I have a question about how the washing machine works. When the washer is filling with water and someone in the house turns on a faucet, I see a big decrease in the flow of water into the washer. I know the cycles are on a timer, so does that mean that the water in the washer will be less when it moves to the next cycle, or is there a way that the machine regulates the volume of water within that cycle so that it is always the same before it cycles to the wash cycle? I have read a little about the water level control switch, but if the washer takes too long to fill, say if someone is watering the lawn while it is filling, will it cycle to the wash before it is full, or will it wait until it is full and the switch is activated before it starts the wash cycle? My machine is a Tappan Heavy Duty model #46-2351.

** Tappan Heavy Duty model #46-2351 **

That model number is incomplete, did you get it right off the appliance's model and serial number identification tag?

** I have read a little about the water level control switch, but if the washer takes too long to fill, say if someone is watering the lawn while it is filling, will it cycle to the wash before it is full **

As explained at the following link, on models which use a water level control (aka. 'pressure switch'), no, the control will not advance from fill into wash (agitate) until the full water height is reached... however long it takes.

- How does a washer's water level control work?

Thank you for your reply

I couldn't find the plate with the model and serial #s. I got the model # off the yellow energy tag in front

That tag rarely lists the complete information.

** I couldn't find the plate with the model and serial #s. **

You can find tips for locating that identification tag on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my web site linked below.
