Something is blocking the drain and it can't keep up with the flow now. You can try cleaning the drain with an auger (available for not much money at home supply stores). You'll probably find a sock or lots of lint built up.

Washer overflow from drain pipe


If the water continues when electricity is discontinued the soleoid valve is jammed open, a fleck of rust or something, not designed to be repaired, it is easier and cheaper to replace. they are a standard part that fits 99% of all washers ~$10-20 at the local parts guy.

Usually only the cold solenoid has failed. it gets used more often.
If you are like me and only use cold water, swap the hoses on the taps, and swap the wire connectors on the solenoid valves, so the former hot is now cold, and you will get about the same number of years before you have to replace anything

You may have a drain line restriction causing it to back up. Pull the drain hose up about 6 inches and try it again. If it does overflow again, you will need to call a plumber to clear the drain line out in your plumbing.

My washer drain pipe is overflowing on my floor


Sounds like your drain pipe is restricted or clogged. Try using a "Pipe Snake" to unclog.

Water overflows from drain pipe


2 ins is rather small and there may also be a partial blockage somewhere in the system you are not aware off.
a naughty cure is to restrict the drain hose of the machine so water comes out a bit slower
