My washer started started making a loud banging noise when it was spinning fast. After taking a look inside I see that the drum is able to move around quit a bit in the washer, the bearings are fine though. The noise I was hearing is the drum slamming into the front of the washer. I noticed that the model only comes with 3 shocks, which is most likely the reason for failure. The side that has a single shock seems to be weak. Is it fine to install two shocks on this side so this doesn't happen again in another two years?
Your unit should have 4 shocks on it. There would be 2 in the front and 2 in the rear. If yours only has 3 then you would want to make sure that the 4th is put on.
