whirlpool cabrio; getting ul code; how to fix?

Hi, my name isXXXXX am hoping that I will be able to help you with your problem today..If you replace the dampeners/ suspension rods on the outer tub this will fix your problem,,, I have been seeing this a lot in the last few months on the Oasis and Cabrio washers. the part number for the suspension rods are W10189077, it comes as a pack of 4 to replace all of them. You can order the parts you need from the following places,,,, or, all of these places offer easy returns and reasonable prices for their items.

Please tell why I should replace these rods(could it be something else) Do they stretch over time, lose their funtionability, or what. They appear to be loose, but I think they may have always been loose, maybe not as much flexiblity as now.
they lose the flexibility over time, it only takes one not to operate properly, the new number I gave you is an updated set with extra parts to reduce the wear on the balls at the top, instead of having to use grease it uses a special plastic cup now.

This machine is not that old, should I consider it may be something else? we do 3-4 loads per day, what happened to a washer lasting 10-12 years?

We are thinking of buying a new set, what do you recommend?

Personally I cannot stand the machine, I work on 2 or 3 of them every single day, from bearings to pumps to suspension going out in them, you could not really give one of these,,, as for machines lasting 10 years you can forget it... I would still by a whirlpool washer however I would have one with an agitator as they are using the same technology as 15 years ago and have held up well..
