Hope I get all the info in here so here goes.The mentioned washing machine was leaking some and I opened it up and found one of the shocks broken. I went ahead and started a cycle to watch for the leak and on the bottom of the tub, right behind what I believe is the drain (large bellows looking black hose 2-3" in diameter) there is a round spot on the tub with a hole in it. How in the world does this happen? I am trying to fix the tub before I order the shocks. Any ideas on this? I think I am going to try some 2 part patching system. Thanks in advance.

Usually a hole broken in the tub indicates a much worse problem.  Usually a broken spider which let the spin basket contact the outer tub.

I've never seen one break a hole there, usually see it on the back of the tub shell towards the top or bottom left side when looking at the back.

See if you have any give to the inner spin basket in relation to the out tub.  Grab the stainless basket and try to move it up/down/sideways, it should be good and solid and not move without moving the complete wash tub.
