I disconnected the water and the power first. I then removed the back of the machine. I also removed the 8 screws that hold the top and slid it forward to release it from the clips. I tilted the to up withour removing any wires. I then put a 2X4 accross the top and used #14 electrical wire to lift the drum up so I could attach the spring. It was easy to remove nad replace the shock absorbers once the release was pressed down on each pin. I did have to remove two screws that held a control panel top the base of the machine on the left lower corner. (looking from the back of the machine) to make it easier to remove and install that shock absorber. That part of the install was a breeze. The parts were all correct and arrived quickly.

the wash tub was loose and making noise and bouncing all over the place

we removed the back panel of the washing machine, removed the old pins to the shocks and re-installed the shocks and pins. one pin gave us a hard time but it eventually went back in. the job was not to bad to do and now the wash machine is so quiet we can't even tell that it is on : ) this is our second repair that we have done on it ourselves, the first time we had to install a new control unit and spring and that was fairly easy also. who needs to spend alot of money to get their appliances repaired, you can easily do it yourself and save some money, plus we ordered the parts online and received them in about 2 days

The machine had the vibration for sometime but still worked so we left it alone until it stopped working. After some trouble shooting I discoverd 1. both lower shocks were broken off and the tub had hit the controller connector on the front right side so hard it had come loose. After plugging it back the washer worked again so I ordered the shock absorber kit from part select. I was able to install it by only removing the front lower cover. The pins took some effort to push back in but the parts fit perfectly and we are back in business. I had to use a large set of channel locks to force the pins back in as well as tapping them with a hammer.

My washer was leaking a bit on the left side, apparently from the place water enters from filler. I spent a bit of time inspecting that side of the thing and my jaw dropped when I finally saw the other side of the washer, the upper shock was broken off and the thing was not connected.

I got my parts fast and removing the pins was a bit troublesome but some from access standpoint, but it wasn't hard - just took some extra effort and prying from the head side. Seems to run better with new shocks and no more leaking so far.

It took more time to remove the screws on the back panel..
remove back panel for better access..
remove speed access box on lower left side ( 2 screws) to get access to nylon pegs, squeeze down on tabs and pull out . the little tabs are on the oppsite side of the split nylon...
Replace shocks and nylon pegs..
reattach speed access box.
put the back on.....
easy job, the new shocks are part metal, make sure the metal side of shocks go towards the tub...

Assumed this 12 year old washer was broken beyond repair so went to Lowe's and paid $880 for a new one. Out of curiosity, I removed the back and the lower front panel from the old washer to see why it would not work and found the two shock absorbers were both broken. I ordered new ones and it took me 15 minutes with a pair of pliers and a small hammer to replace the shocks. The washer now works perfectly again and I could have saved $880! Goodwill is going to get lucky on this one!

I followed the instructions that came with the parts. I used a regular socket to remove the pins instead of the deep well socket recommended, because I didn't take the machine completely apart. and the space wasn't enough for the deep well sockets. It worked perfectly. After I got the pins removed, then oriented the absorbers correctly and pushed and pulled the pins back in place and it was done.

Watched video on-online when I ordered the parts. The video showed the left side shock replacement and it looked very easy, however; the right side require a little more work due to the motors and electrical box that had to be moved before I could remove the shock pins. I layed the washing machine on its back and removed the broken shocks and put the bottom pins back in on each schock and then stood the machine back up right; took the back panel off so I could replace the upper pins on both sides with ease. I then went to the front and re-attached all the hoses, clamps, and electrical box. Before I replace the front panel, I took a 1/4 socket and wratchet and leveled the machine in its perminent place by adjusting the four feet by reaching into the machine with the 1/4 inch socket and wratchet and adjusting the feet one by one until level.

The pump was no problem, 2 screws, 2 hose clamps and 1 wire loom to change. All easy the shock absorbers were back mid washer the left was as the on line instruction stated but the right shock the instructions stated thatyou need the remove the air gap hose but you still could not even get a tool back to get the upper shock pin out much less put it back in. I ended up removing the pump intake boot off to gain acess to the area it only took one more hose clamp. This worked out well as the boot has a built in well to catch items left in pockets. This was emptied while it was out. All in all I was pleased
