Whirpool Duet Frontloader Washer is appproximately 5 yrs old. Door seal needs to be replaced but not the cause for this leak. We are finding puddled water underneath washer. We removed the front panel and watched the entire cycle to see when this was occurring. After the final drain (1 min mark) when the final spin begins, water starts flying! During wash there is a small drip on a fairly large piece that seems to be incasing the drum (counterweight??). During final spin, it's hard to tell where it's coming from because it's splattering everywhere. It leaks enough to fill the bottom pan of washer and it leaks onto the floor. Any ideas where its coming from and if it's worth to fix it?

It might be the seal/gasket between the two parts (#10) or it could be leaking from the rear seal (#8)
