Have maytag side by side where the water goes in the back it is leaking bad

The water inlet control valve in the washer is broken and needs to be replaced.
Turn the water off at the wall as it will continue to leak until you can get it repaired.

Samsung washer is leaking water from under the front of the machine. not from the door. the drain pump works.

after it leaks, place machine on its side, look for wet spot, may be popped off hose or leak at pump, or rarely cracked drum if plastic.

Leaking from the seams of the washer when I turn it on

sound like you have a hole in the hose between the pump and tub if not you eather have a hole in the tub or the seal and bearing where the gear case goes through is worn out realy by ir this is the case you would have had some water leaking for a while though.

Water comes out the bottom of washer as fast as it goes in the top

hazy, it's possible it's running out your pump. You need to pull the cabinet off to get a real look at where the leak is coming from. Check out the pics...and post back.
