Does anyone know why a washing machine could get stuck at a particular step? E.g. its happened twice - left the washing machine (non digital) washing and went to bed :)bang:), woke up like 8 hours later and the thing was stuck at the soaking step!

Hope I haven't done it any damage.. :(

water level sensor full of detergent/limescale is a usual suspect for a whole list of washing machine issues.

Ours did the same thing. I think it was the program controller.

We had ours covered on an extended parts and labor warranty though

Our old one did this, it was the switch dial thing with the settings on. A little nudge and it finished the cycle.

mine did this, it was the pump propeller stuck, when the water filled it would stop the cycle, after i removed a bit of my GF's knickers from the pump all was well again.

If you take the top off you may find the rotary control has lost some of its actuating prongs`bits of plastic`
