The pressure chambers and side tanks are prone to clogging up, you can back flush them but with limited success. By the time you have removed and flushed them you are just as well to replace them. Also there is a corrugated pipe about 1 inch in diameter on some models running down to the sump that blocks and water will overflow from the vent on the side tank. The sides will come off, usually 2 screws down the front frame visible with the door open and one at the back. The humming you are hearing with be the drain pump running as it is thinking it is flooded as there is water in the base causing the machine to end its program and drain before its finished and showing 0.01 on the screen. Hope this helps.
If its leaking during the fill cycle, its one of the water valves (solenoids) or associated hoses, loose clamps, etc. If its leaking during draining its the drain hoses, pump, clamps etc. Easiest way to tell. Pull it out, if you can remove the back, run it and look for the leak. Just don't touch anything while its running, you don't want to lose a finger or get electrocuted.
Yes it is the O-Ring part number 134146100 that is failing. I just had this happen on my washer. It involves a significant tear down of the machine. I have the service manual that I found on the internet showing how to tear it down. I am pretty sure I found it here on this site in fact.
Remove the cabinet to access the water pump. It is attached to the motor front/center. It will be leaking. No repair, only replacement will stop the leak. Remove 2 screws on the right and left sides of the control console. The console is hinged. Fold it to the rear of the machine. Unplug the lid switch connector. Remove 2 clips holding the back panel to the cabinet base. Remove the cabinet. Motor and pump are at the bottom center.
If this only happens when the machine is filling the hose leading to the top of the tub may be leaking. Before it fills this hose is disconnected from the water supply by a closed solenoid valve. There are two valves which feed into a common hose that comes up to the top of the tub where the water runs into the tub. The leak does not happen after the tub fills because all the water leaks out and no new water runs in. These hoses are usually very small and very inexpensive and held on with clamps. They can usually be replaced by removing a small panel near the hose attachment location.
