If the leaks happens during drain cycle, this is usually because of a leak on the drain pump hose, or because of a faulty drain pump that is leaking.

As the appliance must be taken apart and the pump may need replacement, it is better to call a repairman to do the job.

Check that leak is not from drain hose, from water supply hoses, or from gasket first.

Washer leaks when running


It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Rip in the rubber seal on my Kenmore Elite Quite Pak4 HE3plus..


you can get new seal at  www.repairclinic.com Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

  • 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. 

All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

  • 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.

Leaks


to jim, you may want to check the water pump closer, sometimes the water pump will leak a little during a cycle and the water will leak somewhere on the floor, not necessarily near the water pump.
to the second post (guest), it sounds like you have a bad water valve. the valve is not closing properly and causing water to leak thru.

Water leaks during rinse cycle


MAKE SURE TO FLUSH-OUT DRAIN LINE. WATER IF IT IS DRAINING TO SLOW WILL START LEAKING AROUND THE LOWER PART OF THE WASHER WHERE THERE IS A SAFTEY OVER FLOW ... IF YOURS IS A FREE STANDING TOP LOADER THE DRAIN HOSE IS IETHER SEPERATE OR FLOWS WITH A CHECK VALVE THAT HOOHS RIGHT TO YOUR FAUCET. MAKE SURE THE CHECK VALVE AT THE FAUCET CONNECTION IS FREE AND NOT STUCK.
