Water can't leak out the top from overloading unless the entire tub is full of water which is a major malfunction, or an inlet hose between the powder drawer and tub is somehow blocked (extremely unlikely).. Are you using topload detergent? Normal detergent can foam up and out through the drawer and leak onto the floor..
Normally water enters through the top of the powder tray to disperse it into the tub. pull out the tray slightly while filling to see how this works. You might be able to identify that the water is not flowing properly. Normally you can really pack into a front loader, I've been thrilled with my 5100 for 8yrs.
If this doesn't help let me know and I'll suggest next step.
Good luck!

My Isuzu kb 2.2 petrol engine leaks water from the dashboard, what could be wrong?

Either it is water from the AC evaporator, the heater core is leaking, or one of the hoses to it is leaking. If the water is cold to the touch and the ac is on then it is condensate - could be that the tube that leads the condensate down and away from car is clogged and the water backs up and spills over the collecting tray.

Water is leaking from the bottom of the refriderator

Blue connector means nothing to me but I guess the water is generated by the auto-defrost function where any frost or ice that is created is melted by a brief heating cycle and the water collects in a sort of funnel or vee shape moulded into the internal plastic liner near the bottom.
The water then should run through a tube into a tray on top of the motor unit where the heat evaporates it.

Sometimes the tube becomes detached or blocked or otherwise preventing the water from collecting in the drip tray. A closer examination should reveal the trouble.

Water comes in the back, then goes via to solenoid valves to the back of the powder tray, it then is distributed through holes above each compartment, take out the powder tray (push down the blue bit at the back of the softener compartment) and check for cracks or even blockages, (water goes from tray down the back and through a short rubber hose straight into the drum.

My washing machine is over filling it is draining away but only if you put it on a spin the inlet water is constant and is always filling and wont cut off then it leaks from door seal and tray for washing...

Water inlet is controlled by a level switch and hot/cold water valves,( solenoids). It seems most likely that one of the water valve diaphragms is faulty;turn off hot and then cold taps to determine which one is leaking.A handy person can often strip the valve and replace the diaphragm, or else
a service person may be needed.
At times, the water is measured by weight,(depth) and during spray rinse by the timer, therefore, if you are using a cold rinse, ,most likely the cold valve is faulty.

Under your fridge, there is a drain hose which goes into a removable tray on the bottom of your refrigerator.This is where the water from the automatic defroster goes. The heat from the motor dries the water up, but occasionally the hose becomes plugged, or does not set into the tray. You may have to pull the fridge away from the wall, go behind the fridge, get down on the floor, find the tray, in the front or back, check that the hose is in place and patent. If the tray is full of water, there may be a heating or evaporating element that is not working to dry up the water, in which case you could always manually empty the tray till you you find a solution. Good luck.

Check the wire ring that goes around the rubber seal located just inside the door - we had to call a repair person out one day because our door was leaking, and he told us it's important that the spring be at the top of the door opening to prevent leaks from happening. He had a hard time moving the spring to the top but that seemed to help.

A few months later we found a water leak from our soap tray, so we had the tray replaced under warranty, although I'm not sure that helped because the replacement looked identical to the old one. It only leaked when we used powdered Oxyclean and liquid soap in the tray at the same time; the leaking water ran behind the front cover and dripped out onto the floor all along the front of the machine, mostly near the left corner, but we stopped putting Oxyclean into the tray & the problem stopped. Hope that helps.
