Problem encountered was that the replacement tub had a defective air bell. The washer consequently did not detect fill level and subsequently overflowed flooding the laundry room. The bell looked ok visually. Blowing into the air tube while plugging the inside hole with a finger revealed a pinhole leak in one corner of the PP weld. PartSelect was prompt with replacement, but the job had to be redone in its entirety.
Always test the air bell before installing an outer tub.
