I removed front panel and found 1 centering spring had worn out and broke, down by the base of washer. The other 5 seem in good shape and I cannot see anything else that looks faulty or broken. Should I replace all 6 springs, and may as well replace belt since washer is about 5-6 years old. Anything else I should look at or look for? The spring just looks like it wore through until it snapped. Thank You
Answer Hello Erick,
Since the springs 21001598 have to apply equal pressure to hold the tub assembly centered, you will not be able to get a satisfactory result from replacing only one spring. The other thing to look for is the presence of any oil around the "dome" since this will cause erratic movements of the tub assembly during the high speed spin. The presence of oil is the indication of a bad lip seal 207843 in the transmission.
Washer will fill, then start to agitate then makes a sound like hitting the brakes, then buzzes
Answer Hello Ken. Listen and see if the unit roars during the spin cycle. If so, you have a bearing issue with the unit. If there is no roar, then you need to check and see if the motor is overheating. If so, you will need to order and replace the motor on the unit.
My washer drum bangs against the washer wall. I have replaced the suspension springs, but at times it continues to act like it is unbalanced. Why are there to pins in a plastice tube attached to the washer frame?
Answer Hello Jeff. Did you check all 4 springs? The large in the back and the 3 on the floater plate. As for the pins, the are only for shipping and do not affect the balance of the unit. You need to make sure the floater plate is centered on the unit as well.
