While the washer drains and spins, new water comes in
My Kenmore Elite#110.26942500 turns any cycle to heavy duty itself.
Even while the cycle is "one rinse only" the washer rinses clothes about 6 times, but each rinse takes a very short period of time. And while the washer drains and spin the water, new water comes at the same time, so the clothes are still soaked.
Manually cycles works the same way.How can I fix it?

Try pushing the start/pau botton several times,this causes the drain to start drining, when it stops and starts flashing again,push the botton again.The water needs to come down a level and sometimes it may start to spin.I've had several problems with this type of washer,But all machines do this.After you get the clothes to spin,remove them and put,draino-max gel or Rooto-rooter drain opener in drum and let it sit 1-3hrs.then run machine heavy-duty hot-water no clothes,you may have to run it several times to get all the cleaner out.the pump may be clogged with animal-hair or strings from clothes.good luck
If you take the front off in the lower right you will find a pump motor that controls the drain flow. This may defective. Use a shop vac to empty the water in washer if needs be. But remove and test this pump.
With a heavy blanket you probably have an out-of-balance condition which doesn't let the machine spin out and drain. This would keep the door lock from opening. Try hitting the Stop button twice. This should cancel the cycle and let the door lock open after a little while. Then either redistribute the load or add some items and run a Spin and Drain cycle.
