I think the drums bearing seal is shot
you need to replace the seal and the bearings

or.. you need to check the drain hoze pump and water recycle systems for leaks

try to fill it a little manualy and see if it leaks
use a bit of newspaper to see whats going on under it

otherwise its a de hoze it take it out and lay it down look see where its coming from

SOURCE: Water leak under the rotating drum

Have you removed the front panel?

If not remove front panel two screws 5/16 on bottom

Start the washer in a cycle. look with a flash lite and look for leak.

It maybe the rubber boot.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I will also need model number, because a AWS52NW is a top loader model number not a front loader.

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.

SOURCE: speed queen washer leaking & won't pump out water .....

Ok, so the leak isn't from the bottom?
If it is spinning before pumping out, the water very likely will rise out of the top due to centripetal force.
At this point, I would lean towards the timer being bad, since it is the "brains" of the outfit. The contacts that tell things to kick in (and stop) all are on this little item... at least on all the washers I have dealt with.
I don't see an age or model number for this machine, other than speed queen, so I really couldn't give much more advice without that.

It is probably the pump. Run the washer with the front off of it. The pump is on the bottom of the motor.

Easy repair.

Speed queen top load washer leaks


Is it a bad leak like it will not fill up with water or just a small leak.
If it will not fill up it most likely is the tub seal. If it is a small leak it might be the water pump seal. There are two screws at the base of the machine that takes a 5/16" or a 8mm socket to remove them.
remove the front cover and start the machine filling and watch for the water DO NOT STICK YOUR HAND IN SIDE THERE WHILE THE MACHINE IS ON!!!! Here is the repair manual for your machine.
If I was you I would repair the machine instead of replacing it. these are awesome machines I have 20 of them in my laundromat that are 19 years old and still trucking every day. the seal is some work you will need some tools and a 3 jaw puller to replace it but you can rent them at most auto parts stores. If it is the pump that is a simple fix just remember to clean and grease the end of the shaft .

here is the repair manual for your machine and the number should be AWZS52

When the spin cycle begins the washer vibirates and moves on the floor. After the spin cycle reaches the maxium speed it stops. The springs are fine, but what else could be wrong?


The machine is probably not leveled properly. To level the machine, partly fill it with water. Make sure that the drum is standing in the middle of the machine and then adjust the machine until the water is at the same level all around at the nearest set of holes to the water. Check that the drum is still in the center of the outer drum. Make sure that the adjusting feet are all firmly on the floor and that you cannot rock the machine at all by hand. A top loader must be 100% level or it will shake.

These machine like to be loaded to capacity. Under loading them is the major cause of shaking. Try loading the drum all the way lightly filled but not packed. Another thing to look for is that it was installed properly. It is very important with theses machine that they be leveled properly at install. If this was not done shaking can occur.
