When I wash a load of clothes, I have water coming out from under my washer. It seems to be more and more with each load. I can't tell where it's coming from and don't even know where to start looking. Any ideas?

Is this a new washer or has there been a change in it's functionality?
Front loading washers do use very little water. One must be careful not overload them and also to be sure to use the detergent that is made for them. Can you see the clothes and water sloshing around? Try a small load with HE detergent and make sure to use the very small amount recommended and let me know if you still have a problem.
If this is a HE unit it's probably fine. Front load units determine how much water to add based on how big of a load you put in. As long as water is flowing (waterfalling) over the clothes as the machine tumbles then it is fine. Try a larger load and see if the water level increases.
Front load washing machins are very water conservative. In fact a lot of moldern F/L washers use so little water that it doesn't even come up to the bottom of the door.
If the machine completes it's cycle, it obviously 'thinks' it's getting enough water to continue..
IMPORTANT...Do not overuse detergent!! This can seriously shorten the life of a F/L...! You're treating the amount of water...NOT the amount of clothes...Happy Washing
A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth.======= It's noisy
Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
The high speed spin of a front load washer should normally do a good job of getting squeezing out the water but if there is an oversudsing condition that makes it hard for the drain pump to operate then the suds and water will just stay there. First make sure there is no actual clog in the drain line then run a load with no soap or detergent and see what happens. It's always better to use a low suds detergent with this type of machine
