I tried a slightly different approach on the fill rate problem in that I switched my cold water supply to the hot water inlet connection at the washer and the fill rate was significantly improved. THe fill level is still too high and will not stop unless I cut of the power. I also got the unit to go into a final spin cycle and there was no unusual noise in the transmission area. I did not try to get it to agitate however. If anyone has some info on which device regulates the fill level or is it on the solid state panel ? I would appreciate your help.
