How do you get the water to stop overflowing? If it will stop by turning it off at the timer you have a bad pressure switch or pressure tube. If you had to turn the water off at the wall (the timer wouldn't shut it off) you have a bad water inlet valve.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

Pressure Switch Tubing may have a crack, became brittle, or clogged.

If the Tubing has ever been disconnected,

the Washer must be completely empty of water before re-connecting.

Did you have the cabinet off by chance recently. If so you may have the pressure tube caught/pinched in the back of cabinet. If so reposition tube towards the cut  out directly above the water inlet valve. Not that I have ever done this before.
