...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...
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
- The spanner wrench (needed to access the drive block) Part number: TJ90TB123A
- The basket drive Part number: 285792
- The clutch assembly 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.
