So unfortunately the only way to determine what is between the tub is by removing the entire tub assembly and splitting it apart. This is quite a task and usually only done to remove something between the tubs, or replacing the bearing. I do have a video that will show you everything that is involved if you wanted to split the tub apart so below is a link to that video. In addition to that, if you find that nothing is between the tub, look at the back support on the back of the inner basket. It has 3 arms and it's called the "spider". Sometimes one of the arms breaks loose and if that happens all you can do is either re-weld the arm, or replace the entire tub assembly.
