I ordered the dampening straps for my washer tub. I ordered 4 of them and was just wondering if they had to be placed in a specific order or anything?

When on the spin cycle the washer makes a loud noise much louder than ever before. Is it the bearing or something else. I checked the rubber straps and the belt and all looks good..if it is the bearing can this be repaired at home?
For model number WHRE5260E1WW
Hi David, Thank you for the question. Yes, the tub bearing PartSelect Number PS271510 is the most common part to replacing when having a lot of noise during the spin cycle. Here is a link to the video on how to do the repair yourself. Hope this helps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWe8YAMM_Ds

The dampening straps in my washer keep breaking earlier than they should be and I don’t think it has to do with the way I am installing them. Can you clarify whether this would be an installation problem or if there’s something else on the go here
Hi Gina, dampening straps break prematurely when the washer is being overloaded, or is frequently off balance during cycle. I hope this helps!

Auto sensor turns water on tot 1 sac won''t fill up
For model number Wtw57esvw1
Hi Jerry, Thank you for your question. If the dishwasher is not filling with water, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the direct drive water pump, the sensor switch, the lid switch, the hose clamp and the direct drive motor coupling. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

When i first start washer why does water leak out top of the washer
Hi James, Thank you for your question. If you have water leaking from the washer you will need to check the hoses, the pump, the water inlet valve and the water level or pressure switch. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Could it be that the dampening straps are not broken but maybe stretched and causing the washer tub to sit one sided?
Hi Roger, Thank you for your question. That may be the issue. The only way you will know is if you check the straps. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Hello: I bought four ps271100 (tub dampening straps) and after installing it the washer still shakes too much and actually sounds like the tub is hitting the sides of the washer. Are there shorter straps that i could buy or do you have any other suggestions on how to avoid the tub shaking so much. Thanks
For model number WWSR3090T5WW
Hello Luis, thank you for contacting us. It sounds like you may need to replace the suspension rods. PS270536 PS270537 Good luck with the repair!

When my washer is agitating it’s making a moaning noise like it’s suffering or something. When its filling up with water or draining it doesn’t seem to make that noise. Could the washer tub need new dampening straps
Hi Rema, based on your symptoms we would not recommend new dampening straps. It sounds more like it could be a motor straining, or a faulty mode shifter. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

The washer makes a lot of noise and leaks when washing.
For model number GTWN2800D0WW
Hi Roseanne, Thank you for your question. There are a few parts that you will want to check. The first part to check would be your tub seal. You should also check your nut and washers in that same area as well. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

broken dampening strap and loose agitator
first remove the front washer cover by finding the two pressure clips that hold it to the top lid. gently push the putty knife into the clips one at a time. this will raise and separate them from the front panel. the panel will tilt forward and u can now remove it from the bottom clips by sliding it up and out. to open the top cover u remove the two 1/4 in screws on the sides of the front panel and lift the top. make sure to secure it in place or unplug the single electrical connection at the rear and remove the whole top from the clips, its really simple and the most convenient mehtod. to remove the straps u can now get to all four without much interference. there are two size screw heads so make sure u have a nut driver or small socket set. after changing the straps i went to change the agitator coupling. the agitator pulled directly up without a problem. just put your two hands under and pull straight up with one good jolt. the plastic coupler has one bolt in the middle that came out easily with a small socket set. my problem arose when the plastic coupler would not come off the metal shaft. after a short time of pulling and prying i finally decided to cut it off. using a small hacksaw and taking my time i put two cuts into the coupler. they were on opposite sides and where vertical, running along the steel shaft. i could now split it in two and it came off very easily and quickly. now when putting on the new one make sure the splines line up. push as far down as u can then use the center bolt to seat the gear all the way down. the agitator also has to be lined up just right. it also has splines on the interior that allow it to line up with the coupler and merely push down until it reseats itself in place. replace the top of the washer and then the front panel. don't forget to rebolt the top panel to the frame. push the front panel in until it snaps into place. full replacement time was about 40 minutes and actually not bad with the right tools.

