Outstanding - thank you.
I think the reason the water fills in sharp bursts is because of it's energy efficiency and works in tandem with the 6 motion system. The pattern varies according to the wash program and the load volume. All very clever stuff.

Mine arrived today, installed myself with no issues, nor to my floor. Even dragged the thing across the house myself ;-) I wanted to test the machine so I tried 4 pillow cases on the allergy care thing (steam) the machine set itself to 3 hours 11 minutes, for the next 5-10 minutes it done nothing apart from occasionally spin a bit (single spins, minutes apart). No errors or anything, and nothing else going on inside. So I'm unsure what thats all about. I cancelled the cycle and put it on a fast wash 30mins, no problem and away it went. Certainly does take in water differently to my last, in sharp bursts whereas my old machine would just make a "filling up" noise. I will close of my valve a bit to see if that helps. If someone could shed some light on the steam attempt I made It would be helpful. Also done a medium sized mixed load, definitely better than my old machine, clothes noticeably cleaner / nicer smelling, I suspect my old machine was not heating up the water or atleast not to correct level. It did make a hell of a racket once up-to 1400rmp but I quickly adjusted the front two feet, tomorrow I will properly balance it with a spirit, even though it's on hard tiles and had no give or wiggle, clearly the smallest imbalance can make a big difference in accustics. Overall more silent than previous machine, but I will report back when I have sorted the feet. P.S. the included spanner may as-well be made of cheese, POS. Bahco <3
