the pressure switch is your water level selector switch remove the #15 torx screws accross the top of control panel remove clear tubing from switch and blow through it to see if restriction in tub I fill machine1/2 way then you can hear water bubble in tub then on switch there is a reset screw on back you can push to reset then drain machine let it spin for a few seconds and try again if it still does it the switch is bad

check air dome . the hose from water level switch connects to it. could be partially blocked in air dome tube.sometimes a thin long nail puhed into it clears it .or thin drill bit. check hose after removing it, air dome is at side of tub at bottom

it doesn't happen very often but I have seen something like a coin or a rag stuck in between the tubs and it will roll in front of the hole in outer tub and block it causing the restriction to over flow your''re right the machine is a pile of junk

I would take the plastic hose off the water level switch and blow a mouth full of vinegar down it to dissolve any soap residue. Also, dump a 1/2 gallon of vinegar
in the tub. Let it set for a while, then check if is now ok.
