Question about Washing Machines
That is probably a leaky pump. Pretty dang easy fix IF you knows the trick. HERE is an award winning short film on how to access the innards of this precious piece of machinery. After looking over the movie you might want to take a gander at the page title top loader blues.

Hello, the most likely cause is the pump. Kenmore's are direct drive machines which means they do not have a belt. The pump is hooked up directly to the motor. To confirm this is the pump tip the machine back so that you can access it underneath. Make sure you wedge something underneath so it does not fall on you. Next take a look where the pump joins onto the motor shaft, this is where you will find the leak. This pump is a sealed unit so you will have to replace the whole pump. You can do this by removing the inlet and outlet pipes. Next with a screwdriver release the 2 clips holding the pump and remove the pump.....reassemble with new pump in reverse order. Good Luck!! If you have any further question's please feel free to comment. Mike

Your leak could be coming from the rubber door seal. Inspect all the way around the rubber seal paying particular attention to the areas behind the rubber seal where it meets the wash tub. They wear with age and can develop small holes. When they start leaking it appears like water coming from under the machine. I hopes this helps.
