SOURCE: Bath tub drain
You need to replace the overflow cover with the lever on it.You can replace the entire piece or just the faceplate.There is a spring on most of these that holds the lever in place when thrown and that is the piece that is broken causing your issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

At the base of the plug there is normally a stud with a thread on it to allow you to raise and lower the plug so that it seals or empties.
If that is not how your oulet is made then there is a lever behind the or to the side of the outlet underneath the sink, that also is adjustable on most sinks.
Sometimes it is via a spring clip which rusts and loses its grip

Check your main vent line for obstructions (animals, nests, leaves, etc.) and then have your drains inspected. There is likely a "log-jam" (pun intended) in the sewer drain line - as it is not allowing the water to drain as fast as the washer pumps it out.

Taking apart can be expensive and hard. Here is how to do it.
1-Remove your tub lining
