Question about Washing Machines
You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.
Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

main cause is usually use of a wrong type of detergent that creates too many
suds. These suds collect in nooks and crannies and cause mold. Switch from
liquid to powdered detergent.First wipe the inside of the washer, especially
the area where the door seals to the inside. Mold can collect around the
insides and folds of the rubber seals. Get in there and make sure you cleaned
it all. You can use bleach or Pinesol.
run a cycle of hot water along with two cups of vinegar or lemon juice to
loosen up soap and grime. Remove the fabric softener receptacle and soak it in
hot water and detergent. Clean the bleach dispenser with a spray cleaner and
paper towels and Q-tips. Don't forget to clean the top rim of the wash bucket
as it is up and under where it can't usually be seen easily and becomes dirty.
Run the washer empty on a hot cycle one more time.
