Re: Baffles in washer
The new baffles arefairly easy to install, they go over the hole and then pull foward to lock into place.. the new bsaffle should also come with a screw to "lock" it, in place. in order to securethis screw you need to remove the top cover of the unit,(3 screws across theback) after removing the top youll see a black hose going directly into thetop of the tub prbably an inch or so . gently pull that hose out from thetub. It simply locks itself inplace.. after removing you can spin the inner drum around till thenew baffle is directly under the "hole" where you can now see a small hole inth eunderside of baffle to secure.. just remember to resecure that hose or youll have a flood on your hands

To remove the dryer drum baffles on a Whirlpool Duet, follow these steps:
1. UNPLUG the dryer.
2. Remove the top panel of the appliance by removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.
3. Locate the bolts that hold the baffles in place on the outside perimeter of the drum. There should be 2 for each one.
4. Remove the screws for the baffle and it will come off.
1. Remove ONE baffle at a time so you can use the remaining baffles to turn the drum manually.
2. Drum rotates in a clockwise direction.
3. When removing or reinstalling each baffle, duct taping it place will keep it from flipping around when you get to the last bolt holding it in place. It will also keep it from dropping in the drum when removing, and help you hold it in place to reinstalling.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
Just order a new one from an online parts store and put it in. The new ones dont screw from behind. They just snap in. By the way, the rest of the baffles will break as well. So you may as well by a couple. But there not cheap-You can order them through Sears and pay 23.95 each.
easy repair, they simply slide over hte slits in the tib and firmly pull forard to snap/lock into place. there should also be a screw included in the kit, remove the top of washer (3 screws across the back of the lid)after removing hte main top toull see a black accordian like hose leading to the top of the tub assy, from the dispensor box to the left. remove this hose from the tub( pulls out of the hole), then simply turn the tub form the inside till the baffle you installed is at the 12 o'clock positon your screw hole will be right there. RESECURE THE HOSE, reassemble the top and your done!
These are called drum baffles. They can be found at repairclinic.com. Type in your model number and search for item #1058883. A set of three of them goes for about $34. It is cheaper to buy them in this quantity as a single baffle ranges in price from $22 to $34, depending on which website you go to. The baffles should have installation instructions with them. Of not, let me know. I hope this helps you.
