Yes you are right, i had not even thought about that the instructions do not include stop and wash. I saw that as kind of common sense and have used a quick wash between bleach and fix, and also a good wash before the stabilizer. As stop i have used both a weak acetic and citric acid solution, but i think it does not do much more good than just plain water.
