Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The basket is positioned on the hub, beyond that there is no other positioning. It may not be exactly centered and that is okay. The cement around the top of the tub can sometimes deform the metal. Unless it is rubbing, I would not be too concerned.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
There is no cement around the top of the tub and both the tub are perfectly round. From time to time hear rubbing or some other type of contact but see no evidence of contact. do see some evidence of wear on the gentle cycle solenoid, that is why I question positioning / indexing of the transmission
