We alreaty replaced the water pump, but still the same problem...

...Also, I'm attaching a photo of a part that we are not sure what it is and if it is normal. Looks like a brace of sorts that should be closed.?..but we have no idea. Couldn't find it on the website...
Hi Maria,

The slow spin (wet clothes) could be caused by: unbalanced load; a clogged hoses to and from the drain pump; a bad drive block (#10 at the diagram); a bad basket drive (#1 at the diagram) or a bad clutch (#5 at the diagram). You can find more information in one of our previous threads: not spinning

- The drive block Part number: 389140

Part number: 389140

- The spanner wrench (needed to access the drive block) Part number: TJ90TB123A

Part number: TJ90TB123A

- The basket drive Part number: 285792

Part number: 285792

- The clutch assembly Part number: 285785

Part number: 285785

The part on your picture is the suspension spring. It looks not so bad and I don't think it needs any attention so far.
