After pulling the appliance out and repairing the laminate floor. It was not apparent that there was any major leak. No puddles of water or moist areas in the washer drain compartment. After reloading with clothes and starting there was a very tiny drip in the trap boot around the back side due to a wire from a bra poking through. After removal of trap and drain pump. Both were replaced. Incidentially another underwire was found in the drum area and over three dollars in change in the trap. Watch for water when removing drain hose and have plenty of towels ready. Channel locks work well on the clamps, and electrical is easily removed from the pump.
