pantherpride, it is possible that you have an improperly installed drain hose. Check your drain hose installation to make sure that it is properly installed. Check to see if your drain hose is stuck way down the standpipe. If the standpipe opening is taped of, it can cause water to be siphoned out of the washer during the cycle.If water is leaking out of the bottom of the washer, unplug the washer and remove the bottom front panel. Once the panel is removed, check the tub, door boot seal, the hose between the tub and the drain pump, the drain pump and the drain hose. If you need to , you can get the service manual from here and there are more images on F02 Error Code HE3 Elite Washer Hope this helps, good luck.

I was confused as it was not leaking before I cleared out all the debre from hte trap and I didn't mess with any of the hoses. I will walk through your steps above and let you know. Thank you again!
