Kenmore front loader washer leaking

Kenmore washer model 417.43142200, purchased in 2003. Water is leaking from the plastic outer tub during the final spin. We removed the bottom front panel and can see the water dripping off during the final spin. I'm assuming that the leak is from the seal or that the plastic tub itself has a defect. Should I try tightening the bolts that hold the 2 halves of the outer tub together? Would the O-ring need to be replaced? How much life can I expect out of this model? (I have read of the bearings going out on this model.) Thanks for any wisdom that you can pass along.
