Hello,

 

taking a quick look at :

I can see that Eco 60-40 is using less water based on how much laundry you put in, but for example the Cotton 60C shows usage of 134 liters of water.

 

Does that mean that even if I use less than maximum load, the washing machine will consume 134 liters of water?

 

Which programs are actually using less water depending on how full the machine is?

 

Thank you

Definitely not - don't worry. It will use 134 litres for a 9kg load of cottons but will definitely use less water for a smaller load. The machine senses the wash load for most programmes and the water level for all programmes. Cotton 60⁰C uses more water than Cotton Cold-40⁰C because the machine does a cooldown before the first rinse.

whats  the cooldown for on 60's cotton? - my previous hotpoint machine I had for years didnt do this cooldown where it fills up the drum with cold water just before going to 1st rinse - it just emptied and went straight to 1st of the rinses. 

What actual sensor is needed for water? - the 'weighing the load' at the beginning of the cycle or the built in normal pressure switch ? - because the machine has both , and normal washing machines just use the pressure switch to adjust the level of water in the drum at start of wash and through the wash cycle (ie if the drum needs more water added)

The pressure switch for the water. The load sensing at the start of the programme adjusts the wash time and amount of detergent and softener for the auto dose models. The cooldowns are strange on the newer Samsungs. My machine does a cooldown on a Super Speed 40⁰C with Bubble Soak. My last Samsung never did a cooldown if the temperature was 59.9⁰C or lower before the first spin. Newer ones are more sensitive (around 45⁰C or above triggers a cooldown). I do miss the hot water drains since it kept the drain pipe clean.
