Whenever I try to run a quick cycle wash, the water leaks out underneath the door. There are no codes that appear, or any other indication of trouble. When I run the washer on the full-length cycle, no problems. I haven't used a short cycle in a while (to avoid the mess!), so I don't have any additional specifics-if it would help, I can try the quick cycle again-thanks for any assistance-my husband would prefer to to pay for a service call if at all possible!

Re: Water leaks under door
I had the same problem. Sounds like the door seal is ripped. It must be peplaced. What happens is that the little shoot on the top left( facing maching) onj the top inside of the seal ripps from the constant vibration. You must follow the proceedure to replace the seal cost approximately $80 for the part.

Open door check wash arm position start washer for a minute
Confirm wash arm has rotated
Check for plugged spray tips at either end of wash arm.
Use small tweezers to remove
Check for rack and dishes interfering with arm rotation
Place cup in upper rack with opening up cycle washer.
Confirm that cup quickly fills with water
Not washing check water level in tub mim 1 1/2 inch
Discontinue use of rinse/dry liquid additive.
Confirm rinse/dry additive not leaking from dispenser into tub
Washer detergent contains sparkle additive and too much sparkle/rinses/dry additive will coat dishes
Try alternative wash detergent that contains minimal rinse/dry additive and use without liquid rinse/dry additive.
It will take several wash cycles after the elimination of rinse/dry to purge the oily film from dishes and machine..
If success "joy" is achieved with no additives then cautiously add back wash detergent with additives. Additives are important to facilitate drying and protecting the glassware china from leaching. The leaching process permanently etches the surface of glassware leaving a cloudy appearance.
You should check the water outlet - probably discharges into your sink through a garbage disposal - the water outlet is likely plugged and water can not discharge down the sink. You can remove the hose and clean it out.
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
you can remve a few screws(3) across the bottom of the unit.( just above your "add-on" drawer. 3 torx 20 screws and after removing the acess panel youll get abetter look as to where exactly you water is coming from
did you fix it yet ? check water line fittings underneath if you can pull a bit out washer to watch underneath when running to see where and when in cycle it leaks don't touch any electrical connections safety first LOL. disconnect power wipe dry and then ren it through a quick wash or other cycle and see.
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.
