Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Have the unit panel taken of to see where the source of the water comes from. It could come from a leak or the water overflows or is not draining. Check for leaks in the valves or hose, as you inspect where the water comes from. To check if it is not draining see after wash if the water drains while the panel is taken off. IT could be caused by the water level sensor (usually a floating device on the tray) may have been dislocated or needs replacement or a faulty water pump.

It sounds like you have a leaking pump. The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.
You have now replaced the washer pump.

I have the same unit, I had to replace my drain pump and clean the entire machine out. THis unit has many design flaws however once they are corrected with new parts it is a good machine.

Check the hose that connects from the tub to the water pump. Next time you do a load remove the front panel and set the machine for a "small load" so there won't be alot of water. When the machine begins to agitate shut off the timer and move it to the final spin mode and turn it on. Here is where you want to watch that hose (maybe with a flashlight) as the tub begins to spin and the water is being pumped out, focus on where the hose connects to the drum. Usually as the spin increases the vibration will cause the hose connection to become loose and water will start spitting out. If you don't see any leaks in the hose, check the water pump itself. NOTE: DO NOT PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE MACHINE WHILE IT IS IN OPERATION! JUST LOOK IN AT THE HOSE, DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING AND KEEP YOUR HAND BEHIND YOUR BACK! THE OTHER HAND ON A FLASHLIGHT FROM OUTSIDE THE MACHINE.
