Hi you need to identify where the water is coming from three main places are 1: pump seal 2: a hole in the drain hose 3: Main bowl seal my advice is turn it off at the wall lean it over and have a look underneath and clean floor area. does the base of the main motor look clean if yes its probably not the main bowl seal. So its down to the last two if your models got the plastic removable cover on the front its easy to remove it and watch where the water is leaking from my "guess" is a pump seal you will see it drip/ splash of the pump fan during drain/ spin cycle Be very careful to turn off at wall as there is voltage around these things even when power is off at the machine panel
Hi, If not a hose leak, check for leakage around the water pump. On our
top-load Kenmore, the leak showed up at the front right of the
machine. Water was leaking where the pump slides onto the motor
shaft. Replacement of pump consists of: (1) unplug power cord and
then remove 2 screws at corners of the dial/control panel to tilt it
back, (2) unplug wiring harness, (3) remove two spring clips holding
white metal console to the frame then tilt console forward and remove,
(4)pump was in front of machine with two black hoses attached via hose
clamps - remove the spring clips at top & bottom of pump and remove
the two hose clamps, (5) slide new pump onto shaft and reassemble in
It sounds like you are leaking from the bottom of the unit. If you are leaking at the top then you need to check the water inlet valves, and also the drain pump and all water hoses. This doesnt sound like a seal issue.
try opening the washer door and feel all the way around the inside of the door seal for any rips or perished areas , if this is the cause the water will leak out from the front behind the panel . if you think it is leaking from the back it could be several things such as the pump ,the pump hose , the outer drum , or even the bearing housing if it is whining when spinning fast . if it is new check the guarantee , if it is old think about a new one or even a good secondhand one from a private sale there are some good bargains to be had . good luck .
The cause of the leak may well be a clog in the pump. As clothes spin around inside the washer, many times items left in pockets work their way into the pump when it rinses and spins out. To inspect the pump, remove the bottom panel. You will see a hose attached to the pump. Detach the hose and inspect the inside of the pump. You may need a pair of needlenose pliers or a screwdriver to feel your way around inside the pump for any debris. If the pump is clear, inspect the hoses. Over time, the ends of the hoses become soft and a leak can develop. If the end of the hose is leaking, you can sometimes trim the end and reuse the hose but if there's no play in the hose or if you find the leak elsewhere, a new hose will be needed.

You'll need to open the machine and check for the leaks in the hose connected to the drain pump. Also check if the clamp connecting the drain filter and hose is tight. Also check these things for leaks---
Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace.
Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you'll need to replace it.

More then likely you pump is cracked. Easy and cheap to repair though luckily. The pump is located right at the front of the machine on the front of the motor. In spin all the water is getting sucked out through the pump. It probably got cracked due to something getting sucked into it like a coin or something and breaking the housing. You can get a new pump for around 30 dollars at your local appliance repair shop. Make sure you get some hose clamps too though or you may have water all over your floor when you take the pump off. Just ask at the appliance place and they should have some. You will need two clamps. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and I am glad I could help you out.
The pumps usually have rubber hoses fitted them and they can deteriorate over time, moreso around the clamps that hold them onto the pump. Also, maybe the pump has been slightly opened via a worn seal. Either way, there may be a risk of fire if any water gets onto the electrical connections of the pump or spray onto any other open electrical connection inside the machine. It would certainly be advisable to have it checked with some urgency.
During the final rinse and spin, I would think the pump may not be used during these cycles.
