I need to replace one of the three grey ''Baffles'' that goes inside the tub. I know it snaps in, but I cannot figure out how to insert the screw from behind the tub.

You shouldn't have to get from the backside the screw is at the rear of the baffle once you remove the screw the tabs slide and lock into slots push and pull and just reverse the process when installing the new one

How do I get change out of the washer? It went


I think you are talking about the three tub baffles that are attached to the inner tub. You can remove the baffles, usually one or two screws hold these into the tub. If it only has one screw then the opposite end is clipped into the tub. Most coins however get flushed down into the drain pump filter. We call this a coin catcher as that is what it is designed to do. Remove the front bottom panel, 3 to 4 screws on the bottom. Put a towel down under the pump to catch about a half gallon of water. There is a large round plastic screw that you unscrew from the pump assembly. The screw is three to 4 inches in diameter and almost dead center on the bottom front of the washer. Once you have unscrewed the unit, pull it out and clean out everything you see. Look inside and make sure there is nothing in the hose or the pump inlet hole. Reinstall and test for leaks before you put the panel back on. I recommend you clean this out every 6 months. Good Luck,

Change one baffle only or do you need to replace all three?


No as long as the baffles are screwed in properly and no other damage is present it is not important at all.

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.

F32 is the code for a Water Level Switch Failure.
1. Remove the top panel from the washer by removing the three screws in the top back of the washer.
2. Inside the back right corner is a round plastic box, fastened to the side with a plastic snap. In will have a wire connector and a small, rubber hose connected to it.
3. Check to make sure all the connector wires are connected and tight. Unplug washer for 30 seconds to reset it. If the cycle fails still with the F32 code, you'll need to replace the Water Level Switch.
4. If the Water Level Switch does not eliminate the F32 code, it then the machine controller may have failed.

This advice from Sears to replace baffles only applies to dryers. The baffles for the washer are installed from inside the basket. If you can't locate mounting from inside the basket, then the entire basket/tub will have to be removed and disassembled.(big job)... But I am pretty sure they mount from inside. Washer or dryer, there are three screws in the rear along the top. Remove screws, slide top toward rear and lift off.

Whirlpool duet washer has rock, marble, or something stuck inside


as long as your sure its an item between the tub assy the baffles in the drum can be removed and item fished out. but ifsomething snapped on the rear of the drum you would need to replace it. the baffle part number is 8182233, its about $40 thinknin thats worth a try before 475. the lower acess panel could also be removed and the main tub to pump hose could be removed which would give you a 3in hole to look through and try to grab somethin. worth a try
