Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
While I do agree with eagle338 that water could be leaking from the fill hoses and the pump area, the rest of the instructions apply more for a top load Maytag washer, instead of the front load Whirlpool washer you reported.
Most likely you will have a hole in the front boot area (grey rubber seal around where the door seats). If you find such a leak, send me a note back and I'll write you up a how to to change it out.
The second most common source of leaks come from holes in the tub. This is the white outer part that holds most of the water in the machine. You will easily be able to see it when you remove the panel as listed above in the clarification instructions.
On rarer occasions, you can have something stuck in the fill tube that goes from the dispenser to the tub. Somehow small items become lodged in there. There will be a water inlet about the 10 o'clock position of your boot (grey rubber seal). Probe gently in there with your finger to see if a sock or similiar item got spun into this area.

The leaks in a washing machine could be coming from many different places in the washer.
The first place you need to check is behind the washer, check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.
The next thing to do is to remove the front panel, set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on to start filling.
Use a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is filling. Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.
If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag top load washing machine water leaks.
Another place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on the holding tank. When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the water leaks down the center of the transmission.
When the stem & seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110
