Hi, it could be leaking from the fill hose on the top left, just under the dispenser. You can take the top panel off with 2 quarter inch screws on the back of the panel. Then look under the dispenser while the machine is filling. Best of luck!

If the leak started occurring after the bellow was replaced, and it's on the left hand side of the door, I suspect the bellow is not seated around the fill tube all the way. I have experienced this problem before. Check the fill tube where it comes in by the door. The rubber should be seated back far enough to allow the tube to fill into the tub without obstruction. It could be that the fill tube is forcing water BEHIND the bellow and leaking into the washer and on to the floor. To answer your question, "YES", replacing the bellow could have caused your leak.

SOURCE: front loading washer leaks

The rubber seal (or bellow) wears with age and will eventually deteriorate over time. Excessive use of detergent, and/or use of the wrong detergent (detergent that is not HE) can contribute to rubber breakdown too. Regular detergent is formulated for washers that use a wash tub with a capacity of 35 gallons. HE detergent is formulated for High Efficiency washers that only use 5 to 7 gallons of water. So, if you place regular detergent in an HE washer, you are (in affect) putting a higher concentration of soap in your washer. This higher concentration of soap can act as a corrosive to rubber and become permeated in your clothing as it does not rinse completely. This can lead to skin irritations as well. It is important that if you are not using HE detergent that you do so in the future to prevent premature breakdown of the rubber seals of the washer and pump. This will also void most manufacturer warranties if it determined you are using improper detergent. Now...I'm not trying to accuse you of abusing your appliance and not trying to lecture you. I'm merely putting this information out, because some people simply do not know. Overloading the washer is another contributor to excessive wear on the bellow as well as not keeping the bellow cleaned properly. Mold and mildew can contribute to the break down of rubber. The following link can give some advice on proper care of the door bellow:

Since your bellow is already leaking, it must be replaced. Replacements can be ordered on line at either searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, or pcappliancerepair.com. All these websites offer competitive pricing, so you can shop for the best deals. Just type in your COMPLETE model number to begin your search. The Sears website offers helpful exploded view diagrams to assist in part identification and location. NOTE: You may consider ordering the front and rear bellow clamps if yours are damaged. Refer to the Sears website for pictorial view.

If you need assistance in replacing the bellow, the following link will give you the steps necessary to complete this repair on your own:

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Had same problem with GE wssh300 front load washer. Removed two screws from front bottom panel (under washer front). Pulled off panel, loosened screw from a seal ring on the rubber flex hose going to a 4" square plastic housing. Reached down inside and found a ton of lint (probaby a 2" balls worth) jamming outlet. Removed lint an works geat. Very easy to do by tilting front of washer up and putting supports under front to keep elevated. Be careful to make sure supports are sturdy washer can't dop when servicing.
