Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. I could not cross the part number of the 3 plastic peices you mentioned but I am assuming your referring to the suspension pads.

Tub suspension pads:

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3094518

There are upper and lower pads. You may only have half of the solution in hand.

Here is a video made by the repair clinic that shows quite well how to do this.

Sometimes they say a picutre is worth a 1000 words. In this case it is true.

If you are still having difficulty or need more assistance just respond here and I will help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Machine goes out of balance & vibrates on spin cycle


Some models of top-load washers use tub dampening straps to cushion the movement of the tub during the spin cycle. There are four straps attached to the top of the tub and to each corner of the cabinet

Also There are four suspension rods that suspend the tub and allow the tub to free float. If the suspension rods are noisy, there will be a squeaking noise during wash. You can fix this by putting bearing (lithium base) grease in the cup that each rod rests in. If it continues to squeal replace all four rods the cups come with the rods, replace them as well.

If your washer has a loud banging noise during spin the balance weight may be loose. This weight is to counter act the weight of the motor so you will find the weight directly behind the motor. Sometimes simply tightening the bolts will fix your issue but if the bolts are stripped out get some bolts slightly longer than the original bolt to allow you to put a locking nut on the bottom side of the mounting plate. If the weight is broken replace it.

Lastly Washer vibration can be caused by a broken counter balance spring. Ur washer may be equipped with one or more counter balance springs which help to absorb the natural movement of the spinning tub. If a counter balance spring fails the tub might lean in one direction more than another and it will shake and cause vibration.

It sounds like your bearings are are whacked, if you have vertical
movement in the drum the bearings will need replacing , not a simple job as seals also need replacing

Tub during the spin


It sounds like it may be a worn drum bearing. A loose transmission bolt could also cause the problem.

Whirlpool duet mod#ghw9160pwo washer shakes the whole house during spin cycle. shocks look good, springs look good and adjustable feet are tight and on floor. the washer is level and i get no alarm...


Unit probably has bad main shaft and bearings. Worn bearings will cause excessive shaking on spin cycle. The shaft, bearings and seal will have to be replaced. Also if you grab the tub by the top and shake it up and down, it will have a little play in it. That will confirm bad tub shaft bearings. It's a pretty big job for a DIY.

Usually, washing machine comes with fixing bolts in the back (for transport only). Check it out if were removed before operating. Usually, there are 3 or 4 of them, with some coloured plastic washers. In the instruction manual also is a note about them.

Started normal cycle then gets to drain and spin clothes are still wet


Hello there:
Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt, a worn clutch , or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. then retry ok

Check base mount springs, there are 3 from base to tub and 1 from tub to back bottom for counter balancing. If all are ok then you will have a skid plate problem. Best to call for help.
