Wire brush the rust away as much as possible, then vacuum out the crud. Go to an auto parts store and get a quart of Bondo auto body filler. (paintable silicon-latex caulk will work for awhile if you are lazy). Read the directions and use it, make sure a little squeezes through the holes. Leave as smooth a surface as possible, make sure to slope putty towards drain. Don't bother sanding after it hardens, no one will see it. Don't get any in the holes that are supposed to be there, as it could kill the water pump. Paint the Bondo and entire inside of tub with oil based paint like Rustoleum. You may also want to wire brush and paint the transmission shaft, as it is probably pretty rusty too. Let it dry until it doesn't smell anymore, then wash a load of your own clothes before you let your wife wash anything she cares about, just in case, cya, etc.
Now, start saving for that new washer you're going to need in about a year.

Hate to say it, but even if you can find a new tub, it would cost you more than the machine is worth. The plywood backing gave away the year of this model from the start, so it is an oldie. Even in the repair business, we rarely ever replaced a tub because GE only used a repair stick called "Slap Stick". This was like an epoxy type repair that you molded around the holes. Problem is this stuff will only fill a small type hole. If you are dead set in wanting to keep this washer going, you can run to Home Depot or Lowes and pick up a roll of what I call tar tape. It is a roll of flexable window flashing that is cutable. You cut a peice about three times the size of the hole, pell off the covering, then use force to stick it like tape. This doesnt always work, but worth a try. You can also stick the tape to the bottom around the same area, and have both peices of tape touch where the hole is. Give it a try,
