    Machine rocking about like crazy on spin
    Took some online research to figure out how to get the cabinet off. Once inside I fitted the wear pads which were a breeze to remove using a knife blade to pry them up and removing them using the screwdriver. The springs were replaced one by one using strong fingers. The machine went through the spin cycle without any rocking or self-destruct noises.

    Acting like it was unbalanced
    I thought I would find broken springs but everything looked good. Comments and video very helpful.I figured springs must be stretched or worn out ,so for the money I figured worth a try. Insallation went well, washingmachine runs like a new machine. Much better than spending money on a new one. Thanks

    washer moving 3 ft during the spin cycle sounding like elephants running through the house
    Removed back panel to remove tub from shell. Unscrewed the brackets holding the springs. Used screw driver to pop out pads with hammer onto screw driver. Cleaned out tub and put grease on springs where they attach to bracket. Replaced panel and ran machine to find a leak. Took machine apart again to find the knocking of the tub against the back panel caused a whole in the plastic tub. Silicon and mechanical tape. Washer works fine for now.

    Out of balance on spin cycle
    Followed the videos on the website. But had to order parts twice because it wasn't the springs it was the plastic bushings the tub sits on that caused the wobble. No big deal though. All told it was still far less expansive than a new machine.

    Washer tub goes out of balance in spin cycle.
    Found leveling spring loose on bottom of washer, the sheet metal on bottom of cabinet ad rusted through. Drilled new hole in sheet metal and installed new leveling spring. Greased hole with blue marine grease so it will last another 40 years.

    tub tilted forward. Some fill water would miss the tub
    Removed cabinet found tub spring had worn thru rear frame, spring was also almost worn thru. Checked suspension springs very very worn at mounting points.
    Ordered needed parts. All in Stock. First bracket came the next day took 5 days to get the rest 1 part at a time.
    Forgot to order suspension spring clips, order them next day shipping came the next day .
    Just because parts are in stock doesn't mean you will receive in a timely fashion if you need parts better order next day freight.
    Videos, parts diagrams and instruction are great, regular freight is not good
