    I think a very basic piece of information is missing from the steps above:
    The spring needs to be modelled as a revolved sweep, the animation won't work if you use a helix.

    Additionally to what Steen Winther said, there's another important detail that is not highlighted enough (although it is said in the tutorial) for this method to work: the coil sketch MUST be in EDIT mode before connecting the upper point of the coil axis ant the center of the upper plate.
