Hi Sleepy.
When you say "spring" are you talking about the small spring attached between the left-front shock rod and the small red tab on the tub rim, or are you talking about one of the tub support rods/shock absorbers? If it's the latter, it has probably broken and has to be replaced. What I usually see happen is that the rod pulls right out of the angular bracket that supports the rod. if the rod came undone it is very easy to re-install it, you hook the bottom round "bearing" onto the tub, lift the rod up and set the angled bracket back into the corner of the cabinet. if this angled bracket is still attached to the corner and you see a rod and spring, then you broke the shock rod. If this is the case, they are sold in sets of 4 and you can get them here:

Drum suspension failure


The suspension spring of the drum has come off and this means that the drum is hanging off the center.
The drum is hung with spring and shock absorbers and if one side has come off it will be off balanced. The springs are hung from the corners of the BODY FRAME. Check this out, replace spring if the end had broken or also you can use a good plier to extend the spring head to be clipped.( if broken)

My indesit washing machine wa135 makes extremely loud noise when spining


There are a couple of things that might explain this

1. The drum is suspended from 2 heavy duty springs that clip to the top of the chasis and onto loops moulded into the drum. (you will need to take the top off the machine to examine these). If you have had a very bad overload and a violent spin, a spring may have become dislodged. Provided that it has not damaged the locating lug on the drum, you should be able to re-attach it.

2. There is a possibility that one of the shock absorbers that steady the drum underneath have come undone. Pull the machine out and tip it backwards by 45 degrees, take a look underneath. You will see 2 shock absorber struts, mounted on each side of the base of the chassis, half way between back and front. These struts should be fixed to the base of the machine and to the drum on each side. If one has come adrift, you will get the effect that you describe.

3. I'm sorry to say that if the 2 possibilities above are not the cause, then the problem you describe is almost certainly down to the main bearings failing on the drum. If this is the case then the cost of repair may well outweigh the value of the machine. I have added some inormation about failed bearings below if this helps you. Please feel free to drop a comment on this thread if I can give you further assistance.

I have a GE electric dryer that the front plastic bearing is cracked and keeps catching items being dryed. The dryer was new in 1997 and I was wondering how to lift the top and get to this so-call bearing...


I worked on one yesterday.I opened the door as usual expecting to see some screws as pictured here:
themobilian_2525.jpg
That is the usual way to get the top up but the one yester day had spring clips like this on it:
themobilian_2526.jpg
Once the top is up you remove the screws and get the front off
themobilian_2527.jpg
That plastic bearing has 3 glides sometimes 4 the white piece called a
bearing is removable on top and easily replaced.
Since it is catching clothes I bet it needs replaced.
Go ahead and take the drum out and do a thorough cleaning.
I worte a tip about it and included photos HERE

Tub gets easily out of balance when washing towels or jeans.It pounds enough it walks across the floor


there are three or four balancing springs under the drum attached to the frame and drum carriage chances are that one of these springs has broken or come undone they only realy do alot during the spin cycle if you are ambitious turn off the water and unplug the washer pull the back off and have a look see underneath if you do find a broken spring with a pair of pliers bend a new loop in the spring and hook it back up Good Luck

How to take off brake drum


this can be a simple proceedure, after rmoving the wheel you will see either 1/2 really rusty screws on the face plate, these will be very dificult to remove so i would recommend an impact driver. then once you have the screws undone you will have to chock the wheels to stop the car rolling forward or backwards, after doing this i would reccomend that you put car into gear as added safety. once done then you can release the handbrake allowing you to evenly pull drum off. if you try to pull one side or the other you will find the springs on the pads will not allow you to remove it so gently does it im fraid. if any moer probs wityh this one please just ask.
