    Thanks, we tried everything that you suggested and they all check out ok. Any other suggestions? The water is definitely coming from underneath.

    yes. the drain pump is held on by 3 plastic attachments. Most likely they have cracked, pulling the hose away from tub.

You bet there is. But first let's double check some common causes of leaks that may not be located under the machine. Step one is to check the drain hose behind the machine. If a machine gets pushed back too far it can kink or bind that hose and that can cause water to leak from underneath. If that looks okay check that the end of that hose is not inserted into the drain more than about 4 - 5." If it is poked down into the standpipe more than that it can cause a syphoning situation that can also cause leaking underneath. While you are back there check the hoses that lead up to the machine. Make sure the connections are dry. I can't tell you how many under machine leaks i have fixed that originated right there. Just run a finger under each hose connection. If finger gets wet the connection may need tightened ever so slightly with pliers. If all those check out fine let me know. We'll go deeper.

My top load hotpoint washer leaks in the bottom


You will have to look underneath to locate the point of the leak. If the washer is very old the tub may be rusted through or a hose or clamp could be the problem or a seal is gone.

Why does it not drain?


It "should drain automatically. If yours does not, please make sure the washer is properly leveled both front to back and side to side, make sure the drain hose is not inserted too far into the drain pipe and that there are no bends or kinks in the drain hose that might cause a blockage. Samsung also recommends cleaning the debris filter on a regular basis (at least once per month). To avoid spillage when cleaning the debris filter, it's important to first empty the rubber drain tube located next to the debris filter into a container. For more information, please refer to the User Manual."
