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.

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"
