Question about Washing Machines
Washer does not leak during operation. I find a leak from underneath washer about a day after I do laundry. Then I find another leak a day or two after that. Then another leak a couple days after that. Leak is roughly 1/2 a cup of water each time.
My guess is you have a slow leak in the inlet. Probably somewhere after the valve. Try turning the valves off between washes. If that fixes it you know it's an inlet leak. There is usually a pair rubber hoses (same connectors as a garden hose) connecting the washer to the inlet valves. In order of ease/price of fixing:

I have the same washer and there is a white plastic piece underneath the washer where two hoses go into. It contains the impeller that pumps the water out. Anyway, on my machine this piece was incorrectly injection molded at the factory. The glue bubbled out causing an air bubble -- once the air bubble in the glue can stand the pressure and pops, the leak occurs!!!!! If you are a handyperson, take this piece out and use exopy to fix.

There are several things that will leak under a GE washer. The the usual suspects are drain hose connections, or hoses that have cracks or holes. I would inspect the hoses first as this would be the easiest fix. The other thing that can causes problems is the wash tub seal on the bottom of the tub. If the spanner nut (under the agitator) comes loose, the seal will unseat and the tub will begin to drip (I've had this one happen to me). Another cause can be the wash tub itself (I've also experienced this one). Inspect the wash tub for cracks. The tub can develop stress cracks and begin to leak. Especially if this is a washer that was involved in a move. To access the inside of the machine, the front should come off by pushing under the front lip of the machine with a putty knife. There are metal clips that hold the front to the top. Look in the crack with a flashlight to locate them. Push in with a putty knife to release and the front should just come off. I hope this helps you.

It might not have totally emptied during the last cycle. Try laying the hose where the water empties down. The level of the hose needs to be lower than the water level to be able to drain. Make sure you have a bucket to empty in to.

Tips for a great answer:
Thank you for your post, friend!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire laundry center is leaking water from the bottom after a day or so. It sounds like you have a slow leak and this could be in your drain line, drain pump, or gasket. I would advise you to review your gasket and drain hose to make sure there is no visible crack or wear that water could be leaking out of. If you do not see any apparent leaks it could be an issue internally and this is not a simply DIY job. You may need to request the assistance of a professional technician for proper disassembly of your laundry center. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt
