Here is the answer !!! My LG front loader has leaked once a year for the past 4 years. The rubber bellows (a part underneath the washer) cracks and causes the leak. DO NOT LET THEM TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE USING TOO MUCH DETERGENT ... THAT JUST AN EXCUSE !!! The part costs around $12. Here's the link ...

You are likely using too much detergent or the detergent is not high-efficiency detergent. Change detergents and/or lower amount and this problem should go away.
The water port on the back allows air inside the tub to escape. However, if the wrong type or quantity of detergent are used, excess suds will flow from this port.

SOURCE: Water and suds leaking
if you have any suds your either using too much soap or the wrong kind. does the washer drain all the water out each time? is this a new machine where you're washing your clothes in it for the first time? I've seen clothes with resisual soap in them causing over sudsing.

Actually, it's most likely not a clog, I've seen this rare problem before, but it sounds like your machine could be missing what LG calls a "mushroom valve". This is just a piece of plastic with a mushroom shaped top, and it slips down in the top of the machine, and it suppose to allow air to pass through, but block any water from coming through. There is a large hose called a bellow that surrounds this, and connects to the tub with a screw style clamp, and then connects the same way to the back of the cabinet.
This isn't to hard to check, if you have a Phillips screwdriver handy. You can remove the top of the washing machine with two screws, and the top cover slides backward, and then you pull it up to pop it off.
Once you have the top of the cover off, you can see the large black hose (bellow) and you'll notice the screw clamp in place, you can easily loosen the clamp up, and pop one end of the bellow off, that attaches to the tub, and see if you have the mushroom valve in place.
