I like to fix my own stuff. Thankfully my washing machine is old enough (15+ years) to allow for repair. Over sized corporations are attempting to limit and even eliminate the need for skills to build and maintain products and services that are intrinsic in a healthy society. Politicians are now just testing the waters on "rights to repair" bills and being denied.
I therefor give Speedy Appliance my highest recommendation for outstanding order fulfillment, immediate shipping via the USPS which was "adequate", and best price far below competitors even given the high US to CDN exchange rate. My machine works better than before I repaired the springs because they're NEW!
Keep America and Canada GREAT! because there's a lot of talent in us old timers and enough young'uns eager to keep employment and economics simple and home grown. Excellent!.
Be it adamantly clear that I refused to use the Google request for rating as they are the very epitome of monopolies attempting to dumb down and eliminate free thought and independence. I recommend that Speedy formulate their own rating service or contract the services of other up and comers.
It's relatively easy to replace these springs, but it's good to have a helper. My wife and I laid the washer down its side to alleviate pressure for easier removal of old springs and installation of new ones. If you opt to do it this way, you'll need to be careful to not allow the heavy internal tub to smash and potentially damage anything vital (e.g., electrical control box in corner on opposite side of wall behind wash selector knob). Removal of top spring hook was accomplished by simply pulling on the spring and positioning it so that the hook would easily come through the top hole when the tub was pushed on, the lower hook then removed from the tub. Installation of the tighter, newer spring was done by first attaching the bottom hook to the tub, then using a straightened, standard thin metal coat hanger bent in the middle and placed beneath the underside of the top spring hook to pull it through the top hole, the coat hanger then removed, the hook positioned appropriately, and the tub pushed on to secure the hook. (The same could be accomplished using, for example, parachute cord. Whatever works and is handy.) NOTE: Don't bother ordering new springs without first checking to see if the shocks supporting the tub from below also need replacing. If the shocks are worn, damaged or broken, installing new springs won't solve the problem of the tub slamming against the front/back of the machine during spin cycle. Replacing shocks on our machine was more of a hassle than replacing the suspension springs, but we saved money by doing it ourselves.
