The pump comes on as soon as you start the machine? I'd say you have a bad MCU (main control unit). The pump is driven directly by relay in the MCU based on timing and the status of the pressure switch which is an integral part of the MCU. You could try pulling the clear plastic hose off the back of the MCU to see if that stops the pump. There is a diagnostic mode on this machine to check for error codes and a calibrate function but I don't have the exact procedure for your specific model. I have a procedure for a similar model that has 7 indicator lamps but I believe your model only has 6.

I tried pulling the hose off and plugged it back in and that seemed to work. I don't know if that was it or if it reset itself after being unplugged for 5 days. Either way thanks for the help.

If pulling the hose was the cure, you may have a gunked up air dome or clogged hose at the air dome on the side of the outer tub.
