Sounds like drum is going to come thru sides of cabinet
For model number RTW4340SQ0
PartSelect logo
Hi Tom, thank you for reaching out. Based on the description that you have provided, we would recommend that you first make sure the washer is level and adjust the leveling legs if necessary. If that is not causing the issue, then you may need to confirm that the load is balanced. If there are light and heavy items in the same load, the tub will spin out of balance. If the load is balanced, then the most probable cause of this issue is a worn-out suspension spring, part number PS11743345, which may need to be replaced. We hope this helps!

For model number RTW4340SQ0

Hello Raul, thank you for reaching out. Your washer is equipped with a lid switch assembly, part number PS11745957. The pin on the lid pushes on the lever of the lid switch to tell the machine that the lid is closed. It stops the washer from operating if the lid is open. If your washer does not operate after closing the lid, you may need to check the lid switch to fix the issue. We hope this information helps!

My washer shakes/moves on the spin cycle. I replaced the springs and still continues to shake. Anyone have an ideas on what the next part I can replace is?
For model number RTW4340SQ0
PartSelect logo
Hi Jordan, thank you for contacting us. Based on our understanding of the issue, we would suggest checking the balance ring, part number PS11741965, to solve the problem. It fits around the top of the basket and is filled with fluid. The balance ring acts as a counterweight to keep the spin basket balanced as it agitates and spins. We hope this helps!

No movement from Basket & agitator
The job looked intimidating but turned out to be very easy.
First take off the water pump by removing the two clips that hold it in place. Place a shallow pan under the pump to catch the water that is in the pump and hoses. Open the hose clamps with a pair of pliers or channel locks (better) and slide the hoses off of the water pump.
The motor comes off next. Unplug the electrical connector from the motor and two wires from the capacitor. Remove the two screws holding the clamps in place and then pop off the two clamps. You will need to hold up the motor with one hand while you remove the clamps or it will fall to the floor once the clamps are removed.
One piece of the coupling assemble will be attached to the motor and the other will be attached to the gearcase drive shaft. If you want to clean up the mess created by the shredded rubber center piece of the coupling assembly you will have to take off the motor mounting plate. It is held on by two bolts and removing it makes installing the coupling easier but probably not necessary.
Push the back half of the coupling on to the gearcase drive shaft until the shaft is flush with the face of the coupling. Install the new rubber center piece on to the coupling then re-install the motor mounting plate. Install the other half of the coupling on to the motor shaft and lift the motor up to the coupling. You have to rotate the motor shaft by spinning the fan blades until the coupling lines up so you can slide it into the other half of the coupling. Then just reattach the motor, connectors and water pump in the reverse order of disassembly.

washer wouldn't agitate
First pry off the cap of the agitator. Then using a socket remove the bolt that holds the plastic cup in place. Remove this cup by prying it loose from the two tabs that hold it in place. Once this cup is removed you can get to the broken cogs.
Slip the new cogs into the underside of the cup, and slide the cup back down in the agitator housing using the slots on the side for a guide. (You may want to remove the entire agitator and assemble everything upside down, then flip it all back over to mount, so the cogs don't fall out).
Tighten the bolt, snap the cap back in place on top of the agitator and your'e done. Easy repair.

Upper portion of agitator, no longer pushing clothing down.
The instructions came with the repair kit, it was fairly simple and straight foward.

One bolt held the entire agitator unit in the washer, as well as held the upper and lower halves together. Once that nut was removed the two halves seperated and the plastic clutch pieces could easily be replaced wtih the new onces in the repair kit.

Very easy do-it-yourself repair! Took about 20 minutes because I was being cautious. Next time I could do it in 5 minutes.
