Is the drain pump running constantly? Have you removed the toe kick on the bottom? The machine will need to be removed to dry the water up. Once the water is dried up you will need to run it and determine where the leak is coming from and repair it before you run it. It's the only way to figure out whats leaking on the machine.

Yes, the water is inside the sealed base pan. The machine will need to be removed to access it. I work on the honor system here at Just Answers.
