My machine overheated in the high speed spin cycle, rubbing the door gasket and created a stinky cloud of steam and some rubber crumbs. I don't think it's a bearing issue (wiggled and spun without notable issues) but the front rim of the basket seems out of round, in fact the X and Y axis measured diameters differ by 5/8 inch. I'm thinking of trying to return it to round with some force. Ideas?

There are a number of possibilities here;

you are in a hard water area and that is deposited calcium. Use Calgon or some type of water softener.

You are using washing powder instead of HE (high efficiency) liquid.

You are using a cold wash with powder when you need to use warm water.

The washing machine needs descaling. The white is calcium from the heater element and tank.

i have the whirlpool top loader also. Was not quiet a year old, starts running at random by itself. They sent the repair man out got lectured that it was my fault (too much soap, washer is in basement, I need to call an electrician to check the wiring). Now it drips water into the inside of the washer.
I can see it will eventually be cheaper to replace than call the repairman back.... Won't be a Whirlpool

There should be an open end at the back of the washer, where the house initially was fixed.

If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, or the heating element circuit has failed, the F05 error code will be displayed. Might need to be taken to a repairman

Pop the top cover off the agitator to access the 4 agitator dogs.
They must be replaced.
