Does this sound like a faulty float switch or the float itself? Or water inlet problem?
For what it is worth: I have a Kitchenaid KUDS01IJWH0 that developed a door leak. I replaced the door gasket (was looking old and bad; machine is ~6 years old). Leak got worse and was in different area (was at right side, now from ~center bottom and to right side. I found that this problem is due to cracked plastic "air inlet" along the bottom edge of door; apparently it's gotten old and brittle. I may have cracked it WORSE while replacing the door seal; I can't say. I taped up the cracks with some duct tape (not just tape; it is a way of life) and the leak went away. My next move is to get a new "air inlet" and install it. Installation appears to require removal of the door front panel for access to the screws that mount the "air inlet" to the door panel.
On your machine, be sure to check the float for free movement, and if you find that the float is sticky, fix that first!! I did have a sticky float at one time, and in my case the washer would not fill properly. Just as easily could fail to STOP fill, allowing some overflow. Hope all this helps you.
