I removed the belt and pully form under the washer. Lefted the top cover, removed the hardware above the tub, took the front cover panel off to gain access to the tub. Used pliers to remove the springs. Lifted the tub up high enough to install the snubber ring. After putting tht washer back together and doing the first the load the washer stopped banging.

Washer would stop in the midst of a cycle and have to be reset.The belt was more than likely old and stretched and was not engaging properly.

Tilted the washer as described in the "video".I was able to "balance" the washer with one hand and remove and install the belt with my other hand. The whole process took less than five minutes.It was just a matter of turning the pulley and "pushing " the belt on with my hand.The washer works great.Trust me, I've NEVER had anything go easier than this installation in my life.Thanks for a great video, and getting the correct part out as quickly as you did.

1. Turn water supply faucets to off. 2) disconnect hoses from washer and unplug from wall outlet. 3) take drain hose from discharge drain. 4) pull washer out and away fro wall, tilt with back of washer facing you. See belt and pulley wheels beneath. 5) turn pulley with hands, listen for screeching. Remove the belt. (6)remove access plate on the back of washer. See drain pump. Loosen the clamps on hoses and pull the hoses off the pump. 7) remove the three screws holding pump, lift pump out. Installation is reverse order of removal? Do not pry belt on, pull the brake pulley little and turn the drum pulley and it will slide on.. You do not want to bend or brake the pulley wheels.

Remove the access panel on the lower back of the washer, the pump is on the rear left side and is help in place by 3 screws. Remove both hoses with pliers and the screws and the pump is out. Install the new pump and connect the hoses and lean the washer back to connect the belt on the bottom.

Tilted washer backward and simply took old belt off and replaced with new by wrapping smaller pulley's first and larger pulley last. Next was a simple replacement of pump through back panel of washer. Washer is now quite and spins clothes more efficiently and reduces dryer times.

EXAMINED THE WASHER AND DETERMINED THE HOSES WERE FINE. REMOVED THE ACCESS PANEL FROM THE BACK OF THE WASHER, PULLED OUT THE DRAIN PUMP. LOOKING INSIDE THE PUMP WHILE TURNING THE PULLEY I WAS ABLE TO DETERMINE NOTHING INSIDE THE PUMP WAS MOVING. ONCE THE PUMP WAS PULLED APART (4 SCREWS) IT WAS OBVIOUS THE WHEEL INSIDE THE PUMP BROKE OFF. WE ORDERED THE NEW PART ON SUNDAY (FROM PARTSELECT) AND IT WAS SITTING ON MY DOOR STEP WEDNESDAY. THAT'S FAST. 30 MINUTES LATER EVERYTHING WAS HOOKED BACK UP AND WE WERE BACK IN BUSINESS. ONE LAST POINT: WHEN PUTTING THE DRIVE BELT BACK ON, PUT THE BELT ON THE 2 SMALL PULLEYS FIRST, THEN PUT IT ON THE LARGE PULLEY LAST. THANKS TO PARTSELCT !

was really easy. I watched the video and was done in less than 10 minutes. I read other stories and pushing the tub over and removing and installing the screws would have been very difficult. Opening the lid was very easy then the screws are right there in front of you.

Lots of water on laundry room floor. A couple of months earlier, there was a noise like when you put a playing card on your bike spokes...

Just followed the video! 1. Removed the belt. 2. Removed the back (the video said the water pump was in the front, but mine was in the back), 3. Removed the hoses (using bucket and towels to collect the water, 4. Removed the three screws that hold the pump in place, 5. Put in the new pump, 6. Connected the hoses, 7. Reinstalled the belt, and 8. Fretted as the first load of clothes were washed...

Washer was noisier than usual, after a while could smell something getting hot, and then the machine stopped working. After a while it would start again but not for long.

I had some expert advise on what the problem was so that made it easier to consentrate on the fix. I was surprised to find so much information on this web page. Getting the right part ordered was also very easy. The repair instructions given by other people was all correct, tiling the machine to get the belt off, removing the back access panel, was all correct and made it easy. The hard part was getting the machine out of the small wash room and into the garage where I had room to work on it. A good dolly and a wooden ramp came in handy . A word of advice woud be to operate the hot & cold water faucets on & off every year or so to be sure they work easily when the time comes, maybe an emergency. After 12 years I was worried my valves would give me a problem. (.they didnt).

The repair was very simple. We got the part faster than we thought we would had our son hold the washer on a tilt and put on the drive belt, took 2 times because it was twisted but we got on. The washer is much quieter and it was worth the shipping fee.

Washer jumping around during spin cycle

I used Utube to search for Performa Washing machine jumping around. You will find several videos that will be extreamly helpful in understanding exactly how to go about changing the sunbber ring. The snubber ring is fairly easy to change out. Quarters were used to hold the springs apart so they can be removed. Push the tub forward and away from the spring you want to remove. Install several quarters in the spring. Use as many as you can get in. Then pull the tub toward you and the spring can be removed from the tub. There are six springs to remove. I just left them laying in place at the bottom of the washing machine base. There are videos on utube also of using the quarters to remove the springs. Of course if you have spring removal tool for this purpose so much the better. I didn't have one. Good luck with your install. MB in TN
