Most likely the fabric soft dispenser is clogged . this happens when you wash alot in cold water the left over fabric softner get very pasty and can clog it up. You can try filling the dispenser with hot water and run a cycle with hot water this should unclog the dispenser .
Your pipe to the water pump exit is probably blocked with bits of old fluff or missing sock, i found that the clothes had slimy bits on mine, i tilted it up and removed the rubber water exit pipe from under neath, cleaned out all the rubbish and works a treat now.
You must take out the compartment and empty it out before adding any bleach the next time, there is a type of button way in the back that you press down on pull out the entire door and empty the water for the next washing. You must press down very hard the entire door does come out check out your book for instructions it is way in the back on the left hand side. This happens to mine once in a while not all the time.
Had the same problem. I unplugged the machine from the mains. pulled it out from the unit and removed the lid. checked the black rubber hose which leads from the drawer to the drum. it was full of water. i carefully squeezed the pipe and tried to clean it out with warm water to see if it was clogged. still leaking. i then Removed the green paddle on the inside and turned the drum to line up with the black rubber hose that leads from the drawer. I very carefully used a wire coat hanger to put through the gap in the drum left by the paddle. Moved left and right, oh look.... A sock! I manipulated it out of the gap, checked the hose. Water had gone. Put everything back together. No leak. All done in under an hour :-)
