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)

If the plastic piece you are refering to is the pump, yes it is replaceable. The pump is on the front of the motor on the under side of the machine. It is located front and center and has a history of wearing the case from the inside out. The part is available at www.sears.com under the parts direct tab. You will need your model number to find your machine and then the replacement pump. The model number is three digits a decimal and the remanider of the number, aka. 110.5555555. The model mumber is usually under the lid, on a top loader. Instructions are not included with the pump, so if needed here they are./// This will remove the case.///
Disconnect the power cord. There is either two screws, one at each front corner, holding the control panel in place or two hidden clips. 1. If you see the two screws remove them. If no screws are visible you have a clip at each front corner of the control panel. The best tool to use to unhook these clips is a putty knife. Push the putty knife between the machine top and the control panel at either outer corner. You will feel a spring tension. Push firmly, but not to forcefully toward the back. When the spring releases the corner will lift easily. Repeat at the other corner. 2. Now, if there was two screws holding the panel, remove the two screws at the top on the back of the control panel. If just clips, simply and carefully roll the control panel over the back. 3. Unplug the wire that connects the control panel to the top. Stop here and take note as to how the case connects to the back panel. There is an aligner there that will be your hardest part to deal with later. This will help when reassembling. 4. OK, Put a slotted screw driver into the clips at the back corners on the top and release them, once again take note to their positioning. The outer case hooks under the front of the frame and the sides have a slot that goes over a pin near the back of the frame side. (Front under, sides on top of frame)Tilt the case up on back and pull forward and remove the case. ///There are two clips holding pump to the motor. Remove the clips and pull the pump forward. There may be some residule water in the hoses, be prepared, disconnect the hoses and the pump is out. Reverse the procedure to install the new pump and you're in the laundry business again. Good luck. Need help? I'm here. Just post a response and I'll get an email from Fixya.

Sounds like the main outer tub and bearing assembly is bad. Water has(is) leaking through the main center seal, through the bearings(noise your hearing is these bearings) The tub and bearings with seal and center shaft come as a assembly, not a inexpensive repair. Also the water is getting on a little electronic board called the roto position sensor which can fail, found as part of the motor assembly on the bottom. Causes corrosion on the connection to the wiring. Your main problem is the outer tub assembly........ Good luck.......(I would also suggest you unplug the drain motor(some have a recirculation pump also) to make sure while spinning empty to run only the main motor that this is for sure the noise and water leak if this is your first repair)
