My bearing went out and caused some internal damage to my washer. I had the service man come to fix. I do not remember what parts he replaced but I remember 2 big boxes and 1 small box of parts. When he left I inspected the washer an noticed the Front Tub Outer is worn through on the edge in some places. Is it ok to operate the washer like this? It is not leaking water. Thank you

Marc for Model Number MFW9800TKO

ANSWER Marc, You're OK. You may want to get some emory cloth and lightly sand the damaged areas that may snag the clothing, and watch the overloading. Sounds like you had a tub bearing failure, causing the spin tub to spin out of alignment and damaged the outer tub assembly. Hope this was helpful, Good Luck
