Washing Maching Cycles Confused


Hi. Just wondering if somebody might have a clue how to fix this before I call a repair person....I moved my washing machine and dryer from the first floor into the basement. I put the washer on a dolly, strapped it on and as gently as I could moved it to the basement. It did not drop or fall, but it did bump down the stairs and was tilted about 50 degrees at some points. When I got it up onto its new petestal and ran a load the cycles are now all screwed up. It fills with water and tumbles for about 2 minutes then it drains and continues to rinse over and over again. It really doesn't follow the fully wash cycle, basically moves right to an endless rinse after a brief fill and tumble. It worked perfectly prior to moving it downstairs. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Faced with that I'd open the control panel and see if any of the wires bumped loose. If everything is intact, I'd unplug / replug everything, that often works with computers. Barring that, I'll defer to someone who knows washing machines, I can fix anything if it is only slightly broken.

Problem solved!
My washing machine drain hose is lower than the actual machine, so it is siphoning out and causing the machine to continually run through the cycle. I need to lift the drain hose higher than the machine and it should run fine.
