My washer fills, then agitates, then drains out, but gets stuck draining. I can move the knob to get the machine to move to the next step in the cycle, but when it needs to drain again after the rinse, it won't stop draining. Again, I can move the knob to get it to spin out. The only issue I can detect is that the machine doesn't seem to know it's done draining. Thoughts?

  • Sometimes a confused washing machine can straighten itself out with a hard reboot: unplug, wait a full minute, plug back in. Feb 21, 2019 at 5:57
