If the washer is level and balanced on the floor then suspension rods are gonna need to be changed in the unit, if you give me the model number off the washer, the one you supplied is not correct, raise the lid on the washer and it should be on a tag on the frame of the washer under the lid with the model and serial number, thanks.

In the meantime :

I Kindly ask you to rate my service BEFORE YOU LEAVE TODAY by clicking 3 or better on the STAR RATING SYSTEM at the top of your page. If you don't see it please let me know.

Please be aware that this rating is for the quality of my response, not a rating for the overall experience you have had on this site as this rating reflects on me not on the site.

Rating me will not in any way affect the amount you agreed to pay for the question. This will also allow you to get directly back to me for FREE follow up questions.

Before leaving a negative rating please discuss it with me first so I can have a chance to remedy the issue.

TIPS are not expected but are GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Thank you!
