Their are screws between the washer and dryer. Undo those and the screws inside the dryer, next too and below the lint trap.

Sud= The unit has sensed there is too many suds in the unit it will
flush and pump out for 5 min and restart on its own..This is caused by
too much soap use..
From the book :
If too much detergent was used:
—Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
—Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump,
pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).

Removing the lower front panel would help immensly in determing where the leak is coming from. Most commonly, the leak is caused by the door bellow (gray rubber boot) leaking. If you pull back the rubber folds in the door seal and inspect around the perimeter, you may find that it has become ripped or torn. This is normal as they do wear out with age. If you determine the door bellow to be leaking you will need to replace it. The following link explains:
The instructions to remove the lower panel are included in the link I provided. Another common symptom of a leaking bellow is the front counter weight on the drum will be wet.
If the bellow is intact, with no obvious signs of holes, check the water inlet tube that is located on the left hand side of the bellow to ensure it is fully inserted through the bellow properly. The inlet tube, if not inserted through the rubber correctly, will cause the water to run behind it and out the bottom of the cabinet. Push the tube through the rubber until it reaches the flange on the inlet tube.
Also check the following:
1. Check the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump.
2. Make sure the drain pump reservoir cap is secure and not leaking.
3. Check the along the seam of the wash tub as well. There is a tub gasket that holds the two halves of the tub together that can develop leaks.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.
This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:
Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.
Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.
Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.
Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.
These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.
NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.
If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.
