Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly. Are you talking about the stainless filter?

Is it the bottom of the tub that is warped?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the tub is not warped, nothing is bent, the filter is a very thin, and has delaminated from the tub on a small section, it is becoming apparent to me that you know nothing about the machine. For example could you answer the question as to what holds the filter tight to the tub in the first place? If you don't know, why waste your time.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
I have worked on hundreds of these machines, the filter can not delaminate from the tub it is a separate piece all together. The filter removes from the unit and just sits inside the sump and is held in by the turn lock that supports the wash arm.
