A good marine type silicone sealant (like what you might use on boats) might buy you some time. However, with the vibration of the machine and the torque applied to the tub when the transmission and drive motor engage to spin will only make the crack worse over time. Sorry, but you might want to think about replacing the tub.

What size is an Amana washer LW8303W2

I had the very same question, so I can buy a replacement that is just as big. Not finding the answer online, but only your question, I measured mine and calculated the volume at about 2.5 cubic feet. I am surprised it seems so small, because it is labeled as an extra large capacity. Of course, it is now about 15 years old, so maybe the new ones are mega washers or something. I wonder if I will get that much time out of a new one.

Magic Chef washing machine getting out of balance

it is a sign that the dampeners on the ends of the tub suspension or support rods have failed
A pack of 4 cost around $80.00 and with a technician doing the job can be done in 15 minutes
with you doing the job , around 1 hour unless you can get the spares people to explain how it is done
get the spares from the service agent spares
any unbalance gets out of control unless it is got under control very early and that is what these dampeners are designed to do and 4-5 years is the design life expectancy

Amana Distinction super capacity plus 3.3 stainless great, no vibration, but in the spin cycle it has started to roar, being very loud. Why did this start..could it be the idler roller for the...

You have a tub seal that has leaked and the tub bearing has gotten wet and started to rust. This problem will continue to get worse and louder until the tub bearing falls apart. This is a major repair , the parts are not that expensive to replace, ( about $60.00 )but the labor involved is major. In some cases the washer is replaced for this problem. I also would not recommend you attempt this repair yourself. This job takes a professional about 3-5 hours, and sometimes the seal will leak again anyway. If you do decide to attempt this repair I will try to find you a detailed step by step guide. But, be prepaired to replace the machine if the repair fails. It is a major job. I know this is not what you wanted to hear, but its not a horse so shoot it and get another one. that would be my suggestion.
