Noisey - squeling when wash cycle was running

The noise problem was a combination of the belt and the snubber Ring. The snubber ring was worn out and causing most of the noise. The belt was easy to put on...the snubber ring - not so much. Plan a couple of hours to disassemble the lower portion of the washer as the snubber ring lies at the bottom of the washer tub assembly but above all the pulleys, gears and the bottom/base plate of the wash machine. A nice surprise is the large spring that pops out when you open up the bottom plate. Re-compressing that spring takes a special tool or a creative way to get it all back together after the new snubber ring is installed. I used some temporary bolts and nuts in luau of the short 1/2" sheet metal screws to compress the spring and than replaced the bolts with the original sheet metal screws once the plate was close enough to use them. It was a major pain. No doubt the pros have a special tool that takes care of this problem. Good luck!

Washing machine walking during spin cycle

Looked up probable causes on PartSelect website. Determined that worn snubber ring and and weak springs were probable cause. Ordered parts on a Thursday. Parts arrived on following Monday.

Read several repair stories on the website. One story gave step-by-step instructions for disassembly. Very helpful since I followed this prescription. While waiting for delivery of the parts, I removed the tub and inverted it.

Removing springs was relatively easy. Did not remove snubber ring until new parts arrived, but replacing it was easy. I was very cautious about loosening the 6 screws and heeded the warning about the 200 pound spring under the cover.

Diagrams on website showing expanded mechanism of washing machine parts were very helpful for reassembly.

The most difficult part was installing the new springs, since they were quite strong. One repair story on the website suggested using coins to expand the new springs enough to be able to hook the springs into the upper slots and hangers.

I USED ONE OF THE MORE ACCESSIBLE LOCATIONS (AT THE REAR OF THE MACHINE) TO PREPARE EACH SPRING FOR INSTALLATION).

I hooked a spring in the bottom slot. I pushed a long heavy screwdriver through the spring's upper hook and the hole in the metal support and expanded the spring until I could insert 1/2-inch washers (about 8) between the rings. I prepared each spring this way for installation around the tub. With the washers in the expanded spring, it was relatively easy to use a pliers to lift the upper hook into the hole or hanger.

I decided to insert the spring next to the motor first since it was the more inaccessible. The remaining springs were installed relatively easily.

Reassembly was easy by following the reverse order of the disassembly instructions. I found the tub to be pretty heavy to lift, so when it came time to put it back into the frame, I turned the frame on it's side and inserted the tub from floor level.

I am very proficient mechanically but I believed I could make this repair without difficulty. I think that without the repair stories I had viewed on the website, it would have been more difficult. A spring tool would have been immeasurebly more helpful.
