Product Description

Shock Absorber Kit Specifications

This shock absorber kit is an authentic OEM part that is sourced directly from the manufacturer. The kit includes two dual-stage shock absorbers, one spare shock mounting pin, and four locking nuts. These shock absorbers keep your front-load washer from shaking vigorously by absorbing and reducing vibrations from the wash and spin cycles of your appliance. This kit comes with two shock absorbers because it is recommended to replace both at the same time, as they wear at the same rate. To access your washer shock absorbers, simply remove the lower access panel after disconnecting the power to the appliance.

Spring broke and front loading washer made loud noise when it went into spin cycle.
Removed the back and lower panel in the front of machine. Turned it on its side to replace spring, not tools required. Then stood it up and replaced both shocks by removing plastic pins that hold them in place, no tools required. The only time you need tools is to remove the metal panels to get to the parts. Now it makes no noise and runs like a new washer. Paid $140 for the parts, a new machine would have cost over a thousand and would be one of those digital nightmares that don't last as long. This machine is 18 years old.

Totally bad shocks repair
The video was most helpful, and the left shock replacement went as shown. The sucker punch was getting to the right shock - much harder.
First notice video has washer on a stand. How nice to have had it up on a table. LOL As it was I tilted the machine back with a 6 inch block under the front. Still a bear to get to the shock, but w/ patience, doable even though you are flat out on the floor.
The old shocks were so bad that the pistons fell out once it was removed.
It takes some strength to get the pins through the new shocks, and as I have a weak left hand I had to resort to using a C-clamp to help. If I could have gotten my right hand in there I may not have needed it. Right hand did have to hold the clamp as it had to just catch the side of the pin hole since the pin is pointed and sticks out past the mounting bracket when seated.
I also ordered a spring but they both were still good.

bad shocks
The instructions that come with parts say to pull pins out with pliers. not much room to do that. I used hammers and punches where I had access and prybars nail puller an hammer to offset where the water outlet was in the way. I used a short handle hammer to install three of the pins. The third I used a prybar and spacer blocks.

Drum shock absorbers were broken
Pulled the locking pins out, replaced the shock absorbers and re-installed the locking pins. I used Channel Lock pliers to remove and replace the locking pins. i used a deep socket to hold down the tab on the locking pins so they could be pushed out. The new shock absorbers came with installation instructions.

The only problem was that the drive belt was so tight that it was two inches short from the drive shaft making it very difficult to put on by hand.
I did my best to stretch the belt out and as I wrapped it around the pulley one hand was preventing the belt from slipping off and the other hand had the screwdriver to use as Leverage to stretch and slip the belt on the other side of the pulley. One thing that I saw but didn't try was to use zip ties to temporarily hold the belt in place so it didn't slip off that may have helped.

broken shock absorbers
Remove front panel to expose shocks. It took some time to remove the old shocks, both were broken. The pins were somewhat difficult to reach and remove, especially the one on right for it was shoved up against the electric wiring box. We ended up putting that pin in backwards for the new shock because it was impossible to reach from rear. Putting the new shocks was easy it was removing the old ones that took most of the time. The washing machine is working perfectly now.

off balance and walking
the work is simple, its getting it done. The pins that hold the shocks in are very hard to get to and no room to swing a hammer. I had to use a C- clamp on the left upper in and it was no picnic. The washer in the video was a little different than mine.

Tub was rocking a lot on spin
The replacement of the Shock Absorber Kit was hampered on the right side by a metal box that was mounted just a little shorter than the bottom plastic pin. the deadblow hammer with the dowel worked with all the pins including the impeded pin and the top right pin which had to be removed at an angle. The replacement did not repair the washer - it is the tub bearing which went in a previous washer of a similar model about 4 years ago.

Thumping vibration on spin cycle
Remove the front lower panel. Remove the 4 plastic pins mounting the shocks using 1/2 inch short socket to hold the detent down as per included instructions. All plastic pins were stuck in place so used needle nose pliers to pull or push out. Lube the pins with grease before reinstall to help them go through the new shocks. Use the included lock nuts to lock the four legs in place as low as possible. Start the washer and level each leg while running so you can tell if the vibration is going away. Tedious method but worked.

