Question about Kenmore 44072 Front Load Washer
Actually got the new shock absorbers in the mail and noticed they don't come "pre loaded" or "extended". so i go to thinking they must not be true shock absorbers more so just "dampners".
after further review (and a with a mirror on the left side of the tub) I noticed a short, but beefy sized spring near the top of the tub that was connected to, what appears to be the framing inside the washer, but not connected to anything else. I'm assuming this spring is actually what holds the weight of the tub and the "shock absorbers" on the bottom only dampen the "motion".
SO, now my challenge is how to get inside and re-hook the currently "unemployed" spring on the left side. (which would explain why the tub 'hangs' to the right as the right spring must still be doing its job).
any ideas on how to remove the front panel on the machine without breaking every plastic tab that is holding it on??
or do i need to approach this issue from the rear?
