Your micro switch behind your rubber pad is the problem for the flooding. When you take it apart you will see corrosion on it. Do you have a meter so we can ohm out your water-valve coil that operates your water through the door feature as well as checking for voltage at the valve from the board? Could be a bad valve or board. Depending on how much water came out it could very well be the valve if it was energized for a long time. These coils are the ones with Black and White Blue wires on them.

* If you ohm these coils, I would expect the reading to be 130-200 ohms. If they are open, thats your problem.

* If someone calls for water while you do a voltage test at the coils. A reading of 120VAC would indicate board good and the coils bad again. No voltage, we have to find out why. Chances are bad board. Loose connections, etc could play a role but it would be too much of a coincidence seeing how you flooded a day ago.
