Open the top as in remove screws and remove the assembly or open the lid?
The manual (and youtube videos) will show how easy it is to remove the control panel cover and tilt the whole front cover of the washer to expose the guts. It is actually not that difficult because I did it once and I am a total kludge when it comes to fixing mechanical stuff.
However, please check for simple condensation as leibold
suggested first and if that is not the root cause, then proceed to the colored water test before opening the cover.
For the color test, if leaked water is still clear, and there is no wetness around main hose, it is most likely that valve/hose for dissolving detergent.
*** I did not see your photos before writing this reply. You should definitely do the color test and check if the water droplets on the washer body are clear or colored.
