    I have the exact same Frigidaire gallery washing machine as in the video on how to replace the shocks. I checked and both shocks are broken off at the top. What I'm wondering is, if both are snapped off could there be an underlying cause like a bearing or other part that also needs replacement along with the shocks being replaced.
    Hi Rex, Thank you for your question. Over time, through repeated use, the shock absorbers can wear out or become damaged. When shock absorbers weaken or become damaged, unbalanced loads will cause the washer to shake or move and the machine will often make a loud banging sound during the spin cycle. If the symptom is not corrected, it can lead to damage of other components. Inspect the shocks for signs of broken attachments, leaked fluids or a weakened dampening action and replace both shocks if worn. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

        broken shock absorber
        after pulling pins and installing new shocks, the washer still made loud ,disturbing sounds during use. Did some more investigating, turns out the inner bearings on the drum are bad. Apparently a problem with this model. Probably why the original shocks broke in the first place.

        discovered broken left shock absorber when changing "coin-trap"
        I followed instructions provided in the package of replacement shock absorbers with my own improvisation. The instructions state to use a 1/2" deep socket to release a locking tab on the nylon retaining bolt on each end of the OEM shock absorber. Use a 1/2" drive 1/2" deep socket to release the locking tab; remove the bit of the 6-way screwdriver and insert the open shank in the square 1/2" drive openning. With firm but steady pressure, push the nylon retaining bolt out. If the tub gives way to your pushing, firmly hold the retaining tab on the upper shock reataining assemby of the tub. Remove the broken shock absorber and ensure all pieces are out of the connecting points. Replace the broken shock. Insert the 2x4x12" block between the wash tub assembly and the front plate. Spread liberal amount of water soluble lubricant (KY Jelly) on the nylon retaining bolt and re-insert in corresponding holes from the rear and pushing firmly to the front. Wipe off excess lube. NOTE: The right shock absorber was not broken so I left it in place. The coin trap and drain pump must be removed to gain free access to the retaining bolts. I am assuming the replacement procedure will be similar.

        Broken Tub level-shock
        Took bottom panel off and found the issue. Had to remove 2 plastic pins holding in the shock, which was a bit of a chore to get done given the space. Once removed, I popped in the new shock without incident and replaced the pins and lower panel. It took about 15 to 20mins given the struggle I had with one of the pins.

        Getting to the area of /for installing was a nightmare I removed the front lower panel only, dur to ther fact that the washer was in a confined area and could not move it out or around. I took your suggestion and used 2x34 short pieces to raise up the front end/side to make it a bit easier, I though
        actual exchange of shocks went well. Perfect fits and easy to install.
