I have a ge front load washer that leaks from the bottom. it appears to be leaking from two small holes on the underside that are located on a small protruding square located on the front right side if looking at the washer from the front. if you elevate the right side it doesn't leak, but when level it seems to almost pour. i can't find any diagrams or schematics on the model so i'm afraid to rip it open and dig around without some guidance. i'm competent but also a worrywort. any advice would be most appreciated.

Part of the problem is that your filter is clogged. Remove the front bottom panel by unscrewing 3 small screws at the base. At the lower right, there is a filter cap that you need to unscrew by hand. Be sure to put a small pail before you unscrew it because a lot of water will come out. Then clean the filter and screw it back in.
In terms of the leaking, that started with my washer just recently. It's not the filter....think it's the rubber seal in the front. If you pull back the rubber, there are small drainage holes that can get clogged. Cleaning helps, but doesn't solve it.
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.
I would check to see if you have a hole or crack in the rubber boot inside the door. Open the door and seperate the fold in the rubber boot and check for a leak. If something sharp was left in someones pocket it will get stuck in this part of the bood.
You should have a drain at the bottom of the rubber boot inside the washer. There is a possibility the drain hose clamp came loose or the boot has a hole in it. If you take the front of the washer cabinet off, you should be able to see where the water is coming from. Take the two screws out of either side of the door opening, pull on both sides of the front panel at the same time, tilt downward, and the panel should come off.
firstly check that the inflow water pipes connected to the machine are connected correctly, feel around the pipes that touch the machine to see if there is any water. If there is the washers may need replacing on the pipe. Or the pipe may simply have got a bit loose through the machines spinning.
