Fill it with water by hand and see what happens. Tape paper towels in the suspected area. Makes it easier to see. Part 2 ans: so the water is over powering the drain...that sucks. You are right, the valve is probably letting too much water out. I don't know if it is adjustable but I do know it'll probably cost a lot for an itty-bitty brass valve. If money is not a problem replace the valve. If you are a DIY'er, I'd try to use some sort of clamp on the hose leading into the dispenser and close it just enough to slow the flow down. Another idea is to open the drain up by cutting away some of the screen if it has one. A better source than me is to go to repairclinic.com and email them. They have a lot more experience than me. I did appliance repair as a side to handyman for 20 years & fixed just about everything for 50. I never had any formal training.
I think I'd be checking the dispenser in the left rear for a crack or rub mark. Also the hoses going to and from the dispenser. They are plastic and fragile.if the top has been lifted or an extremely
off balance load ,one may be damaged.
You could have a number of things that could cause this problem. Most likely it will be one of 2. The first and most likely is the water valve. This machine has a series of water inlet valves and the one that activates the bleach water could be bad or just have a wire off. Second, you could have a bad timer. If the tube coming from the dispenser was stopped up then you would have an over flow from the dispenser.
check the holes of the dispenser, could be clogged with soap and liquid detergent. check the hose where the dispenser flows to the drum, it could be clogged also. open the door, trace the dispenser hose that is attached to the drum or to the big rubber gasket at the front. check and see if there is dirt accumulation or soap clogging the hole.
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
when u replaced the sensor was it the round one that has a clear pipe going to it if ti wasnt u will need to replace it if it was then take the clear pipe off and blow down the pipe this will reset the wayer pressure sensor and should stop the washer from overflowing m8
