Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Sorry to hear that you are having this trouble. Have you tried unplugging your appliance for 5 minutes to do a hard reset yet? If unplugging is not easy to do turning off the breaker for 5 minutes does the same thing.

I unplugged it and it is still that way. I'll try a restart tomorrow a.m. Anything else I can try then too?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I just plugged it back in and it went back into drain mode. When this was overfilling I switched it to drain and it did but is stuck there also. Sorry I forgot to mention that

ok so its in drain mode but did it drain the water?

now there is nothing left to drain but still keeps trying to drain an empty drum

sounds like the problem is more then likely with your lid switch assembly having gone bad. it doesn't know you have opened the door in order to tell the unit to stop filling or to stop draining. Do you have a multimeter to test this with?

so​ you can test this part with a multimeter to confirm it you will be checking for continuity.
