check that there is a small tube in the area as it is around that spot that the pressure hose goes up to the water level selector switch
otherwise use a short metal thread screw with a fibre washer under the head to plug the hole
you can get screws as short is 3/8 to 1/2 " and thick in diameter to fit into the hole
too long and it will bind up on the wash tub

Unplug or disconnect power to the machine and access the electronic control board. Remove the screws in the back of the top panel, then lift the back of the top panel and slide back to remove.

The electronic control board is located on the left side near the top. It's very common for that part to fail. Look on the back side for a burned or scorched mark near the relays.

Measure the resistance between P1-3 and P1-4. If the resistance is between 1-6 ohms, replace the control board. If not check the belt switch for continuity.

Check the motor windings at the motor switch. Disconnect the motor connector. Measure the run/main windings between the blue wire in back and the white/orange wire (2.4-3.6 Ohms). Measure the start windings between the blue wire in back and the Violette wire (2.4-3.8 Ohms).

Lift the idler pulley up and measure between the two blue wires to check the belt switch.

the main board might be damaged due to the damp and cold. the boards don't like wet and damp places as it can damage the copper on the boards causing them to go green and be eaten away, you may be able to repair the board using bridges and repairing the damage.

what you are describing is not due to the leak. There are no fuses in the unit to protect the valves. The fuses protect the whole machine and if they failed, the unit wont power on at all. There is a control panel board on the front and a control board inside the unit near the back top. Check the connections sounds like when the tech cleans the valves that he is wiggling connections that fail later again.

issue him with a written notice of the tear ( also take a photo) so that he cannot blame you for the problem
It is not your fault but normal wear and tear for a machine that old
It sounds like he is trying it on so that you have to fix it
unfortunately it is his machine and repairs are his responsibility regardless of how rough or careful you are
if push comes to shove talk with a lawyer

No I am afraid not sorry

Sounds like someone may have "hung" on the door whilst it was open, which bent the door or the hinge.
Some hardware stores or appliance stores sell a foam rubber strip with an adhesive backing, wherein you peel off the adhesive cover and stick it on the whatever you want.
Perhaps you could try a piece of sticky-backed foam stuck to the front of the machine or to the door to see if the water will slow down.
God bless your efforts.

The dispenser has three hoses that lead to it. They flush the detergent and softener out when it fills. The hoses to the dispenser can break or come loose and then water runs out of the machine. If the dispenser drawer pulls all the way out, remove it and look in the slot to see if any hoses are loose.

ND No Drain Machine control board monitors water level in washer during and at the end of pump out. If wash level does not reset pressure switch, it will see water left in the washer. 1.Check for pump/drain restriction. 2.Check pump operation.
3.Check pressure switch for open contacts.
4.Check inputs and outputs at machine control board.
5.Replace responsible component.
