SOURCE: Kenmore front load washer
Purchased a Kenmore HE 2T a few months ago. We discovered water on the washer during the rinse cycle of 1 large load of wash. A Sears repairman checked over the washer and told us we were using too much HE detergent and this caused water to leak out from the door. He said its a common problem with front loaders and recommended using 1/2 to 1/4 (if a water softener is installed) the amount recommended by the manufacturer.
We use the washer everyday and so far no more water leaks.

open the door though, put your hand around the rubber boot assy, run *** all around looking for small tears, and or holes, if so replace it. only other thing to do is remove the lower access panel and watch it spin a load and youll be able to detect where te waters coming from

The rubber seal is known as a bellow. If the bellow is torn, more than likely it IS the cause of your leak. Your only course of action is the replace it. Searspartsdirect.com carries replacements. Just type in your model (as you provided) and look under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading for item number 1 (part #8182119). It is not a cheap part, but it will cost you much more to have an appliance repair company install it for you. This is not a difficult repair, and you can accomplish this on your own if you follow these steps:
Some additional parts that normally do not need replaced, but you may consider just in case are the front and back clamps that hold the bellow in place. They are listed under the same heading as items 6 and 14. They don't cost that much and may consider them just in case you need them. In particular, the front clamp, can break or the spring becomes stretched. Inspect these items just to be sure.
I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.
PS You may also try repairclinic.com for comparative pricing. They also carry the same parts (sometimes for less).
