Yes Applianceman is correct, You have a leaking tub seal.
(and the sight he attached is pretty concise and accurate)

I reccomend you replace both the tub seal and tub bearing kits when doing this repair(as the service sight implies).

You may want to consider the roller bearing in the brake package, for more years of service, on occasion(not always) the leaking seal allows water to wash the lubricant out of the bearing and it makes a loud growling noise.(eventually)

Also remember to spin the tub for 5 minutes as the last step of the repair, before you water test the tub seal.

Good luck and have fun
