Amana Washer - Water Leaking from Below Tub

Hey guys,

I have a top-loading, belt-driven Amana washer that is leaking from the back of the tub (when viewing with front panel open).

I'm assuming it needs new tub seals on the outer tub, but can anyone confirm or give input?

Basically, when I run a normal load and it starts filling, a small drizzle of water can be seen leaking from the back of the tub into the center hole of the bottom of the washer.


On another note, we had a burnt rubber smell coming from the washer when we accidentally blocked the drainage pipe while doing a load. The tub quit spinning which made me think the belt was done. I replaced the belt but noticed today when I was diagnosing the water leak, the smell started to come back a little bit. Could it possible be something else or could it just be left over smell coming out?

Thanks for your help!
