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.

If it fill and motor runs but will not agitate it likely is the coupler. If you have the cabinet off and see the motor here is what you do. there are 2 metal straps that attach the motor to the transmission. take the screws out that hold the straps on and pop the straps out of their slots. the motor will then come off and the coupler is between the motor and transmission. One section goes on motor shaft and one on the transmission shaft with rubber bushing in between. Coupler part number is 285753A
Sounds like you a broken coupler. This is what makes the washer spin. You can check this by leaning the machine back and feeling for a rubber coupler between the motor and transmission. if this part wiggles or is missing replace it, its broke. Another sign of it being broke is rubber under the machine when you tilt it back.
