How long is the wash portion of your cycle?
I have read many complaints about long cycle times in FL machines. I, for one, do not mind longer cycle times but I noticed that the majority of the cycles in my machine is used for rinsing and spinning. For example, the cycle I use often for washing clothes is 1:13 long, of which the fill and wash take 23 minutes and rinsing and spinning is 50 minutes (that includes a third rinse). Also, have any of you measured actual temperatures in the drum right after the fill and at the end of the cycle to confirm that the washer does what it's supposed to do in terms of wash temp? The last question is directed primarily at owners of Miele and Bosch washers - I'm curious if your washers really perform as promised.
