I had a similiar problem with my washer back in Sept. I discovered it was actaully leaking from under the washer, IAt first it appeared as though it was running down from the top of the washer somewhere. I pulled the washer out and had my son hold it at an angle to see if I could determine where exactly it was leaking from.That's when I discovered it was actually cominig from the Plastic Pump located directly under the tub. In the center part of the pump, there is a circle, surrounded by grey sealant, (on mine), straight from the manufacturer and within a year and a half, the sealant developed a hole which caused mine to eventually pour water from it while filling. It was very simple to fix and only $50.00 for a new pump. Sure Beat those hard to swallow service fees. Good Luck!

    If it leaks only when filling then I sugest checking the water inlet flume at the back of the machine. (The flume is where the water enters the tub) Sometimes the flume will get bounced around and has to be re-aligned if it hasn't broken.



well I found out the problem was the pump itself, it had stared to leak, but the other solution could also have been the culprit.
Thanks for you help.
Spyglass94, this was the problem for a top loading Kenmore, leaking water out of the bottom while it was filling with water.

My Kenmore 700 series washer has been leaking water. When the tub is filling with water, water seems to leak along the front bottom edge of the machine in several areas. I'm left with a huge puddle of...

First ck to see if your water pump is leaking. It normally leaks when the machine is running not just filling. Also look at all the attaching rubber hoses under the machine and see if water is leaking down the back right side of the machine and then running around the frame to the front long shot but possible.

Leak in machine

You need to turn the taps off when not in use. Some machines actually stipulate this in their manual. My new machine certainly did (yet it was never an issue with my old machine)

When my husband came home he took the washer apart and it was the pump. Small pin hole leak in this glob of gray sealer that seals the two plastic parts together. Just been waiting to fail, I'm sure. Thanks for your help.

Kenmore HE4T Washer Leak

there are 2 possible causes.
inlet valve leaking - turn water off and if water fill stops, it indicates valve leaking
valve being powered when machine off. this is very unlikely but to check, disconnect washer and see if problem stops
also, if drain is plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap, every time you empty the sink, some of the water will flow into the machine. to cure this, take the drain hose as high as possible under the sink in a swan neck
