Why does my water heater leak when I wash clothes?

At first I thought it was the washer, but it seems to be the water heater. Why does the water heater leak water when I wash my clothes?
its really leaking, I have to clean it up with a towel.

With cold watrer entering the water heater,It could be causing the burner area to sweat and look like a leak.
