At the bottom of the washer is instructions on how to drain the water inside the washer. A small hose is contained at the bottom right hand corner with a white plug (you need to pull on it hard). Once you remove the plug from the small drain hose it will drain all the washer water.
Before you do all this make sure you disconnect the electrical wire or turn off the breaker switch to the washer machine.

Thanks for the model number. The leakage is very likely from the drain hoses that are connected to the drain pump. For your model the drain pump is located at the bottom front behind the bottom plate. You will have to remove the screws holding the bottom front plate. Once you get this out you can access the drain pump and hoses. Either one of the two hoses (inlet from drum or outlet to laundry drain hose) could have burst or lost hose clamp. Need to fix this. Also check the laundry tub drains are clear and there is no back water into washing machine.
Check out this possibilities for water not draining in the washing machine:
This problem relates to the
hose connected to drain pump. The drain hose should not be in laundry tub more
then 4 to 5 inches. Measure it and if it’s more then 4 to 5 inch then cut the
excess hose in the tub. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet,
install an air gap/siphon break assembly. But if the drain pump hoses are ok
checked then this problem relates to slow drain of water from laundry tub. You
can solve this issue by cleaning the drain pump blockages and dirt build up this
will make the flow of water proper in the draining of the laundry tub. This will help.thanks.
Maintaining a clean washer helps to ensure that the laundry looks its brightest and smells its freshest.
Follow a few simple strategies on a regular basis, and your washer will produce the results that you want. Fortunately, most of these cleaning steps are only necessary on an as needed basis. If you prefer, complete most of them once a month for a sparkling clean washing machine. Follow these helpful pointers.
Wipe the outside of your washer with a soft cloth and a mild solution of soap. This is especially important if you use the washer lid as a landing station for your laundry.
Whenever a load of wash is extremely dirty and leaves a bit of residue on the interior or inner tub of your washer, use a clean, damp cloth to wipe it clean.
If your washer is equipped with a lint filter, remove all lint accumulation on a regular basis such as after every wash cycle.
Clean the bleach and fabric softener dispensers as soon as they show any sign of dirt or residue. Avoid using laundry detergent to clean the fabric softener dispenser since it may interact with the fabric softener the next time you use it.
If desired, apply a coating of appliance wax following the instructions provided with the container. This helps to protect the exterior of your washer.
If your washing machine is set up to drain into a laundry tub, you should have a strainer placed in the drain to gather all traces of lint and larger particles of dirt. If the plumbing becomes clogged, your washer may not work properly. A clogged drain can prevent the water from draining properly. Remove any build-up in the strainer after each washing cycle.
Clean the washing machine about once a month by running a hot water cycle with bleach. Be sure that you do not use more than the recommended dosage of bleach for your washer. This information may be visible on the bleach dispenser or in the washer's manual.
Clean underneath the lid of the washer using a soft cloth or sponge and clean water or a mild soap solution. While you are at it, clean the top of the washer that sits beneath the lid as well.
If you have hard water and mineral deposits have appeared on your machine, refer to your manual for removal instructions. If you do not have the manual, contact the manufacturer by telephone or email. Additionally, you can search online for possible suggestions. Certain types of materials may not react well to specific cleaning methods; therefore, it is essential that you check before you use anything such as vinegar or a cleaning agent that includes vinegar.
If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
i had what sounds like a similar problem. i complained of our laundry smelling sour then finally like sour sewage and a flooded laundry room. i was told that when its not draining properly, it can create a siphon-effect and actually pull the dirty water back out of the drain lines-yuk! i hope this isnt true.
there was a baby sock stuck in the pump preventing it from draining properly. hope your problem can be remedied as easily.
as for the smelly clothes, i always add 1/2 cup white vinegar to each load. it does wonders for odors.

It won't drainIf your washer won't drain, check these:It spins, but doesn't pump It doesn't spin or pumpIt pumps, but the water returnsIt spins, but doesn't pumpIf your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.It doesn't spin or pumpIf your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

Plug off the mains. First drain out all your water by lowering the exit hose into a bucket or drain. You have to look for screws below the front kick-panel, the panel comes down & out. The pump is on the right side. Be prepared for dirty water.Inside the big flexible tube (coming from the tub bottom) is the filter, be prepared to find all sorts of junk here, clean out.Examine your pump also, clean out the impeller.Carefully refit all.Your machine would be fine.Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.
If you have a water softener or very soft water, soap will suds up more than if your water is normal or hard, so you'll need to use less than recommended. Obviously soap breaks down the dirt, but the dirt also breaks down the soap, so if your clothes are not very dirty to start with, you'll need less soap than if they were more dirty. Soap can also be stored in laundry like towels and cleaning rags and when combined with the laundry soap will suds more. You can try raising the leveling legs in the front to tip the washer back. This will help the water drain back into the tub instead of pooling on the boot. You can also try using the 'extra rinse' option. Keep cutting back on how much soap you use until your laundry is not as clean as it should be. You might be surprised how little soap you can use!
