Question about Hotpoint First Edition FEW12 Front Load Washer
This seems quite likely to be a fault of the WATER LEVEL SENSOR. So since the pressure activated switch is not working even when the set water level is reached the water overflows.
Drain the water out of the washer and remove the level sensor which is located on the rim of the drum which has a tube feeding water to a pressure activated switch- the diaphragm could have punctured or failed on the switch.
You can bypass the switch by shorting to see if the machine starts and works , if so change the switch.
