Washing Machine Leaking

I noticed the OEM Whirlpool Washing Machine in our 2016 Dutchstar has started accumulating water in the drip pan undeneath it. Is there a fix for this or does the washing machine need to be replaced?

If replaced, what brand/model is the consensus current recommended replacement?

Advice would be appreciated.

Check your hoses. When we had this problem with our 2017, we used a phone to video the connections and saw the cold water hose was leaking at the fitting. We replaced both hoses and all is well.

The dryer vent house is blocking the ability to see down to the washing machine connections. Looks like I will have to pull the dryer out in order to see/check the water connections?

Can you fit a phone, on video, in your hand into where you can film the connections? That's what we were able to do to learn the fitting on the cold at the wall was leaking where the hose met the fitting.

I have a different brand of washer which sprang a leak from a crack that developed in the rubber door boot between the drum and the outer cabinet. Never heard of this before, but it can happen.
