HOW DO YOU GET TO THE SPRINGS FROM FRONT OR BACK WHICH IS EASIER
Answer Clark, The upper tub suspension springs (2) are replaced from or through the top of the washer :" To remove the top panel: Remove the 3 Phillips-head screws that attach the top cover, then pull the cover rearward. Note: It may be helpful to place a putty knife along
the top seam between the cover and control panel, then tap lightly rearward. Remove the 3 (7-mm) hex-head screws that attach the rear of the top panel to the cabinet." You'll find the springs attached to the cabinet top flange seated in a "plastic" insert, and attached to the outer tub assembly. Thanks and Good Luck
What's best way to lift tub up high enough to hook on new spring since spring hardly stretches and tub weighs a ton. Do I take front and rear tub counterweights off first? Do I replace both springs even though only one broke? Washer 4 years old exactly.
Answer Hello Ray. The best way to raise the tub high enough to hook the springs, is to stack a few 4x4's or 2x4's under the tub and let them support the weight of the tub. You will need someone to help you do this, but as you lift the tub, they can place the board under it and support the weight. This way you do not need to remove the counter weights off the unit. If one spring broke, it would be best to replace both springs WH05X10009 at the same time. Hope this helps.
