I replaced pulley 7 mos ago and now have the same problem. Lots of noise on spin cycle and new pulley worn and loose. Do shocks need to be replaced?
Answer Jim, The "shocks" don't have much to do with worn out pulley or belts. They can make noise if they're dirty, worn, or loose, but you may want to start looking for a worn out tub bearing causing the noise and the loose pulley, and the inner tub to "wobble". Good Luck and Thanks
Sometimes my washer will not finish the cycle and blinks F02 on the displays. What does this mean?
Answer Hello Chris. Most of the time the F02 code is a long drain, and the drain pump is clogged and needs to be cleared out. If the drain pump is clear, replace the pump 280187. Hope this helps.
I had broken shock absorbers in the front of my machine. To ensure longevety of my machine I attempted to replace the rear absorbers too. Trying to get rear absorbers in seems impossible so I used a bolt to keep in place but the tub now sits too far back. Are there different shocks for the rear or any special instructions that are different for the rear shocks? Thank you.
Answer Michael, All four shocks are the same 8182703 to remove/replace the shocks "The tub is held in position by four shock absorbers,
two in front and two at the back. Each shock absorber can be disconnected from the tub by turning the top of the shock mount counter clockwise, 90°. The shock can be removed from the washer by turning the bottom shock mount counterclockwise, 90°. Remove the top end of the suspension springs from the hanger slot in the top cabinet frame. To release the spring at the right side of the cabinet, it may be necessary to remove the wiring harness retainer from the cabinet. * When reinstalling the tub, be sure to hook the springs into the holes towards the front of the tub as well as the front of the cabinet.* You probably have something out of alignment or jammed, holding the tub to the rear of the cabinet. Thanks and Good Luck
