I have a Kenmore Elite. I believe I have had it for a little over 6 years with minimal issues. The other day I ran the clean cycle - usually have just ran a normal cycle when cleaning the washer. Well the bottom drum (if I am using the right term) has come completely loose. It doesn't appear like it broke off but it just come loose again.

I am attaching a picture of the issue. Thanks

This has never happened before. It first happen a couple of days ago. Nothing appears loose. I re tightened the screw but it came off again on a wash cycle. I have purchased a replacement part. Most of the reviews said that the original part wore down and that caused the problem.
