Leaking water from bottom
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-
