Re: leaking from the bottom
More then likely you pump is cracked. Easy and cheap to repair though luckily. The pump is located right at the front of the machine on the front of the motor. In spin all the water is getting sucked out through the pump. It probably got cracked due to something getting sucked into it like a coin or something and breaking the housing. You can get a new pump for around 30 dollars at your local appliance repair shop. Make sure you get some hose clamps too though or you may have water all over your floor when you take the pump off. Just ask at the appliance place and they should have some. You will need two clamps. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and I am glad I could help you out.

Well, the only time the washer (speedqueen) is noisy on spin is if one or both the bearings are faulty. Normally when you get a leak, it means the hub/flange and seal kit need replacement and this also includes the top bearing because when soap suds leak past the seal assembly it drips directly onto the bearing. The acidic properties in the soap suds eats the grease in the bearing which ends up becoming defective. One can also get an anoying squeek if a bottom base gasket is worn or removed. This would be audible even on wash cycle.Conclusion, check the bearing on top of gearbox.
Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
are you sure it only happens in the spin cycle? and is the leak comming from the bottom front of the washer? most front laoders will leak due to a tear in the belows. that is the rubber boot that seals the washer tub to the front panel. if there was a hole or a tear in the bellows it should have a leak inthe wash cycle also. but there are also other possibilitys too.but its strange to only leak in a spin cycle due to the washer is extracting the water and not adding it. so check and see if it leaks in the wash cycle to and get back to me and we can go from there. looking through my training manual i dont see what could cause a leak in just the spin cycle
