This is a Duet Front Loader washing machine. The leak appears to be coming from the panel joint on the right side of the casing. Water is on the floor and some is also present in the drawyer underneath the machine. It is not leaking at the door. All hoses and connections on the back are dry and tight. The only spot where moisture can be seen is on the right side of the casing.
There is at most a few ounces of water on the floor per cycle but it appears to be getting worse.

If you have the same problem that I did, then the clamp on the drain hose has slipped, allowing the drain hose to slide down just enough that it leaks water when the washing machine is in the drain cycle. I fixed this problem on my front loader by taking a large hose clamp (the ones that have the screw to tighten them with) and replaced the original clamp. That solved the leak problem for me. If you take the back off of the washing machine, and start a wash cycle, you can see real quick were the water is coming from.
empty the washer. then remove the bottom panel of the machine.put some water in it and see if the water is leaking when it is filling or full.I have seen a small hole in the tub just behind the bottom counter balance where the mounting bolt goes you may need to use a small mirror to look under there.
Take the bottom panel off the waher, put water in the machine, and watch to see where it is leaking. If you don't see a leak during the regular cycle, put the machine in drain and spin mode, and watch for leaks there. You should find your leak during one of these cycles so you will know what part you need.
The water level in a front loader should always be below the door line so consequently it should not be possible for water to leak out the door unless there is a problem with the actual door seal itself.
However if you are using too much, or incorrect type of detergent, the washer may be producing too much suds. Too much suds can cause door to leak.
Other causes of a leak which appears to be coming from the front but is on fact coming from elsewhere:
Check the water inlet hoses.
Check the drain hose.
Check the standpipe (upright drain pipe used instead of a sink), or the wash sink connections. These will often be the actual source of a leak. When they leak the water can roll under the washing machine and appear at the front.
Also check this link for a good description of how to troubleshoot leaks happening at various stages during the cycle.
your just seeing the water that is leaking dureing the wash cycle unplug washer there will be 2 screws on the header panel 1 on each side take them outgently pull header panel to you then flipupunplug wiring harness thas to the cabnet there will be 2 clips 1 on each sideuse a flat screwdrive and pry back they will come out tip cabnet back to you the whole thig will come off look at the pump in the front it has a weep hole in it see if it has been leaking from there
Water sprayed out of ( the leaky washers in the hot water shut off valve which need to be replaced. They are inside all valves and wear out in time from normal use! Or you can have a bad solder joint at the junction between the hot water shut off valve or the the pipe joint! these washers in any shutoff valve can leak intermittently till they get worse and then leak all the time! you should be able to stand there and watch it as you open and close the shut off valve again and again , and then stay there and watch it start leaking! Or when you are opening it and closing the valve 4 times straight you may feel a trickle of water from the valve stem!!!! This means washers in the valve stem need to be replaced!!! Get a new plumber !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm no plumber but I do under stand this!

Take the front panel off of the washer, and run it through a cycle. Watch to see where the leak is coming from. Also, pay attention to the drain in the wall when it is in spin/drain. If this has a blockage in it, it might be backing up causing water to come back out of it.
If you see no leaks the next time you run it, it's possible that it splashed over while spinning because of the off balance load and may not happen again unless it becomes off balance again.
