Washing machine "Walks" due to vibration of drum in spin cycle
First, unplug the power cord to avoid electric shock!

Then:
1. Open the drawers in the sub-base, remove the screws on the left and right side rails, and remove the drawer.

2. Remove the three torx head screws along the bottom of the front cabinet cover and remove the cover.

NOTE: There are sharp metal edges exposed inside of the cabinet. A heavy long sleeve shirt and gloves are recomended when working in this area to prevent injury.


3. With a pair of pliers, grip the end of the front right shock absorber near the attachment point and rotate counter-clockwise. Repeat procedure at other end of shock absorber. (note: this may destroy the plastic end of the shock absorber, but you're going to replace it with a new one anyway.)

4. With the front shock absorber out of the way, you can now reach the rear shock absorber on the same side and repeat the removal procedure. (note: Be sure to take note of which end of the shock absorber is up and which end is down. This will be important when installing the new ones.)

5. Install the new rear shock absorber by first inserting the lower end into the slot in the base plate and rotating it 1/4 turn clockwise by hand. it should snap into place easily. Then insert the upper end into the plastic drum attachment point and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise.

6. Install the new front shock absorber by the same procedure, then procede to the left side shock absorbers using steps 3, 4, & 5.

Note: While the cabinet is open, now is a good time to clean out the pump strainer located front and center.

7. Re-install the front cabinet cover using the three torx head screws. (note: the machine will not operate without the cabinet cover in place.)

8. Adjust the leveling legs so that the machine is level and each leg supports an equal amount of the machine's weight.

9. Reinstall the sub-base drawer and plug in the power cord.
