I followed the instructions posted on the partselect.com website. 1. Turned off the water. 2. Unscrewed the fill hoses, and drain hose. There was a bit of water to drain from each, so I used a bucket. 3. Next I lifted the top of the washer and used a 5/16 nutdriver to take out the two screws holding on the front panel. 4. I then separtated the tub-to-pump hose, and the fill level tube. 5. I then took out all six of the suspension springs. 6. I then tipped the washer back, (with a helper) and removed the drive belt. 7. Then I took out the tub, through the top and set it upside down on the floor. 8. I loosened the six screws around the drive pulley, to release the Snubber ring. **VERY IMPORTANT** DO NOT TAKE THE SIX SCREW ALL THE WAY OUT!! 9. I walked the Snubber ring out and put the new one on, making sure it stayed even all the way around. 10. I tightened the six screws back up and put the tub back into the washer cabinet, being careful not to damage the plastic pulley on the bottom of the tub. 11. I installed the new (6) suspension springs. 12. I re-attached the tub-to-pump hose, and the fill level tube. 13. I re-attached the drain hose and the fill hoses. 14. Turn on the washer, check for leaks and you should be good to go. The washer works as good as new, I am very pleased.
