how to fix washing machine front spring
Our washing machine front spring appears to have come off, top load older Roper washing machine.
the drum inside the machine when you lift the lid tilts toward the back of the machine when the drum is empty. and when you wiggle the washing machine just a little bit you can hear something right on the inside of the machine hit the front. It is a metal on metal sound, so I assume its the spring.
I've been looking at it and can't seem to figure out how to access the front of the machine. The front panel does not come off it looks as if the front and 2 sides are all one connected piece..
How can I gain access to the front of this machine to hopefully reattach what i assume is a unhooked spring..
EDIT.... I just figured it out by messing with it...the entire front and 2 sides peice tilts forward exposing the drum and inner parts.... sadly i did no see any loose springs. I'm not sure what was causing the metal on metal sound near the front, but when I put it back together the sound was gone.... hmmmm i dunno
