leaks could be from anywhere. remove the top and back cover, put on a cycle and try to trace where leak is. sorry if this is not very helpful. water in filter should not smell. this may be due to using liquid detergent which causes a smell like drains if used over a period. put on a boil wash and revert to using powder

are you sure it only happens in the spin cycle? and is the leak comming from the bottom front of the washer? most front laoders will leak due to a tear in the belows. that is the rubber boot that seals the washer tub to the front panel. if there was a hole or a tear in the bellows it should have a leak inthe wash cycle also. but there are also other possibilitys too.but its strange to only leak in a spin cycle due to the washer is extracting the water and not adding it. so check and see if it leaks in the wash cycle to and get back to me and we can go from there. looking through my training manual i dont see what could cause a leak in just the spin cycle

It's caused by blockages the holes in the water divertor (or whatever it's called) in the roof of the soap dispenser. Not enough water flows through during the cycle to cause the siphoning action to happen which then flushes the softener through. I've noticed these holes regularly get blocked with mildew (black staining) since water lays on the plastic providing an ideal environment for mildew . A quick solution is to clear the holes using an old toothbrush or similar. Longer term is to carefully remove the water diverter panel by pulling down at the back and also sliding a thin metal blade (eg old knife) between sides of the panel to unclip it as you pull down. Rather fiddly and danger of splitting the plastic. However if you succeed you can then clean all the mildew away and replace. However it will return unless you manage to keep the soap dispenser dry - perhaps by leaving drawer open. I suspect this is a design problem since it never happened with an old Hotpoint machine I had.

The part that you removed, was the pump filter, the pump is located behind the filter, possibly, the pump itself is leaking, or the filter cover is not fastened in tight enough, pr the filter seal is defective, if after tightening, it still leaks, suggest you replace the pump.
Please rate my solution.
