I've never come across that problem but you may try increasing the diameter of your screw. You may have may have stripped out screw hole in spin basket. I assume you're speaking of the six whole Hub that screws into the spin basket.

When you get a screw that fits properly. use Loctite when you put them into the location and make sure it cures for an hour or so before using the machine.
