This is a direct-drive washer and the part that usually leaks is pump which is directly coupled to the rear spline o the drive motor. The cabinet is removed for access to the machine parts instead of the back panel. You have to replace the pump if it is leaking.

Remove the screws securing the console to the rear of the machine then pull forward and up on the console and lay it back on the hinges.

Disconnect the lid switch harness connector by pressing on the tab, located in the middle, and pulling it up.

The cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the turned-up edge of the clip, located on both sides, and then pry back to release the clip from the slot in the cabinet.

Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening then tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling the cabinet away from the base. This releases the front and back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the front and back of the base. Using the side of your leg and/or body as a support for the front of the cabinet, carefully lift up and set thMy roper machine may have - dcd3e8c.jpgside.

    Replace the pump in reverse of the removal steps. Bring the cabinet to the front of the washer
    then slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the
    of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the
    slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine.

Roper washer leaks when filling

It's in the drain hose somewhere,during the fill the water gets as deep in the drain hose as it does in the washer,during the wash the pump runs in reverse keeping the water level in the hose low,during the drain the hose is filled again.
Prop the washer up in front on a couple bricks or boards,start putting in water until it starts to leak and take a peak under the machine.
