It is time to change the sealing gasket and you must get a rreplacement from the Electrolux service dealer so as to change. there are also many types of this gasket suiting the origianl which can be found in hardware shops that can be fitted on to the door.Take a sample along.
Use a good brush , clean with some kerosene/diesel then use jet of water/detergent to clean the gasket, the gasket fitting slots before the new ones are fitted.
Hope this helps.

When I start the washer, it fills just fine with no problems but once it starts the cycle, it gushes water from the bottom of the door


Check the bottom of the plastic inner door. If there is a crack or a gouge, have it replaced. Also check the rubber door boot for holes above the water line

it may not be the door that is leaking if this is an older admiral or whirlpool dishwasher the lever that holds the soap door closed has a little rubber seal that after time will let water in during the wash cycle it the runs down the inside of the door and out the bottom if you rmove the in side of the door you will probably see the water trail from the wax motor down. this gasket is not expensive or hard to replace.

Water is pouring from bottom of washer during the entire cycle


The grey rubber around the door which is called a Door Bellow might have a hole in it. It is the most common problem for front loader leaking water. Check this first, pull it and use a flashlight to check the back part. I found this out last week, I had a leak and had 5 holes in the bellow. Here is a link to the part. You can get it cheaper here for $70.09 plus$5.95 for shipping or you can check ebay for the part number 8181850. If this is not the problemt follow the link below to check other items.

That gasket is supposed to look like that. Use less soap and/or replace that gasket. It is very easy to do but pay attention to how the old on is placed. There is a small notch that has to be placed right.

Water leaking bottom front door


Check out the front seal carefully for a replacement. Due to the flexibility of the seal, it is not to easy to spot a tear mark, Under pressure of an operation load, a small tear will allow water leaking through, so there is a leak. It is very common that a hard sharp object left inside clothing and during washing cycle, it makes its way to the seal and cause a damage. Hope this can help.

Small ammount of water leaks at bottom of door during wash


I have this same problem. What I do is carefully clean the part of the glass door where it meets the rubber gasket when you close the door. Bits of crud tend to accumulate there and break the seal between the smooth glass and the rubber gasket. This causes small amounts of water to leak out.

I don't use an abrasive cleanser. I generally clean it when it is dry and crusty with my hand or with my fingernails if it stubborn. You don't want to scratch the smooth glass surface. fingernails are much softer than glass and won't scratch the glass.

I also take a look at the rubber gasket and see if there is any crud sticking on that and very gently clean it off when it is dry and crusty. If the gasket gets torn, you'll probably need to replace it. I don't know how much that would cost. This should stop the dribbles.

Cheers,
Zac

Water leaking out of bottom of door


There is a rubber seal that runs along the bottom of the door. If you carefully run your hand along there just to see if it is all even. Sometimes they get out of place and you can push it back and then closing the door it realigns itself and all is good. If the seal is damaged, you have to replace the door liner as the seal is attached.
