Sound like the hot water sonenoid is stuck in the open position. Locate this solenoid and tap it lightly with a small hammer while the hot water is open. If it does not stop it will beneficial to have this part replaced. I hope this will help.

Have you checked your hot water heater downstairs in the basement? Are you getting hot water elsewhere in the house?

The 1/2" drain line you are referring to is probably the 3/4" line from the booster heater located to the left of the pump motor. The temperature/pressure relief valve is bad.
The booster heater could be overheating (bad thermostat), or you may not have an expansion tank on your building hot water system. The heating and explanding water in the booster has no where to expand to, causing a pressure spike high enough to pop the valve.
First, change the valve. I use a heavier-duty Watts XL40 valve, I purchase them from International Commercial Supply or Johnstone. Even if there is a cause for them to leak, once they start leaking they need to be replaced.
Once the new valve is in, power up and test the unit. Power up and fill the unit, then let the booster recover until it cycles off. Run a cycle, and check your rinse temperature. I like to see 190-192 degrees. If it went higher than 195 I'd turn the thermostat down. If it didn't shut off at all, and the relief blew, time to replace the thermostats in the booster heater.

this is usually a problem with the float.
at the bottom there is a small round plastic part that moves up and down. When it is up, the washer knows that it is full. when it is down, the washer knows that it is empty.
yours is probably stuck in the down position.
usually I find that this is because the float is full of grease and junk.
mostly they are of the air-trap variety. they are open on the bottom and trap a bubble of air underneath them. If the float is full of grease, then it won't trap enough air to float. reach under with your finger and scoop out any grease.
if you don't see any grease, or it isn't open underneath, check for holes that migh be letting air out, or water in.
if it's broken, you can lift it manually (and wedge something under it) and that will at least pump it out so you can fix the float.
Don't run it very long in that condition or you will have other problems, but you can run it until it drains out.
