After two minutes of washing, my time-down counter suddenly drops off by about 15 minutes (for example, the washer starts at 115 minutes, goes down to 113 minutes and then drops to 55 minutes). If I open and close the door, the timer re-sets to the correct time (in the above example, the timer would re-set to 112 minutes). What is wrong with the machine and how do I fix it?
Check to see if your machine is connected to cold water, it should be.
The problem could be the electronic thinks the machine is always connected to cold water at about 20 degree c. if connected to hot, the time drop if the it would take to heat the water to the incomming temperture

hi shotgun - sometimes the mieles with auto adjustment functions do make changes to the wash time - usually based on a smart sensor technology.
Unfortunately I have no data or information for your particular model, I have info on earlier & the latest models only. In hindsight what this function does is adjust water levels based on the load weight or amount of the wash, the computer then calibrates the water levels and accordingly the amount of time to wash.
Eg - 4 kg load would be longer than say a load 1.5kg to process - if can understand this concept. However I cannot be 100% certain it applies to your particular model, if the user manual is availbel it may just pay to read thru in case it applies to the washer.
Measure the depth from inside the washer with a measuring tape. Start from the back of the inside of the washer towards you to the front of the washer. Measure the depth from a top loading washer from the bottom of the inside of the washer to the top. For example, a washing machine may have a depth of two feet. 2.
Measure the height inside the washer unit. The height inside the washer is from the bottom of the inside of the washer to the top of the inside of the washer for a front loading washing. The height is from one side of the inside of the washer to the other side in a top loading washer. For example, the inside of a washer may be one and a half feet, or 1.5 feet. 3.
Divide the height calculated in step 2 by two, and square it. In the example, 1.5 divided by two equals 0.75, and 0.75 to the power of 2 equals 0.5625. 4.
Multiply the number calculated in step 3 by the depth of the washing machine. In the example, 0.5625 times two equals 1.125. 5.
Multiply the number calculated in step 4 by Pi to determine the capacity. Pi is generally estimated as 3.14. In the example, 1.125 times 3.14 equals a washer capacity of 3.5325 cubic feet
Leaving the engine running for more than two minutes without releasing pressure trigger causes aluminum pump to overheat and causing damage to the purmp, resulting in sudden low pressure. (see page 9 in manual)
you dont need to reset the times, all that has changed is the soil type. in example, light, regular or heavy. that is what causes the times to change. you just need to push the options button until it shows the type of cycle you want. also make sure you have the proper cycle selected and then look to see what other options are selected. you just have too many options turned on, so look at the controls to see what is different then you remember.
