Question and Answers

Q:

I CAN NOT FIND LOCATION FOR PART FOR REASSEMBLY.

A:

Thank you for submitting your question. I understand your concern and I will be happy to assist you. Based on your description, the pin you're referring to was a shipping pin. When the washer is first installed a strap in attached and has to be pulled for the back of the washer, this removes the shipping pin that hold the transmission and tub secure during shipping. The pins will normally fall to the floor, sometimes they get hung up and will fall out during a repair. The image below will display the pin. If this is what you found, it has no further use and can be discarded as it is not reusable. I hope this helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

 Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If you have the spin basket centered on the drive block and you have leveled the washer by leaning the machine forwards and then letting the rear drop down about 1-2 inches to self-level the rear legs, then I would suspect the 6 friction pad may need to be replaced. Make sure there is no gear oil on the friction pads or oil on the painted metal surface of the skate plate or on the base assembly. I used to get a piece of fine sandpaper and scuff up the painted surface where the friction pads make contact with skate plate and tub support.

The gold metal pin(s) that you found is used for shipping only. The pins are supposed to drop out of the suspension/skate plate and base once the yellow shipping strap is pulled out. The pins were originally connected to the end of a strap that must be pulled out from the back of the washer to release the shipping pins which would  fall into little plastic cups to prevent them from falling on the floor. The older units did not have the cups and the pins would drop on the floor. If the shipping pins were left installed, the washer would walk and dance around during an off balanced load.

If the basket is sitting down on the drive block properly and the balance ring sitting on top of the spin basket has not lost any fluid, and it shakes too much with a balance load of clothes, it may need new friction pads. If the tub support/base is bent, it can also cause it shake and wobble. I added some images below that might be helpful. Note: The balance ring sitting on top of the spin basket will only be about half filled. The balance ring is sealed and the liquid should not ever leak unless it is cracked. You should hear the liquid slosh around when shaking the basket around if it's Okay.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thanks Joey for the feedback.. I looked at the washer and found the following: 1. The balance ring sees to have the fluid ok. 2. One friction pad came off of the base frame. would this make it wobble like crazy? 3. The skate/suspension plate is floating and is not attached with any fasteners. The diagram you sent indicates that this plate is attached? 4. The gold pin was probably in one of the platic cups

Jim: A missing or worn friction pad can cause it to shake. The skate plate is not fastened or secured on top of the base support, it slides on the set of 3 the friction pads fastened to the base. The skate/suspension plate is NOT fastened. It should move around freely.

Jim: I suggest ordering both sets, a set for the skate plate and a set for the base. The two sets are different and are not interchangeable.
