well it could be several issues, if the water seems that it came from the rear of the washer and from the sounds of it , it was a lot of water, then either the drain hose has a hole in it, the drain hose came out of the drain pipe, or its not the washer at all but your drain is stopped up and water is backing up and spilling onto the floor. The only way to find out what is going on for sure is to fill the machine with water and put it spin and drain and see where the water is coming from, if it's a top load washer, it also could be overfilling and water is coming over the top of the tub. I can help you further once you let me know which is going on, so try to figure that part out and let me know what you find, in the meantime
