Question about Washing Machines
After the washer fills with water it instantly starts to drain from under the machine onto the floor. This is before the cycle starts. What could cause this.
Check your hoses mostly the small hose going from the side of the tub to the water switch these come off a lot. you need to look and see if the seal is leaking from the center of the tub you do this by putting water in the tub and just looking around the bottom of the tub and transmission

Trace the deposits in the natural direction of waterflow (against gravity or centrifugal force) back to the source of the leak. Fill the machine again and run it through a cycle or two. Be patient; use your eyes and your brains. There is no magic, easy way to detect a leak.
The usual places are:
WATER VALVE: The guts of the fill solenoid valve sometimes will corrode. You may see water leaking from, or rust on the top of the solenoid. (See figure G-7A) Since the valves only open during a fill cycle, this may appear as an intermittent leak. The solution is to replace the valve.
PUMP: Usually from around the pulley seal. Some washer pumps have a hole that allows water to weep out when the seal starts to go bad. The solution is to replace or rebuild the pump.
BLEACH DISPENSERS: Bleach is VERY hard on plastic parts. If the bleach dispenser gets old and brittle, it can crack or break off, and the flush water can leak out.
