Washing machine washing for 3hrs ?

Why is my machine not stopping after and cycle and a cycle actually taking 3 hrs or more. I worried about the cost . :(

Thanks

What makes you think the machine is repeating the wash cycle? Is it actually doing that, or is it simply taking a long time to complete the normal wash cycle?

Low water pressure or a blocked drain filter may cause the machine to slow down.

It appears to be running through its normal cycle just seems to take so much longer to do it ?

Time how long it takes to fill with water. Do the same as it empties. If it takes much longer than a minute, examine the associated filter for obstruction.

There is little else a DIY forum can offer as advice, but if the cycle is just taking longer, it probably won't be using more electricity or water. However, if it is taking longer, then the fault needs repairing because of the increased risk of fire or flooding.
