We recently had an item jam the drain pump area. After clearing it out and reattaching the hoses, we checked for leaks. We found a leak, but it appears to be coming from another place. After removing the top cover and watching the washer during the entire cycle, It appears the hose on the top of the barrel leaks during the high spin cycle. It leaves the bottom of the washer damp, but it dries in an hour or so I am guessing this has been going on a a bit, as it would be hard to detect without opening the washer up.
Here is the hose in question:

Does anyone know if this is a common location for a leak? I can't pinpoint exactly where the leak is coming from, but I am pretty sure it is something with this hose. Is the replacement of this part relatively straightforward and can be done by a non-professional?
thank you in advance.
