CustomerRobert from Webster Groves MO

During spin cycles, washer tub would bang against the sides of washer and "walk" the washer around.

Took the front panel off. The springs looked old, but not sprung. The reasonable cost of the parts and the video showing how easy it appeared to install new springs convinced me to try this myself. I am definitely not a handyman, so this was concerning. I unhooked the three springs in the front and replaced them fairly easily because they were accessible. Stretching the springs was quite a challenge. a vice-grip vs. a standard pliers is recommended. I learned from another testimonial on this site that tipping the washtub toward the springs when you try to reconnect them helped. GREAT TIP! The three springs in the back were only accessible via a small panel, making them more difficult to replace. I recommend you take the front springs off first, then the back ones, tip the tub toward the back to replace the back springs first, then go after the front three springs by pulling the tub forward. Having someone help with the tub will make this easier. (I didn't have that luxury.) My washing machine is not a "walking" machine any more. And no banging either!

Excessive banging, shaking in spin cycle

Followed the instructions given by robert from simpsonville SC. The only extra procedure I had to do was to put a block of wood under the tub to push the shaft up to reinstall the E-clip. This was not as difficult as I thought it would be.

Washer out of balance during the spin cycle

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.

CustomerCurt from Warner NH

Washer knocking and walking on spin cycle

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.
