I bought a used washer today. Got it home and started a load of clothes. Water started leaking out of the bottom as soon as it filled and started agitating. After messing around with it some, I learned it only leaks on large load. Washing on small or medium has no issues. Hoping it's something easy I can fix myself.

Hi Rachel, Did you buy this used from a private party? Or from a used appliance store? Hopefully the latter as they should have at least a 30 day warranty on it.

If from a private party did they say it leaked?

Here's the parts diagram for your model:

Check all your water and drain hose connections. Start a LARGE LOAD and stay with the machine and get a flashlight to pinpoint the leak.
