Sounds like you have a broken stantion on the back of the can confirm this by opening the door and trying to pull up on the stainless steel basket.if it pushes up and flops back down,that is what you have.if the mach is over 2yrs old,look in your manual under warranty.if it has a 10yr on stainless steel basket and lifetime on tub,you will only have to pay for labor on repair.if it only has 1yr on entire mach,est would be higher than the price of a new one.

Kenmore 3.5 cu ft front load quiet tumble action washer. Will not stop cycling, leaks, and shakes violently when spinning.

The shaking could be due to a defective drum support bearing. The shaking also could have caused the door seal to fail, resulting in the leak.
