Broken Spring/Shock for my GLEQ642AS0 Fridigaire Dryer

I am trying to find a replacement spring/shock for my dryer but I don't the part number. This spring is the one that is hooking onto the dryer drum to the frame. There are I think 4 on top and 4 on bottom suspending the dryer drum to the frame of the dryer. The spring is about 8 inches long and 3/4" in diameter made of heavy gauge steel. I substituted it with a spring of the same size from Home Depot (not made for dryers) but it only lasted a year. I would rather get an OEM part so that it won't break so quickly. Any idea what the part number is and where to buy one? Thanks in advance.

How do i change shock absorbere


Washer suspension systems can be fairly simple or quite complex and sometimes there is a failure due to the metal the suspension hooks or bolts onto has suffered fatigue and broken - sometimes a welding job is needed.

I have limited experience but the machines I have seen the main spring/shock units are accessible from underneath and it is necessary to turn the machine upside down (or lift it and work underneath).
The upper units (springs) are accessible from the top after removing the top cover.

Replace Belt


  • Unplug the dryer from the electrical outlet to prevent accidental shock which could result in death.
  • Locate the two screws on the bottom base of the front of the dryer by tilting the dryer unit slightly up and unscrew the screws on both the right and left side of the dryer, and put the screws to the side. Some units will have spring clips on each the right and left side. Insert a putty knife and press back against the spring clip releasing it from its hole.
  • Pull the bottom panel off and set it to the side.

    Excessive noise


    I had the same problem. Two things were bad. One was the shock absorber and must be changed out as a pair. Also one of the springs that supports the tub was broken. My guess is that the spring broke and the shock failed shortly after. since it was more easily accessible and appeared to be the problem, I replaced the broken shock. Only to find the spring was broken too. After replacing the spring, its worked fine for a couple of years. Obviously I'm looking at this site because I'm having another problem, but this time I think it is the tub bearing.
