I replaced the brake spring(not really necessary) and the snubber ring.I also installed a new thrust bearing kit,but the problem turned out to be a bad transmission.I found a good working used one at a local junk yard and so far it is working great.Your how to videos were very helpful in getting the job done properly.Thanks very much!

The pump did not fit the washer. The pump sat too far down causing the nozzle to be impeded by the shape of the washer base.

The pump did not fit the washer. The situation required that I drill holes in the washer base to match holes in the pump base. The pump sat too far down causing the nozzle to be impeded by the shape of the washer base. To rectify this I used bolts and nuts to secure pump to washer base and used three washers for each of the three nuts to raise the pump into the proper position. After jockeying the pump into place, it works fine, so far. The water pump is a simple enough device that relays on sturdy bearings and a proper seal. If the pump fails it will be entirely because the bearings wore out as with the last much cheaper replacement pump I purchased ($14). The original started leaking eight years after we bought the machine.

Used Putty Knife to release a tab on left split of cover/lid assembly lifting up slightly to release the tab, then I repeated the same on the right side. With the belt already flung off of the unit, I saw the 2 screws inside left/right top corners holding the front cover On. I tilted it forward and up and released from two clips on the bottom of the unit. With the front cover removed I saw the pump on the lower right side of the tank. 3 screws and 2 hoses hold the pump in place. Once pump was removed reversed how it was taken apart.

Took apart liked shown in diagram. Re-assembled in reverse order. Destroyed tub seal on disassemble. Also had to cut spanner off with sawzall as it was corroded badly. On the transmission pulley bearing kit. I had to file the pulley shaft down in order to get the correct adjustment for brake release. Took me awhile to figure that out as there was no way the jesus clip was going back on with either washer. Once filed went right together and using the thin washer I was still at the min adjustment.

Shaking, bouncing, banging, during the spin cycle

I followed the directions online, but they don't talk about two difficulties with this model. The first is removing the drive belt. This is CRUCIAL! Tilt the dryer backwards, and remove the belt from the pulleys. When putting it back on, when the repair is complete put it on the two smaller pulleys first, and then the large pulley. The other difficulty that is not addressed with this model is accessing the suspension springs. If you choose not to remove the entire housing, I would use a wooden block (2x4 works great) to act as a lever for the vicegrips. I may be weak, but I have a bruised forearm that would have been avoided if I had thought of the wooden block earlier.

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.
