After the clothes are done, I open the lid and the clothes

Customer Question

After the clothes are done, I open the lid and the clothes are still in a full tub of water. The cycle indicator is at the end of extra rinse even though that button is not pushed. If I turn the dial back to spin and change the speed to delicate fast or slow regular it will then spin again and empty.
