Its past the witching hour. Day off tomorrow. So am up late doing nothing particular. Had put laundry in the washing machine and forgot about it. Went down to take it out and found that the machine had not drained and was stuck mid-cycle. So opened the machine door scooped out what water i could, took out the washing, drained the machine via the valve at the bottom. Put washing back in, put machine on spin. Now it seems to be draining and isn't getting stuck.
