You will need to determine where the leak is coming from, you will need to remove the front panel to investigate, using a flat blade insert between the joint on the top and front panel approx 4" in from each side to release the clips, the top cover will now lift and hinge at the back. Remove two front panel screws, which are now accessible and remove the front panel by lifting off the bottom clips.
You should now be able to see where the leak is coming from and repair as necessary.If you put the top down you can run the machine without the front panel.
The sqeeking could be a wet drive belt.

When filling machine it leaks water


Are you talking about a washing machine? If so, you can remove the front panel of the washer by placing a scraper blade under the top panel to push in the metal clip that holds it on. Then look to see where it's leaking. Is it leaking from a hose (easy fix) or the bottom (hard to fix). The bottom has a gasket that can fail and requires removing the tub. Some u tube videos show how.

Water coming out of the bottom of the machine


Sometimes, what may seem like a washing machine leaking from bottom locations is actually one that leaks slowly from other spots. Slow leaks can accumulate beneath your washing machine making it seem like you have a bottom leak. For more help identifying the exact point of the leak, see Washing machine leaking.

Bottom leaks may be better identified using a newspaper. Just dry the floor and lay the newspaper beneath the washing machine before you test for leaks. Darkened sections map out your water leak. This method is not always foolproof, however. The best diagnosis will come from a qualified service professional inspecting your machine.

If your washing machine is leaking from bottom in the rear, you may need a replacement pump and professional installation. The leak could also be caused by a faulty air dome seal or a hole in the tub. For more troubleshooting steps to tackle that leak, see Washing machine leaking from bottom. I hope that helps!

Leaking on drainiing


If it's just leaking when draining, it's probably the water pump going bad, or a loose hose connection, or a ruptured hose. All this stuff can be viewed by removing the back of the wahser. If you aren't experienced with fixing machines, you probably need a service call.
