1. Washer Leaking From the Bottom
A damaged water pump may be responsible for your washer leak if water is pooling from the bottom of the appliance. The water pump circulates water throughout the wash cycle and drains water out of the tub when the cycle is complete. Some machines have one pump that circulates water and another for draining, while others use the same pipe for both functions.
Other possible causes for a washer that leaks from the bottom are a faulty washer tub seal or a cracked or loose drain pipe. Your washing machine has two tubs. One is perforated and mobile so that water can come in and out during the cycle, while the other tub supports the inner tub and holds water during the wash cycle. If the outer tub is faulty, water may leak out of the machine. The drain pipe is located near the water pump and pushes dirty water out of the washtub. If this pipe becomes damaged, it can cause water to form a puddle around your machine.
