Question about Kenmore 22442 Top Load Washer
The only reason that could happen is if the water level switch hung up, at least that time.
The water level switch is in the consule and is connected by a plastic tube to the bottom of the tube. When the washer fills it builds up pressure in that line and causes the switch, which is electrical to switch from filling to agitating.
It may or may not repeat the problem again, at least not soon.
To ease your mind, it may be prudent to replace the switch, since it might occur when your not around the machine, causing a flooding problem.
One trick I learned long ago is o take the model number and call your local appliance parts house and ask how many of that particular switch were sold in the last 90 days.
If it's a commonly sold item then replacing it would be the proper thing to do.
If not, then you'll have to decide whether to wait it out to see what it will do.
However, water can cause a great deal of damage to a house and that should be your deciding factor.
