I tore down the machine to the point where I separated the front half of the plastic drum from the rear half and could get a good look at the space between the spin basket and the plastic tub. Turns out the rim at the front of the metal spin basket has worn a groove in the front, flat face of the plastic tub - that is what the debris is, plastic that has been machined off the tub surface by the spin basekt. My wife tells me several days ago when the unit was running she noticed an odor almost like burning plastic, so that fits with this rub event during the high speed spin cycle. So at a minimum I need to replace the front half of the plastic tub (~$155 for the part), but now I'm worried that the steel spin basket is out of round - looks like it when I turn it by hand, and I'm wondering if that is what is now causing the vibrations at high speed spin. If I'm not mistaken that is a very expensive part ~$500+? If that's the case and if it needs replaced, I think I'm done with the machine - not worth fixing and frankly it's been nothing but trouble from day 1. Any accurte way to check the "roundess" of the spin basket? What I can't figure out is how this happened, unless something got caught between the spin basket and the tub...

If that is the case it's usually time to get a new machine.
