MITS MAKING A BANGING NOISE,ALSO WATER IS COMING OUT OF THE BOTTOM.COULD IT BE THE DOOR SEAL.

The banging is most likely caused by failing shock absorbers ( there are two plastic shock absorbers inside the back cover that usually keep the tub from thrashing around. It is not unusual for these to fail). Get someone to remove the back cover plate - essentially the one piece back plate held on by screws- and (carefully) view the machine in motion. The shock absorbers are the white 1" 'sticks' on either side of the drum. One or both may be broken or lost their dampening capability. These are reasonably easily replaced (DIY) and cost about $35-$55 online for a pair. You can take each one out and inspect it to confirm it is damaged or doesnt dampen motion.
There are lots of places to leak from and viewing the leak while the machine is operating is the best approach. Again , you can do this from the back if you take off the metal panel. Be careful and you can turn the timer to individual steps in the cycle to speed up the isolation of the problem, and turn it off when appropriate.
Another way to find the leaking problem if the amount of water is small, is to push a piece of newspaper under the front of the washing machine all the way to the back. Then keep pulling it out during the cycles and see where on the paper the leak is (front, sides, back, center, etc). This can be done without moving the washer and will provide insight into what component is leaking.
You should also feel around the external water hose connections to see if they are dripping... this is usually the #1 cause and is easily fixed by tightening the hose connector.

First of all, what kind of a loud is it making? Is it a loud squeak, clunk, bang, or jet engine sound?
If it is a loud jet engine sound, then your tumbler bearing is wearing out. You could try oiling it, but [probably you will have to replace it. It’s a big job and even if you do it yourself, the best and easiest way to do it is expensive.
I recommend first of all ordering a repair manual. Or at least see if the parts come with detailed instructions on how to take out the old bearing and install the new. You will probably have to replace the entire outer drum assembly. It's much more expensive in parts to do it that way than to just replace the bearings and seals, but much much easier and faster. Personally, I've replaced the entire drum assembly and also tried to replace just the bearings and seals. In the end I wasted the money on the bearings and seals and got an new assembly. I'd recommend just going for the new assembly and saving time.
