My washing machine is leaking water but it is not coming from the hoses. It seems to be leaking from the back bottom (right by the floor) and when my husband put is hand on the upper back of the machine he could feel water spraying out there. The serial or model number of my machine is RTW4340SQ0.

Most of the time it is the door seal, open the door and check all the way round. check the sump hose and pump, sometimes it can leak from the soap draw hose to the outer tub, but not in your case I think. In most cases this can be fixed easy and is the door seal. to find out if it is coming from the front or the back, just place some news paper on the floor under the machine and take a look to see if it is the front or the back. a door seal is about 15/25 pounds retail
Sometimes, what may seem like a washing machine leaking from bottom locations is actually one that leaks slowly from other spots. Slow leaks can accumulate beneath your washing machine making it seem like you have a bottom leak. For more help identifying the exact point of the leak, see Washing machine leaking.
Bottom leaks may be better identified using a newspaper. Just dry the floor and lay the newspaper beneath the washing machine before you test for leaks. Darkened sections map out your water leak. This method is not always foolproof, however. The best diagnosis will come from a qualified service professional inspecting your machine.
If your washing machine is leaking from bottom in the rear, you may need a replacement pump and professional installation. The leak could also be caused by a faulty air dome seal or a hole in the tub. For more troubleshooting steps to tackle that leak, see Washing machine leaking from bottom. I hope that helps!
Where is it leaking from? Back or bottom. Hose might not be connected right on back if it's from the bottom, check hose that connects from bottom of basin to pump. May have come off and needs to be put back on and tightened back up.
Sure sounds like a hole or crack in the tub. Unplug power, shut off water, and disconnect the hoses. Tilt the washer onto its front and look underneath. Use a light to inspect the tub bottom and sides for a hole or crack. If it is small enough you might be able to plug it with silicone sealant.
you can remve a few screws(3) across the bottom of the unit.( just above your "add-on" drawer. 3 torx 20 screws and after removing the acess panel youll get abetter look as to where exactly you water is coming from
Our WM2077CW just started the water leaking from underneath. We unplugged the electrical cord and disconnected the hoses (water, drain). We then removed the inspection plate from the back and checked for wet hoses. The big black hose on the bottom was a little wet. On careful examination we found a small hole that looked like a material fatigue failure at the point where the accordion part of the hose met with the solid part of the hose near the main drum connection. I suspect this is may occur in other LG washers of the same design. Unless your floor is perfectly level it's hard to tell whether coming from the left or right side really indicates where underneath the water is coming from.
