Since I had this machine, I really didn't pay attention to the wash action and when I really looked inside the clothes really move from the front to the rear as if it was a Spirolator wash action agitator!

Touble Speed

georgect's profile picture
It kind of looked like, during the wash cycle, that the tumble speed fluctuated.

It looked like there was a slow roll at first and then stepped up to where there was more of a tumble or drop of the clothes.
I didn't notice a difference in the rinse cycle speeds.

Am I right in this assumption?

Oh yeah...Thanks for another WaveTouch video...I love your vids.

Tumble speed

It does fluctuates during the prewash cycle but very consistent during the main wash I think?!

Posting these vids are a bitch to upload, up to 6 hours for this one!

Great video action there, looks a good wash action with the vario speed, have you used the woollens / delicates programme yet....what was your reaction to the fast spin?? was it very much dryer than a TL

Cheers, Mike

Hey Lawrence seems it has a longer dwell time at the end of the wash phase.
What detergent are you using ?
How long do's that light stay on for ?
Nice Video !

Darren K,

I'm using low budget Era, Tide is off the list until I get back to work and the light stays on for 3 minuets.


It does squeeze out more water than a top loader but the same result can be achieved with an 15 minuets spin on delicate in a top loader go figure?!?

I use delicate for curtains at least twice a year and it tumbles and pauses in a slow motion.
I guess I need to do a vid on that cycle LOL.

As for the fast spin, my reaction is when the tub is going to fly out of the cabinet!
What really shocked me is the step spin is fast. The first minuet goes into high spin and the last 5 minuets goes into Maximum!
