Re: someone put washing powder in machine
First unplug the machine; open up behind to see if any of the hoses have come loose, tighten. Another place to look is the top of the machine where the water comes in, you hv to open the top to see if some hose there has come loose. Refit carefully. It is even possible that it leaks from where your filter is. Three places to check in all.

As with any top-loader, the soap drawer will deposit the entire soap load on one spot within the first few seconds of water fill. When the water starts running through the soap drawer, the brakes on the drum are released, so you can manually rotate the drum to disperse the soap over the load surface, thus eliminating the concentrated spots. Also, you may save the duvet, as the white marks are most probably dried soap powder which can be removed with a damp cloth wiped over the area.
Try filling it up with HOT water and vinegar use about 2 cups for a full load. Also take the hot and cold water hoses off the washer and check the screens for little sand like rocks that can block the water flow. I always use liquid and not the powder. Another thing is not to put the clothes in first. After you try the other things first then try to add the water first with the powder and then put the clothes in. Don't over load the clothes. This can cause the powder not to dissolve either. Hope this helps.
This could be a partially or completely seized/failed pump.
Before a machine goes in to a spin cycle, it runs the pump to empty all the water out. It used to be quite common that the machine does not check all the water has gone before spinning, it just runs the pump for a set time which if the pump is okay, is long enough to empty it.
If a spin is then started with quite a lot of water left in the drum, it gets thrown everywhere including back out of the powder/conditioner draw. Also the sheer strain of spinning a large amount of water can force water through an otherwise okay door seal.
Unless you are comfortable working on the machine yourself, call an engineer.
Check the wire ring that goes around the rubber seal located just inside the door - we had to call a repair person out one day because our door was leaking, and he told us it's important that the spring be at the top of the door opening to prevent leaks from happening. He had a hard time moving the spring to the top but that seemed to help.
A few months later we found a water leak from our soap tray, so we had the tray replaced under warranty, although I'm not sure that helped because the replacement looked identical to the old one. It only leaked when we used powdered Oxyclean and liquid soap in the tray at the same time; the leaking water ran behind the front cover and dripped out onto the floor
all along the front of the machine, mostly near the left corner, but we stopped putting Oxyclean into the tray & the problem stopped. Hope that helps.
Your leak could be coming from the rubber door seal. Inspect all the way around the rubber seal paying particular attention to the areas behind the rubber seal where it meets the wash tub. They wear with age and can develop small holes. When they start leaking it appears like water coming from under the machine. I hopes this helps.
