Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
It could be a filter. The first thing to check is the filter at the front. Remove the panel at the front of the machine, nearest the floor. You will find a little drawer or door. Open this and remove whatever is inside (quite possibly coins!). This might solve the problem, although I think it's more likely to be an inlet problem...
So the next thing to check is the supply hose. Is it properly attached to the machine? Is it properly attached to the tap at the other end? Can you identify a leak when the machine is filling?
You could also check the supply tap. Make sure it turns fully on and off. If it doesn't turn on or off properly you might need to call a plumber.
If the problem isn't a supply problem, it could be a drainage problem. If you can identify where and when the leak occurs you will be in a position to begin to fix it.
Another possibility is that the machine could have been damaged, e.g. by forgetting to take sharp things out of your pockets before washing. However, from your (albeit brief) description, I suspect the problem is a water supply problem and probably not too difficult to fix once you identify it.
