Hi the first thing you want to check is your level that your washing on low medium or high load. make sure your setting it to the right water level setting.as for the water comming out of the bottom you might want to make sure you don't have a hose loose or that it is leaking.the tub on the washer could also have a leak in it so check those things.

Remove the hose and bend it in circiles see if yo see any cracks in the hose if you do replace it or if it's long enough cut out the bad part and replace it. Alos clamps wear out ver time so try replacing the clamps too.
Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.
The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.
Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.
During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.
Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.
Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.
Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.
Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.
make sure to look really close all it takes is alittle whole in that seal anywhere to cause a leak try to look close while it is running but first dry everything you can and then run it. also make sure your door glass is clean if it is leaking down the front just alittle dirt or hair can cause a leak aswell
Water sprayed out of ( the leaky washers in the hot water shut off valve which need to be replaced. They are inside all valves and wear out in time from normal use! Or you can have a bad solder joint at the junction between the hot water shut off valve or the the pipe joint! these washers in any shutoff valve can leak intermittently till they get worse and then leak all the time! you should be able to stand there and watch it as you open and close the shut off valve again and again , and then stay there and watch it start leaking! Or when you are opening it and closing the valve 4 times straight you may feel a trickle of water from the valve stem!!!! This means washers in the valve stem need to be replaced!!! Get a new plumber !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm no plumber but I do under stand this!
