Mailbag: Mystery Leak from a Direct-Drive Washer

I have a kitchenaid washer model kaws700g. It made a small puddle under it. I am not sure exactly when it developed. I checked all the connections and they were dry. So i flipped back the top and removed the front and side covers. After jumping the lid switch i ran 2 loads of laundry and it stayed dry. Any suggestions.
