We just had our problem fixed.
New hose from dispenser to washer MUST go over the ridge. NOT just up to it.
Over the ridge and then apply the clamp!
Reason? Because there is a small hole on the back side of the ridge. Why? We do not know but it was on our old ring assembly and on the new one.
The tech attached and clamped the new hose and we could still see the water spurting out. When we felt around...we found the small hole. We examined the old ring and the new ring. Both had a small hole. A deliberate hole.
Instead of running the hose up to the ridge, the tech decided to pull the new rubber hose OVER the ridge which inturn covered the hole, and then he placed the clamp over it and tightened it and NO LEAK!
We had changed the basket/tub ring and the control for all the water dispencing and this was probably the problem all along.
Open the top, unclamp the ring for the rinse hose and pull the hose over the plastic ridge and re clamp

We had the same problem with water leaking from bottom. The repair man checked and found no problems, but told us that we shouldn't be using regular detergent- it suds too much and somehow causes the leak. We started using HE detergent and haven't had that problem since. A year later however the stupid thing stopped working altogether-but from another cause.
