This problem can be caused by either a leaking water inlet valve, or a condition known as "siphoning". Since you just recently moved, I would make sure you don't have a siphoning problem, first. The following link explains how:
Although siphoning normally refers to a constant drain problem where a washer has problems maintaining the proper water level, it can also lead to problems where the drain line will back up into the washer.
Now, if you follow the advice in the link and determine this is NOT caused by siphoning, I would suspect that you have a water inlet valve that is leaking. A tell-tale sign will be water trickling down the fill tube in the rubber door bellow. The water inlet valves have a diaphragm that is controlled by an electric solenoid. Sometimes the valve becomes clogged with sediment or deposits, causing the diaphragm not to close properly. If you live in an area that has hard water, or use well water, you may have hard water deposits or rust build up in the valve. You may be able to correct the problem by removing the valve and cleaning it with some distilled vinegar. You can remove the valve by following these steps:
1. Unplug the washer and turn off water supply at the taps.
2. Disconnect the water inlet hoses.
3. Remove washer top panel by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel slides back, then off.
4. The inlet valve (this is what your water inlet hoses connect to) will be located in the left rear of the washer (facing from the front). Remove the dispenser hose(s) from the valve and the electric connections. Remember how the electrical connections are removed. They should be color coded. One is for HOT, one is for COLD.
5. Remove the mounting screws that hold the assembly in place.
Once you have the inlet valve removed, you can place it in some distilled vinegar and let it soak. Just don't submerge the electrical connections. If this does not correct your problem, replace the valve. Searspartsdirect.com and repairclinic.com are two notable web sites that I have frequently used. Just type in your complete model number to begin the parts search.
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Hi. Open up the back of the dryer after unplugging it. Take a deep
breath. This is not that hard. A dryer is a very simple thing but you
need to relax and figure out what the parts are. A dryer has a very
basic parts list. The obvious I will not go into with but here goes with
the electrical in the guts of the machine. A motor to turn the drum. A
heating element. A sensor to sense high temps for safety shutoff of the
element. A blower for air. Keep in mind as you look at this that usually
power wires are black or red. You will see some wires that are attached
to a sensor and then on to the heating elements. Take a test light or
volt ohm meter and see if the high temp limit sensor is bad. This can be
a simple ten dollar one from Radio Shack. That is, it will it get
continuity through it. You may have to detach the wires on this sensor
to do this test. The sensor is usually a flattened round disc with two
leads coming out of it. Test the element same as the sensor. Take the
part where there is no continuity through them to the appliance parts
store with the model and serial number of the dryer for appropriate
parts. Maybe ten bucks. I know it sounds scary but you may learn
something and if all else fails just pickup the phone and call the
repairman. Hope this helps.
