Washer is Leaking Water

A washer can leak from a number of places.  Some common places are the tub seal and the water pump.  Most common out of those two is the water pump.  To check this, all you need to do is find the water pump on your machine.  On Kenmore and Whirlpool style washers the pump is attached directly to the drive motor.  The best way to see if the pump is leaking is to either remove the front panel or the whole cabinet depending on which style you have.  Once you have a clear view of the pump, turn on the water and pinpoint where the leak is coming from.  Once you have identified the leak that will tell you what you need to do to repair the problem.  Maybe your pump is leaking or you have a hose that's loose.  You will never know until you get the washer apart and look.
