My Kenmore washing machine has been leaking water.   It is an older machine (circa late 1980's??).   What are the chances the incoming pipe is leaking vs the wash tub have a hole rusted through it?

The most likely source of the leak is the pump. The wash tubs are a type of plastic, they don't rust out.

Also, check your supply hoses, and the drain hose.

You really need to find the leak before you buy any parts or junk the machine.

Post a modle number and we can be more specific.

Kenmore modle numbers start with 110.

Thanks.   The model number is........110-81362800

Also, I don't know whether this could have anything to do with the leaking, but I recently washed two new rugs that shed incredible amounts of fiber.   Is it maybe possible that could be plugging the incoming water?   We already checked the outgoing water and that's fine.
