I followed the instructions in the video that was provided by Partselect for the repair. My washer is a Maytag and the back does not come off like the washing machine in the video, so I had a little difficulty installing the new springs in the back. Once the new springs were connected all was well. Also not shown in the video was the fact that once I removed the motor to the washer to get at the side springs, the belt on the bottom of the pulley had to be put back on. Repair was not hard at all.
