In my opinion
This would be the water level sensor as the water should not get that high were it goes over the top the sensor should cut in and shut the water off at the level you set.
The problem can create more and can be dangerous as water and electricity not good best get it looked at.

Error codes 49 and 245
Fault code 49 is water valves - usually, the stop working when the rubber diaphagm inside gets hard, so a resistance only test is not conclusive (only tells us the solenoid is OK).
- Do a cold fill and a hot fill (briefly) to check for strong water flow on both.
- Regarding code 245, does water pump out strongly?
- One more thought, because these codes are both related to the water level in the machine, remove the level sensor hose at the controller end and blow into it to clear any blockage.

Smart drive 601
If it is out of balance it will automatically return to a wash cycle to try and redistribute the clothes more evenly. Maybe the out of balance switch is faulty. More likely though is a faulty control board. If that then get a new washing machine. That model is over 20 years old. Not worth spending money on it.

My fisher and paykel 5.5kg smart drive MW51
Possibly a worn RPS, they can be sensitive to moisture. so some days they can work fine, and other days can cause the motor to stall. normally gives a fault code though (which is why I have a suspicion this fault may be in the board). if you feel like leaning the machine on it's front (emptied, disconnected of course) you could look at the motor RPS on the rear of the motor. see if it shows signs of corrosion. you will need to remove the rotor (spinning bit) to see the RPS. *(follow the wires to the RPS)
