Question about Washing Machines
My washer overflows ,does not shut off at desired level
Make sure your pressure hose is not clogged, kinked, or cracked. If it checks out I would replace the pressure switch.

Check the pressure switch and the hose that goes to it.

Since you know about the lid and check switches, they are located under the splash (control)panel. unplug the machine and remove the screws holding the panel on. Using a meter check the switches for continuity and replace if they've gone bad.

SOME OF THESE MACHINES HAVE TWO PRESSURE SWITCHES IN THEM, ONE FOR THE MAIN WASH WATER LEVEL AND ONE FOR THE RINSE WATER LEVEL. CHECK FOR A PLUGGED AIR PRESSURE HOSE FIRST AND THEN CHECK THE PRESSURE SWITCHES.

SOURCE: Washer is over filling.
Yup! I know what's going on (the tip off was when you said, "The water does stop when I push the timer off"). See? the timer, as I'm sure you know, supplies or "directs" power to each component in the washer... kinda like a conductor does an orchestra. When you push the timer knob to "Off", you shut down the symphony thereby removing power from all of the components. Make sense?
When you set the water level and pull the knob, the level switch tells the timer that the tub is empty and request water. The timer complies and sends power to the water valve. When the water level is "satisfied", the level switch tells the timer to remove power from the valve and start the "agitation" cycle.
Here's what's happening, the level switch isn't talking to the timer. I think the part number is 22002705, but I'm not sure because I don't have the full model number. Call you local appliance retailer and provide them with the full model number to be sure, OK? Since you already have the machine apart, it'll be easy to replace...
Oh yeah, here's a picture of it... see if this one matches the one on you machine. This might confirm the part number.
And another thing, now that you've experienced a washer flood (ain't it fun?), you might want to consider getting yourself one of these. They're super easy to install and it'll provide that extra bit of insurance against this happening to you again.

first access the tech sheet and run any diagnostics it shows for the machine and if this passes,then check/change the fill switch on the control panel along with fill tube from the wash tub base if kinked or plugged

Almost went and bought a switch until I widened by search for "kenmore washer 80 series overflow" and came up with this:
Turns out that a couple weeks ago, I had a really unbalanced load that probably shook off the tubing. Anyhow, saved me a trip to the supply store AND cost. Thanks to the original poster!
