    No it's not, they are designed to shut off when the door is opened. Everything stops when the door is opened and resume when you close it. You may need to add something to the wash or forgot to put detergent or whatever go ahead.

    It's fine for mine. It just stops when I open it and restarts when the door is closed.

    YEAH, Do you want the water to go everywhere? Depending on the kind of washer it may break the timing.
