Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked? Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker

Check the pump and the inlet valves. The pump is located behind the drain line, and the two inlet valves are located in behind the knobs up top and can be removed by removing two screws up top and then removing the screws on the back side

Check the inlet valve hoses, even if inlet is at the back, the water may drip down and flow on the front part on the machine. There you also have the PUMP, a faulty pump may leak intermittently.

If you haven't removed the cold water hose from the washer's connector, you may be in luck. The valve assembly very often has a cone-shaped screen inserted into the assembly that is prone to clogging. Before having a 'whole house' filter, this was a regular task and could be easily done with an old toothbrush.
If there is no screen or trapped particles, the mixing valve assembly itself can fail. These are poorly made but cheap and easy to replace when faulty. Most are held in place with a single screw and have two or three leads connected with 'quick-disconnect' type terminals. Part of the back of the washer must be removed but that too involves normally only a half-dozen or so sheet metal screws.
Once the rear of the machine is accessible, it is only about a 15-20 minute job.
The part itself is used widely in many machines so could be available from dealers (with service offered) or from appliance parts companies.

Water leaking from vent hose outlet

Does your User Manual say anything about this being likely to happen?
Sounds as if there is a throw-up of water into this hosing in the spin cycle or some such thing?

Do check your water hoses are tightly screwed. I have seen cases where fine jets of water spray into odd places which cannot be seen when the machine is backed to the wall.

Drum is leaking how do I GET to it?

How do you know it is the drum? It could be your water inlet hose ( where the water fills the drum) My wife loaded up some laundry in our washer and moved that fill hose slightly. The pump fitting could also be loose. I assume you already checked the fittings on the back of the washer.

My washer leaks and we checked the pumps and hoses. Pumps and hoses are fine. The leak seem to be coming from the top portion of the washer during agitation and spinning. Thanks Lian

Sounds like p/n 22001299, tub cover and gasket assembly, if it's leaking from the top or upper part of the washer tub. It could also be the bleach hose or air vent hose as well.

Unplug the unit from power, pop the top and look for water tracks down the side of the drum.

Or p/n 22002417 seal, which is at the top center of the drive shaft.

Let me know what you find.

Maytag A482 washer from 1985. Leaking water from

probably has a pin hole leak where it has been rubbing the tub. Does the tub have a seal at the top of it where it meets the top. Could be the seal is going bad.

Maytag washer

Many of the maytag toploaders have a rubber fill hose at the top of the outer drum.
Sometimes if the machine is fully loaded (or overloaded), during the spin cycle if clothes are above the top of the drum they can actually knock the rubber flange of the hose out of the drum. Then when the machine fills with water, it will dump it down the outside of the tub and it will appear that the water is leaking from the top and side of the drum... Fix it by snapping the fill hose flange back into the hole in the top part of the drum... let me know how you do or need more help...

It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.

The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 

Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 

During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 

All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.

Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 

Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 

Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

Water leaking

If it's the hose your talking about, the white tube connected to your tub is called and "air dome" hose. It connects to your pressure switch to shut off your fill valve when selecting load sizes. The hose should connect to a fitting somewhere near the base of the wash tub. If it is leaking, generally mildew inside this tube can cause it slip off it's fitting or lose it's seal. Also the hose can stretch out of shape over time and lose its seal. If you have enough slack in the house, you can pull the hose off the fitting and cut about half an inch off the end, clean the fitting, and reattach. This should reseal it. If the hose itself is leaking, you should replace the entire length of house from the tub to the pressure switch. You can find plastic hose of this type at any hardware store. I hope this helps.
