@amygloshen have you checked where it leaks from? Water inlet? Tub?

It drains right out of the bottom through the hose

Cause 1

Drain Pump

The drain pump pumps water out the drain hose. If the drain pump is cracked or damaged, or if the bearings are worn out, the drain pump may leak water. The drain pump is not repairable—if the pump is leaking water, replace it.

Cause 2

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit

The tub seal might be torn, causing water to leak from the seal. If the tub seal is leaking water, water may leak through the tub seal and into the tub bearings. This can cause the bearings to fail. For this reason, if the tub seal is leaking water, replace both the tub seal and the tub bearings. Be aware that this is a complicated repair and will require disassembling most of the washer.

Cause 3

Tub Seal

The tub seal might be torn, causing water to leak from the seal. If the tub seal is leaking water, water may leak through the tub seal and into the tub bearings. This can cause the bearings to fail. For this reason, if the tub seal is leaking water, replace both the tub seal and the tub bearings. Be aware that this is a complicated repair and will require disassembling most of the washer.

Amy, this is not an easy question! There are several parts that might be broken/leaking. WHEN does it leak? Just as soon as water enters the tub? Is an inlet item leaking, or an outlet? After the pump starts working? During some particular part of the cycle? The first thing to do, might be to gain access to the working parts, possibly through the back panel, and determine exactly where the water is coming from. If you go to <https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=par...> you will find a series of drawings that might help to determine exactly which part is not working properly or at least _where_ the water is coming from, exactly. You say the water is draining out the bottom "through the hose." How is it getting out of the hose? Is that hose split? Is the clamp on the hose tight? We need more information!
