This part fixes the following symptoms:
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.
Took the whole machine apart tipped tub upside down to put on snubber ring. One person had to hold down very very firmly to the metal ring that fits on top of the snubber ring while another person quickly screwed in the screws to hold it down.The springs required an extra strong person and a few words of frustration to stretch to get them on. My son who is 39 years old did it. My 60 year old husband would not have had the strength to stretch the springs.So far it works great. My son washed his carheart jumpsuit and coat with not a sound or wiggle. Your trouble shooting site was what made us decide to order what we did because of the percentages of what the problem was beside each part. Thank you for being so prompt in sending our parts.They came so quickly we weren't without a washer but maybe a day or two.

removed old springs and inserted 6 new springs and works like a new machine
Removed the front panel of the washing machine with a putty knife and socket. Used pliers to lift off the old springs starting in the front and moving to the back. Used pliers to lift on new springs starting with the more difficult to reach ones in the back and worked towards the front. Replaced front panel. Removing and installing the springs was difficult because most of the springs are difficult to reach making it difficult to get enough leverage to stretch the springs.
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.
one person on each end of rod spring hook on center of rod one person on each end lifting rod with spring hook to required hole.
I found white shavings under the washer. Removed the front and back cover. Folded the top section back. Removed the drive belt. Removed the 6 suspension springs. Disconnected the drain hose from the tub. Lifted the tub assembly out of the base and replaced the snubber ring. Replaced the 6 suspension springs. Everything is working great now.
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.
Followed instructions and needed help lifting drum out but no problems. Parts fit perfect and unit is as smooth as new.
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..
