Hi just read your posting.Now the 1st rinse cycle is always a spray rinse when the machine is set at the factory.If you follow these instructions then the 1st rinse will be a short spin only,with no water usage.1---Select the OPTION ADJUSTMENT MODE by pressing and holding the START/PAUSE button, then pressing the power button.Then release both after about 2 seconds. 2---Press either SPIN SPEED button to turn on the SLOW light,which is the spin only mode on the 1st rinse. 3---Once the SLOW button is lit push the POWER button to return the machine to normal mode again.Hope this helps and please reply back to let me know how you got on.We are on tank water too but thankfully we have a good bore.Looking forward to your reply and good luck.
In owner's manual, go to Machine Information/Care and Cleaning/Cleaning the Inside of Your Ecosmart for a total hot water wash fill:
Press POWER button
Press and hold Favorite button for a few seconds until you hear two quick beeps.
Select Permanent Press cycle.
Select HOT wash. (Yes, you can do this in this mode.)
Press Favorite again to store the selections.
button selection : To select an option press the button and you will see a light come on above the button. Press again to cancel and the light will go out. You cannot alter the options once the machine is running. Note : remember to cancel buttons after use!
As you look at the machine
Left hand button... Rinse Hold.. use this option to Help reduce creasing of delicate or synthetic fabrics by holding clothes in the final rinse water. The rinse hold light will flash to indicate that the programme is holding final rinse water. Complete the final spin by pressing the Rinse Hold button when light is flashing.
This is not available with Wool or Spin only programmes.
Middle Button.... Energy Save... use this option to save money and time on lightly soiled loads. This is not available with the Quick Wash, Rinse and Spin, or Spin Only programmes.
Right Hand Button .... Super Rinse... use this option for Large Wash loads and items for young children or people with sensitive skin. This option increases the water level for the first two rinses. This is not available with Cold Wash, Rinse and Spin or Spin Only programmes.

Hope it helps.
I found the manual on a website which I didn't note down, but which was very useful as it had almost every washing machine manual on the planet! Now I know that the energay saving and deep rinsing buttons are activated by pressing them in. Thanks anyhow for your attempt to help!
I have had the same problem. If you switch the machine to off and then to cotton/linen 95, then press at the same time prewash, soaking, qick wash and stain buttons for 10 seconds switch it off. When I switched it on it worked.
