Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your washer today. The inner basket should just slide up and down on the shaft with no trouble whatsoever. If you have corrosion on your shaft (which is common on these Cabrio washers), you'll need to sand the shaft down so that the basket just slides up and down on the shaft effortlessly. If the corrosion is too bad, the main bearing and seal which comes with the center shaft would need to be replaced.
