Shutting off the machine at the first sign of overflow is one way to stop the symptom, but clearing the drrain would be an actual fix. See "the case of the refilling washing machine." The big problem in this tale is poor drain function, which will only get worse.

Washing Machine Flood Fix?

It seems whats done only solves the 1st problem, the initial fill. Then what?

Doesn't electricity need to be restored to start the wash cycle?

Then, the device would be reactivated to prevent the rinse H2O from overfilling?

Finally, wouldn't juice be needed for the rinse cycle?

Either get a new machine, or take your dirty clothes to the laundrymat. I certainly hope there's more innovation in your true vocation.
