The blue pipe with the elbow? Zip tie it to the overflow pipe, put a brick on it etc.

I’ve got the same make and model which had the same problem …if your sure its leaking from the door it will be coming through where the door jam or seal mounts and then leaking into the wall…..what you need to do is get yourself a tube of industrial silicon sealant and bead some silicon along between the back of plastic door seal mounts and the stainless steel wall lining...then allow silicon to set for 24 hours before running machine again
I believe over time the carcase and doors do warp causing these leaks
Hope this solves your problem

This could be one of two issues.
1. You may have high water pressure, causing the internals of the fill valve to vibrate and that vibration wave being transferred to your water pipes causing a reverberation noise called hammering.
An easy fix for this would be to reduce the flow to the fill assy. by turning down the units supply valve from wide open to about half way open. A few more permanent solutions may include, The installation of a Water hammer damper device - installation of a PRV pressure reducing valve - Although not intended for this issue is an air charged bladder style expansion tank installed, this device has been proven to reduce water hammering.
2. Water pipes that are not properly secured, loose and allowed to shake when there is a sudden surge of flow pressure. Much like a garden hose flexes when the nozzle is quickly turned on. This issue is most common with CPVC (plastic) water lines due to their flexibility and will require many more secure points.
A fix for this is a bit more labor intensive, due to having to access the un-exposed water lines in walls and ceilings so as to inspect and/or re-secure them to their surrounding structures.
A tip for securing the pipes where they penetrate through wall studs is to inject an expanding foam product in to the studs penetration, hence when the foam expands and cures it will form a very snug fit.
Note: if ether of these are the case, the problem should not be allowed to continue, because water pipe leaks could occur at the solder or welded connections and/or at locations where the pipes are rubbing against an abrasive surfaces causing a rupture.

You're experiencing "water hammering" it's solvable too.
You can buy anti-hammer add-ons which you can put under a nearby sink, or even on an outside hose bib. This will give the water pipes an air "shock absorber"... since air compresses it cushions the abrupt changes in the pressure where as if it's just water, it'll slam and hammer and vibrate...
Try an anti hammer device added to you supply... you should be able to add it with out too much tearout.

The pump has either gone bad or it is siezed up...you can try to unplug the pum and let it sit for a few hours then plug it back in... sometimes if you jog it on and off a few times you can get tiit to break loose and work again...if not you will have to take it out and replace the pump.
