Water leaking from front door of washer only on Delicate Setting
I have a water leaking problem from the front door of my washer, which is only isolated to the Delicate and Handwashing settings. I can see a stream of water dripping down the front of the washer. Why??? Is there a easy fix?

Sounds like you've got the hoses switched, and the cold water you're feeling is just what is in the hot water lines until the lines get purged. Try filling on the hot setting and see if cold or hot comes out; my guess is you'll get cold water on the hot setting.
The water inlet level setting could be faulty and thus "overfills" the washer with water. The water level is senced via a plastic tube feeding an ajustable switch. Sometimes the plastic pressur sence pipe gets clogged and water level is then not correct. The switch can have burnt contacts and might need replacing.
The water should be able to come up to the door level without leaking. Chances are you have build up on the bottom side of the glass on your door. If so take a razor blade and scrape the build up off. Your door will quit leaking.
is it IE or LE please confirm it.if it is LE code the fixing procedure is given belowThis usually happens if you're washing on a delicate setting with a moderate load of clothes. Apparently, delicate also means very few items to wash. To clear the LE code - no need to unload the clothes: 1. Press the power button to turn the washer off. 2. Press the power button to turn the washer back on. 3. Cycle the spin cycle selection to 'no spin'. 4. Press start. The washer should set to one minute, lock the doors, then drain out the excess water. Once the 'End' cycle comes up, unplug the machine for several minutes. Plug the washer back in, press the power button, then set the washer to 'normal' with 'low' spin setting. Note that the only difference between the normal setting and delicate is the wash time and spin cycle speed. If you have a moderate to large load of delicates, use the normal setting on low spin cycle. The clothes really don't care. Also, make sure you're using 'HE' detergent - low suds. Regular degergent in a front load is not recommended.
Appears to have been the drain holes below the rubber drum flange. My wife cleaned in there for the first time after our speaking to a lowes sales person who owns one as well. When I monitored the next "delicate" load with the front panel off and after cleaning, there was no sign of water anywhere. Hope this was the solution. My wife also mentioned the loads (on delicate) came out damper than the norm but this time it was much drier. Wonder if delicate cycle may fill the washer higher than the normal cycle.
As a footnote we mentioned an occasional musty smell would occur and the same sales person said to not only leave the front door ajar but also open the soap drawer. When I checked the service manual I noticed the unit has a vent hose which vents into the soap drawer. All makes sense when you consider a front load is much tighter sealed than a top load.
