When the leak occurs, is it only when the tub is filling with water, or is it during the whole cycle ?

It may be as simple as a damaged water flume or hose, or tub leaning too far forward and water is missing the tub.

You may want to remove the front panel and observe the location and time of the leak and respond with what you observe, for a more accurate assistance.

** If you remove the front panel, be careful not to reach into the cabinet, there are several electrical and mechanical moving parts and you could get hurt.**

Do you mean the water is leaking from the bottom center of the tub assembly ?

And if thats the case, it must also be leaking during the whole cycle , not just when the water is comming into the tub?

Or does it leak when the water is coming into the tub only?

Please update us so we can have a better diagnosis for you.

Sounds like the tub seal is leaking. If it is leaking right where the transmission enters the tub the tub seal is leaking.

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)

Part number: AP4372971

Part number: AP4372971

Part number: AP4390013

Part number: AP4390013

Part number: AP4027027

Part number: AP4027027

Part number: AP3856708

Part number: AP3856708


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