When my washer is in the spin cycle, it makes noise, real hard knocking noise, very loud.
For model number FTF530ES0
PartSelect logo
Hello Gary, thank you for contacting us. Yes, if you are hearing loud banging noises during spin that could be the shock absorbers. The kit includes two dual-stage shock absorbers, one spare shock mounting pin, and four locking nuts. These shock absorbers keep your washer from shaking vigorously by absorbing and reducing vibrations from the wash and spin cycles of your appliance. Hope this helps!

Very,very noisy on the spin cycle. Would changing the shocks work or is it something else like bearing
For model number fafw3511kw
PartSelect logo
Hello Frank, thank you for your question. If the noise is only on the spin cycle and sounds like an airplane taking off the issue is probably the tub bearing. If the shock absorbers were bad, it would be a sound more like a banging, or knocking and the tub would be unbalanced and the unit would shake quite a bit. Unfortunately, the bearing is only available with the outer tub assembly, and the manufacturer has discontinued that part. It is no longer available. I hope this information helps!

Washer shakes a lot but it does it mostly in the rinse cycle not that bad in the spin cycle would new shock absorbers fix problem
For model number LTF2940ES0
PartSelect logo
Hello Wayne, thank you for your question. Yes, the Shock Absorber Kit Part Number: 5304485917 should be replaced to fix this issue. It may be a good idea to check the Suspension Spring Part Number: 134362800 on the unit to see if they are worn as well. I hope this helps!

Goes through wash cycle then stops and shuts off.
For model number FTF530FS3
PartSelect logo
Hi Gregory, Thank you for the question. This issue can be caused by the Timer not going through to the next cycle, or the Door Lock and Switch Assembly. There is a spin enable switch that has to be activated in the lock assembly and if this fails it will require the lock assembly to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Installation video for the shock absorbers says to have metal end on top and the shoulder side of bushing in back. I guess, then, that there is a left and a right shock absorber?

My washer made a big bang...and now the washer vibrates during the spin cycle...i took the pins out to check the shocks and the pins have a crack the length of the pin... is this normal...also how do i know the shock are bad they have a little resistance...or is something else
For model number FWT645RHS0
PartSelect logo
Hi Dan, Thank you for your question. If the washer is making a loud noise in the spin cycle, the clutch assembly might be worn out. The clutch assembly makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. Also, it sounds like you will need to replace the shocks and the pins as well. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Hello Sherrie, Thank you for the question. The most common issue with this type of noise is the Drain Pump, PartSelect Number PS7783938. I suggest removing the pump and checking it for damage. Hope this helps!

My Kenmore front loader was new in 2005, has seen very little use, and was in storage for about seven years while I was stationed overseas. All five (two lower, three upper) drum supports were installed while it was in storage. The washer was just returned to service and seems to be working fine, except that it does not seem to be coming up to full speed during final spin. The bearing seems to be fine as it is not noisy and the drum rotates easily. Do the struts go bad with age? I am thinking I should replace them. What about the springs? How much vertical drum movement is normal for a final spin? I am seeing perhaps an inch of vertical movement at the base of the drum during final spin (front lower panel removed). Chassis is level and on a sturdy support. Any advice would be most appreciated. Thank you!
For model number 41744042400
PartSelect logo
Hello Peter, Thank you for the question. unless the springs and struts show visible wear they would be fine. This sounds more like an electrical issue with the motor, PartSelect Number PS1990829or an issue with the belt,PartSelect Number: PS419285. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

I have a Frigidaire front load washer in which i found both shock absorbers were old and broken and i replaced with the part 5304485917, but that did not fix the problem. The original shock absorber's (131268200) were not dual stage, but this replacement part is? Do you carry non dual stage shock absorber's that would fit? Thanks.
