I put a normal sized load into the washer and the water just kept coming. I turned everything off, turned the machine (only) back on to complete cycle and drain then turned water back on and it stopped like it should've the first time. What caused this to happen and what do I do to prevent this from happening again?

Here is a part breakdown of your appliance: Model LTE5243BW0

If you were able to stop the water by turning the timer off it usually means the water valve is ok. If you had to turn the water valves on the faucet off to stop the water then it could be a bad water valve.

I would start with checking the pressure tube that goes from the side of the tub up to the water level switch. Check for the ends falling off, small holes or it being pinched. Check for anything that would affect the pressure between the tub and the water level switch.

If that looks ok then check the water level switch, you can test it with a meter for continuity, it is in the console.
