Wash Cycle Time is Longer than Usual



Possible Cause What to Do
Low Water Pressure If water pressure is low, cycle time will increase due to longer fill times. Ensure that inlet hose filters are not blocked.
Out of Balance The out of balance automatic recovery setting may be selected (ie Automatic Recovery is ON).
Selected Wash Cycle Wash cycle time is approximate and may be affected by a number of factors, see 'Time to goin the CleanSmart™ Controls section of your User Guide.

When the end of the drain hose is lower than the water level inside your washer, water drains or ‘siphons’ as your washer fills.

Check the drain hose is inserted into the standpipe by no more than 20mm. The standpipe should be 850-1200mm in height. Refer to your User Guide for further information.
