Hello,

We have a Kenmore front end loader washer - Model # 970-C41052-00, that the left side shock arm broke.  I have couple of question on this;

1) What is the proper name for this arm.

2) Are these eary to replace.

3) We only notice the arm broke when we saw water on the ground. I see that it leaks around the arm on the tub part.

4) Could the broken arm damage the tub which is platic and now I have bigger problems.

 

Thanks for any input

You probably have bigger problems. The tub is probably cracked - but a new tub(complete) can be ordered from sears.   3 hours - 12 pack - 5 band-aides. By your third one , you will be down to 1.5 hours..

those huge screws that hold the front and rear tubs together will back out some and she will start to leak at that seal.

go around and tighten all the screws and it will stop if thats the problem

I loosen the lower screws ( half way up each side )  by one turn then I start at the lowest screw and tighten it, then go one screw to the right, tighten it...then do the screw to the left of the first screw, tighten it....alternate back and forth till you get to the top.  It takes longer, but you want to keep the gasket  from bunching up at the lowest point...(like  tightening a head gasket, start  at the center and move out, alternating the  fasteners)........ Get a large mirror and look at the shock mount and see if any thing is broken, use a good light......

Thanks,

I replaced both shockes with used only two bandaids. Once I tighten all the screws, the leak stopped.

 

Thanks for all help
