SOURCE: Washer off balance often.

They are drum stabilizer springs.
You can take the back off or look underneath.
If you turn it over, make sure all the water is drained out completely.
Any residual water can mess up your circuit board on the fascia panel.

Problem with Hamilton Beach Brewstation I have the water tank apart and I need to know how to put the spring and seal back in

I'll assume you have the pivoting arm with the rubber washer stopper apart. The rubber stopper pulls out of its housing. If you have that out you need to stuff it back in its hole with a small screwdriver. If not: the pivot for the arm rests in two grooves; the arm is held UP with a spring under the arm. (The top of the washer seals the dispensing hole from inside the pot.) The pot has an indentation the spring fits in, the arm also has a depression to hold the spring. It's tricky, but u can get everything lined up in order to put the holding plate (with the 2 screws) in place. (Hold the assembly in place with one finger and with the other hand put a finger thru the holding plate. Move the holding plate toward its final position and switch fingers holding the assembly in place. You're now holding the assembly with the finger that has the holding plate.) Position the holding plate and tighten the screws.

Harley davidson kickstand diagram

No diagram but could get one from Harley parts department or maybe this will help:

For removal block the motorcycle underneath the frame so both wheels are raised off the ground and then remove the cotter pin and washer from the pin and unhook the spring from the jiffy stand and anchor plate and pull the pin from between the frame tubes and then the jiffy stand and the pivot block will drop out together as one piece.
To reinstall the jiffy stand put the pivot block and jiffy the stand assembly between the frame tubes, install the pin through frame tubes and pivot block from the back towards the front and secure it with a new washer and cotter pin and then attach the spring to the anchor plate (the hook on spring will face up) and the jiffy stand. Ensure that the jiffy stand works properly before using it or relying on it to hold up the bike.

My machine wont always spin out

Most likely it is your motor slide plate that is your culprit. The motor in your washer is designed to pivot back and forth to apply tension on the belt and give you a good fast spin, or sturdy agitate mode. The centrifugal force of the motor operating is what makes it shift from one side to the other.
Unplug the washer..
To fix this you will need to first pop up the top of the washer. The entire top is designed to open like the hood on a car. Between the front panel and the top about 3 inches in from the left and the right sides you will see the face of a spring clip. You need to use a putty knife to depress the clips and lift the front edge of the top. swing the top all the way up and allow it to lean against the wall behind the washer. Be sure it is tipped back enough that it is not gonna swing forward and hit you.

Next you will find two 5/16" screws that hold the front panel in place one on the left side one on the right side. remove them and allow the top of the panel to come forward and lift it off it's retaining clips at the bottom, and set it aside.

Now in the front left corner you will see your motor. (again, make sure your washer is un-plugged)
You will see that the motor has two plastic bushings in the front that it rides on, make sure there is no rust on the plate that it rides on if there is, sand it down. Apply a liberal amount of grease to the oval cutouts the glides ride on. (Both top and bottom.)
Also grease the rear pivot slide at the back of the motor. you can manually move the motor back and forth to wee the way it adjusts and be sure it is moving freely.
Once you have greased everything, you should be good to go.
Good luck with this!!

Broken spring in pump model 580751500. how do I keep the piston pivot shoe in place while puting pump back together? Their's 3 shoes.

Not sure what you mean, but if you need to hold some parts in place while putting other things back, try this old trick. Use some thick water soluble grease to keep the parts "stuck" in place, it will wash away when the water goes through. I hate to say it, but K-Y jelly is one I have used in the past to do this same task, it is also good for lubricating o-rings when installing them in a water type environment.

New machine, foot peddle has part of spring

1 - Unplug the power from the wall.

You can remove the top of the foot control by CAREFULLY prying the top and bottom apart with a flat screw driver at the pivot point where they hinge. Once you have it open you can put the spring back where it goes and snap the top back on. Make sure you have first put the top and bottom together at the end opposite the hinge/pin end.

Replacing belt on maytag washer

Nothing to do but tip back the washer and reach under,grab the old belt and replace the new one. No tools needed because the motor pivots on springs.Check yor pulleys to see if any of them are stiff. This greatly increases the belt wear.

Off balance during spin cycle

I have a Performa Model PAV3200AWW that would go unbalanced every time it would go into a spin cycle. I found the problem to be a worn out snubber. This is a plastic ring that is at the pivot point for the whole tub. It separates the metal to metal contact at the bottom of the washer pivot point. The part is less than ten dollars, but it is a quit a job to replace. I had to remove the whole tub to replace mine, but it did solve the problem. If you see a lot of plastic shavings around the pivot point, then this could be your problem.
