pulled out washer from the wall tilted back towards the wall. removed front panel by pulling it out at the bottom. .removed belts by spinning the pulley .similar to taking a bike chain off. cleaned all pulleys with a degreaser 409 etc. springs are under the motor. slide motor away from you. remove springs with needle nose pliers from the front. to install new springs hook them to the rear of the motor first. fish them under the motor then grab them with needle nose pliers and hook to the front of the bracket. you could also tie a fishing line to the front of the spring and pull it thru that way. install belts [very easy]. did not need plastic guides. i did not install
