First, make sure that the washing machine is not too close to the wall behind it. This could crimp the drain hose & force water out at the connection behind the machine. This could also crack/split the washer machine's port (to which the drain hose attaches). Second, check the hose clamp for a secure hold at the washer machine's port, & check the drain hose for leaks & for insertion in the drain tube at the wall.

It is leaking from the bottom during the wash cycle. What is going on?

If you mean its leaking anytime you have water in the drum,the first thing to check is the drain hose connection at the back of the washer,You'll want to do this with the washer pulled out,(don't let the drain hose drop below the water level or you'll have a mess)If its not leaking there you should be able to look under the washer & see which connection it is(usually the inlet to the pump) Might be as simple as tightening the hose clamps.Hope this helps

Most leaks on this model washer come form a worn or damaged drain pump, or drain hoses. You will need to remove the exterior case to access the washer interior to sufficiently inspect the washer components to be sure, however. The following link explains:

If the drain pump IS the problem, there is a follow-on link included that explains how to replace it.

How do you attach the drain hose to the wf448aaw

The Drain hose comes attached to the drain motor inside the washer and exits the back of the washer. It is gray in color. You need to place the drain hose into the main drain in the wall. It does not need to be attached. Usually there is a Black ruber section of hose that is in the shape of a "j". Just b sure that it is secure and doest pop back out.

Leaking from behind?

If the leak is coming from the back of the washer, the problem may be attributed to either a leaking water inlet valve, or the associated internal hoses that run from the valve to the dispenser. The following link explains how to access the inside of the washer and/or replace the valve (if required):

If the leak is coming from under the front of the washer, the problem may be the drain pump. These pumps can develop cracks and start leaking. they are non-serviceable and will require replacing is defective. The following link explains how: Inspect all internal hoses and hose connections as well. There are two drain hoses on the water pump, and several small hoses near the water inlet valve. These hoses can develop leaks over time. If the leak appears to be coming from the bottom of the wash tub, you may have a leaking tub seal, or cracked wash tub (worst case scenario). You will see tell-tale signs of water marks on the gearcase (transmission) if this were the case. On the lower right hand side of the wash tub is an air dome with a small rubber air hoses attached. Make sure this hose is still attached and has no leaks. The air hose can slip off the nipple it is attached to and water will begin to pour out of the washer when it starts to fill. This will be an "attention-getting" leak as water will gush everywhere. Double check the air hose just in case. If parts are required, you can purchase from any of the following websites:

Leaking wash machine

Depending on where exactly the leak is coming from, it could be a drain hose, drain pump, or tub seal. If this is a top-loader, here's how you can tell:

1. If the leak is coming from the BACK area under the washer, this can be caused by a leaking fill hose, dispenser hose, drain hose, or fill valve.
2. If the leak is coming from UNDER the center area of the washer, this could be your tub seal, a crack in the tub, or an air dome hose leak. NOTE: If the air dome hose is leaking, the washer will fill continuously and not turn off.
3. If the leak appears to be coming from the FRONT under the washer, this could be your drain pump, or drain hoses.

Posting a model number, could assist with determining how your washer is configured. I suspect you may have a drain pump leaking as this is the most common cause, but I want to be sure.
