My Kenmore Elite Washer is leaking water from underneath Model#11020952992
I have a kenmore elite washwer model# 20952992 serial# CK1506411 Type 111 and when I do a wash during the spin cycle no matter if it is a "large load or small load" leaks water. Not a ton of water but enough that if I put a towel down in front of the washwer it can absorb one load worth or leaking water.

I had this problem too. It turned out to be lint & hair clogging the bleach dispenser. During the wash cycle, there is a point when water is added to the bleach dispenser and when it's clogged the water will overflow and leak out the bottom of the washer. Open the lid and to the right is where you put the bleach. Pull the cover off and use a screwdriver to pop the bleach dispenser off where the little tabs are. You'll see where the water & bleach then drain out. This is what was clogged on my washer. I cleaned it out with a q-tip and reassembled everything. That fixed my leak.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.
The water leak could be emitting from the drain pump or one of the hoses. It could even be leaking from the tub seal located in the bottom middle of the tub. You will need to remove the washer cabinet from the base in order locate the source of the leak.
I added a YouTube video showing how to access the drain pump. The video will show how to remove the washer cabinet. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.
I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
