I have Kenmore 70 Series Heavy Duty Plus Washer (Model 82370120 I think).
I run a load of clothes almost every night -- towels tonight, though not many. The washer filled with water, agitated, and didn't drain. When it finished (the timer went all the way around), I went to check on it and smelled something "electrical" -- like something had gotten hot. The washer is full of clothes and dirty water. I suspect the hot electrical smell developed when it tried to spin, but I don't know and won't risk spinning it again.
I've run the washer through its cycles -- it will agitate and will try to spin, but simply won't drain. Is it possible that the hose or something is clogged?

If you bought a new washer and you still have a leak, i guess it was not the washer but where it drains into. Sink or stand pipe has a leak. unless you are useing the old drain hose from your old washer. Dry up everything and look for the sorse of water with a bright light when the washer drains .
this is the site to find out how to fix your washer. you have a broken drive coupling. it probably wont agitate or spin, but will fill and drain. you need to remove 2 screws from the control panel, hinge it back and then remove the 2 brass colored clips that hold the cabinet to the base. once you do then pull the entire cabinet forwards to a 45 degree angle and pull it off the base. then pull the 2 clips off pump and then 2 more on the motor. that will allow you to get to the drive coupling. you will find it to be broken. replace it with part number 285753a for about 15-20 bucks.
