I paid a plumber $150 to replace this part a year ago. I simply took the screws out,ordered the part,paid for 1 day shipping, and screwed the new part on. The washer DID NOT WORK without this part,and worked perfectly the minute I replaced it.

after pulling pins and installing new shocks, the washer still made loud ,disturbing sounds during use. Did some more investigating, turns out the inner bearings on the drum are bad. Apparently a problem with this model. Probably why the original shocks broke in the first place.

discovered broken left shock absorber when changing "coin-trap"

  • Customer: John from Napa CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

I followed instructions provided in the package of replacement shock absorbers with my own improvisation. The instructions state to use a 1/2" deep socket to release a locking tab on the nylon retaining bolt on each end of the OEM shock absorber. Use a 1/2" drive 1/2" deep socket to release the locking tab; remove the bit of the 6-way screwdriver and insert the open shank in the square 1/2" drive openning. With firm but steady pressure, push the nylon retaining bolt out. If the tub gives way to your pushing, firmly hold the retaining tab on the upper shock reataining assemby of the tub. Remove the broken shock absorber and ensure all pieces are out of the connecting points. Replace the broken shock. Insert the 2x4x12" block between the wash tub assembly and the front plate. Spread liberal amount of water soluble lubricant (KY Jelly) on the nylon retaining bolt and re-insert in corresponding holes from the rear and pushing firmly to the front. Wipe off excess lube. NOTE: The right shock absorber was not broken so I left it in place. The coin trap and drain pump must be removed to gain free access to the retaining bolts. I am assuming the replacement procedure will be similar.

Took bottom panel off and found the issue. Had to remove 2 plastic pins holding in the shock, which was a bit of a chore to get done given the space. Once removed, I popped in the new shock without incident and replaced the pins and lower panel. It took about 15 to 20mins given the struggle I had with one of the pins.

This repair was incredibly easy - I simply unscrewed the broken catch and installed the new one in its place, using the same screws. The entire process took about five minutes; the hardest part was finding a Phillips screwdriver in my house! Also, I commend Part Select for the prompt, courteous service. When I called, I was connected to an actual person - not a machine - who was very helpful, and the part arrived within 36 hours after the order, without any express mailing services.
