Update on washer... the guy that we bought the washer from was here this afternoon - he did what he needed to do to find out what was causing the problem with washer, since it wasnt stopping filling the washer - or moving to the next cycle.
Yep, I thought something was wrong, and I was right! It was the "load" switch that controls the amount of water that is suppose to go into the machine. He didn't have that type of switch, so he would have to order it. He will be coming back to put it in.
Atleast I can use it.. just have to babysit the machine so it doesn't overfill... good excuse to clean the bathroom... for now :))
