The Samsung wf448aapxaa washing machine is leaking water from the bottom of the unit. It's about 2-4 cups in total and is on the left side when facing the machine as it drains into that side of the pedistal and onto the floor.

Looking at the top/rear of the washer---you'll see two silver (about 12 mm ) screws---remove those using a phillips screwdriver.

Standing at the front of the washer---grasp the TOP COVER with both hands and firmly slide the TOP COVER rearward about 1-2 inches and lift off/remove the cover.

Start a short wash cycle (select the SILVER CARE option)

Using a bright flashlight---examine the internals of the washer during the cycle.

There are two possibles that come to mind...

1) Leaking hose that leads to the SILVER CARE MODULE (split/ruptured hose)

2) A puncture/hole in either the DRAIN HOSE or the soft/black BELLOWS HOSE next to the DRAIN MOTOR/PUMP ASSY---usually caused by a bra-wire or nail.

The back access panel can also be removed (4 screws) for a better view of the bottom of the washer and DRAIN MOTOR area.
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
