Ok thanks that unit mainly only leaks water from one place the pump, typically you will find a puddle of water near the middle of the machin. It could also leak from the hose that goes from the pump to the drain hose in the back. These are almost always to the two places it would leak from. The pump seal goes bad or wears through the pump body and will leak right down in front of the machine. Here is a link to the pump and a video to help you replace it.
