The suspension is meant to support the outer tub and keeps the tub steady during loads that could cause an unbalance. If this part breaks, is worn down, or perhaps has stretched out and lost its spring, it could cause the load to be off-balance which can cause excessive shaking, moving, noise and possibly leaks. For this repair, you will need a 1/4 nut driver, a putty knife, a flat blade screw driver, and a pair of needle nose pliers. Disconnect the power supply, fill hoses, and drain hose to give you safe and easy access (have a container nearby for water left in drain hose). This item is sold individually.
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:

I just replaced the spring just like the vid show me.it run's like a new one-I bought it used about 5 yr's ago
I tried to remove the outer console to get to the tub wear pads easier. This proved difficult for me for some reason. So I tipped the machine on its back at about a 45 degree angle. You will see the tripod support holding up the tub. The pads lie in between the bottom of the tub and on top of the tripod support . You won't be able to see the pads since the are on the top of the support, but you will see the two insert tabs of each pad sticking out. There are about 120 degrees apart from each other. I pushed up on the tub and slipped the piece of wood in between the tub and tripod support close to the pad. Taking a screwdriver and hammer I punched out the wear pad insert tabs. You can replace the old pad with the new one by using some force with your hands. Some pop right in and some you need to use a little leverage, maybe with the piece of wood you used to hold up the tub. Be careful not to get the pads greasy, keep clean as possible. Worked great.
removed two phillips screws from control panel. lifted panel to reveal two clips on both sides of machine. used flathead screwdriver to remove clips. tilted whole body up and away. pushed drum towards first spring and removed it . installation was reverse of procedure. did not fix it because basket had rusted at shaft bottom under agitator and put basket out of balance.
I did the repairs after watching a few videos on this web site and it covered everything I needed. Went well and the parts were perfect.
Replaced all of the springs. I put the shell back on and the problem still exists. I thought $20.00 was worth seeing if this would resolve the issue. I don't want to keep throwing parts at it. I noticed some black suit under the machine. I will be buying a new washer.
This washer does not have a removable front panel, so the spring replacement was made from the bottom of the unit, with the washer lying down on its face. This put two of the springs in tension which had to be relieved by propping the tub. The springs had removable bottom clips which made the job much easier.
Pulled it apart,layed it down and looked at it,and chaned the 3 springs. And it is like new again. . . . .
I the took washer to where I could lay it on its side.Laying it on its side lets the suspension spring at the top go slack. Making pulling it from bracket easier.Next , I lifted the tub up with a 2x4 and blocked it with another wood block. This let me have slack in the lower springs.Of coarse I saved the hardest one (behind the motor) for last. I only swore a little! But got it to come out. By the way, put in each new spring, before going on to the next one.The new springs helped a lot, but I ended up ordering the wear pads a day or two later. They were very easy to replace. Just pop the old ones out of the frame with a screw driver. then pop the new ones back into the holes and you are done.You may just want to buy them both and do it all at once. Saving moving the washer twice!
After seeing video it was easy . Took everything apart tub,basket,replaced all springs. Tub wear pads. It took longer because I cleaned eveything,took my time. There was a lot of deposits on tub and outer tub also some rust . Put it all back together all nice and clean . pluged it in put it in spin cycle and the motor just hummed. I than check to see if somethig was stuck no .Pulled motor tested it with out a load and did not work. Motor start winding went. Motor died. 2n one in 7 years. So I fixed that proplem I am a new owner of a Speed Queen washer and dryer .
