CustomerJeffrey from Ledyard CT

Loud operation, no high speed spin, drum off center

First disconnected power. MY dryer was stacked so I removed the dryer. Removed lower front access cover screws and removed cover. With the dryer (or washer top cover removed) you have easy access to the two support springs. Each is held in place with a retainer that requires 2 screws to be removed. Have someone lift the drum from below through the lower access cover and have the person on top remove the damaged spring. Take the new spring and glue the plastic end hook protectors in place using crazy glue (the glue provided was dried out). Slip the large end hook into the hole on the drum and then hook the smaller end onto the washer frame at the top. Replace the spring retainer and reassemble the cover or dryer. Reconnect power and all should work just fine. Note: the shock absorber at the bottom of the drum may also need replacing at this time. The originals seem to be a poor design and the new replacement versions are much more robust.

Broken tub spring

unplug power, remove top four screws, remove spring hold down clamps two screws each side, remove broken spring. install new spring (one end is bigger then the other) bigger end on tub, use string to lift spring into place, replace top all done. (tip use a string to pull tub spring into place much faster then trying with pliers just run string through hole where spring mounts and lift into place) All done.
