Tub Dampening Strap

Fix Number: FIX271100
Manufacturer #: WH1X2727
Manufactured by: GE

Product Description

This is a single tub dampening strap for a washer. It is recommended to replace all 4 tub dampening straps at the same time, to ensure even wear. This part supports the tub and minimizes vibration by keeping it centered in the cabinet. If you notice loud banging or excessive vibration, this could be due to an off-balanced tub caused by a worn or damaged tub dampening strap. While inspecting this part, also check that the tub itself is not damaged where the straps mount. This manufacturer-approved replacement part is black in color and measures 5.875-inches by 0.625-inches.

    my washer would bang when it changed from wash to spin.
    Step 1 unhooked the power. Step 2 unlatch the front panel. Step 3 remove the three screws holding the control panel in place. Move the panel to the right and fold it back over the back of the washer out of the way. Step 4 remove the two screws in front holding the top in place. raise the top slightly and unlatch the switch and slide it out of the top. Remove the top and set aside. Step 5 remove the screws holding both ends of the straps and replace the straps with the new ones. To get the back ones the tub has to be moved over to gain access. It is easier to install the rear straps first, that way the tub will move more. Reassemble in reverse order paying attention to the position of the latches for the front panel so they line up with the slots and latch correctly. After assembly is complete check the tub for level.

    Washer leaking and noisy
    Follow the videos. They explain how to do this repair extremely well. Don't forget that the nut that holds the basket is a left-hand thread. I used a pipe wrench and a hammer to break it loose. I used a screwdriver to stab the old seal and pry it out without damaging the tub. It came out pretty easily. I used hand soap to lubricate the new seal and fit it in after cleaning out the tub's seal seat. It's a relatively easy job and now it doesn't leak and the noise is greatly reduced. I also lubricated the bearings with Lithium grease but that required taking the entire machine apart which is also explained in another video......

    Two out of four Tub Dampening Straps were broken
    On this model you use a screw driver to pop the front of the dryer off. Then you remove a screw from the L bracket on each side that holds the top down. Prop the top up so you have easier access to the back screws that hold the rear dampening straps in place. Remove and replace one strap at a time. The only hard part is getting your hand back in to the screws. Otherwise this is an easy process.
