The first hand inspection is the best opttion to finalise on the leak, If you move your palm on the area of the leak the water drip can be felt to confirm.
If it is the door gasket you can rotate the same to move it upwards to reduce the leak if from the bottom.
If not replace gasket.
Can als be due to drain hose /drain pump fault if dripping is at the bottom.

Leaks from door seal

The best way to place a dishwasher in "unused" mode (when not being used, that is) is to park the door slightly open. This assures that the seal is not constantly crushed and takes a form that is too relaxed when it IS being used. . Unless there are extenuating siturations (like a rip in the seal, the machine filling too much, etc.), You might have to have the door seal replaced. You could try taking a very powerful hair dryer and heating the seal while you pull on it to make it take a better form with some spring, but often this doesn't help much. Give it a try, and park your door open a smidge when the machine is not being used. (Just have it unlached.) . Make sure your machine isn't filling too much. Sometimes the little float device (if equipped) is stuck. Reach down and diddle with this round float thing and make sure it is able to go up and down.

Water is leaking from the door. Do I need to replace the door gasket?

HI, first, make sure there isn't anything preventing the actual door seal from forming a complete seal around the door frame. this can be caused be a creased section of the seal, or a piece of debris. if the seal is free of the above stated issues, in should be replaced asap.

I would also inspect the door alignment as well. if the door is slightly mis-aligned, this will prevent the seal from making contact with the door frame in a appropriate manner, in return, causing a slight leak during the wash.

Leak water at the from door

HI. check to see if the front door seal is creased slightly. if so, try to straighten it so that it is flush with the door structure when closed. check the drum seal as well. replace the door seal if needed.

Over sudding can cause this as well. make sure you are using the correct amount of HE detergent.

yes most certainly, with leaks it is either the seals or cracks in hoses or rust holes in wash cylinder, but most likely the first too because of being a fairly new model

Front door leaking during washing cycle

There are only two ways that water can leak out this way. it can be either the door seal or the door lock mech has become misaligned, causing a slight gap that is letting the water escape through.

I recommend inspecting the door lock mech for its integrity. make sure it is aligned correctly to specs. replace this mechanism if found to be faulty or misaligned. i would also inspect the seal for tiny ruptures as well. the slightest rupture or hole can allow small amounts of water to excape.

Inspect these areas thouroughly.

LG WM2688HM front loader is leaking water around the door seal

this may be coming from the soap dispenser and running down round the door way and to the bottom- investigate that first. otherwise the seal may be worn/ damaged and needs replacing.
