When you try to order a new lint filter, I don't believe you will be able to get that white plastic filter with all the fins the qunks up anyway. The thing they have replaced it with is 4 little rubber disk with little rubber fingers and they plug in the holes that use to retain the platic filter.

Truthfully, you may be better off just leaving it out and forgeting it. --- What do the other Master think of this idea????

The white filter was replaced by the black plug filters because the newer spin baskets are deeper, the white filter would drag on the bottom of the fiberglass tub...you can replace the white filter with the black filter plugs, however cannot replace the black filter plugs with the white fan filter as it would scrape the tub bottom.....the white filter may still be available....I will check...from what I have read in the tech forums those black filters do not do a very good job of collecting lint but I suppose are better than nothing....

Ok, the white filter is replaced by these so guess there is not any choice here...

We followed the steps in this thread in order to remove our inner basket, sand off the rust & repaint.  In doing so, we broke the old, large white lint filter and replaced it with the new small black lint filter plugs. 

However, when we put everything back together again, there is a large (about 1") gap between the inner metal basket and the bottom of the agitator.  We've walked carefully through the parts looking at the assembly diagram and at the photos we took while taking the machine apart.  Everything looks right but we are novices and must be missing something! 

An other clue:  it seems like the inner metal basket is sliding down too far on the shaft.  When we replace the large nut that attaches to the block, it seems fine.  But when we then add the rectangular plastic washer that has a post on the top and bottom, the bottom post doesn't slide into the slot in the block as far as I think it should. 

Is there something, a type of spacer, that is supposed to go under the metal inner basket, between it and the outer plastic tub now that we've removed the old white plastic lint filter?

Finally, there is one more clue that may or may not be related.  The washer no longer spins.  It will agitate, but not spin.  If this isn't related, we'll solve that problem next. 

We have learned a lot from this site and all the advice that has been given to others.  Thanks!
