My Repair & Advice
First I unplugged the Frigidaire washing machine that I was going to work on from the outlet. I then taped the top of the top of the unit and pried the top open using a putty knife and a screwdriver. The next step was to take the front cover off of the unit. This was done by unscrewing the two Philips screws at the bottom of the cover, lifting it up and pulling it away from the unit. Then, with the assistance of my wife ( wedging the drum toward the spring to relieve tension ), I unfastened the spring from the base of the washing machine with a pair of pliers. I installed the plastic insert and reinstalled the spring using a Philips screwdriver, reinstalled the front cover, lowered the top and snapped the top in place. I then pulled the tape off of the top, plugged it into the outlet and tested the washer.
