CustomerAnnie from Haines, OR

Washer moving 3 ft during the spin cycle sounding like elephants running through the house

Removed back panel to remove tub from shell. Unscrewed the brackets holding the springs. Used screw driver to pop out pads with hammer onto screw driver. Cleaned out tub and put grease on springs where they attach to bracket. Replaced panel and ran machine to find a leak. Took machine apart again to find the knocking of the tub against the back panel caused a whole in the plastic tub. Silicon and mechanical tape. Washer works fine for now.

CustomerJames from Nelsonville, OH

Tub did not center and seal was hanging out of tub

Laid washer on front side and removed top spring, then lifted the tub assembly to replace the right side spring, the one behind the motor was the hardest, I lifted the tub then removed the spring bracket at the tub with pliers and a socket. The top seal all I had to do was take the 4 screws that hold the top on (it takes a long extension) then sit it bak up and I lifted the top up to give me enough room to unsnap the top piece of the tub, cleaned it up put seal in. The parts fit perfitlt and real fast shipping, I bookmarked the site and will buy from again. JIM

Washer shakes violently in spin cycle

It took a lot of surfing the internet to find good web sites for information. One was part select . I removed the cabinet from the washing machine per instructions. Then I replaced the suspension springs. That was easy. Took about 10 minutes. However, it didn't fix the problem. So I decided to replace all the suspension pads without a total tearing down the unit. It was almost impossible to put the new ones in because they don't press in easily. One other thing, there are plastic cups with pins in them that look like they are missing cotter pins. After hours of searching. I found partselect.com
THESE ARE THE SHIPPING PINS THAT KEPT THE MACHINE FROM MOVING AROUND DURING SHIPPING. THEY TOOK THE COTTER PINS OUT AFTER SHIPPING. THEY ARE NO LONGER NEEDED. My story ends here because my machine is still shakes violently. I have offered my washing machine for parts on our local freecycle website so as to keep it out of the landfill.
