Changing tub shocks ? Help
« on: September 29, 2019, 02:58:50 PM »

Model 110.98575100
I think the one shock on the right side facing the tub is broken.. it has a spring right next to it but the tub leans to the left when-full
I put another spring next to it temp until I get the part
Should I change all three ?
I assume there is a bolt coming up they the bottom then the nut on top
Do you think I can change these without removing the entire cabinet ?
I can get the front panel off no problem but the unit is in a closet / room and I really donít want to pull it out if I can help it

Thank you for the help

The shocks come as a set of three. Part number W10207783. There is no need to take the laundry center out of the closet. Disconnect the hoses and wiring to the washer mechanism and remove the 2 bolts that secure the washer base to the cabinet and slide the washer mechanism straight out of the cabinet. Here's a repair video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRQzNlVjxWU
