Display of Time Remaining Seems Long

Display of Time Seems Long on my  Whirlpool Front Load Washer

Does the displayed estimated time remaining differ from real cycle time?  Does the time displayed show one number for a long time? Does the number jump to zero?

The time displayed during a cycle is an estimate of the time to complete the load. This estimated time remaining is based on: size and type of load, cycle selection, option selection, household water temperature and pressure, and unbalanced load detection.

During conditions of excessive suds or unbalanced load, the estimated time remaining on your washer may differ from the actual cycle time. On some models a sensing indicator light will glow while the washer is revising the estimated time remaining.

 If excessive suds or an unbalanced load occurs, then the estimated time remaining may stay at one value for a long period of time, or jump to zero at the end of the cycle. To avoid long cycle times due to additional rinsing caused by over-sudsing, always use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
