From what I've read and also noticed with my baskets shaft brackets deterioration and falling apart I've come to the conclusion that people are probably not using the correct detergent as told to do so in the washer manual. Is it possible to use the front tub section if the small rim that goes around the drum is rubbed away by the loose basket....The washer had no leaks inside or out but the front tub has been rubbed to the point that the rim is gone .... The bellows seal is still good and as I said no leaks..do you think I could still use the front tub assembly with this small rim missing?

ANSWER Hello Rob. No, I would replace the front tub assembly 285982 as I am replacing the rear tub assembly W10253864. This will prevent the unit from developing a leak, where the tub has become weak from the damage to it. Hope this helps.
