Customer Question
My top load washer...

My top load washer vibrates terribly. I've discovered that the skate plate is detached. It seems that the pins have fallen out into little plastic cups

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

It is a Kenmore 600 series probably around 10 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I'm trying to. I'm really cheap LOL

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The Pens have a small hole at the end where they go up through the skate plate and the rest of the machine. Should there be pins going through those little holes?
