#209796 stripped stabilizer springs Kenmore Stack washer 110.88752796

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!
