Baye, the leak is most likely form either your drain plug or your water pump. In order to locate the source of the water leak will require removing the washer cabinet.

"To remove the washer cabinet:

Disconnect the power cord from the power source.

The console (key#26) will need to be placed in the service position by removing two (2) hidden screws, one (1) screw located at the bottom of the left hand end cap (key#7) and one (1) screw located at the bottom of the right hand end cap (key#10).

In order to access the two (2) screws hidden under the left hand end cap trim (key#8) and under the right hand end cap trim (key#11)the two (2) end cap trim pieces will need to be removed. See image below.

To remove the trim (key#8&11), place you finger behind the trim at the very top and bend it up enough to clear the console and then hinge it towards the front and off.

Remove the hidden screw under each end cap trim. Slide the console forwards about 1/4 inch and the raise it upwards and hinge it over the rear panel.

Disconnect the 3 wire lid switch harness plug located on the top. Pop the two (2) gold colored cabinet clips off.

Place the tip of a flat tipped screw driver down into the first valley and then push the handle end to the rear of the washer to pop off the cabinet clips. See image below.

Open the lid and grab the opening and tilt the top of the washer cabinet forwards just a few degrees and then walk it backwards and off.

You now have access in order to locate the leak." from here

Your post was extremely helpful. I could not figure out how to get that darn cabinet off.

So mine is leaking too. I first determined that water is dripping off the bottom of the transmission. Looking a bit further up, it seem so be leaking from the center of the tub. I'm guessing there is a seal up there in the center of the tub somewhere. I'm still trying to identify the source.

Definitely not coming from any of the hoses, the pump, or the solenoid area.
