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

I am a single women and was very proud of this accomplishment:My washer began making horrible noise when agitating (only), I did some research (on this site) on what the problem could be. I decided to replace the drain pump and belt. It was so much easier than I expected and now, it works with no bad sounds. I have a very simple model, nothing fancy and I hope that is why it was so easy.. not much going on. I am proud of myself since I did all this on my own.. no man helped! :)

I lifted the washer and supported it in the front, then slipped the drive belt off the large agitator pulley. I then tried to turn each of the 3 pulleys under the machine. The Drain Pump was definitely seized. I removed the small access panel in the rear of the machine, removed the 2 drain hoses by releasing the clamps with pliers. Removed the 3 screws with a socket wrench and removed the pump. The new pump was a perfect fit, and we are back up and running. Thank You.

Followed existing instruction to get tub and transmission out of the machine but we couldn't get the transmission free. Wound up taking the tub with the transmission attached to an appliance dealter who said we needed to remove the retaining clip on the bearing at the top of the transmission (inside the tub). We didn't have the tool to do that so we left it at the service center (60 miles from our location) and paid $291 for the repair then had to reassemble the unit when we got it home.

I watched the video. Not as easy to hand start the screws ,as shown, in the new hinges (I replaced both) I used a drill with a phillips bit to pre start the screws with the hinge in a vise. It then had threads cut, which made it possible to hand start, and I finished with the drill/bit to tighten up.
