Sorry no its a big job but here goes isolate from electric and power remove lid and rear bottom cover.
remove soap drawer and remove screws you can see behind it then remove fascia, then undo the door seal and plinth cover ,then remove front panel.
then remove dispensor hose from tub, go to the back remove sump hose and motor and wiring to element then remove top front sub frame and undo the top and bottom weights then remove the pins that hold the suspension legs to the tub lift off the springs and the tub is free.
Then split the tub knock out the old replace with new that is assuming you dont damage the shaft of the drum support whilst removing il then do it all in reverse this normally takes me 2 hours it might take you 2 days but hey lifes full of challenges good luck
Hotpoint wd129 I suspect bearings gone drum has tilted and rub against outer casing and now leaking just under heating element. Does this mean a write off? Thanks Carlo.
