Possible the water is coming out of the wall standpipe. Plug off the wall first.
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

I can't be sure without looking at the machine but I have had several of these type of machines the get cloths under the agitator "wash plate thing" in the bottom of the basket. This will eventually clog up the pump but stuff that hangs out in there can really get to smelling after a while. Try removing the wash plate and see if you see anything under there. In the future make sure you use a lingerie bag for all small items to prevent them from getting stuck under the wash plate.

Leaking water Maytag Washer

If the connecting hoses is not a problem then it is probably be the pump present inside the machine.It helps in moving and draining the water.If it is not working then such problems might arise.It is best that you ask the plumber to replace it instead of you doing it

Maytag washer

Many of the maytag toploaders have a rubber fill hose at the top of the outer drum.
Sometimes if the machine is fully loaded (or overloaded), during the spin cycle if clothes are above the top of the drum they can actually knock the rubber flange of the hose out of the drum. Then when the machine fills with water, it will dump it down the outside of the tub and it will appear that the water is leaking from the top and side of the drum... Fix it by snapping the fill hose flange back into the hole in the top part of the drum... let me know how you do or need more help...

Mold and smell from Maytag washer

The mold will be growing in the upper parts of the agitator basket above the water line. Spray these areas with a bleach/water mixture using a spray bottle. Turn off the hot water valve to your washer. Disconnect the hose connected to this valve. Connect a leak free garden hose to the valve. Connect a garden sprayer to the other end of the garden hose. Turn the hot water valve back on. Check for leaks. Use the garden sprayer to rinse and remove the mold. Be careful to keep all of the water in the agitator basket. Turn off the hot water valve. Reconnect the hose from the washer to this valve. Turn the hot water valve back on. Check for leaks. Run a wash cycle with an empty load.

My daughters maytag has water leaking from the bottom.

Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked?
Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker.
