Follow the video to remove the cabinet. Did NOT have to lay the unit on its back in order to replace all 5 springs. These may be easily replaced with the washer standing upright. The back Suspension Spring was removed by using the access hole in the back of the washer to remove the screw holding the back spring bracket in place. Reassembled the cabinet per the video. Except for moving the washer around, this was an extremely easy repair. To facilitate moving the washer - use Moving PADS placed under the 4 feet of the washer.

Machine wobbled during spin cycle. Appeared to have some loosened part in the rear of the machine (noted some flexing on the front of the cabinet during spin).

Disconnected electrical and then water inputs on the rear of the cabinet. Tipped the machine onto its front. Found that a spring was unhooked and dangling from a bracket. I searched for the location to secure the spring and found a hole on the rear base of the cabinet rusted through. I drilled another mounting hole nearby, Since the original spring had also broke, I replaced it with a new one from PartSelect, securing it between its bracket and the new retaining hole. Returned the machine to its upright position, reconnected water input lines, then its electrical. The machine works fine once again.

Took the cabinet apart really easily with Part Selects helpful video. Removed old suspension springs by removing outer brackets on two of them and by using pliers on the third one. The tub spring was totally missing. Put on two new brackets and springs with the nut driver. Then stretched the third spring into place. Replaced the tub spring by stretching into place and then put cabinet back together. All done very quickly!!! Now it works perfectly and runs very quietly.

Big problem was finding the part. Thanks to Part Select for that. The washer still works fine and pretty well looks like new but the lid had hit end-of-life. A little tricky because the screws hold the lid on had corroded from all the soap etc. and I was worried about them stripping. But all's well.

After removing the body housing for the washer to find the problem, I left the housing off until my drain hose arrived (in 2 business days). Remember to keep your spring hose rings from the old drain hose. Within 10 minutes, I had the new drain hose attached and clipped in to the rear of the machine. Within 30 minutes, my wife was washing a load of clothes. **Reminder: This is a good time to thoroughly clean the areas of your washer that you normally do not get to. Also remember that your first load of clothes washed after the repairs and cleaning should be dark (i.e. jeans or work clothes) should their be any residual dirt in your drum after cleaning.

Water leaking from under front of machine

After watching the video and reading some of the instructions posted on Parts Select I disconnected the power cord, shut off and disconnected the water lines before laying the washer down on its "back" with help of a dolly.(IF you don’t own a dolly this can still be done without one but I recommend having a friend help you depending on your age and health) Once I had the washer laid down it became apparent to me that I didn’t need to take the whole "cover" off but could do the repair from the bottom of the machine. Following the instructions I first removed the hose clamps from the hose running from the pump to the tub and the hose that runs to the back of the machine where the drain to the wall attaches. I then "popped" the two clips off the pump as described in the video and after removing the pump I turned the clips to the side and removed them as well. At this point I removed the clamp from the "pump to tub" hose on the tub side and then removed the hose. I followed this up by removing the entire hose assembly that the "pump to drain hose" hose attaches too. Once you've seen this "assembly" you'll understand what I mean. Anyway, once that was done and the new parts had arrived (parts came quickly I placed my order on Thru evening and received them on Tues with the Labor Day weekend in-between) Install was as simply as removal, I laid the machine down using the dolly and then simply installed everything starting with "pump to drain hose assembly" then the "tub to pump hose" then the pump itself and finally both hoses to the pump. The "pump to tub" hose came with two new clamps however they are the type of hose clamps requiring the use of a screw drive to tighten not the original type it had on it that you just squeeze with pliers. I used the new ones that came in the package. The other hose didn’t come with a clamp and only has one where it connects to the pump, so I reused the original. I would suggest that you also check or just replace the drain line that runs from the machine to the wall at the same time as the rest of this repair as I did not and the 1st time I ran the machine that hose sprung a leak.

The Part Select on-line video is excellent! All I did differently was lay the washer casing face down on an old bedspread so I didn't have to get down on my knees when replacing the lid switch.
