this may be something stuck in the gasket(rubber) that seals the door. Fold down the gasket all thew way around the gasket, remove any thing hat may be there. This could be coins, small articles of clothing, or a wash cloth.
If no obstruction is found, it probrbly require replacement of the door gasket/seal.
clean the glass real good,, if it still leaks take a hair dryer to the part of the gasket that seals around the door,, heat it while pulling the lip out toward you ( not much just try to get it straight) if the doesnt work you will need to replace your gasket,, also know as the bellows
IF LEAK IS FROM AROUND SIDES OR TOP OF DOOR, IT COULD BE THE DOOR GASKET, FIRST MAKE SURE THAT THE DOOR IS NOT MAKING CONTACT ON THE SIDES WITH CABINETS, THEN CHECK THAT THE SPRAY ARM ROTATES FREELY INSIDE AND NOT SPRAYING DIRECTLY ON EDGE OF DOOR. THE GASKETS ARE REPLACEABLE. IF LEAK IS COMING FROM BOTTOM OF DOOR THEN THE PIECE IS CALLED A BAFFLE AND IS ALSO REPLACEABLE. MOSTLY THE PROBLEM IS OTHER THAT DOOR GASKET OR BAFFLE. THE DOOR DOES NOT CLOSE COMPLETELY WHEN CONTACTING THE CABINETS.
No, you don't need to remove the door to replace the gasket. It is usually a pressure fit and will just push into the alloted space. Take notice of where the originial one begins and ends before removing it.
Check inside the door on the bellows gasket to make sure the inlet area (normally at the 10 o'clock position) is properly positioned around the water inlet, sometimes these work themselves off the inlet nozzle and can casue a leak when the washer is filling up.
Also, carefully run your hand around the bellows gasket to see if you can find any small holes that cold be letting water leak out. You'll need a flashlight to make this easier. It is hardly ever the hinges that causes a leak since the hinges are mounted outside of the door seal gasket (bellows gasket) and aren't ever exposed to the water.
Check the rubber bellow (gasket) around the door. This is the symptom of a door gasket that it starting to leak. Pull the rubber folds back and check the area where the gasket attaches to the wash tub. You may have a crack or tear. If the gasket is worn please replay back to this post and I can give you advice on how to replace it and where to get a replacement gasket.
