The snubber ring is a piece that is specific to your washing machine. The function of the snubber ring is to reduce noise and vibrations within your washer. It fits in between the leg and the dome assembly. If during your spin cycle you notice your washer jumping and making loud whirring noises, you may need to replace your snubber ring. The tools you will need for this repair include: a putty knife, a 5/16 nut driver, a 1/4 inch nut driver, a 3/8 socket and a ratchet, a small flat blade screwdriver, a pair of locking pliers, and a pair of slip joint pliers.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Did watch the belt video and that was real easy but removing the springs and snubber ring was pretty difficult until i finally had someone help me by holding the tub. was hard to figure out how to how to get at the various parts. Howeve the washing machine is running real well now and I should be able to get several more years out of it. Better instructions or a video would have helped. I had a terrible sewer odor when the washing machine was running. i thought it was a problem with my sewer lines or traps until I took off the drain hose, almost lost it. terrible odor. when I replaced the drain hose and cleaned up the machine, the odor was gone. Saved a lot of money in needless plumbing costs. Good luck.

open top,remove back panel.then laid on the side and removed belt.remove hose from tub to pump.removed small hose for fill level.Hard part was to remove springs from tub.Then pull tub and transmission out of housing.Remove pulley from shaft.Lossen screws around snubber ring but do not remove them.Remove old snubber ring.clean surfaces with alcohol.install new snubber ring and assemble in reverse order.
Had to change the drain pump, the bearing was shot and was the reason for the noise and the eventual stopping/belt breakage....Watch the video on this site for the drain pump procedure it's very helpful....The drain pump swap-out was very easy...Two hose clamps and three small bolts and it was done in no time..I changed out the snubber ring while I was in there... I used vise-grips to grab the the springs for removal/installation and lifted whe whole drum out....Just as others on here have suggested just loosen the retainer screws holding the old snubber ring just enough to slip it out and the new one in...It's really that easy...The toughest part is dealing with the springs and one piece of advice I can offer is to start with the hardest to reach first and save the easiest for last upon reassembly...Put it all back together and installed the new belt...DONE !!! Works like a champ !!!
With part select and their team of knowlege the hardest thing to do is stick your arm at bottom right of dryer and pull the pulley and put on belt, groove side down on the drum.there should be a wear mark where the old one rode,just line it up manually spinning the drum

I followed the instructions on this site. The only difference was I discovered that the bottom hole for the springs actually has 2 holes. The rectangular long one is for the spring to be inserted into. The small hole is for the end of the spring to pop up through. Making sure you do this makes it easier to hook the spring into the top spot.
1- Unplug unit 2-disconnect water hoses 3-put unit in open area so you can work on it. 4-Open top cover with screw driver 5-take off front cover with appropriate socket 6-lay unit on it back to get access to the drive belt (take off). And take off water hose with plyers. 7-With vise grips take off the six springs. 8-Take tub assy out,and lay it on the floor upside down. 9-Loosen the screws to take out the old snubber ring, note ( when lossening screws,keep your finger on the bottom of the screw ,so you can feel how far to back the screws out,just enough to have access to the snubber ring,to take out,and install new one. )Remember not to take screws out completely. The unit is under spring tension. 10-Put washer back together in reverse order,and problem solved!
Followed instructions and needed help lifting drum out but no problems. Parts fit perfect and unit is as smooth as new.
took drum out replase snubber put drum back in
watched youtube on how to change out the snubber ring. it was quite easy.
First of all..the helpful hints from all with the problem is appreciated..I had a problem stretching the spings to connect..but other than that..because I am a senior..it was kind of difficult moving the machine around....but it is done..and there is a difference..I thank you all for your help and info..
got the right part great service from partselect invited my bro in law 20 mins we where done.. no more violent shaking spin cycle thank you very much
After unplugging washing machine, I lifted the top to access two screws that held on front of machine. I removed the old springs with vise grips. I removed the two screws holding the motor to remove the drive belt then the drum could be lifted to replace the snubber. Drop the drum back down and tilt the machine back so the drive belt can be placed back on the drum, motor and water pump pulleys. Reinstall the motor screws. Install the new springs, this can be difficult, I used a board to stretch the springs. Put front back on and do your laundry.
found your web site and the helpful hints Thank you it works wonderful even washing heavy loads
