Check the big rubber seal around the door for any holes or tears. Had the same problem, my husband had a screw in his pocket that torn a hole in the gasket.

you will need to remove the lid first then remove the screws that hold the control panel in place.then you will need to remove the door boot on the front panel. there will be two screws on the bottom of the panel that will need to be removed as well as the screws on the top of the panel.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much, really appreciate the quick response!"
I had the same problem. I didn't want to spend the money or go to the trouble of replacing the whole latch assembly with the GE latch repair kit.
I found that the plastic latch piece screwed to the door had broken and one of the two latch "fingers" was stuck in one of the latch openings on the washer. I fixed the problem by removing the broken part from the washer and drilling and countersinking very small holes (1/16" I think) in the plastic latch piece on either side of the "latch finger". I then put the broken off piece back in place and drillled pilot holes for #4 sheet metal screws in the door where the latch is located. The door liner is plastic and I think I used a 1/32 inch drill bit. I reattached the broken latch piece with two 1/2 inch stainles steel #4 flat head phillips screws from Home Depot. The screws hold the broken latch piece in place as orinilally positioned.
The repair is working fine and the door now latches like it did before the latch part broke

Front right would most likely be the discharge pump. Here's a diagram:
Sounds like you could have a pump problem or a loose hose. First, go ahead and clean the drain pump filter (as per instructions in the Use & Care Manual). Screw it back in tightly to see if that resolves the issue.
If not, check this posting for how to run a diagnostic test: http://www.fixya.com/support/t9576766-found_small_part
Test T02 will show you the most recently encountered codes. At the bottom of that posting is a link to the code definitions with problem resolutions: http://www.fixya.com/support/t9556917-ge_model_wcvh6800j_error_code_04
If you don't get any error codes and all tests run correctly, open the front access panel and see if you can figure out where the leak is originating from (To remove the panel: undo three screws and lift from the bottom). Please post back once you either have codes or have located the leak source...then we can troubleshoot more.
