I found this site on the net, I know this is  almost a year old posting
I ran across this same problem today, I read all the post, leading up to mine
Was the timer the culprit or was the fabric softener in the off position the problem
 thanks, this is a great site. O0

  When washer is in wash fill, the timer does not advance while filling, fill level is determined by setting of level control (pressure switch). Same applies in rinse with fabric softener switch on. With fabric softener switch off, power is applied to timer motor while filling and fill level is determined by timer, not pressure switch and this is why you get low level fill.

It's a gubment conspiracy. They (GE) does that to keep the machine 'Green'. Do not adjust your set...We control the vertical...We control the horizontal... :D The EPA controls the water level...:rofl: Leave it in 'Fabric Softener mode'...

The rinse for this unit is timed, so low water pressure situations will give you problems.  Also, the rinse level is designed to be much lower then the wash level, It is a water saving design.  If you have the rinse options like "power rinse" or "softener added", that needs to be selected.  You will get a better rinse.  But, your rinse level is going to be lower then wash level and that is normal operation for this unit.    If you have the diagram it is contact R16 on timer, "Pressure switch bypass".  Salesmen always leave this bit out when selling the unit, lol.
