I have a kitchenaid washer that has been making a heck of a noise during the spin cycle. The tub/basket/whatchamacallit is sitting crooked in reference to the top.

I removed the back of the machine and there is a spring that is broken. would this spring cause the issues? If it would, where can I get a new spring and where does it go?

Ok. I'm guessing this is the culprit?

You're looking for parts at the wrong site! Get it here (if you need it):

There should be three of them-- can't tell if all three are there in yours. Compare with this pic:

It looks like the rear counter balance spring. It has a long end like the one pictured.

Thanks!!

Now I realize why your photos looked strange: you took the back panel off! OY!

Here's how it's supposed to come apart:

Looking from the back, in your first photo, the rear counterbalance spring is visibly broken.
