I had a problem similar to this but i was getting an error code on my display. it turned out the board was bad. you may want to try to do this yourself because it cost me almost double when the repair man came. i don't remember the part # but you could search it. i believe you just remove the front face of the washer also. to unlock the door there is a release switch in the bottom near the door handle. if you have a pedestal you have to remove the drawer or remove the bottom panel if you don't.

2) if do not obey press and hold END OF CYCLE, wait about 10seconds
3) reset the machine unplugged from wall by 45 minutes, and then plug again, and turn on and unlock the door

I have a WF220, 1200 spin washing machine (3.5 years old and very little use) which does not complete the washing cycle. Each light comes on as the programme progresses until all the lights are lit...


You may find that the internal filter is blocked & that by stopping and starting the machine you are giving it extra time to complete the drain cycle. The filter is located at the bottom rear of the machine & is secured by a large hose clip to the bottom of the drum. Try filling the washer with no clothes in & then switching to the drain programme to see if the water drains properly
