Hi Bryan -


The "leak" is more accurately a drip which comes from between the door itself and the equipment panel cover at the bottom. When I put my finger on the bottom of the door and move it around, I can feel water on the bottom of the door. Usually about 1/2 to 1 cup of water Customer up on the floor during a typical wash cycle.


Hope this helps.
