Hotpoint WT960 leaking from the bottom

Hello, is there anyone that can identify what the problem is with my washing machine that has developed a small leak. I recently dyed some clothes and this forunately helped in highlighting where it's coming from.

These images are taken from the bottom of the tub.

It's the classic "should I repair or replace?" question. I think I've had the machine for about 8 years now, so I'm swaying towards replace (plus, I like shiny new things).

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Hello. It looks like it's leaking from the seal between the two halves of the outer drum. It would need the entire drum removing and stripping down. However, I can't find a drum seal available, only the two halves of the drum separately. Potentially one or both could come with the seal. To be honest, it might just not be worth worth repairing.
