Re: GE front loading washer leaking
With only a limited amount of information, I would guess your door seal may be worn....but how can you check it? Take a reqular piece of paper (8.5x11) and cut a strip 1x11. Open the door and while holding onto the paper strip, put the strip in the TOP of the door and shut it to see how the seal 'feels' when you try to pull the paper out. It should be very hard, if not impossible to pull the strip of paper out. Now, do the same thing with the bottom of the door. Does it appear to be much easier? Without knowing the age of the machine, I might question the door seal. You might also want to check to see if the door might not be bent just a bit. Do this by placeing a long level vertically along the front facing with the door open, then check the door for level. It may be as simple as bending the top of the door out while you bend the lower part in.

Make sure the rubber seal around the door is not a) pinched and bent out of shape b) degraded/deteriorated/ripped/cracked.
Also make sure no one knocked anything and bent anything out of shape.
Is your washer draining properly, otherwise?
The GE front load washer Front seal does have a common problem withe the front seal getting riped. Open the door and inspect the bottom half, you might find the hole. if not you will half to remove the bottom access area and locate the leak.
open the door and check between the drum and door frame. There is a large rubber bladder completely surrounding the drum. Pushing the drum further back into the machine will let you see the entire thing and unfold it. These often get small laundry like socks stuck there as well as sharp objects like nails. You may have a tear in it which will leak like that. Replacement parts run about $70.00.
