does it not leak until it starts to spin out?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Correct, only when it starts the rinse/spin -- when it starts to drain water out to do the spinning.

i believe you will find this to be your drain ,, if it was the washer it would leak before then ,, fill the washer on full load and set it to spin and drain and watch the drain pipe behind the water on the wall and you will see water backing up the drain pipe and use some liquid plumber and pour into the drain pipe, let set for a while and fill the washer with hot water and spin it out and if this does not work then you will need a plumber

Larry ... my wife says that it only leaks when there are no clothes in the machine. She took the clothes OUT of the last load (when we noticed the leak) and continued the cycle -- and there were no leaks. Does that change your answer at all?
