SOURCE: Water Leak inside drum
That's because the water fills from around the door bellow via the dispenser. Any small water leakage will probably go unoticed because it drains into the seam in the rubber boot into the wash tub UNDER the wash basket. As it accumulates, it will eventually fill to a point where it is visible in the wash basket. It sounds like you have a water inlet valve that is failing. That's the only way water gets into the washer. It passes from the the water taps, through the inlet valve, through the flowmeter and into the dispenser. If the inlet valve is leaking, you probably have a diaphragm in the valve not closing properly, or a bad solenoid. I would recomend replacing it. To access, you will need to remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws in the back of the washer that hold the top panel in place. With the screws removed, the panel slides back, then off. The water inlet valve is located on the left-hand side in the rear of the washer (facing from the front) where the fill hoses connect. You will need to shut off the water supply, disconnect main power, remove the electrical connections to the solenoids, remove the any hoses and finally the mounting screw to remove. If you post back with your complete model number (located aorund the door opening), I can provide you with a part number. If you have further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I was just about to call the service teck when I decided I shouldn't be this stupid and try and fix it myself.
I took the tray out and looked in with a flashlight.
Cleaned the tray and then checked the drainage hole inside the opening where the tray normally feeds the machine the soap.
I found a inside of the liquid XXXKing laundry cap partially blocking the drain.
Took it out and works fine.

It's quite possible. First see the Sears parts list for your washer with diagrams of all major parts.
Then see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for these washers and check the troubleshooting section.

This problem is commonly attributed to either a leaking water inlet valve, or a pressure switch malfunction. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem and repair as necessary:
