stripped stabilizer springs Kenmore Stack washer 110.88752796

08 June 2011 - 04:23 PM

Have stripped stabilizer springs on the bottom side of base plate for Kenmore stackable washer model 110.88752796... (out of warranty)
Sears repairman quoted $400 to replace the bottome plate and all the springs...

The thread rings broke on the bottom of the base plate where the bottom of the stabilizer threads in ... Why it is was designed to be so delicate is beyond me...

So -my thoughts are that I can fix this with a 1/2in 13 coarse thread nylock and thread it on the backside...
In other posts you say that the springs hardly fail... and ours look fine to me.

Our older model Kenmore stacker was over 15 years old and was still working fine before we replaced with this model.
We changed it out to get on 220 for the dryer. :wallbash:

Any advice or objections to my process of fixing this myself.