Pump and Motor Assembly began leaking and then seized.
First I removed the front panel by prying it forward with a Screw driver away from the side panels at the top (wrap a shop rag around the Screw driver to keep from scratching the paint). Once you have the panel pried loose at the top ... lean it forward until you can lift it off the tab type hooks at the bottom.
I next unplugged the wires from the motor. The orginal motor had three wires ... two on top and one on the left side. The one on the side is a ground wire for the open frame motor. The replacement motor is sealed and does not require this wire. Just leave it unplugged when the new one is installed.
Next I removed the inlet hose that attaches to the back of the pump. Remove it by loosening the hose clamp and removing it from the bottom of the tub, leaving it attached to the back of the pump. It is much easier to remove and transfer to the new pump once it is out rather than fight with the spring type clamp on the back of the pump in the close quarters inside the machine.
Next I removed the outlet hose from the top of the pump. Squeeze the spring clamp with Pliers and work it up and off the pump.
Now I just used a Socket to remove the two bolts holding the bracket to the inside front of the machine and removed the assembly.
I now removed the inlet hose from the back of the old pump. Just squeeze the spring clamp with Pliers and work it up the hose and off the pump. Transfer the hose to the back of the new pump reusing the same clamp.
I now bolted the assembly back into the machine, reattached the outlet hose to the pump, and then reattached inlet hose to the bottom of the tub. All that was left to do was plug in the two wires to the top front of the pump motor (as I mentioned earlier, leave the side wire from the old pump unplugged as it is not needed on the new one). I then ran the machine for a few moments with the front off to check for any leaks and then put the front panel back on.
The whole replacement cost about $50 and took barely 15 min. from start to finish. The machine now works perfectly.

Washing Machine would not balance on spin cycle
I replaced the work tub dampening strap because that what everyone recommended to replace for this problem. However the purpose of these straps is to dampen the agitation cycle and they have nothing to with the spin cycle at all. the balance ring assembly had been rubbing on the outer tub so I decided to replace it because of a "balance issue". However the ring is liquid with baffles to counter balance the load as it spins and it still had the liquid inside of it so it was actual not needed. What fixed my issue was I found a bolt laying at the bottom of the washer. This bolt was one of the 4 bolts that hold the outer tub to the metal support. When it feel out the tub was only held in at 3 points not the needed 4. This allowed it to rock a bit in the high speed spin and you thought it was going to fly into a 1000 pieces. I replaced the bolt and other parts since I had paid for them and everything works great now.

Loud banging noise
Removed the front cover of the washer by sliding a screw driver to release the clips. Loosened the 4 nuts that held the drivebelt motor pushed the motor back to release the drive belt. Replaced the drive belt, pulled motor until drive belt was snug and tighted the 4 bolts. At the same time, I replaced the 4 tub dampening straps located at the top of the tub and now the unit is just like new.

Washer was leaking where the tranmission entered the tub
Based on other research, the location of the leak indicated that the main tub seal needed to be replaced. I took the washer apart before ordering new parts in case I broke other parts in the process and to be sure I could. I ended up having to cut off the Agitator Coupling and really marred up the hub nut. Those were the hardest 2 pieces to remove since they had corroded badly after many years of use. I had to use a pipe wrench and a hammer to remove the hub nut and a hack saw to get the agitator coupling off (air bell).
$68.00 and 2 hours later, the washer no longer leaks.

Noticed 3 straps were broken when we replaced the hose
I removed the front cover, then unscrewed the top to expose the top. There are two screws that hold each strap, which turns out are different sizes, so I had to use two different sockets. I also had to remove the hose & plastic tube for the bleach. Once that was done, the replacement was easy, I replaced all 4 straps, reconnected the tube for the bleach, screwed the top back on and snapped the front cover into place. This took maybe 30 minutes - and I am female!

Very Noisy In Spin
When disassembling I could not remove the 1 3/4" tub nut with in house tools and had to order the spanner wrench. Almost mandatory unless you have a socket wrench.

Water leaking through Tub Seal
First and foremost, the job would have taken 2 hrs instead of 8 hrs. The problem was that no one on the help instructions said that the Hub Nut had a LEFT HAND thread and suggested to just break the nut off. Well, after chiseling off most of the nut I drilled small holes through the nut and removed the nut pieces. However; I learned that I had damaged the transmission seal and had to buy a new transmission $183. Had I known this the job would have taken much less time and at a cost of about $50.
PS: The washer runs great.
