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.

I had called a repair man; and fortunately he never returned my call. After reading many of the reviews involved with the same problem, and wanting to use my washer, I decided it was easy enough to give it a try. And so it was. 2 screws in back removed the cover; and 2 screws in the front of the washer permitted the removal of the affected part. Removed three "plugs" from old; put them on the new part; replaced it back in the washer, and replaced the two front screws, which held it in place. Replaced top, securing with the two screws. And surprise - surprise -- the washing machine was working again! Your reviews were so helpful and encouraging --- that this really old lady decided to try it --- and like they all said "It was really easy to fix."

one broken shock

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.

right side pin for shock.

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

What was not mentioned in the instructions was that the right side pin can not be removed very easilly since there is a large metal box that is mounted directly behind the pin which keeps it from being removed without great effort and potential. I was able to remove the pin without destroying it but it would never go back in the same way because it is impossable to line up the schock, bushing and hole so I installed the pin from the front side and I will take my chances as to how long it lasts. machine seems to be running fine. Thanks

Washer shaking and making loud noise during spin cycle.

Removed front panel, used socket to compress lock tab on plastic pins holding shocks. Still taks a little effort to get them out. The one behind a plastic drain canister is a proble as there doesn't seem to be a good method for moving that canister. I think that's why the spare pin is provided.

Sadly, my case was one of the lower percentage where the problem is in the rear bearing area. The shocks were, the top support springs were good but the rear of the washer drum was shot. Opted to replace with new washer rather than go through the much longer repair with the almost $300 in parts.

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!
