Re: My machine has a small water leak though the door...

This tube regulates the water level and switch. If its found to be damaged, replace it and that will work out for u...

if the water is leaking during the fill cycle when the detergent is being added from the drawer ensure the draw is clear, if too much deturget rests has blocked the vent then water maybe running out on the inside.
if the problem is happening during the wash cycle this indicates a leak on your drum, ensure your door seal is intact and not leaking.
if the problem is during pumping, ensure that the pump is not causing a problem maybe open the bottom vent and ensure the cover is seated properly and pump is clear. also check the outlet pipe is not blocked or leaking and water is running back on the outside of the outlet pipe and under the machine
Check out the front seal carefully for a replacement. Due to the flexibility of the seal, it is not to easy to spot a tear mark, Under pressure of an operation load, a small tear will allow water leaking through, so there is a leak. It is very common that a hard sharp object left inside clothing and during washing cycle, it makes its way to the seal and cause a damage. Hope this can help.
There are only two ways that water can leak out this way. it can be either the door seal or the door lock mech has become misaligned, causing a slight gap that is letting the water escape through.
I recommend inspecting the door lock mech for its integrity. make sure it is aligned correctly to specs. replace this mechanism if found to be faulty or misaligned. i would also inspect the seal for tiny ruptures as well. the slightest rupture or hole can allow small amounts of water to excape.
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...
out the bottom of door?? no through the bottom panel???. check the rubber door seal for rips or tears pull it back and look around entire circumference. smalll rip in very front of seal where door should close against will cause leak for sure
