Recheck the door hinge install. Sound like the hinge is not installed properly leaving a gap on the hinge side. There are sometimes notches or hooks on the hinges that need to be in holes or cutouts on the washer body for proper fit. if the hinge is not in the holes right it will stick out from the body and leak.
It's mechanically reversible, but requires a right-hand hinge cover plate (not included with basic purchase) in order to fit properly. The RH hinge cover is part number W10181197. The reversal instructions are supplied by whirlpool when you order the door reversal kit.
If you can't find the hinge cover or whole door reversal kit, or just don't want to buy it; you could trim the LH hing cover by hand, or leave it off and cover the hole into the interior with some tape or something
Your model of washer could have either type of motor fitted.
It is a FHP motor, it will say so, if it is a GDA motor, you will find no name on it.
Also the FHP type brushes are in holders that are secured by screws, whereas the GDA motor carbons are push in type holders, so it should be easy for you to identify which type is fitted.

Open the door fully. Remove the door by unscrewing the two screws in the hinge. You will need a T20 star bit/screwdriver for that. Place the door face down on a flat surface. Remove the 6 screws (Phillips) holding the inner door ring. Starting from the hinge side, gently prize off the inner ring. Its a bit like taking the lid off a Tupperware. Remove carefully and take the glass and the pespex window out. With a pair of fine plyers gently remove the brass pin holding the door latch assembly in place. TAKE NOT OF THE POSITION OF ALL THE PARTS. Note that the brass pin has a ridged section and the orientation of the catch and spring. Remove the handle from the front of the door and replace. Rebuild in reverse order. Getting the pin back in is tricky. First line up the pin and the handle and the spring. Push in the pin using a gentle twist and push motion. When one side is in place ease the metal catch under the sping and line up with the pin. Once all thats in place keep twisting and pushing the pin until about 3mm is showing. If at this point you are tempted to take a hammer to it, either call a service engineer or retire to the pub for a couple of hours. Next is easy. Put the perspex window in place (convex outermost), sit the glass on top of it with the thicker part to the bottom. Fit the inner ring over the latch and jiggle it til all the parts sit comfortably. Tupperware the face back on, replace the six screws and refit the door onto the washer.
