Customer Question

I have a Kenmore washer about 7 yrs old....great machine...however....when we were moving last week, the inner tub basin, the hard plastic one, accquired a small crack on the bottom of the tub.   I was wondering, is it worth it to replace that part, or set it out for the trash man? I have the machine all tore down...but, I don't really want to spend a lot of money on it... Can I buy USED parts somewhere cheap?? please help?    Series 80- Model # XXXXX
