Hello, Your problem is going to be with your lid switch, this is located normally either in the control panel or about half way down on the right side under the lid. This is a safety feature to stop you opening the lid while the machine is in a high spin. Once you have located the switch trace the wires back to the wire harness in the control panel. Disconnect the lid switch from the wire harness and with an ohms meter check for condinuity on pin 1 & 3 (the 2 outside pins not the middle this is a ground) You should find you have no condinuity and should replace this switch. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

First check the hoses to the machine. If they leak the water follows the hoses and drips on floor. Also check the hose connection at the washer. They will leak inside. Next it may well be a water pump going out or the plastic hose that is under pressure when operating. The pump is in the middle of machine underneth - Sorry - Good luck

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, directdrive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most ofthe water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
Seethe Sears site sub-components for the agitator, basket and tub. It'spossible that one of the gaskets or seals has worn over time.
I'd also pull off the cabinet and check the hoses leading to and from the pump. It's also possible that the pump is leaking.
See the following for how to remove the cabinet.
