Question about Washing Machines
Hi, I have a Kennore front load washer with rusted hinges and screws. I bought the hinges from Sears Parts direct but they do not come with screws. I purchased 2 thinking it was two sets as they charge $3 for them but found out that is per screw when I only received 2 screws! I've tried to find these screws everywhere but no one carries them as it is apparantly a #8 screw with a #6 head. It is a flat head, Phillips head screw, silver in color and threading looks like a wood screw. Home Depot said it is not a rust proof type. Do you know of anywhere else to purchase 16 of these screws? They are 3/4" long for the washer door hinges but the dryer uses the same hinge with a shorter screw. Sears sku# is 134424700. Only description is "screw, comb fla" shows "49-H10-31" and "L 23 022 Z 317". Tried a regular #8 but screw does not sit flat so door wouldn't be able to close properly. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
Go to any hardware store and purchase plastic anchors for the #6 screws. Tap the anchor and then your screw will fit and snug down as it should.
