Where is my Kenmore Elite Calypso washer model 11022086100 leaking under the unit?

I have a Kenmore Elite washer that leaks from under the unit. I want to know if I can fix the leak myself or if it needs a professional. The spin basket seems like it is not completely secure.

A leak on this washer can be difficult to locate because the cabinet does not remove so you can easily check for a leak when the washer is running.

The first image below shows how to raise the top of the washer and with the top raised you can visually check for the origins of the leak when the washer is running. The leak may be from the bleach dispenser hose on the side of the tub or it can be from splash over from the recirculation nozzle. Lint can build up in the nozzle and cause water to spray over the tub ring and leak on the floor.

The 2nd image shows how you can remove the spin basket. You won't have to go that far but if you think the spin basket is loose then the spanner nut may need to be tightened. You can review the instructions below and decide if this is a repair you'd be comfortable and confident in doing.

I hope this information is helpful resolving your problem but if you have any additional questions then submit another question with additional details for further assistance.
