Leaky LG washer

My LG washer is 1.5 years old. The washer and dryer are stacked in a closet.

I put a smartthings water leak sensor in the closet just in case. And there's a small leak that comes up during the rinse cycle (though I cannot determine exactly when the leak starts) from the bottom left.

We wipe down the gasket and the door after EVERY day that it is used.

I have:
- cleaned the filter in front bottom left (it wasn't even mucky)
- used 2 washing machine cleaning pods (admittedly, i was just being a little cheap and trying not to use a 3rd one)

The trouble shooting on the LG website doesn't appear to help my situation.

Since it's stacked and in a closet, I do not have easy access to the rear connections but was hoping if anyone had any other suggestions before I do some heavy lifting (or pulling)

Have you tried a selfie stick and use a phone to try to view the back of your washer unit? When the washer was installed was the hose new or reused? The house could have been pinched if pushed to far back or under the washer

Edit: also check your clear out port for lint and gunk. It maybe clogged and pressure buildup causing leak.

I have a LG washer that was a few months old when I noticed it started to leak on the rinse cycle as well....especially when I was washing towels. It was still under warranty so I placed a service call. The repair man said that the machine was in perfect working order and that I was using too much soap. I reduced the amount of soap I was using and sure enough, the leaking stopped.

How did you pay? If by credit card, you may be able to get some warranty?
