Re: kenmore washer model 70 leaking
More than likely the pump. Very easy fix. To keep from being redundant I prepared a page on direct drive coupling removal and replacement. The pump must be removed to fix this item therefore it pertains to your problem. Plus you can watch for leaks better with the cabinet removed. To read click HERE.

If you bought a new washer and you still have a leak, i guess it was not the washer but where it drains into. Sink or stand pipe has a leak. unless you are useing the old drain hose from your old washer. Dry up everything and look for the sorse of water with a bright light when the washer drains .
You need to get a one way valve fitted in the pipe just before it hits the main waste pipe. This will ensure that as soon as any backpressure is exerted that the valve closes and your sink etc will not fill with waste. This is a potential health hazard to you so I would suggest it is fitted ASAP.
your just seeing the water that is leaking dureing the wash cycle unplug washer there will be 2 screws on the header panel 1 on each side take them outgently pull header panel to you then flipupunplug wiring harness thas to the cabnet there will be 2 clips 1 on each sideuse a flat screwdrive and pry back they will come out tip cabnet back to you the whole thig will come off look at the pump in the front it has a weep hole in it see if it has been leaking from there
You need to remove the kick panel (under the front door). There are two screws at the very bottom of the kick panel, one in each corner.
This will give you visibility to see where the leak is coming from.
On the right hand side is the drain pump. The black hose goes from the pump,out the rear and into your drain pipe. It is secured by a clamp and is one possible source of leak.
If that connection is dry, look underneath the tub where the two parts, front and back of drum, come together. there is an o ring sealing the two sections and this is another source of water leak. (major problem is this is leaking)
Failing this you will just have to trace the source of the leak. You may have to take off the top of the washer to check the water inlet hoses which run on the top of the machine but would still show as a leak under the machine. Good luck.
the drain pipe in the wall needs to be as tall as the cabnet of the washer. if it is the see how much hose is going into the drain pipe. should only be about 9 to 12 inches into the pipe. any more than that will cause a syphon and suck the water out as it fills
