Stop the washer and clean up the water. Confirm that the water is not leaking when the washer is off. The leak can occur before the electric valves either where the hose connects or from the electric solenoid valves just inside the washer. The situation is more likely true if the hoses are stressed by being bent to one side.
If dry then confirm if it is the hot or cold by running the machine with the cold service valve open and hot closed.
It is likely that a tissue or paper product was included with the wash load. The series 70 does not have a lint trap. At the hose connection to the house drain lint has been known to build up restricting the emptying. This buildup would not introduce lint into the washer.
If the water temperature is very very cold and you use powder detergent it will not dissolve completely into the water and will leave a white residue on the fabrics.
Try running a short load in the washer allowing for ample water to rinse out the machine before the next wash load.
There is a clear plastic hose that runs from the load selection switch to the side of the washer drum. This hose connects the fill sensor to the load switch. without it being in good condition and connected properly the washer won,t get a signal that it's full.
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.
well you can try filling the outer tub separately.with what you mentioned, the problem is certainly not with the drain hose or the pump. fill the tub separately with some water and if the leak is seen then the problem is certainly with the outer tub corrosion or crack on it.
Ingllis washers have a bad habit of picking up socks, small items anyway in the drain protector hose, slows down water flow but ensures the items dont get sucked into the impeller.
from the underneath you shhould be able to see a clear cup sized container with a hose in the side, held in with hose clamps. check if this is filled with any clothing, undo the hose clamps and you should bew able to empth the cup with fingers
