I have replaced the shock absorbers now I now need to remove & replace the detergent dispenser in its entireity or perhaps I can get away with a component.
Besides my procrastenation, I need help with how to remove and replace the sucker.

The drum came up and smacked it hard when the shock absorbers were broken.
Thanks again. Where to go for step by step instructions on its replacement? Used part possibilities?
I am handy but new to ripping apart appliances. Is this task well beyond a grasshopper?

Ok. Here's where I am at.
I have purchased the replacement assembly along with the service manual and I am ready to remove the broken assembly.
I have everything disconnected and have pushed the broken assembly back through it's opening. Now (I guess to provide sufficient room?) I need to move the suspension springs back to their temporary home.
I have pulled up and I have pulled up mightly, per the directions on page 76 of the service manual, and can't seem to get the tub up high enough to release the top hook on the spring.
Any tricks here? Do i need to disconnect the shocks. Do I need to reposition both springs.
Thanks for your help I appreciate you patience with a newbie.
I am going to fix this sucker

This is toughest part of the job. Are you using a spring release tool? It's pretty much essential to fight against the shock absorbers. Absent that, another pair of hands may get the job done, too.

Sounds like I am going to need the extra purchase that the Spring Release Tool will give my pulling hand. I will get some 1/4" steel tomorrow and fashion one per the service manual.

Moving the suspension springs around was a two man, four handed job.
Thanks and I will be back
