Bouncing and noisy washer

I had read the instructions and suggestions on the site. The product arrived with a good set of instructions. I used the deep socket to push in the "catch" on the pins. Once the catch is depressed I pulled and twisted a bit to get the pins out. After I pulled both broken shocks out I replaced them as instructed. I did use a long wooden dowel to get the pins all the way in. Read the instructions and follow what they tell you and it'll be done in under 15 min.

Disconnected hoses, unplugged, took off top and back of washer. Removed the white plastic thingys that retained the broken shock absorbers. Installed the new ones, using a hammer and 1/2" copper pipe section to place white plastic thingys. Put back, top on. Reconnected hoses, plugged in. Presto!

First I removed two screws in front lower panel to access lower portion of washer machine. Use pilars to push four plastic pins from each end of two vibration/shock abs. Job was very easy and took less than 30 minutes to complete.

Watched video on-online when I ordered the parts. The video showed the left side shock replacement and it looked very easy, however; the right side require a little more work due to the motors and electrical box that had to be moved before I could remove the shock pins. I layed the washing machine on its back and removed the broken shocks and put the bottom pins back in on each schock and then stood the machine back up right; took the back panel off so I could replace the upper pins on both sides with ease. I then went to the front and re-attached all the hoses, clamps, and electrical box. Before I replace the front panel, I took a 1/4 socket and wratchet and leveled the machine in its perminent place by adjusting the four feet by reaching into the machine with the 1/4 inch socket and wratchet and adjusting the feet one by one until level.

one of shock absorbers was broken

I followed the instructions that came with the parts. I used a regular socket to remove the pins instead of the deep well socket recommended, because I didn't take the machine completely apart. and the space wasn't enough for the deep well sockets. It worked perfectly. After I got the pins removed, then oriented the absorbers correctly and pushed and pulled the pins back in place and it was done.

Assumed this 12 year old washer was broken beyond repair so went to Lowe's and paid $880 for a new one. Out of curiosity, I removed the back and the lower front panel from the old washer to see why it would not work and found the two shock absorbers were both broken. I ordered new ones and it took me 15 minutes with a pair of pliers and a small hammer to replace the shocks. The washer now works perfectly again and I could have saved $880! Goodwill is going to get lucky on this one!

with the help of my nephew, we unstacked dryer after power sources were shutoff first. then simply removed the two screw attaching lid on washer. then removed two screws holding switch from front of machine. fished switch up to a visible area, exchanged bad for good. fed switch back to it's home,then reversed assembly procedures. these forums are great and have saved me money by enabling the repair both washer and dryer at a very reasonable cost without the need of a certified repair person.

The tub had severe vibration and actually impacted the sides of the washer

The machine had the vibration for sometime but still worked so we left it alone until it stopped working. After some trouble shooting I discoverd 1. both lower shocks were broken off and the tub had hit the controller connector on the front right side so hard it had come loose. After plugging it back the washer worked again so I ordered the shock absorber kit from part select. I was able to install it by only removing the front lower cover. The pins took some effort to push back in but the parts fit perfectly and we are back in business. I had to use a large set of channel locks to force the pins back in as well as tapping them with a hammer.

Washer error code said control board($200.) but this web site said Door Lock and Switch assembly($80). Web site was correct, thankyou for saving me money and time for the real repair needed.

when I replaced the other one it was broken also but you wouldn't know it by just looking at it. The only problem being able to get the new one back on I put it on pushing from the front, I can only imagine the ttrouble I'll have get it out again I'll probable have to cut it out with somthing because it's right up against the circiut board housing. other wise not a bad job. But I think my age has somthing to do with it.Not much strength.

First I unplugged. The machine from the outlet then disconnected the two water supply lines from the machine. Next I removed the back panel to gain access to the bottom of the drum. Next I took a nut driver and used it to depress the little tab on the push pin that hold the bottom part of the strut on. After getting the pins out I replaced the old strut assembly withe the new one. I used the nut driver again. But this time I used it as a set tool. Place the nut driver on the end of the push pin and gently tap with a hammer. Until the pin is all the way in. After that I reversed the assembly process to put the machine back together.

The door on the washer would not lock, therefore, you could not wash clothes.

After some research online about my Frigidaire Washer, I pre-determined that the problem could likely be the lock mechanism. I ordered the part and it arrived within 3 business days. My son removed the screws from the back of the washer, slid the top off and removed the old part and replaced it with the new part. It took about 20 mins. The machine is now working properly again. The door catch that I ordered did not work with the door lock I ordered. However, the old door catch that was still in good working order does work with the new door lock and switch assembly that I purchased.

Both shocks were broken!!!

Everything on the video was fine except when reinstalling the shocks with the plastic pins it was almost impossible to get a hammer back inside to knock in shock on left side and had a plastic part on the right side behind the shock absorber which you could not use a hammer and could pry on that part out of fear of damaging it when reinstalling pin So the video just said the right side just like the left but each side was different in what was located by each side Just confusing meaning you had to be creative in solving them!
