A leaking washer can have several causes. In order to be able to accurately determine where the leak may be coming from, you will need to remove the exterior washer case to get a full view of all the interior washer components. The following link explains how to perform this procedure and what to inspect for:

From the symptoms you have described, it sounds like you may have a leaking drain pump. These pumps are not serviceable, and if leaking, they must be replaced. The following link explains how to replace one:

Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com

The first three sites also included helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need. The average price for a pump is about $35.

Water coming out of the bottom of the machine


Sometimes, what may seem like a washing machine leaking from bottom locations is actually one that leaks slowly from other spots. Slow leaks can accumulate beneath your washing machine making it seem like you have a bottom leak. For more help identifying the exact point of the leak, see Washing machine leaking.

Bottom leaks may be better identified using a newspaper. Just dry the floor and lay the newspaper beneath the washing machine before you test for leaks. Darkened sections map out your water leak. This method is not always foolproof, however. The best diagnosis will come from a qualified service professional inspecting your machine.

If your washing machine is leaking from bottom in the rear, you may need a replacement pump and professional installation. The leak could also be caused by a faulty air dome seal or a hole in the tub. For more troubleshooting steps to tackle that leak, see Washing machine leaking from bottom. I hope that helps!

Intermittent water on floor


Check the inlet valve hoses, even if inlet is at the back, the water may drip down and flow on the front part on the machine. There you also have the PUMP, a faulty pump may leak intermittently.

Intermittent water observed under machine


Difficult if not seen. Most common water on the floor senario is a drain pump leaking:or a perrished pipe from friction.or sometimes, water backs up from the house drainage system due to a restriction.
