I have noticed an increased amount of play in the handle/lever on my multi-port valve. I just backwashed my pool and when I finished the last backwash and waste run and flipped back to filter, I get a steady stream of water continuing to flow out of backwash PVC line. Any suggestions?

If I have the correct manual, it does look like your model also utilizes the spring inside to keep everything expanded tightly.
See https://www.praherplastics.ca/documents/multi-port-valve-manual.pdf.
You might consider replacing that spring and any other O-rings/washers along that handle shaft. The Star (spider) gasket may also need to be replaced depending on what happens when you pull it apart. If you have more questions, I'm sure the folks over at InyoPools.com can help.
