I do not think so because the quantity of water is monitored by a flowmeter and Central Control Unit. When the flowmeter registers a maximum of 10.5 gal. (40 L), and the Central Control Unit detected the

pressure switch trip, the water valves will be shut off. The pressure switch is located in the top right rear corner of the washer and senses the water level in the wash tub. The control signal from the pressure switch is sent to the Central Control Unit and is used to determine the amount of water introduced into the wash tub during the wash cycle. The flowmeter is also used to introduce additional water into the tub for higher water levels, based on cycle requirements. This is the info from the service manual, so as you can see your washer is actually pretty smart and my concern on this would be that any "adjustment" made will throw the firmware off and could potential become costly to repair. Of course I am NOT certified by Kenmore or any other appliance manufacturer so you just have my opinion...:) good Luck

+ I read through the user manual on this and couldn't find how to do it. I did find other references on the web that suggested it could be done but could not locate a way to do it, sorry. I would try a medium load with a large load setting and see if that does it. What is your actual problem?
