Replaced the hose and new clamps. Rans washer through complete cycle. Found that during the spin cycle the tub seemed un-balanced and was making a metallic ticking sound.
Found that the thre struts which attach to the tub were loose-- especially the front nut. Found two halves of lead washer laying on bottom of washer cabinet. The washer had fallen out from behind the front strut and nut. Placed the washer back between the strut and tub and tightened the nut and the metallic sound was gone as well as most of the tub swaying during the spin cycle. Tightened all three strut's nuts. Ran washer through and additional cycle and washer was back to normal. The loose nuts seem to have caused excessive tub sway which in turn put extra stress on the tub hose connection to cause the original leak. Machine is 25 years old and still washing well!
