I have 3 cycles on my machine ,normal, permanent press, and delicate. Each time the dial gets to rinse cycle, it just stops there. Knob does not advance any more. It just seems the water going into the washer is not filling to the point of cutting off. This happens on all cycles.

So when it gets to the rinse cycle it just fills with water and doesn't stop it overflows?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It does not overflow. Seem maybe the water is draining?
