Spins to the point the washer wants to walk
« on: December 14, 2008, 06:12:37 PM »
Model Number: LXR9245EQ1 icon

Gents.
I just bought this same washer (used) for my son and it spins to the point the washer wants to walk.  So I think the previous owners laid it on it's side as described by 'nivard'.
Can someone help point out the pads and springs I need to replace ?



Per the attached link are the pads
#16 (qty of 3)
Per the attacehd link are the springs
#3  (qty of 3)

Please help direct me to the right items.  
Does anyone have the Whirlpool numbers for these items ?
Any suggestions on the best place to get the parts ?

Also, can it be something else ?  The rear self-levelers appear to work and I have relevel the front-back/right-left sides.

Thanks
Newbie in Round Rock

I know we (ApplianceJunk.com) have had problems PartSelect. I would not recommend them to anyone at this point.

Thanks Al,
I thought my question was exactly as described in the original posting.  I was thinking they could offer the correct parts to fix it.

Your best bet is to buy the "Skate Plate Kit" part # 3946509 as shown below. Your 3 springs are part # 63907. Use anyof the parts resources you see here to order them.

WHIRLPOOL 3946509 Skate Plate, AP3131363






WHIRLPOOL 63907 Suspension Spring, AP3136257
