I have an 18 month old Cabrio that is leaking underneath and the repair man told us that it needs a new water pump because of coins that have been sucked up.
I consider the machine a lemon, as well. It is impossible to find all coins and I have never had this problem in my 15 and 25 year old machines.
Good luck. Mine did the same and they sent their technicians out to fix the problem. A&E comes out and replaces the tub ring. They told me the washer is now made with the tub ring in place. When he opened the washer up I noticed I now have rust inside my washer. I have spent a month trying to get Whirlpool to replace my washer but they will only replace parts. A&E came out to replace the tub ring and now my door creaks and my washer does not go back together correctly. Hopefully you can justreturn the washer to where you got it. Read other reviews on line. It sounds like this washer is a lemon. Sorry!

Check your drain. It might be slow and overflowing. Fill the washer and unplug it overnight and see if you get any water on the floor. Take the back off and do a load . Look for leaks. I have a manual and repair photos HERE
Hello there: If the washer leaks all the time, check these:Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold
water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking,
tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between
the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the
outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks,
you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while
the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it.
The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the
center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a
qualified appliance repair technician. Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the
leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black
rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that
spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs
can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to
replace the entire outer tub-
First check the hoses to the machine. If they leak the water follows the hoses and drips on floor. Also check the hose connection at the washer. They will leak inside. Next it may well be a water pump going out or the plastic hose that is under pressure when operating. The pump is in the middle of machine underneth - Sorry - Good luck
probably rubber hose from tub to pump broke, access from back or bottom, (cabrios are open bottom) pump in rear. there is a recent bulletin about tub ring not channeling water from dispenser completely into tub
If there is water leaking from under the washer, then you have a water leak from one of your water hoses. Check the back of the washer, where the water comes into the washer, to see if its leaking water or the hose is cracked. If its leaking water from the intake hose, then unscrew the hose and check the rubber washer, to see if it needs reolaced. Sometimes those rubber washers get cracked or broken. If that doesn't help, unplug your washer from the power cord and unscrew your intake water hoses and flip the washer gently on it's side and check the water hoses under the washer for leaks or cracks. Replace the hoses if cracked. Your local hardware store should have replacement hoses. This should solve your problem, but if not, then you need to call a washer repair person to look at it. I hope this helps.:)
