have replaced suspension legs should I also repace springs

It's a Hotpoint first edition WMA11 oldbut loved, have replaced suspension legs should I also replace side/ top springs even though when I inspected them they looked felt ok ? And if so howdo I order the correct ones, as on line there are loads. And how does a washing machine workout it has a balanced load before take off ? Thanks all

Right put it all back together I did have it all stripped down didn't replace side springs put small load in set on quick wash it goes through agitation mode but looking at the drum through window is jumping everywhere, never did that before it stops waits then goes a bit more , then when I think it's going to go into fast spin it just stops the lights over the start button are on active and door locked but it just switches off . I know I should buy a new one but as I said earlier I'm partially sighted fed up and determined to fix my old old friend ....sad ay !

Chosen Solution

I suspect:

Cause 1

Tub Bearing

The tub bearing is mounted in the middle of the outer tub. The tub bearing helps to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. Replacing the tub bearing is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. If the tub bearing is defective, we recommend replacing both the outer tub and bearing as an assembly if the manufacturer offers the components together.

Cause 2

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit

The tub bearing is mounted in the middle of the outer tub. The tub bearing helps to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. If the washer is noisy during the spin cycle or is leaking from the bottom of the tub near the transmission, the tub seal and bearing are likely defective. Replacing the tub bearing is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. If the tub bearing is defective, we recommend replacing the outer tub and bearing at the same time.

Cause 3

Rear Drum with Bearing

The rear drum has a bearing or bearings in it to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. If the tub bearing system is defective the washer can become very noisy. On some machines bearings are sold separately from the rear drum, however we recommend replacing both the outer drum and bearing as an assembly if the manufacturer offers the components together because removing and pressing in the new bearing can be exceptionally difficult. Be aware that replacing the outer tub and bearing is also not easy and can be very costly.
