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.

NOTE: Kenmore washers are manufactured by Whirlpool, so these instructions do apply.

I have front loader MFW9700 Maytag washer. Water


Check the door seal for tears and the drain boot from tub to drain boot for anything that might have put a hole in like a piece of metal from an under wire bra which front loads will spin so fast that the wires come out of the bras.

Leak. My wife noticed water leaking out bottom of washer


Try cleaning the drain plug. I did this in about 5 minutes and was amazed at how much debris was clogging up the drain. Mine was accessible by removing two screws at the bottom of washer and removing panel. Drain plug was right there and easy to unscrew. Be sure to have a cookie sheet or other pan to catch the water that will flow out. Once that drain is clear, thumping should stop because water can flow down the drain easily.

Water leak at front of washer


You should have a drain at the bottom of the rubber boot inside the washer. There is a possibility the drain hose clamp came loose or the boot has a hole in it. If you take the front of the washer cabinet off, you should be able to see where the water is coming from. Take the two screws out of either side of the door opening, pull on both sides of the front panel at the same time, tilt downward, and the panel should come off.
