Let's place bets. Mine is on the connector between the two-way valve and the pump intake. I think that's a pretty easy fix. But go ahead and take the top off, don't be shy!

Mine was doing that because the oring on water tank would roll up when i would drop it down. Had to use some food safe grease to stop it from doing it.

Check the tubes that drain into the front plastic water drain....sometimes they get pushed back, rather than properly flowing into, the drain pan when replace the pan after cleaning, and then leak out when drying the puck. Just push them back up a little bit.
