I need to replace a baffle from inside my Elite HE3T. Do you have directions? Only 1 came off but when I order the new one apparently it only comes in 3, so show I replace the other 2 as well? (if I can figure out how)
Of course the part did not come with any! And Sears customer service is of no help and the technical people have not responded to me.

SOURCE: defy automaid won't spin
Put the machine on its side and check the wires to the pump. i found one of the wires broke off the lug on the pump side. Could be from all the vibration from the drum. The machine will only spin if the drainage is working.

Try Youtube below. This video really helped me when I replaced mine. Basically the entire machine has to come apart. If you are lucky, its just the bearings and seal. I replaced my bearings and seal for under $30. The bearings are likely Chinese in origin, mine were on my Kenmore, I replaced with more Chinese, you can buy SKF which are more money but likely wont last any longer, basically submerged in water a lot. The bearings will be able to be knocked out of the plastic drum with a little effort once you completely dismantle the plastic drum which has about 20 bolts or so. Now remember, the bearings only seat in one way, so dont beat on the bearings too much with a hammer and screw driver, they should come out without too much effort. They press in place, so save the old bearing and lay it on top of the new one to tap it in place. It depends on which model you have. It is likely a Frigidaire, look at the drum when it is exposed, it may be stamped. Anyway, it does not matter, if it is the bearings, they will need changing, and the rubber seal that goes over the shaft too. The seal may not look too worn, but it is, and the water has come in to where the bearings sit, so you can guess at what happens after awhile. Also, if you are not so lucky, the aluminun tribar housing holding the stainless drum onto the shaft will be cracked, if that is the case, you may want to look at another machine as parts may be too expensive. Just remember, the bearings will be standard type, and will be stamped into the race for identification. Google the bearings numbers and you will find them. Find a local supplier of bearings and they will find them for you, and the seal. It takes about 3 hours to dismantle, going slow, and a little less back together If you are a handy person, you can do it but on a scale of 1 to 10 it is about a 8 for difficulty. The hardest part for me was getting the darn aluminum belt pulley off the back of the drum shaft, what a nightmare, it was siezed, I had to use my propane torch being careful not to overheat the plastic drum.

Testimonial: "Thanks, looks as though it wont be the train smash I originally thought it mite be"
Marcone is good place to get the door boot. Call the 800 number on the top of the screen. They can look up the part number for you. All you should need is the model as you have described here but have the serial number ready just in case. They can send it directly to your door. If there is any problem with the link at the top Marcone's website is marcone.com.
