Took the whole machine apart tipped tub upside down to put on snubber ring. One person had to hold down very very firmly to the metal ring that fits on top of the snubber ring while another person quickly screwed in the screws to hold it down.
The springs required an extra strong person and a few words of frustration to stretch to get them on. My son who is 39 years old did it. My 60 year old husband would not have had the strength to stretch the springs.
So far it works great. My son washed his carheart jumpsuit and coat with not a sound or wiggle. Your trouble shooting site was what made us decide to order what we did because of the percentages of what the problem was beside each part. Thank you for being so prompt in sending our parts.They came so quickly we weren't without a washer but maybe a day or two.
