I have a Cabrio Washer (Model wtw5000dw1) that shakes violently during spin cycles.  The washer is level and my assumption is that the suspension springs need to be replaced.  I have found several video that show how to do the replacement.  Does anyone know if there is a way I can remove all four springs at the same time so I can compare and see if they appear to be bad?

I am sorry, i totally missed that in your first post.
Ok so you would not want to replace just one of these, all 4 need to be replaced or you will end up right back to doing this repair again ..Whirlpool highly recommends replacing all 4 and this is why these are sold in a 4 pk as shown here --> https://www.appliancezone.com/w11130362-whirlpool-washer-suspension-rod-kit-4-pack/

Thanks!  Do you know how I check if they are bad?  If there is a way to visually check it would be appreciated.  My tub seems to be sagging toward the back and is not level with the top of the washer.

sometimes one rod will have a slight bend or you can visibly see a worn or broken spring

I ended up replacing the suspension springs but the issue still exists.  It shakes violently on the spin cycle.  Any thoughts on what could be the issue?
