As I have been running the Miele W1 washer and T1 dryer more, I have gotten the message in the Miele App for both the washer and the dryer that the cycle times have been updated for the load in process.

I understand how the dryer senses the moisture in the clothing. The PerfectDry system does remarkably well. Clothes come out much softer than in my gas LG.

I am wondering how the washer senses and makes updates to the cycle time. Almost always the cycle time will decrease but a few times it has increased. I understand how options or a cold / cool wash temperature would add time or extra rinses. However, that would be factored in at the start of the cycle. I am just curious if there is any other sort of sensing the W1 uses to adjust the cycle time.

The W1 you have (as far as I know) uses absorbency and timing of absorption for load size sensing.

Bigger load absorbs more water, smaller load less.

Cycle time adjustments also happen during rinsing if interim spins fail or other issue make more rinsing necessary.

One thing to keep in mind is that some cycles have limited load sizes - those might add time if certain load sizes are sensed.
