The washer seems to be out of balance and banging during the spin and the clothes come out still very wet plus I'm finding bits of melted plastic residue from the plastic ring in the boot. I've checked the shocks and they're not completely lose or floppy. I reached in and I can compress and extend them with some force. The left shock did have a small amount of fluid puddled under it but again it seemed to have decent resistance. Or, should the shocks have much more resistance meaning I could not just reach under and with some moderate force compress and extend them? The washer is in great shape and I've never had any problems until, and I don't know if this is related, about a month ago I was repairing a dryer vent leack and was cleaning around the dryer and tipped the washer to the “left” about 45 degrees to clean under and around it and that's about the time the trouble started. Could this “left” tip be related to the left shock having a small amount of oil under it?
