In Topic: Siemens Siwamat xb 861 not loading enough water in Coton program

I tried 60 and 90 degree temperatures, did not notice a difference in the amount of water applied.

I don't think it is a valve problem, evidence is that the rinse cycle works fine. I notice that time is the issue, the period of time the valve opens to pull water during the wash cycle is very small, compared to my old washing machine and compared to the rinse cycle of the same machine. This might be related to some sensor issue that closes the valve quicly, I suppose.. I am not sure.

Thank you for the reply.

Clothes look like they barely get wet during the wash cycle, and soap does not seem to form foam. I noticed that clothes don't get perfectly clean after the wash cycle.

I am comparing to an old machine I used to have; under the same conditions, the old machine took more water, soap formed good foam, and clothes were cleaner.

I am just wondering, why this Siemens is taking this little, insufficient amount of water in the wash cycle?
