We went on line and found the correct part. It arrived in 3 days. said it might take 7. Husband and son dismantled the old plastic outer tub that had been slit by the screwdriver. Put the new one in, and filled the tub up with water to check for leaks. When the water got to the level of the fill line, it started leaking. We pumped the water out and stopped to wait for daylight. Next day we lifted the top of the machine and filled it again...the line that goes to the water level knob...was off. The woman found the leak and put the hose back on. We were semi worried when we read the reviews, but in the daylight, it really wasn't all that difficult to change out the broken tub.
