Does anyone know why my washing machine would be leaking water out the bottom of it? Have had it 5.5 years and I checked the connections and they aren't leaking but not sure where to look next. Not really in an easy to get to or work on spot so needing some pointers. Thanks

Could it be the drain line is clogged, and it's overflowing? this happened with mine, and it was a pain to find the problem out, cause it was draining just slowly!
If not i'm sure there is some seal on the bottom that could be brittle...

I had that issue and it was actually overfilling. The tube that senses water level was plugged up. Cleaned it out and its worked great. Found a YouTube video that walked me through the process.

Does it leak when the tub is filling or just when it drains during the spin cycle?

Hoses run to a water pump on the bottom. My guess it is either the hose connection or water pump has a leak. Most are cheap plastic water pumps.

Ours has a little drain line and filter in a compartment on front at the bottom. When it gets clogged we see a little water on the floor. Not sure if yours has the same thing, if so, Id start there.

Oh and Im no guru. Lmao

It's not a front load.

And wife noticed it when it was done but not when it happened. Not a large amount of water though. Going to check into some of the things y'all have said.

Update:

The machine leaks when it is draining. Tried taking stuff apart and checking the drain hose and it all seemed fine. I'm guessing it's the drain pump that's leaking.
