I wouldn't imagine it being a computer problem, computers don't make mistakes like that. I would start with the inlet valve http://www.partselect.com/xq/aspx/Inventory.391478/qx/PartDetail.htm?SourceCode=7&ModelNum=110.44832202 and maybe the inlet valve wiring harness http://www.partselect.com/xq/aspx/Inventory.391563/qx/PartDetail.htm?SourceCode=7&ModelNum=110.44832202 for good measure. Both parts together will run you less than $100 and shouldn't be that difficult to replace. I'm am no Washing Machine expert, I just go by my common sense and Google. The computer http://www.partselect.com/xq/aspx/Inventory.971890/qx/PartDetail.htm?SourceCode=7&ModelNum=110.44832202 is $250+ and like I said I don't think the computer would cause the valve to open slowly and stay open, sounds like the vavle is sticking. Good Luck!

Try reversing hot for cold hoses and see what happens. That will test your valves, hot water pressure, etc. As far as I know, the valve screens are right where the hoses hook up.

If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.
Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
