Question about Washing Machines
Hiya bcd1...what model number? see below info.. is yours one of these?
The front loading washing machines have been known to leak water onto the electrical connections to the machine's thermal sensor, which could cause an electrical short and ignite a circuit board, causing a fire.
The recall covers 250,000 Maytag washers and 20,000 Samsung front loaders.
Maytag machines affected have model numbers beginning with MAH9700 or MAH8700. The Samsung washers have model numbers beginning WF306BHW and WF316, although not all serial numbers are subject to the recall.
learn more detailed information about the recall by visiting Whirlpool...or Samsung's at www.samsung.com/washerrecall.
Hope you find useful!

try taking the drawer out and clean it thoroughly, including the underside of the drawer, then clean the inside of the machine where the drawer fits into. Sometimes a build up of dertergent can casue this problem

First check not a likely cause: Does your door stay centrally aligned when closed? If it doesn't center it could cause a leak. The glass bowl on the inside must be centered in the gasket. It will have to be adjusted or bent to center.
Second check: If it is a leak that happens when it is running then you will need to reset your gasket if there is a wrinkle in it or a new gasket. To check for a wrinkle put 1 layer of paper towels around the glass bowl insert, close the door and turn it on. Let it run for a bit then check the paper towel. You should be able to find the place leaking by the wet spot on the towel. If it only leaks a little when you open the door then you have a choice, keep a rag handy and mop it up (I'm talking about a couple of tablespoons at the most) or follow the instructions above. Even with a new gasket front loaders often leak a few drops that mop up nicely with the next load of clothes.
Warning: the gaskets don't just pop in they take some work. One side is attached to stationary cabinet and the other to the drum which moves a bunch. This will take a parts breakdown at a minimum. If you see any gasket sealant listed make sure and get some.

I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)

Do you mean the door seal has come loose.
Disconnect the machine from the power. Open top hatch by removing two screws in the back and sliding top lid back and up to remove.
Check down from the top of the machine and feel around the door seal. Make sure there are no holes or tears in the seal. Try and refit seal. there is a metal ring around the drum and also around the front panel where the door seal joins. Make sure the are tight and fit in properly.
Let me know if I didnt understand the problem.
