Drain line leak

New washer/dryer when used floor got wet. Opened up wall and drawer and found drain pipes leaking. What can I do to stop the leak. Hate to cut pipes if possible seal it. Leak appears to be at an elbow as it exits the closet I have pics but not sure how to post. Please give me some advise. Thanks.

If drain pipe is pex, they make repair push-on cut the line at the leak and insert....there also is a release thing they call a tool to make removing the push-on fittings possible.....Home Depot/Lowes carry these. Are the fittings in that area clamped on with a metal band?

The drain liine is probably pvc. If it's not under warranty, cut the elbow/line out and fit with new. May be tough to maneuver, but the process is easy.
