The spin cycle on the relic has started to spin out of balance over the past month.  I took the front door off and noticed shards of black rubber/plastic on the floor.  It seems the heavier the load, the more the BAM BAM.  I know something is worn out in there but I just need to know what and how to fix it.  I poured a pint of whiskey and a six pack of brew down her but all she did is stop the BAM BAM and started to wobble side to side, lol.  Help me please.

Usually easy problem to find:

See that all three tub springs are intact.

Check damper pads for wear.

Make sure motor moves freely on it's slides, springs intact.

Okie dokie, Springs are in great shape, motor spins free as a bird.  I can see where the damper pads are but how do I disassemble to actually get to them?  I can only see a small sliver of them.  I also foresee a problem in re-assemble with the springs.  Thanks for your help.

To change out the damper pads, rock the tub away from the pad you want to change and block it up with a piece of wood. Rinse, lather, repeat. Eess seemple, da?

First you have to remove your belts and take the drive pulley off (one screw in the middle of the pulley and a drive lug, do not loose them).  Then remove the front of the unit to access the tubs and springs.  I recommend you have a piece of 4X4 and 3 metal electrical junction boxes you can pick up at your local hardware store.  Once the pulley is off, the only thing holding the tub and trans on top of the base is the springs.  If you push the tub far back in any direction, you will elongate the spring allowing you to insert the electrical box into it.  When you allow the tub to come back to center, the spring will stay elongated allowing you to remove it.  Carefully set the springs aside when they are all removed.  Once that is done, you then tilt the unit back and put the piece of 4X4 under it so as you drop the unit down, the shaft of the trans hits the 4X4 and raises the tub and trans up allowing access to the pads.  IF you want to remove the trans, and tub superstructure to give yourself more room, go for it.  But it is a little heavy and awkward (Porcelain tub, cement balance ring).

Changed the pads and they seemed to have a little wear but not much. I didn't know how much wear it would take to cause the shimmy, so I replaced the pads anyway. The spin cycle seemed to spin better but not perfectly. It is better but this leads to another question. I have shards of black rubber/plastic and metal mixed on the base of the washer floor. You can tell this is coming from the spin cycle because it is spread across the entire base, from front to back. This didn't come from the damper pads because there was no residue in this area when the pads were replaced. I believe it is coming from the base of the tub. I can see a black rubber piece in this suspected area. Could I have an additional problem coming from this area?

By the way, another way to keep the springs elongated is to put either nickels or quarters on both sides of each layer of the springs. This, of course, has to be done after the tub is rocked away from the spring to lengthen it. You have to put the coins on both sides of the springs to keep it straight when the pressure is released. I tried the electrical box but I had a hard time taking up enough slack without the box bending. The coins worked like a charm and it took no time to get the springs back in place after the pads were changed.
