Question about Washing Machines
I replaced the transmission and reassembled the washer exactly as I took it apart -- or so I thought. Now, the frame assembly which the motor/transmission attaches to (and, therefore, the tubs) lean to the front and right of the machine (looking at it from the front of the machine). It is as if the motor is weighing it down in those directions. Consequently, when reassembled, the tub is out of allignment and wobbles.
All the springs are in their proper place/allignment -- I think. I did not have the frame assemblies apart or off the machine.
Urgent help/advice/diagram needed as we have been without a washer for two weeks now and our family of six is losing friends from the aroma!
Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.
Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.
Replace/repair as necessary.
