The only way to determine where the leak is coming from is to remove the lower kick panel directly below the door. Remove the panel by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. If you prop the front feet up this will give you better access (a 2 x 4 works well).

With the panel removed inspect the rubber door bellow. If the front counterweight (gray concrete block on the front of the tub) is wet, the bellow is leaking. Pull the rubber folds back and look for any rips or tears. If the bellow requires replacing, or if you need to simply tighten the clamps, the following link will explain how:

NOTE: Check the plastic dispenser hose on the left hand side of the bellow to ensure it is inserted all the way through the rubber to the flange joint. Sometimes this dispenser hose will slip behind the bellow and allow water to seep inside the cabinet of the washer.

Check the drain pump to ensure the filter cap is secure and not leaking. The pump is in the front directly below the wash tub. If the pump IS leaking, make sure the filter cap is tight and all hose clamps are snug. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

Check all hoses the run from the wash tub to the pump, and from the pump to the standpipe at the wall for any signs of cracks or tears.

If the leak is coming from the center portion under the tub, the tub seal is breached and needs to be replaced. This is not an easy repair and will require some extensive disassembly to repair. (Cross that hurdle when the time comes).

Any replacement parts you may need can be purchased at,,, or You can use any web source you like, but these I have found, offer great service with competitive pricing. Shop all of them for the best prices. Hopefully you won't need any parts.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Duet washer leaks during use; rinse cycle?

Check the water pump hose connections and the water pumps housing bolts themselves could have loosened from vibration. more likely the hose connections on the pump itself though. Hope this helps.
