Thanks. What I forgot was how to disassemble and reinstall the brake assembly. I had originally had instructions with the brake tool, but lost them.
Yesterday I went and replaced the brake assembly and the snubber because she complained that the washer walks across the floor. I had problems getting the suspension springs back on without the plastic spring tool. I also had problems getting the brake assembly to go back together.
She is still complaining about the machine going off balance and walking, and since I don't think the machine is worth replacing the base and the suspension springs, I guess I am going to pick out a new washer for her. I am leaning to a Whirlpool VMW washer. I think the machine will oulast her because she's almost 90 years old.
