I see three slots for tension springs on the motor mount. There are only two springs. Should there be three springs? Is there any way to adjust belt tension as the mount seems to be back all the way and the belts are loose. Belts are 17 years old...so probably due.
Answer Carl, There are only two(2)motor tension springs used on the motor carriage 205000. The springs should be installed in the two outer positions of the carriage openings. When you remove both belts, you want to make sure the carriage and carriage rollers/slides move freely back and forth, you may have to lubricate the rollers and carriage with some silicone grease. Yes you are about due for a new set of belts 12112425 To adjust the belt tension, Install both belts on the pulleys, "pinch" the pump belt together in the center until they touch, and the motor does not move forward. To make adjustments if needed loosen the three drain pump mounting screws, slightly. slide the pump to the right, hold the motor in position and pinch the belt together, the pump should slide to the left, then tighten the pump screws, this process will adjust the belts to the proper tension per the factory specifications.

The plate where the legs for balancing the washer is stripped. What do I need to replace it?
Answer Hello Arnoldo. You will need to order the base 22002150 to replace where the legs screw into the unit. You will need to remove everything from the unit, including the tub assembly, motor, pump, cabinet and hoses. Then you can replace the base. Hope this helps.
Motor shaft is hitting the inside of its slot when the washer goes into a spin cycle. The belts are both falling apart so I know they need replaced and the springs look fine. Coudl the square bushings be bad? Or the whole mount. Is there a stop to keep it from going to far forward?
Answer Hi Barry. You will be better to replace the motor mount kit part # 205999. It comes with the new springs ,glides, and lube. The belt kit is part # 12112425. Lastly, Keep motor tension and adjust the pump (side to side) To have a 1/4-to-1/2" tension gap in the belts not touching. Pump mount screw are 5/16" . Thank You.
