It could be a hole in one of the hoses or a possible leaking pump. tip the unit back so you can see underneath. Not all the way though. I usually prop it against the wall. you should see the pump it has 2 hoses going to it one from the tub to pump and one from the pump to the drain. Check those, check the hoses, check the tub for a hole. More than likly it's a bad pump

I have a top load washer that is leaking water I pour water in an it comes out the bottom and I can't find where it's coming out

top right of photo is where the water flows through. so most likely in there. there is also a nipple on the side of the bowl that should have a pipe connected to it. check that. if you get under it, dry it, then put water in. the water is going to give itself away.

How to clear an F21 error on Whirpool Duet Sport washer

If your whirlpol duet sport washer stops and gives you an F21 error, DON't call the repairman. It takes approximately 4 minutes, a screwdriver, a pot to hold water and a pair of strong arms to fix it. First, on the front, you will need to remove the 2 or 3 screws that are holding on the bottom panel (feel under the front panel of the washer). Once you have removed the panel, on the right you will see the end of a pipe, it has a cover that you can "pinch & twist" to remove...well this is where you need the strong arms because it is in there good to keep the water sealed in. Also, this is when you put a pot or something underneath because all the water in the washer will come pouring out. If you need to, unscrew the cover enough to let out some water then screw it back into place enough to stop the water while you empty your container. Once all the water is gone, unscrew the cover completely and empty the "filter". It usually contains ladies undergarments or small baby items. Finally, close it all up, pat yourself on the back and relax for the next 20 minutes, because you just saved yourself a lot of money by looking online to fix it yourself! Congratulations.

Washer won't start. water pours down sewer pipe

Hi, If the water is going out the drain hose, raise the drain hose so that its highest point is as high as the top of the washer. This should take care of the issue. If the water is coming out of the bottom of the machine, tip it back against the wall and look under the washer to see if a hose has broke or came loose.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

The drum seal is bad. The seal allows the center to come up through the tub and the tub to rotate around it, It usually has a rubber membrane that flexes so the tub can rock around. The rubber tears and the water runs right out. If you can, disassemble the washer and change the seal, otherwise the washer is toast. Sorry! You can verify this by pouring water in from a bucket. If this water doesn't run through then it is the hose from the fill valve to the water outlet under the lid.

The water pours out of the bottom of the washing machine

I think that you have a bad water jet. They are located inside the cabinet at the bottom of the washing machine. Mine was on the left rear corner, inside the cabinet to the side of the tub. Follow where the water hose goes into the washer. You will be able to fix it yourself. I didn't lay the washer down, the cabinet panels come off. Good luck. I have faith that this will be a breeze for you.
