Repair Skill Level:
3 Screwdrivers

Suspension rods are used in top load washers to reduce the amount of noise and vibration produced by the unit.

Failure Symptoms: Excessive noise and shaking of the unit.

How to Test: Check to see if one or more of the rods have broken or come out of place.

Repair Tip: When replacing a suspension rod, it is recommended that all rods on the unit be replaced at the same time so they will wear evenly, preventing future balance issues.

  1. Quick Fix, Great Price

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Mar 2019

    We started to get the dreaded DC error code with our Samsung top loader, which up to this point (just over 6 years), we've liked and haven't had any issues other than the recall to reinforce the top of the machine. My assumption is that the excess vibration from spin cycles causes these rods to prematurely wear, although I'm no expert in the field so not sure if this is normal wear and tear. Samsung customer service is horrendous and they offered me the full price of the washer as a refund if I cut the plug and took off serial numbers. It almost seems too good to be true and having read of how painful that process was for many people going back and forth with them, I opted for this $70 fix (4 rods). My time and sanity are worth more than whatever they would have given me and so far this has completely resolved the issue. Hopefully, we can get several more years out of these before it's time for a new machine. Quick YouTube vid, some $4 white lithium grease, 20 minutes, done and done! Best price around and super fast standard shipping, very pleased!

  2. Just what I needed.

    Posted by Haileys Cleaning Services on 12th Nov 2018

    The prices are great. The items are dependable and their customer service is timely as well as excellent.

  3. Worked great

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Sep 2018

    Worked great got rid of my dc code.

  4. Samsung Suspension Rods

    Posted by Christina on 6th Sep 2018

    I bought four of these items with hopes they would fix the problem I was having with my washer not spinning. I am happy to say that my washer is not good as new.

  5. 10 min and DC code is gone

    Posted by BRETT HITCHCOCK on 6th Sep 2018

    Replaced the 4 corners with these new rods and washer is like new again.

  6. Easy Installation - Fixed my "dc" Error Code Issue

    Posted by Tom on 23rd Aug 2018

    Super Easy to install. Be sure to watch the YouTube video first for on how to remove the top cover. Also grab some white lithium grease since you'll need that on the rods. Quick shipping was a plus, too.

  7. Got the job done!

    Posted by A. on 16th Aug 2018

    We had the DC error code on our washer for a few weeks. We got the products and followed the video instruction from another site and it worked good as new. I would recommend doing this yourself if you are able to. It was very easy.

  8. They are good

    Posted by Chau on 15th Aug 2018

    after replacing all four rods, the balancing issue is gone, but I have no idea how long they will be good.

  9. Nice part but did not fix the error codes in spin cycle

    Posted by Scott on 13th Aug 2018

    I read a lot of repair suggestions for the samsung spin cycle problem. Samsung is aware of it and has recalled washers from 2011 to 2016 I believe. Looks like some may be fixed with these rods but not all. Mine was not fixed with these rods. I even added rubber and zip ties like some improved models and it still had the same spin cycle problem. If the old ones look ok they probably are. Ours was 4 years old with a lot of use and I dont think the rods were actually bad after seeing the new ones did not change anything. If you really do need these parts these on here are good quality.

  10. Fixed my DC error code!!

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Aug 2018

    Finally!! I have had this issue for prob 6 months and it was extremely annoying to have it stop right before washer maxhine started spinning. I got off my lazy butt and began researching ways to fix it vs buying another machine bc I really like the machine I have. After trying to stuff foam pieces into the machine and that didnt work, I came across this site, purchased the right parts, installed it in 10 min and started the load and viola it has not stopped since!

    This site was always way cheaper than any other site, thanks!!
