Re: washer leaking water from underneath
You will have to level the washer so that when its done spinning the drum is in the center if the machine. Just use a level or you can even use a glass of water if you don't have a level. once the legs of the washer are all right you should not have a problem. Happy Holidays bear001 Let me know

There are two real possibilities, both are in the washer. The first is that the gear box seal is failing, and the second is that the fabric softener dispenser needs to be dismantled and cleaned out.
"When the seal starts to fail, this oil floats up into the wash water in the form of small black drops. The stains are almost impossible to remove from clothing. Also, as the oil is leaking up, hot soapy water is leaking down into the transmission, which will eventually cause it to fail. As I recall, the seal wasn't difficult to replace, but to get access to it I basically had to disassemble the whole machine. The hardest part was pulling the agitator off the shaft - I used a slide hammer puller. I'd start by pulling the agitator off and see if you can access the transmission seal that way
my washer is not a front load or a fancy one, but my problem was also a leak coming from under the middle front of the washer. It was the water pump and once replaced, haven't had any more problems! It was a real simple fix, My husband was able to replace it in about 10 minutes, with a pump I found on ebay!! We found how to replace it on youtube!!!!!
Find your water pump and put your finger right under the bottom of it and rub it, see if you get water from there on your fingers. If so change your water pump. If that is not the problem, go underneath to where the drip is and follow the stream up to the starting point of the water leak, The bottom of the motor is only the lowest point for the water to drip off.
This is either your water pump, inlet valve, or you have a hole at the top of the outer drum. Try using the small load water level, if no leaks try medium. Also try seeing if the hoses are leaking. I also have seen mice bite holes in the drain lines. I hope i have helped you. God bless!
First check the hoses to the machine. If they leak the water follows the hoses and drips on floor. Also check the hose connection at the washer. They will leak inside. Next it may well be a water pump going out or the plastic hose that is under pressure when operating. The pump is in the middle of machine underneth - Sorry - Good luck
You may want to check the seal at the bottom of the agitator, there is a o-ring that keeps the water in the drum from leaking through the agitator as it spins. This is a cheap seal and will wear over a period of time from exposure to bleach and detergent. You need to take the agitator apart and remove it from the drum and you should see this seal at the base of the agitator were it meets the drum.
Replace the seal and reassemble, take the metal casing off the washer and fill the drum with a little water, wait, and see if the water is leaking under the drum. If no leak, try to reassemble and run the washer. If is still leaks then check http://www.applianceaid.com/genew.html
