Hitchhiker, you don't have to remove the front of the washer. The original boot was glued in areas around the door. They came out with a new design because of water leakage on the bottom. The new kit, part number 5303937187 comes with a spring that holds it on to the panel. You can do one or two things, if you don't have the leaking problem, glue the boot back on. Or you can order the new kit, it comes with instructions and replace the whole boot. Check it out, it might be covered under service flash #26-758BR. In any event this job can be done by leaning the washer back against the wall to make room between the tub and front panel. You are going to need an assist, it's better with 2 people. Catriver...post back.

Can't tell you about your particular model, just some generalities:
Unless the shock actually failed from a defect, you might have broken or damaged something else. Check especially for wires or other parts pinched between the tub and other parts or the housing. Also, make sure the tub shaft hasn't broken or worn the seal at the rear or the seal at the front. If this unit has ballasts one of them may have broken or broken loose to cause the shock to break. I had one similar with that problem. Might want to take the ballasts off the tub or brace it to keep from stressing the bearing and seals. Mine had three ballasts, one large cast iron one on top of the tub and two concrete ones either side. One of the concrete ballasts broke and the tub vibrated and pinched wires and damaged seals and was totaled. If nothing but the shock is broke, it's probably worth repairing. However, the other shocks also have the same amount of wear, check them carefully first. Also, check the seals while you're in there. Use a digital camera and take pictures of everything before you take it apart and be very careful with wire routing. Most parts are held with (probably) metric and Phillips. Always unplug it to work on it and plug it into a ground-fault protected circuit. Best to set the machine up to run then plug it in remotely if possible.

I have the same issue with the broken spider...in the us and they say it is $300 for labor and $360 for parts. My washer is only 3+ years old...what can I do?

just remove bolts, open bit enough to fill with silicone, close back wait to dry, ready to go for couple more years.

If you've removed the screws and the panel sticks, tapping on each side will knock it loose. The panel should drop down, then off. You can also try propping the two front feet of the washer up slightly for better access. A 2x4 works real well. This will allow more room for the panel to drop and gives better access to the screws. The washer is very heavy, so you may need some assistance to lift the front. Either lift from the bottom, or place your hands on the front facing of the cabinet to push the washer back. DO NOT push on the door or control panel.
If you still need assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hello Rob - Try rotating the drum manually when it is turned. If you notice that the drum is not balanced and cannot rotate freely, I would suggest contacting a professional so they can move forward accurately. Washer may possibly have a faulty bearing, unbalance drum or pulley issue.
