The heater or the pressure switch are faulty. Cannot tell you more without knowing the make or model number. You can empty the washer by pulling the drain tube out from behind the drain filter flap located at front bottom. Get a bucket and empty the drain tube into the bucket by removing the hole plug at the end of the drain tube.
I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "floods at the end of the cycle". Is water leaking from the washer and where from?
The mushroom float isn't a water level sensor to determine when the washer should pump out. It's a second level safety feature to prevent flooding if the washer overfills. The flow meter regulates the water level in the washer.
Your pump is obviously working and there is no blockage in the drain hose, etc as the water pumps out when you lift the mushroom float. It sounds like the pump isn't receiving a signal from the controller to pump out at the end of the wash cycle. Lifting the float bypasses the controller and runs the drain pump.
Please try the following simple test:
1. Switch the programme selector to "Off" 2. Empty a bucket of water into the bottom of the washer 3. Turn the programme selector to any wash cycle 4. Press and hold the Reset button (start/stop) for at least 3 seconds.The washer should drain.
Please try this test and let me know if the washer pumps out. Please can you also be a little more specific about how and where the washer is flooding.
This is could be caused from several issues. First I would try changing cycles on the timer to another spin cycle to see if that let the washer drain. Some times the timer malfunctions and doesn't allow the washer to spin. If this doesn't work and you can hear the motor running then you could have a broken belt or bad clutch or a wig wag (electric solenoids that operate the transmission.). The easiest way to empty the washer if it's located near a floor drain is to remove the drain hose from the drain and lay it on the floor near the drain. The water will run right out of the machine. If you not near a drain then you can use a Wet / Dry Shop Vac, remove the paper filter from inside the Shop Vac and then your ready to vacuum out the water. You will need to empty the vac several times. Or you can use a garden hose and siphon the water out by place in one end in the washer and the other end outside or near a drain, You will need to **** on the end of the hose that's near the drain or outside. This will almost guarantee you a mouth full of laundry water so be careful if you try this.
My first thought Lid switch gone bad. This washer has a motor which reverses. The motor is a double shaft design. 1 end of that motor drives the transmission and the other end drives the pump. When moving in one direction the tranny agitates them clothes and the water cannot be repelled out of the washer. On spin cycle the motor goes opposite directione and tosses out that water while spinning the drum. Later models have a fancy spin pawl which allows them pump to empty that water and lessen the strain on the motor. If that safety lid switch don't act right then them washer will be dead in da water during dat rinsing cycle. Now here is a wondermous vido i found on dat new fangled world wide web from repair clinic the most wondermous site to buy them parts for this washer.
Clean out or replace the tube running from the water level switch in the backsplash to the washer tub. It tends to plug up with gunk right where it attaches to the outer tub. When it gets plugged, the washer can not tell if the tub is empty or full.
Check for power at socket using a lamp. If nothing, check the breaker for that circuit in the house electrical panel--push OFF, then ON. If now get light, try the washer again. If you get a loud hum from the machine, it may be a locked motor. Pull the plug again and check the motor. The tub can be drained by lowering the end of the drain hose below the interior water level.
