It also is leaking water (just started today along with the light and beeps) at the base.

Answer:

That is a wash motor failure, more than likely the seal went bad on the wash motor and it is seized up and will need to be replaced. That is fairly common on that model. They run about 150 dollars for the motor and if you have the complete model off the tag on the unit I can get you the correct part. This is not a super easy DIY project as the whole unit needs to come out to change it out just so you are aware.
