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.

This could be the rubber seal or the door lock. If the door lock is not pulling it tightly closed then it needs to be replaced. Check the seal really closely and make sure there are not cracks and it does not look deformed

I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)

First, clean off the bottom of the door glass where it contacts the gray tub gasket when the door closes. Any hair or other build up can result in leakage. Second, if that does not completely solve your leak, you can move the location of the spring which holds the tub gasket from the very bottom (6 O'clock position) to the hinge area (9 O'clock position). Third: Sometimes, the reason you get a leak is due to the installation. If the washer was pushed into place by applying pressure in the center front of the washer, the outer front panel can be slightly deformed (inwerd) resulting in leakage from the door. If that is the case, sometimes you can remove the outer clamp and outer part of the gray seal and pull out on the front panel to correct the situation if it is not too severe, rather than replacing the entire front panel.
