WHere is the detergent leaking from?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I think the detergent is leaking from the normal dispenser opening in the bladder - about 11 o'clock in the machine. I'm not sure if it runs down to the center of the bladder and then over the lip and out to the metal surface at the bottom of the door or if it is running along the door window and down to the bottom.

Appliance Guru, I haven't heard back from you - are you able to help me or should I pursue a refund of my money?

SO it sounds like it is leaking from the tub boot itself correct?
