This problem will be either a leaking pump, leaking pump boot, or leaking tumbler gasket. Pray to the buck-toothed Buddha that it's one of the first two things.

I going to try to get him to come back, but is there a way for me to figure out what the problem is before he comes? Since it does not seem to leak when its pumping, why would the pump or pump boot leak when it is spinning fast.

My washer does not leak when the water is filling up or draining. However when it goes into the fast spin after it drains, water starts to leak out the back.
Does it make abnormal noise when it spins?
If so, the water could leak out from the drum bearing seal.
If no, there could be a hole on the upper half of the "plastic" outer tub. There was a previous case from this forum that a hole was cut by sharp metal object (screws left in the pockect of his workcloth) getting in between the stainless steel inner tub and the plastic outer tub. Any metal objects , like nails and coins, could cut hole in plastic tub easily.
Follow the "visual" inspection as suggested by our Grand Master.
