I have a 5 year old GE top loader washing machine (Model no.

Resolved Question:

I have a 5 year old GE top loader washing machine (Model no. WSSE5210B2WW) It runs fine until the spin cycle. At that point water starts running in at the same time as it is spinning, and then the water continues to run in even after the machine finishes spinning and shuts off. It never actually overflows -- just fills to the top. The only way I can get the water off at that point is the manual valves on the wall (I do that and put the machine back on spin to get the clothes spun out). Thanks for any advice!

Yes. I have tried unplugging the washer and replugging it in. As further info, the problem does not occur every time I run the washer -- only 1 out of every 4 or 5 times.
