How to stop playing running animation when character hits a wall in godot ?

Hi Everyone, I am making a 2d platformer in Godot engine. I have came across on issue.
In a lot of platformers when you try to run and you are on a wall the character plays idle animation. I wanted to implement this in my game. I tried to code that when I am on a wall
play the idle animation

if is_on_wall():

But when I run this when the player is on a wall it plays the idle animation but it only the first frame
I also tried this:
if velocity.x == 0:
But is still plays the running animation because I am using a else statement for running animation

Can Someone help me with this?

I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that the code $"idle") is being run in the _physics_process() function. If that’s true, then first check for whether the animation is playing. If not, then play it:

if is_on_wall() and $AnimatedSprite.animation != "idle":

I tried this out and it worked but the problem was it only played the first frame of the idle animation

Hmm, does the animation not loop? Is that expected? Or rather, would it be fine if the “idle” animation looped?
