Main sping wore through spring support bracket
In this model the 2 main springs hang from a bracket built into the top of the machines frame. For some reason one of the pring was installed without the protective plastic grommet (called the guide spring washer). The handened spring eventually wore through the softer metal bracket due to the vibration of the washer.
The purchsed plastic part fit into the bracket so firlmy that even with part of the bracket wore away it appears to be still strong wnough to support the weight of the tub. It has made it through 10 loads so far and it still working well.
Getting at the spring was easy but lifting the tub was heavy. Thanks - $4 part saved a $1000 washer.
