Suspension spring and rod assembly
« on: December 11, 2009, 03:58:59 AM »
Hi everybody,
I have a Whirlpool thin twin stack, with a misaligned washer tub. I checked the suspension assemblies to see if one was broken, all 3 were ok. But on each assembly there is a clamp to hold the spring together, all 3 were off and now my wash tub is too close to the top of the cabinet, and leaning towards the back.
Does anyone know if the replacement assemblies come with the clamps on them? So far all the ones I saw, dont come with them.

Model LT500XSW1

"clamps to hold the springs together"??  That's part of the new spring assembly...
Just repace all 3 and you'll be OK

The springs come as shown below:

Just wanted to update everybody on my repair. I ordered the assemblies from Appliance Parts Pro including some other items for my dryer. After replacing all 3 of them, my washer works great!!
Thanks for the advice,!!
