Your washer has a transmission and this is what is probably leaking. You might simply need a new seal or the a new transmission. You need a good handyman or contact a repairman.

Grease spot found on the floor from the right side


There is a bearing seal that does tend to leak. Feel free to ask any other questions. I do recommend copy and pasting this link in your internet address bar under a new tab for more great repair info:

Maytag washing machine gets out of balance


Maytag uses an auto balancing mechanism, based on the rear legs. These legs should move freely. Lay the machine on its side, and try to move the rear legs. If they won't move and appear rusty, then spray penetrating oil on both legs and move them until they move freely.

Maytag floods when it drains


If the flooding is from hose and joint in the drain system, or from the drain pump, then it is the machine.

If instead, as it looks, it is a return from the drain pipes on the wall, then the problem concerns your house drain line, in that case it is a plumber job.

Ensure that the leak is not from inside the machine, if it is not anything from the machine, then call the plumber.

Washer leaking water on floor


Need to check drain pump and its hose connections. If its not from the drum seal then that's usually where the leaks occur.

Water out of washing machine.


Sounds like the machine is not at fault. The problem is probably the pipework that takes the water out of the building, it could be made up with lime & wash powder residue. Try running some water into the wall outlet pipe, & see if it overflows, if it does you need to dismantle & clean it
