    Default Suspension rod colors

    What is the significance of the colors on suspension rods on these HE Maytag washers? I have one that seems to have very weak rods. As you know, I also have others with ..whatever wrong with them. The one with the weak rods does everything it is supposed to do, but it may walk off when it goes into the spin cycle. The cabinet even has dents in the front from this. I push down on the inner tub and it bounces several times before it stops.

    I want to replace the rods with the rods from another that does not bounce more than once when pushed down on, but the colors are different and they show to have different part numbers.

    Do the colors signify different strengths? The ones needing changed are pink.

    I have no idea if the colour means much.....but there definitely will be different ones depending on the design of the unit.

    I don't believe it would be a good idea to interchange these.
    I have not really paid attention to what ones have what colour....but have had to change some of these out for out of balance issues ( like tubs crashing into the cabinet, shaking and shows an off-balanced code ).

    I found some that are the same colour and that look the same...but have different part#'s...
