Might you tell us what part you bought for the no spin problem???  I cannot think of anything you would have replaced that needed the suspension plate or the balance spring removed.  If you are referring to the balance spring it just hooks to the superstructure on one end and a hole in the base of the washer on the other end.  Need better information.

THE BEST I CAN TELL YOU IS THAT WE REPLACE A BLACK DISK THAT MAKES THE WASHER SPIN. IT WORKS BUT WE CAN'T GET THE SPRINGS BACK IN PLACE.THEY HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE WASHER BALANCE OUT BECAUSETHE WATER WANT STOP RUN INTO THE WASHER TUB.

so how did you change this "black disc"-i'll assume it is the motor/transmission coupling,but normally there is nothing done to the suspension in replacing it.  did you lay the machine down to do it,this may have allowed the upper suspension plate to turn out of place.

First, please do not use all capitol letters, makes it hard to read and designates shouting in the internet world.  Then please tell us what you bought and what you did to this poor machine to replace this rubber? black disk that would have come with 2 plastic pieces with 3 prongs each.  I suspect your hose to the fill level switch is off if the washer does not stop filling, might have come off of the side of the tub bubble.  You are going to have to stop with the generalizations and give up exact facts please....

Hey, Blackcherry, thank the pot-bellied Buddha that Pegi answered this one before I did-- she has more grace and patience than I do.
