Trying to pop the top of the washer to inspect the hoses inside the washer.Having trouble getting the top opened. It does not appear that the hoses that fill the machine are leaking but rather from internally and getting the floor very wet.

This issue calls siphoning effect. It happens when the drain hose was somehow lower or not stand vertically. It causes no air pressure column in the drain hose to keep the water out. Check the drain hose and make sure it is high enough. Try to hold the drain hose straight up and see if it is happened before having further inspection.
The water leaking on floor can be a serious issue as this may cause the inside
parts to malfunction or in some cases rusting of the body. To check where
exactly it is leaking; inspect the leak while it is running. After the cycle is
complete quickly turn off the power, lie down the machine on left/right side
and check from where the water is leaking. If it is the hose or drain pump then
check whether hose is connected firmly and is not cut. If it not the hose/pump
inspect if the leak is on the drum corner or anywhere back of the
drum. However, if it is leaking from the circumference then it is due to
transmission seal. To replace the transmission seal you'll need to disassemble
the washer and the drum assembly.

you are having a problem with your washing machine i.e leaking, don't rush out to buy a new one just
yet. Sometimes simple repairs to the machine can fix the leaks saving
you hundreds of dollars and days of shopping for and installing a new
one. Luckily, you don't have to be a master electrician to do repairs.
These steps will walk you through the basics of fixing a washing
at the floor drain to make sure it isn't clogged. Sometimes it's not
even the washing machine, but the drain causing those puddles of water
on the floor. Unclogging the drain can be an easy and quick fix.
the hoses for leaks or wear and tear in certain spots. Filling the
washing machine may help identify any leaks or faulty hoses. If hoses
are worn, replace them with non-burst stainless steel mesh hoses.
the fittings of the existing hoses to the faucet fixtures and on the
back of the washing machine. Sometimes a loose connection is the cause
for the leaks. Tighten couplings and hose clamps if necessary to fix
internal washers inside of the hoses if not replacing the entire hose.
Something as small as a rubber gasket can create a lot of water damage.
Use a screwdriver to pop the worn washer out and replace it. Repeat
replacing washers on the other end of the hose.
internal components by opening the cabinet and starting the fill cycle
to see if anything is leaking internally. Calcium deposits and rust may
be evident around areas that have leaks.
hose clamp pliers to remove any corroded spring clamps and replace them
with new ones. Make sure the hose is still intact underneath the old
clamp. If not, remove the internal hose and take it to an appliance
repair center to find the correct replacement part.
Good luck and thank you and thanks for using fixya.
I just replaced the fill valve on my front load Kenmore Elite HE4T it is actually a very easy fix.
1. Turn off the hot/cold water supply to the washer.
2. Remove the top cover of the washer by removing the three screws located at the top of the back panel.
3. Lift up the rear of the top cover about 1" and pull toward the rear of the washer. The top cover should pop off.
4. Remove the water supply hoses if they are not marked "H" and "C" mark them so that when you reconnect they are not reversed.
5. On the back - left side of the inlet valve is a spring clamp holding the black water supply hose to the inlet valve. Using a pair of pliers loosen and slide the clamp an inch away from the hose end.
6. Using your fingers and a flat tip screwdriver pry the inlet hose off of the inlet valve.
7. Place the new valve near the defective valve and remove the wires attached to the "H" and "C" inlet relays (they are two square blocks with two wire terminals on each). As you remove each wire attach it to the corresponding terminal on the replacement valve. I found it was best to pry off the plastic connectors with a screwdriver from the top while pulling them off.
8. There is one screw holding the valve to the back panel of the washer, remove it and remove the defective valve.
9. Attach the water black water supply hose to the new valve and slide the spring clamp back over the nipple of the inlet valve making sure it is near the end of the hose, but not over the edge.
10. Install the new valve by lining up the single screw hole and reinstalling the screw.
11. Reconnect the "H" and "C" supply hose paying attention that the "H" is connected to the inside and the "C" is connected to the outside inlet.
12. Turn on the water supply and run the washer through a fill cycle checking for leaks at the supply hose connections and the black hose at the outlet of the fill valve.
13. If everything is still dry reinstall the top cover by putting it in place and sliding it forward. Replace the three screws that hold the top panel.
The entire repair should take you less than 30 minutes. If you have enough room between the back of the washer and the wall you really don't even need to move the washer.
it might be coming form the tub itself passing through the rubber seal of your plastic rotator(the big wheel inside the tub)
the other thing is in the junction of the hose the tub.
try to open the back of your washing macjine where you can get an access inside the wheel and the junction connector, from there you will the cause of the leackage. try to put some water while looking at so you can see where the water is coming out
maybe to pump leaking or a hose has come off for the rinse cyc that flushes the fabric softner into the tube if its a smaller amount of water.....try this select a wash cyc let it fill up and wash for a short time then inspect the front of unit for water if no water push cancel/drain and let it drain insp front still no water then I would check for a loose hose or a cut in a hose
Can you describe WHERE the leak may be coming from? If the leak is coming from the front area of the washer, it may be the door bellow (rubber gasket), or the drain pump. You will need to open the door and pull back the folds in the rubber gasket and inspect for cracks or tears in the rubber. To inspect the pump, you need to remove the bottom panel under the door and look for any leaks inside the unit. The drain pump is in the front, directly under the wash tub. Also check all hose connections. If the washer is leaking from the rear area, check the fill hoses and drain hoses for cracks or holes. Make sure all hose connections are tight. The fill valve is another possiblity too. You will need to remove the top panel to view the valve to ensure it is not dripping. Please verify your symptoms and let me know. I hope this helps.
CHECK THE BALANCE SPRING LOCATED (INSIDE LEFT REAR OF MACHINE). IF SPRING IS OFF IT CAN CAUSE THE TUB TO TILT TOWARD THE FRONT AND THE TUB FILL HOOD WILL NOT BE OVER THE TUB DURING FILLING OR THE TUB WILL BE ERATIC DURING THE SPIN WHEN RINSE WATER IS SPAYING IN CAUSE ING THE WATER TO MISS THE TUB AND SPRAY OUTSIDE. THIS IS COMMON IF THE UNIT HAS BEEN MOVED OR PLACED ON IT'S SIDE OR CARRIED AT EXTREME ANGLE.
