What a crappy design. Hope you get this one back together but I would take it to the junk pile and get a more reliable unit such as a Speed Queen top load.

Yep, the washers worked like a charm - the machine is still operating well and it's been several months. One of the mounting pegs had broken off on the initial breakdown, but the washers on the remaining 3 mounting pegs are holding it on just fine. Glad I didn't call a repair guy or replace the unit with a new one! Saved some money for sure :)

JarfGartz, great to hear.  I ended up putting washers in as well. 20 cents a washer, for an 80 cent fix.  I was not looking forward to replacing the hub cover. I was able to wash a few loads of blankets and it seemed to be ok.  Cross my fingers!
