My washer is only 3 years old and has just started leaking/flowing

Resolved Question:

My washer is only 3 years old and has just started leaking/flowing from the rear right side, as you face the washer. It appears that as it is filling the water is going onto the floor and has flooded my utility room twice.
Believe it did it the first time because i thought i had too much in the tub.
Have a had heavier than this and it did not leak.
Thank you,
Julie Monahan
