This problem is most likely caused by a faulty pump seal. You need to remove the lower spray arm and then you will see 8 torx bit screws securing the top of the pump. remove this and you will see a rubber gasket that has blown out. You can replace with a new one or carefully cut enough of the stretched seal out to reset it in it's track and reinstall cover. while spray arm is off inspect it for plugged holes or even cracks as these can also cause leaks.

Make sure that the seal is not pinched in the bottom of the door. this happens very often, open the door all the way and check for a pinched or mislaid seal.

Leak


Hi, If you remove the lower half of the front panel, you will be able to see the pump and hoses. Another option is the bellows around the door. Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Water leaking from the door and front panel of my Duet washer


Check the rubber door seal, sounds like its split which is common after 2-3 years use.
You can find the general area of the leak by placing dry newspaper on a dry floor beneath the machine.

Washer leaking


It may have torn the gasket or just have a sock stuck in it.
you can remove the bottom panel to help look.
(3 screws on bottom front lip)
remove ac power
you cannot operate with bottom door removed as it has a safety switch.
While you are down there open the filter and look for trapped debris.
ready for some water , have towels ready.
