So I have tried to pin point the problem and this is what I have come up with.
If you are standing behind the washer the leak is coming from the top right hand side. I see a bellow leading from the dispenser (I believe) and to the drum and off to the left of that is a hose leading to the drain hose assembly and drum. I think one of those is leaking because when I had back off of the washer and I ran it that is were the water came from and that is were it is most wet. I have disassembled the control panel so I can see this from the top but when I ran the washer twice after I thought I had found the problem but it didn't leak at all.

Re: leaking from the back
Although my knowledge og the LG machine is limited i can tell you I remember there being an issue with the water backing up through little sensors(mushrooms they were called because of there shape), there are 2 of them on the top; of the drum area and can be pulled right out, they merely "float" up nad down and overtime become "stuck" form the soap suds building up around them , so if you lkoacet them and pull them out, simply clean them off and sorrounding hole in which they came, you should be fine, also very important that yo uuse HE deteregent.HE detergent is specifically formulated asnot to suds up causing these problems. hope this is helpful

If it is antifreeze could be a head gasket, cracked head, leaking heater hose. If it is water then your rain drainage around the wiper linkage is plugged up. If it is washer fluid you have a break in the washer fluid line. Someone who knows what he is looking for is going to have to put his hands and eyes on the car
This is caused by the Anti-Flood device at the base of the machiene being activated. This device detects water leaks and is a polystireene float / micro switch that puts the machiene in pump out mode only. You need to determine where the leak comes from (pipe or perforated hose pin hole or pipe clamp etc.) If you tilt the washer and some water comes out from the bottom it is a clear indication that there is a small leak.
The fill hoses : These are located behind the washer and are connected to the water mixing valve and faucets. Pin holes and cracks on the hoses may cause them to leak.
The water valve: The water mixing valve is located behind the washer. The fill hoses connect to the water mixing valve. Inside of the valve is that the water gets directed to the filling spout. Water leaks happens when the valve develop pin holes or cracks. Bad fill hoses or water valve could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.
The Filling spout: Is just a directing part, this part directs the water from the water valve to the tank. Pin holes and cracks is what make this part to leak.
The tank : The major cause for the tank to leak is through holes or cracks that the tank develops because of vibration or metal items hitting the tank during the spin cycle.
The tub seal : The tub seal is made of rubber, it is connected between the transmission post and the center of the tank. Leaks developed when the seal gets worn out and it looses the ability to make a good seal between the transmission and the tank. A crack tank or worn out tub seal could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.
The overflow tube : This tube is use to direct the water away from any electrical parts like the motor in case of an overflow cause by a bad water mixing valve or bad water level switch.
The pump : The pump job is to remove the water from the tank to the drain pipe. This pump has an electric motor and an impeller. When the pump motor is turning, any water that falls in to the impeller, is push out to the drain pipe.
Most leaks are cause by a worn out seal between the front pump housing and the rear one.
The drain hose : The drain hose is made of hard plastic and some times it develops pin holes and cracks leaks. Bad pump or drain hose could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.

It sounds like you have a leak somewhere around the door bellow. This is the rubber boot that seals the wash tub to the door frame. Pull the folds back and inspect around the entire perimeter of the rubber. You could have a small rip or tear somewhere. There are a series of small holes in the bottom of the bellow that are supposed to be there. This is the allow any standing water to drain back into the wash tub. If you cannot find any obvious signs of leaks, remove the lower panel under the door. This is accomplished by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Start the washer on a normal wash and watch for any leaks. If the door bellow leaks, the front counterweight (usually a concrete block) will begin to get wet and drip. This could also be an indication of the bellow clamp around the wash tub being loose. If the leak starts to pool under the washer and run out the front, this is usually an indication of a drain pump leak or drain line leak. Please inspect the washer with the panel removed and the washer on a load and post back and let me know. Go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature for a quicker response. I hope this helps you.
PS One other item. On the left hand side of the door bellow is the a dispenser tube that penetrates through the bellow and allows water to enter the wash tub. Sometimes the dispenser tube is not seated all the way into the rubber (should be seated past the flange) and it will dispense water behind the rubber instead of into the wash tub. Just something else to consider...
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Quite possible the leak is from the point where your exit hose is inserted into the stand-pipe.
