I replaced both shock absorbers that hold the drum on a front loading washer. They both snapped at the base and have since been replaced by a different style shock absorber. There are 2 pins that hold each part in place. I took 5 minutes to replace 3 pins and about an hour to replace the last one, which was in a very tight spot. After much sweating and swearing, I managed to get the pin back in. Was it worth it? ABSOLUTELY! Partsselect.com is a dream for straightforward repairs. This is the second repair I have done on this machine (which is less than 5 years old) and both repairs have cost less than $30.

Bouncing washing machine

The instructions that came with the new shock absorbers were very detailed and walked me through the repair step by step. The new shock absorbers are much better quality than the old tube style shocks.

Washer would not spin

easy repair. I went to the back of the washer and removed the two(?) screws that held the top panel on. Then moved to the front of the washer and unscrewed the two screws in the door frame holding the lock assembly. Pulled it up and out from the top of the washer and disconnected the three wire connections. Then I just reversed the process with the new part. It all worked great. This website rocks...

Drum was banging around when spooling up and slowing down

The front lower access panel pops off with two Philips head screws. From there, the white pins holding the hold broken shock absorbers can be removed by pressing their locking tab down and pushing them free of the bushing.

After pulling the old, broken items out, the new ones are reinstalled the same way: place the metal end towards the drum, push the white pin through the bushing (only one way is correct) and you're almost done. Reinstall the front panel and get back to having a quiet washing machine!

Washer would drain, but not spin

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."

right side pin for shock.

  • Customer: Joe from New Lenox, IL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 1 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
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 would spin in any cycle

Tilted the washer back to take the 2 screws off the bottom to remove bottom plate. Took the 2 nut screws from the bottom of the face plate so that the front of the washer would pull slightly out from the bottom. Removed the 2 screws from the door stricker plate which allowed the door lock assembly to come out through the side of the washer. Unplugged 3 plugs, plugged the new switch in and slid it back into place, put the 2 screws back in to hold it. Reattached the front and the bottom plate. And bingo done. It worked and saved us about $245.00. Very happy!!!

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.

I followed the great instructions provided on the site and had the old broken struts out in no time. The new ones went in without a hitch and the time it took me to unscrew and rescrew in the back of the machine was longer than the time it took me to replace the broken parts.

Bouncing and noisy washer

I had read the instructions and suggestions on the site. The product arrived with a good set of instructions. I used the deep socket to push in the "catch" on the pins. Once the catch is depressed I pulled and twisted a bit to get the pins out. After I pulled both broken shocks out I replaced them as instructed. I did use a long wooden dowel to get the pins all the way in. Read the instructions and follow what they tell you and it'll be done in under 15 min.

Disconnected hoses, unplugged, took off top and back of washer. Removed the white plastic thingys that retained the broken shock absorbers. Installed the new ones, using a hammer and 1/2" copper pipe section to place white plastic thingys. Put back, top on. Reconnected hoses, plugged in. Presto!

Followed the kit instructions to the letter. working around tight clearences was really the only thing to slow me down. The other posts tell the rest of the story better than I can.

First I removed two screws in front lower panel to access lower portion of washer machine. Use pilars to push four plastic pins from each end of two vibration/shock abs. Job was very easy and took less than 30 minutes to complete.
