Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Yes that is a common issue with those models when they get a little age on them, you need to replace the suspension rods and that will take care of that problem. The replacement kit is listed below along with directions to replace them.

Here is a video that shows how to replace the suspension rods, its not your exact model washer but the replacement procedure is the same as yours - click here for video
