Replaced water in-flow valve it's fixed! Removing the washer case to replace the part would have been the most painful job of all. I used dremel cutter to cut a hole in the back panel to access to the valve rather than trying to figure out how to remove the washer case! It works fine! Part was delivered in time. Thanks!

The repair was very simple. We got the part faster than we thought we would had our son hold the washer on a tilt and put on the drive belt, took 2 times because it was twisted but we got on. The washer is much quieter and it was worth the shipping fee.

I used Utube to search for Performa Washing machine jumping around. You will find several videos that will be extreamly helpful in understanding exactly how to go about changing the sunbber ring. The snubber ring is fairly easy to change out. Quarters were used to hold the springs apart so they can be removed. Push the tub forward and away from the spring you want to remove. Install several quarters in the spring. Use as many as you can get in. Then pull the tub toward you and the spring can be removed from the tub. There are six springs to remove. I just left them laying in place at the bottom of the washing machine base. There are videos on utube also of using the quarters to remove the springs. Of course if you have spring removal tool for this purpose so much the better. I didn't have one. Good luck with your install. MB in TN

Used the testimonial found on your web site. Pulled off top flipped machine on its back removed springs from tub. Once tub removed loosened square drive nuts part way until snubber ring could be removed. Installed new ring and reassembled. To install agitator be removing bolt inside broken agitator auger. Easy to do saved alot of $$$ by doing myself. Thanks!!
