After any program, including if I just soak some clothes and run an 8 minute centrifuging at full speed 1400rpm, somehow the washing cycle does not empty the tub. I know this, because, the next time I start a program, whether a full wash or just centrifuging, within the first few seconds, it let's out quite some water, I would guess 0.2 - 0.5 liters.
Is this an error, or is this normal behavior?
I believe this machine is of high quality amongst consumer washing machines, though around 8 years old. It's a Miele Novotronic W 1513.
As an experiment, I tried putting the drain hose into the shower, so that it sloped down all the way. The hose leaves the machine at the very top of the machine. This did not make a difference.
