My washer works except there is water coming out of the bottom somewhere.  Is there a drain or filter that should be cleaned?  I couldn't find anything in the manual.

On the front of your washer under the door there is a panel. On the bottom of that panel there are a few screws that need to be removed. Once removed the panel can be slid down and removed. Behind that panel there is the drain catch. With this cover removed you can also inspect the inside lower portion of the washer to see where the leak is coming from.

You may want to check the rubber door seal. Remove the retainer ring, look on the back side of the seal to see if there is any hole. It is a common problem.

put a bunch of towels down or a pan for any water left behind when you remove the cover.
It simply unscrews.
