Question about Frigidaire GLWS1339CS Top Load Washer
When the machine is finished with the rinse cycle sometimes it will get stuck. All the water will be gone from the tub but it continues to run and drain out of the machine into the drain, which if left unattended can be a huge waste of water. But if you advance the timer just slightly it will go into the spin cycle as it should. Could the timer be bad? Please help.
Before spending any money calling a repairman or changing parts, check the drain hose. If it is too deep down into the drain pipe then pull it back so that only about 6 to 10 inches is down the pipe. If it is too far down then it creates a vacuum which drains the water as it is trying to fill for the final rinse.

It sounds like you have a timer that has gone a little "flaky" on you. If it's only happening at the spin cycle increment, you may have a dirty contact inside the timer. Sometimes you can open them up and clean them with an emery board or some alcohol and a cotton swap. If you don't want to bother you can replace the entire timer, but they can be pricey. Good luck.

Not a bad idea to check if the loading door saftey switch (which prevents spin cycle when door is ajar or opened) is intermitently breaking contact. I do agrre with the Guru on the timer solution. Door saftey switches usually are not realated to the water still running continuously. when they go bad or the contact goes "open" the spin cycle will not work at all.
