that Dryer Vent doesn't look good :burnin:

yeah... it vents into an external "aqua box" type lint trap thingy... routing it under the stairwell and through a brick wall to outside vent is another project

Thx, Santa!... Yes, my new ones had the screws in them as you pictured above... They were also Whirlpool brand parts (where as mine is Kenmore -not surprised, just FYI)... They were also a lil beefier, too... They came with 3 tapping screws to screw in the bottom of the base plate -which I didn't do, because of my nylock nut fix from before... actually I was just lazy to locate my screw gun and hex head attachment... figured my nylocks will hold fine, and that the recommendation was for more for the "weak threaded" base plate...

I finally took some pics for you guys:

Washer Assembly out -but after I replaced all stabilizers:

New replacement with Nylock pictured (nylock nut in hand -is fastened from underneath the black baseplate... the bottom of the bottom):

Finished!... taking out and putting it back in the "tight confines" is prolly worse than the fix itself...
takes some hours, though... extended warranty recommended... and hopefully techs can refer to this post!

That fix will last (until the shock actually wears out) I've done several that way. The screws referenced above are included with new shocks, i still dont think they manufacturer the new units with them, or at least I haven't seen any with the screws from the factory.


Well... 5 months later and a shock has done broke! :ohmy:
It actually broke in the middle of one of the springs... But my Nylock nuts were all holding like a champ on the bottom base plate!...
Ordered some new stabilizers...

Wondering if there is a way to ad some bungee cords or something to reinforce these tub stabilizers?
lemme know if someone has done this.
Thx
