Question about Washing Machines
Look at the connections between the drain hose and the washer tub. The leak could be at the tub, the drain pump or the hose between them. You will need to open the access hatch and look inside the washing machine. The most common issue is an O-ring failing between the tub and the drive shaft on top-loading machines. For front-loaders, there are similar issues on the discharge plumbing connections.
Please add a model number if you need a parts list or diagram for where to look for the leaks. I hope this helps.

Which hose are we talking about? If you're talking about the small rubber hose at the top center of the door seal, HOW is it leaking? Is there a hole in the hose? Is the door seal itself damaged? Let me know a little more so I can give you the proper advice.

The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.
You have now replaced the washer pump.
If you have any questions, let me know

The rubber seal is known as a bellow. If the bellow is torn, more than likely it IS the cause of your leak. Your only course of action is the replace it. Searspartsdirect.com carries replacements. Just type in your model (as you provided) and look under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading for item number 1 (part #8182119). It is not a cheap part, but it will cost you much more to have an appliance repair company install it for you. This is not a difficult repair, and you can accomplish this on your own if you follow these steps:
Some additional parts that normally do not need replaced, but you may consider just in case are the front and back clamps that hold the bellow in place. They are listed under the same heading as items 6 and 14. They don't cost that much and may consider them just in case you need them. In particular, the front clamp, can break or the spring becomes stretched. Inspect these items just to be sure.
I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.
PS You may also try repairclinic.com for comparative pricing. They also carry the same parts (sometimes for less).

Open your wall faucet to full pressure to stop the drip. If this does not work simply change the inlet valve of the machine which is at the top, where the water enters the machine. You can do it yourself. And rate me plz if helped.

It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a dish washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occurs. Removing and Cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there is gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.
