Our front load washer has a very slow leak from the left front corner - the drain pump filter area.
It is a Model  WM8000HWA "5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity TurboWash™ Washer with Steam Technology"
The filter, filter housing, door, and door seal are clean.
The washer is on a pedestal drawer, no water in the drawer - it seems to drip along the pedestal frame and into the overflow pan that the washer sits in. I plan to first try replacing the O-ring on the drain pump filter before I open the lid and look at the pump and hoses inside. Has anyone had a similar leak?

    I am having the same problem. It appears to be a small leak. And the washer is on a pedestal.
    How one move a washing machine on a pedestal in order to look at it from behind? Help
