Thank you for using JustAnswer. I'm sorry to hear you are have difficult with your washer.
We have seen this before and it's probably water that you are seeing there. The repair can be a bit invovlved and involves removing most of the cabinet to get to the part.
Please post the model number if you wish to do this yourself and we will help you thru. You can usually find this where the door meets the machine in the crevice.
This above model number may be missing a digit. Please check it again.
It's referred to as the actuator. The top, controls and entire cabinet will need to come off. There are a lot of parts to this one. Medium to hard repair.
I have to agree with you on this one. You have to have a good deal of patience for this.
