How many springs should be in the washer. I just took the top off and there are zero springs. I know there should be two on the right side, but should i get a second pack for the left side as well since there are 4 stabilizing rods?
For model number W10400895
Hi Melissa, Thank you for your question. Your washer only uses 2 tub centering springs to secure it. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

I asked a question the other day and i did get an answer but i think there was some misunderstanding. I ordered part #w10400895. These are the tub centering springs. They are two small springs and each one gets attached from the top of the tub and then gets attached to the suspension rods. They are located on the right side of the machine. On the left side of the machine there are two more places for two more springs, but there are no springs here. Are there typically only two tub centering springs or are there supposed to be four? I did order four springs and if i do attach all four will this help or cause a problem? Thank you for your time.
For model number ATW4675YQ0

Is there a video on how to replace springs
Hello Theresa, Thank you for the question. We do not currently have a video for these springs. We do have one for the bottom suspension springs. In the video it will show how to open up the cabinet, Once the cabinet is open you can see where the springs are installed onto the sides of the tub. When you expose the top of the tub you will see the spots where the springs connect to the tub and then to the rods. Hope this helps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjtNS0a0oEI&t=4s

Where are the tub centering springs located on the washer
For model number MVWC200XW2
Hello Paula, Thank you for the question. The tub centering springs are at the top of the outer tub. There is a spot to connect the spring to the tub and then they hook onto the rods. Hope this helps!

Cannot wash any clothes without washer clanging and banging like crazy. I have 2 of these springs with both of them located on the rear right & front right of the machine. Why aren’t they on either side of the tub???
For model number NTW4501XQ0
Hello Samantha, thank you for writing. There are only two springs on the unit. We would recommend checking the suspension springs, drive block, and tub bearing. You may also want to check the Thrust Spacer and drive pulley. I hope this helps!

My washer shakes sometimes when spinning not all the time. I looked at your online print and saw it had a suspension kit and centering springs. The suspension rods and springs seem fine but there are no springs. Is this normal for this model or should i install two centering springs ?
For model number WTW4910XQ1
Hello Gary, Thank you for the question. The springs may have broke off. They are required and we recommend having them replaced. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

Washer shook violently during spin cycle
Raise top cover, remove tub ring.
Remove suspension rods one at a time by pulling the
rods upward, remove keepers at top,pulled rods out the bottom by tilting washer. Replaced all four rods and installed load centering springs which hadn't been installed from factory. Took 1/2 hour and works like a new one??

Washer was out of balance on spin cycle
I do not know much about washer repair and after watching how to replace the suspension rods I decided it was not as difficult as I thought. I replaced the suspension rods and springs and that fixed the problem. The price for parts was reasonable and I received my parts in 2 days.
