Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.

Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
these machines are a pain to work on, its either the counterweight on the tub or the snubber is bad, the counterweight is part # XXXXX on this diagram and the snubber isn't even shown on the diagrams, my advice and hate to tell someone this but a tech is the best option for you, taking these machines apart is difficult.

What is the easiest approach to the counter weight?
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
through the back panel # XXXXX on the diagram,.

The counter weight appears to be in great shape and is securly attached. Where are the snubbers located or what else could be the problem?
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
is this level ? try tapping the self leveling legs in the back and see if there loose and drop down, just tip the machine forward and tap them with a hammer then set the machine back down.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Ther are no self leveling legs. (individual screw type legs)
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.

okay when the washer is upright does it move at all ? or is it solid on the floor ?


Customer: replied 5 years ago.
solid on the floor
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
