What causes the drum to bounce around the casing while turning? It doesn't seem to be the bearing as it is making no noise at all. What keeps the drum in place so that it turns freely??
If the inner drum is bouncing inside the outer tub then it sounds like the spinner support has broken and you would need a new inner tub. The part number for the inner basket would be 131618500.
The boot spring came out of the washer. How do I get it back in?
Answer Hello Dan. Install the boot back onto the front lip of the front panel. Then start at the top of the boot and insert the spring 131277300 into the groove of the boot and work your way around the door boot with the spring down to the bottom. The spring is used to hold the boot into the front panel lip and keep it from coming off. These can be hard to re-install and you may need to use a small amount of liquid detergant to coat the spring for easier install.
