Product Description

Suspension Rod and Spring Specifications

This part is the replacement suspension rod and spring assembly for your washer. The rod is approximately 27 inches long and is sold individually. The suspension rod and spring works something like a shock absorber and prevents the washer tub from shaking too much while the washer is operating. If you notice excessive shaking or vibrating, or if you notice a strange sound while the washer is running, you may need to replace the suspension rod and spring assembly. This is an OEM part sourced directly from the manufacturer.

    Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
    a small metal washer came off putting the machines weight on a plastic piece that shattered
    first use a puddy knife to remove the front cover – slide the puddy knife in the front upper left than right corners where the top meets the front of your washer they are push in clips that hold the front cover (they are not easy to damage)
    second pull the front out than up of the bottom clips, there is the rods with a tube assembly is either black or yellow that hold the tub up
    remove the 2 screws holding the top they are near the clips you used the puddy knife on
    lift the lid about 4 inches and you will see how it works, at that point with the replacement part in hand it is self obvious what to do replace the rod.
    When done try the washer and if it works, if so put the covers back on.
    The shock of it all is watching the natural violence your machine goes through just to wash your clothes
