It is perhaps pump seal if rust is present around here that would confirm...You need a new pump..

My lg washing machine model wm2277h is leaking water

these units have a variety of places they can leak from ...unfortunately you will have to gain access..the most common area for leaks in this model is down at the botoom around the drain pump area and or hoses..they spin so fast that all kinds of items can go thrrough the system a pierce the hoses or shatter the pump assembly... gain access to the bottom of unit and run a small load cycle and watch it you should be able to locate the problem and buy your replacement part on line .. good luck hope this helps....

check your water pump for leaks. If its coming for the pump housing it will need to be replaced. Check the gasket area where the pump bolts to the block.. If water is not from the pump or around it check your hoses and clamps. check thermostat housing.

Water leaking from under washing machine. Took off cover. Hoses ans water pump look good. Seems water is leaking on spin cycle above the transmission.

90% of the time the water leaks from either the drain pump module or motor, or through the centre seal and bearing.Couple of not so common areas are the various pipes:small holes in the drum:the soap dish etc. Possibly remove the lid and place the washer on 4 bricks and then run the machine so you can pinpoint the area.

Squeeling water pump, with coolant around the pump

Most likely you have a bad water pump. When the water pump fails it leaks coolant through small holes on the top and bottom.
Before you condemn your water pump clean the area and make sure the leak is not coming from another area.

Have someone pressure test the cooling system - you likely have a head gasket leak

Moffat Heavy Duty Washing machine pump leak

It should have a wax/plastic plug in it. Kind of a pressure relief valve. If it's missing - replace the pump. It cannot be replaced.

Fisher and Paykel IWL12 leaking

First confirm the source of the leak. Dry the pump and all areas around it. Run a wash cycle and then check pump again. You should be able to see where the leak starts from. If it is definitely the pump, it is easy to remove. Take off wire plug & earth wire. Hold out the white plastic clip on the side of the pump and rotate pump quarter turn anti clockwise. Pump will then come out. Do the reverse to put pump back. Make a note of which way the pump faces before you take it out. Also, make sure power is unplugged before you do any work.
