you will also want to replace the springs while doing this as it is all part of what keeps the tub from banging at the end of the spin cycle.

Customer:

Customer:

oh oh D A my bad

S.E.Thomas :

yes. there are also three springs and a plate that contains 3 pads that the entire tub rides on. at this age all of this is going to be worn out and need to be replaced. i would not recommend. you can most likely purchase a good used machine for less than the parts and also there are some machines made that are almost identical to the one you have for right around $350 new

S.E.Thomas :

the noise that you have could also be the pump. At what part of the wash do you hear the noise?
