Question about Washing Machines
It is possible that the leak is from the inlet to the washer, so first of all check the inlet hose connecctor to see if there is leak due to bad connection, remove and check the filter for dirt or clogging.If not the leak can be from the washer drum , due to an overflow or a failure of the gasket., or a failure of the drain hose, drain clips , drain pump/valve.
SO the first thing is to fill and observe the leak from below so that you get a first hand observation of the leak area.
If inlet or drain hose remove clean and reset.

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 on the upper side of the drum. If it is on upper side that means the drum is cracked and it is a costly affair. 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. Please post back in case of any issues. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.
