I have a small leak that accumulates under the front, left corner of the washing machine after a wash. I assumed it was going to be the water valve so replaced that part, and it's still leaking. I've inspected and felt around the two drain pumps from the back side and see no cracks nor feel wetness. I also don't feel any wetness under or around the drum.

What could the source of the leak be?

Added correct model number

Hi, your model number is pulling up as good, please recheck it.

Click here: Appliance Parts

Then you will see a link that says: How to find a model number.

Just a small leak? What portion of the cycle does it seem to leak most in? Fill, Wash, Drain, Spin?

After running the load, I can feel some moisture down the lower part (as far up as I can reach) of the drum on the front, left side. Appears to be below the bleach addition area. I cannot see any visible cracks in the plastic when looking from the top and side.

I need your correct model number first.

MBWB950YGO does not pull up as good.

No worries, Thanks!

I located a thread with the exact same model and exact same problem as yours:

Check the tub ring as I mentioned in that thread.

Here's the tub ring for your model:
WPW10362224 Ring-Tub


See those slots at the very bottom of that photo? Make sure they are there and not clogged.
