Hi,

My washing machine starts a new load automatically after it completes a cycle, unless I open the lid very soon after the load has completed. It also starts automatically after unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in. A few months ago the machine would drain, but not spin, so I replaced the actuator motor at the bottom of the machine and now it works perfectly, except for this issue. I'm worried that we will forget and leave the house with a load going and the machine will run indefinitely! The machine is about 1.5 years old and out of warranty. I don't have money to purchase a new washer or pay for an expensive service call (closest repair shop is 40+ miles). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
