Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

You're just going ot need to remove the 2 screws near the bottom of the front panel and look for traces of white hard water diposits to see where the water is coming from. If you look around the inside cabinet and there are water ( or grease ) spots all along the sides and the front panel, that means you're main seal and bearing has gone out and it's going to be best to just replace the washer due to the expense and time involved.
