Are you saying that the unit keeps filling on its own? e.g; without actually running a load?
Yes, the water is dripping down the left side of the gasket/seal from the small rubber port of the gasket/seal.
Ok. If the unit is filling on its own and then leaking out of the door seal when it gets up high enough then that is actually normal (the leak not filling on its own). The door has a lock mechanism that pulls the door tight during a wash cycle. If the unit is not in a cycle than the door is not completly sealed and it will leak if water is in it. The problem is a leaking fill valve. Change it and no more water will leak into the unit when you are not useing it. Give me a couple of minuets and I will get you parts ordering, and repair information.
Ok, Thanks. Also how would I gain access to that part,front or back?
From the top actually. Getting you the repair and parts ordering information now.

To access the fill valve you need to remove the top of the unit. At the back of the unit along the top are three screws that hold the top on. Remove them and the top slides to the rear for removal. The valve is what the water supply lines connect to.
Great, that should fix the problem?
Yup! Replace the leaking valve and the water will stop leaking into the unit
Thank you for the help.
You are welcome.
