I think my machine is insane.  I returned home to find floor wet around washer after roomamte does a load of wash. Clothers inside still wet and water still in the machine.  I decide to investigate, start load over at  beginning of cycle, it seems to run OK till end and then begins leaking out bottom of front door causing flood. It continues to fill with water. I try to shut off washer, but have to unplug it to stop input of water. I open the door and more water pours out. I figure the pump to empty it has broken. Do research on Web find Appliance Sensei I can study with. Read posts, Take out Pump and test with 120. It runs fine.Start again at the beginning with notebook in hand to notate unusual behavior. It seems to run OK till it finishes spin cycle (washes, pumps out OK, door seal light on, spins) but then it begins filling up with water again (oddly the water is hot even though I have wash and rinse set to cold). Door lock light does not come on. Again water will not stop by moving the dial to off, or pushing On/Off button.  I must unplug to prevent flood.Apparently this has been a well behaved Neptune by all standards for the nine years we have lived together. I think it has become possessed. It is not hooked up to the Internet so I don't think it has a virus.Any wisdom would be appreciated by your humble student.

Pretty much the only thing that'll cause this is the control board. Cost is around the $200 mark - your call as to whether to invest that money into the machine. I've heard of this happening before.

Machine control board is suspect, but I'd like to see the wiring diagram to see if there's anything else that could keep voltage on the fill valves.

3D, you have the wiring diagram in the control console of your washer. If you can't scan it in and post a copy in this thread, fax it to me at 775-416-4449 and I'll post it.
