Question about KitchenAid Washing Machines

1 Answer

I had an approximately 5-6 " spring broken off. I bought a replacement but have not been able to find out from where to where does this spribg hooks up. I understand it is called a counter balance springs and it comes in a package of 3 clored springs green, blue and silver and should match the motor label color. I have not been able to locate any literature or picture that shows where this springs is suppose to go.

    Model Number is KAWS850LQO. The spring shown on the video you sent me are the heavy duty support springs and there are three of them. The spring I'm refering to is not so heavy duty and is the only one. One side has a short hook and the other side has a 4 to 5 inch long straight wire with the hook at the end. It was broken when I took the washer appart and at the bottom so I have no idea where it came from. I think it is called a counter balance spring.
    Thanks,
    Carlos

    This is great. I wish I would have known about this service last year when I had to pay $165.00 for a Sears tech to come to my house to replace the suspention springs that I had bought already because I did not knoe w\how to take the machine apart. Great service for the DIY home tech.
    Dave your second video was right on and answered my question.
    Thanks a million.

Shifter lever won't return to the " center " position always. The problem is intermittent and seems to occur more in the heat. I've heard there may be something binding the mechanism....


Follow the shifter reach rod that runs from the shift lever back to a short lever on the transmission. Take the nut off and take the rod loose from this short lever. Then, move the forward like you are going to shift into low gear but don't actually shift the transmission into gear. Feel for the spring tension. Then, move the lever backwards and feel for the spring tension there. Check the shift lever and the reach rod for binding. If you don't feel the spring tension trying to return the lever back to the center, it's likely that the shifter pawl return spring is broken. This spring is what returns the shifter lever back to 'center". But,the temperature of the transmission will not change this. If the spring is broken, it's broken cold or hot. If the spring is good and there is not bind in the linkage, the problem may be in the shifter cam mechanism inside the transmission. Either way, this is an internal issue in the transmission.

Good Luck

Hi, I've got a broken spring bar on my Tissot PRC 200 and would like to replace it. I understand that it has got a lug width of 19mm. Does that mean I should buy a 19mm spring bar, or should it be a...


Two of the spring-bars broke on the clasp of my PRS200, so I took it to an un-named watch repair shop that was closer than the Tissot-authorized store (Leslie Gold Watch Co.) at which I bought the item 5 years prior. After the repair, the clasp kept popping off, so I took it to the Tissot store, and they told me that it was because the ends of the bars didn't fit properly. They replaced the faulty bars for me at no cost, and the watch has been sitting on my wrist fine for the last year-and-a-half.

Underwood no. 5 typewriter doesn't advance when hit keys


the cord is shaped much like a shoe lace, and these make great replacements, a spare clip can be fashioned out of a paper clip, it's not a precision part. the spring if broken can be replaced with any clock style spring, i bought a wind up kitchen timer at the dollar store (same for the shoe lace) and took the spring from that. for $2.14, got mine working good as new
