The washing machine is leaking all the time?

The possibilities for this problem are mentioned as follows:-- Check the water filling hoses which lets the water inside the washing machine while filling. There are two fill for cold water filling or one for hot water filling.if this hoses are worn out or cracked the washer will both the hoses needs to be checked and replaced. But if the hoses are checked OK then other possibility is the tub seals on the tub.The seal can be seen between the transmission assembly and outer tub assembly of the washing machine. If the tub seal is got loose or worn out it needs to be checked and replaced. But if the tub seals are proper and not worn out then other possibility to check out is the drain pump.Check if the pump is got cracked ,loose or worn case or cracked or worn out it needs replacement but if its loose you can just refit it properly to stop the leaking.But if the pump is not leaking and it looks properly fit then other possibility to check is the outer tub assembly.its made up of plastic and this plastic gets cracked after certain period of time.or if any pointed object/material if remain in the clothes while washing .then due to that pointed object there becomes a hole in the plastic outer tub assembly .This all the possibilities.that has to be checked. This will help.Thanks.

While i'm washing water is getting on my floor, I don't know if it is when spinning or washing what could be the problem?

Help me help you...Dry the floor...Set the load size to small. Let it fill and start the wash cycle. Stop the unit. Look underneath it. Is there water on the floor? If so let me know. If not, start it up again and let it complete the wash cycle. As it begins to drain, look for water on the floor. Let me know.
I am trying to help you eliminate (or isolate) a bad tub seal, centrifigual force out, or a drain pump issue. When the water actually begins to leak is the key element we need to know in order to solve your problem. :) 2CR

Since if did not begin to leak during the DW filling, we can rule out the inlet hose and solenoid valve.

When water leaks from underneath and not from the door, the most common failure is the seal between the DW tub and the wash pump/motor. Replacing that assembly would be the way to repair that problem.

The other possibility is that you have a rusted or broken tub enclosure which is leaking directly through the bottom. Replacing the dishwasher would be your best option then.

Good Luck!

Occasionally it will overfill

The water level switch is your problem.
Open the control panel and remove the plastic hose from the level switch and blow through it.
Soap and dirt clog the bottom end and prevents the switch from stopping. The water continues to flow because of this blockage.
After you reattach the plastic hose , set the washer to spin and turn it on to reset the switch.

Check the two lengths of 1/4" plastic tubing, the long one that runs from the filler at the botton left side of the tub, and the short one that runs from the load switch (water level switch) to the shield assembly (formed plastic cover for the controls). When under pressure, the tubing can come loose from the plastic nipple on either side of the shield, leaking water while the tub is filling. If either length of tubing is detached from the nipple, reattach the tubing and use a 1/4" hose clamp to prevent it from detaching again.

Open up behind, after taking off the wall power plug. Check to see it the hose from underneath the tub is loose, tighten. Or replace hose if damaged.
