The most common reason for a leak is the pump that circulates and disposes of water.
The seals generally fail and when they start to go, they may not leak continuously.
Just remove the back panel and peer into the guts with a flashlight.
The pump is normally a semitransparent whitish plastic and will have 2, sometimes 3 hoses connected.
It is driven by belt too so it shouldn't be too hard to find.
Check around the pump for signs of deposits from detergent and possibly calcium that forms at a slow leak.
Replacing the pump is not difficult for the average home handyman.
Check your phone directory for a company called Johnstone Supply.
If you have one not too far away, it is worth ~ $20 US to buy one from them.
They are generally a supplier to tradespeople but I have never been turned away or charged other than the price quoted by phone and they are easy to deal with.
Have your model number handy or (if you can confirm the pump is leaking) go to the Sears site, go to the parts page and enter your model number. Their site is great for line-drawing illustrations that use reference numbers to find the part you need.
You could even do this first if you are unsure what the pump looks like; it will be identified in the parts list.
You can also check their price but it is often double that of Johnstone's.
