to fill... damn 4.5 cf tub :D

Great videos! Thanks for sharing them. Do the other cycles use as much water?

fill time

wow it sort of does take a long time to fill, however why dont they (kenmore/whirlpool) make the funnel opening bigger and more holes to allow better water flow.

Looks like a rust problem waiting to happen

Over the course of time it looks like rust will be a problem for these machines, even ones that the funnel doen't overflow. Constant drops splashing out on the inside of the cabinet is probably going to be a problem. I think it might not be a bad idea to put some kind of undercoating on the inside of the cabinet.
