Question about Amana Washing Machines
Before using silicone , I would try removing all rust, and checking if the seal is having good grip once the rust had been removed.
Silicone is a sealant, therefore in some way it may help fixing the problem in case there is no other solution. However silicone paste may prevent the gasket from having correct grip on the metal/ceramic part.
Silicone is completely removable from metal or painted parts, therefore you should be able to use sealant paste on the appliance without risking to damage it.

Thanks for using FixYa. The leaks may be due too a bad tub seal. If the seal is fine then it may be due to pump or center seals in the middle under outer tank are gone bad. If these are working fine then it may be a belt problem due to belt not being slipped correctly and the inner basket spins too quickly. In this case the water is thrown up and over the tank cover and side walls. Many times a new belt and idler pulley is required to correct this, motor pulley is cleaned and the tank cover gasket is sometimes needed to be replaced. Also check the sediment tube on the wash basket which may becomes brittle over the years and can break. This will cause water leakage into the outer tub during the wash mode. Since the pump is turning all the time the washer is running, the water will be pumped out too soon.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
