Question about Washing Machines
You've probably twisted the outer shell of the machine a bit. First, inspect the door hinge and latch for any sign of displacement or bending, and fix as necessary. If you still have leakage or can't see a problem with the door itself, dry the door gasket thoroughly, then whiten it with chalk wherever the door is supposed to contact it. Close the door, then open it and inspect the chalk pattern to identify which way the machine is twisted. (Wipe off the chalk before your next wash cycle.)
Loosen the trim plate screws on the bottom front; if there is a service access panel there, remove it. Loosen the screws holding the bottom of the shell to the base plate, then push the shell in the direction needed to obtain a seal centered on the door gasket. Tighten the screws. If necessary, open the top of the machine so you can loosen the screws and repeat the adjustment. (Usually the front of the top is fastened with a couple of spring clips and can be tilted up like a range top or the hood on a car. Undo the screws that hold the control panel and the back panel, then carefully pry up the top from the front seam using a flat screwdriver wrapped in tape. If it doesn't move with moderate force ask questions about your specific model before you tear up sheet metal).
