Washer leaks

It could be the pump. Around $150 to have fixed. Or it could be the tub seal.
Is this a top loader or a front loader?

Washer leaks

Check the hoses where they meet the pump. My old pump rotted out at the elbow from retained water due to sludge inside, phosphates , balls of thread , etc. I went to move the unit and could see a leak in the side of the pump where the hose attached.
