My washer, fills and agitates properly. However, when it begins to drain the water leaks out of the bottom. It's not a fast leak, but the majority of the water drains on the floor and not down the proper drain.

This is caused by the " the flood" circuit at the bottom of the dishwasher that detects some water leak. Once this circuit detects any water on the bottom of the washer, it immediately switches the pump out circuit on. It consists of a polystyrene float coupled to a micro switch. You need to dry the bottom and then check for leaks (hose or hose clamp).
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps
is the drain hose connected to a drain standpipe or laying in a utility tub , or a floor drain check owners manual for proper drain hose height and requirements if drain hose is lower than the height of washer it can auto siphon out of drain hose ,,,,, is the drain hose sitting in stand pipe freely or is it connected to stand pipe with no air gap
Water siphoning out the drain line If the water is
continues to fill and water is draining while it is filling or
agitating, Check the height of the stand pipe. It should be about 36"
above the floor. If the height is correct it may need to have an
anti-siphoning valve installed into the drain line. The washer fills and drains at the same time only on the rinse cycle. Shut the machine off
with timer during this period and raise the drain hose. If the water
continues to drain, you will need to install an anti-siphon kit.
