Whirlpool washer leak

I have a Whirlpool Super Capacity Plus washer. It leaks. Until recently, it leaked during use. Now it may be leaking all the time. I haven't found the model number. I have had it upside down and the parts are not very accessible, if that helps. I don't see any belts.

I'm wondering if this is likely an easy fix or if I should just bag it.

The pump is what leaks the most, it's a direct drive on the front of the motor. If you check the bottom of the pump on the end near the motor you find evidence of leakage. You maybe able to replace by leaning the unit against the wall and this will cause the motor,pump and transmission to move back so you can remove the two clips and two hoses and replace the pump. Normally the cabinet is removed to do this repair. It takes about 4 minutes if you know how.
