I have an LG LD-12AW2 Which is leaking from the left hand bottom corner of the door. It seems to me that the dishwasher is filling up with far too much water. It starts to leak quite bad after only a minute or two.

Re: LG LD12AW2 leaking
The fill switch may be contaminated with soap or debris that makes it heavier and makes it float lower in the water which means more water is required to trip it. Try moving it manually and see if it is hard to move at the top of its travel.

This sounds like a anti flood activation due to water leak / spill detection. This device (polystireen float and micro switch) at the base of the washer detects any water leak and stops the washing cycle once water leak activates the switch via the float. Check if any water at the base of washer is cuasing the float to activate the switch. Rectify any leak / spill (normally a pipe / clamp) and this should solve the problem.
On the LG LD-12AW2 model, there is a float assembly just behind the wall where the water inlet port is located inside the unit.
When that float (or the micro-switch inside it) fails, water will continue to flow in without stopping . That causes the overflowing.
Post back here if you are looking for more specific guidance.
this unit has an anti flood device. if it leaks it lifts a piece of plastic in the base and hits the microswitch. try leaning the unit to one side and i would put towels down. if water comes out then try a program. hope this helps.
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.
