Replacement baffle installation

My factory installed baffle fell off. The baffle (or shoe) is the part that turns the laundry. There are three of these inside the laundry machine. I ordered a replacement, but I can't seem to get it installed/connected. Help!

    Had on ebafle come loose. The plastic lips had broken off that secure it into the drum.. It was coverd under warrnaty and a replacement baffle was installed.

    This baffle now came loose in the wash ripping holes in the bed sheets from the sharp protursion of the drum under the baffle. The plastic is intact this time.

    While there appears ot be a screw hole there is no screw installed, This goes for the other two baffles also. They can be removed relatively easily but do not appear to come off in the wash. Could the slots in the drum be bent from the first failure so as to not secure this baffle anymore? How to fix?

    I had to replace a torn baffle. I have attempted twice to secure the new baffle to the drum, but it keeps coming loose. The retaining sea clamp seems to be tight, but it will not hold. Should I be using glue or sealant between the baffle and the inner drum? Is there a risk of cracking the drum if the sea clamp is too tight?

    I had to replace a torn baffle. I'm able to install the new baffle, but it keeps slipping off the inner drum. The sea clamp is as tight as I can get it. Can I get it too tight where the drum will crack? Should I be using a glue or a sealant between the drum and the baffle?

Its a little tricky but can be done. Can you remove the top panel of your washer?? 3 screws along the back lip and the entire top will slide back and off. theres a little black hose leading from the soap dispensor to the top of the outer tub assy. its only pushed into the tub and is real flexible, pull it out .you see through the maybe 2inch hole and see he inner basket. as you rotate the basket from inside with your hand the inner baffle(s) will line up to the hole and depending on date of manufacture. they might have put a small stainless screws in from behind to hold baffle in place,ifso remve the screws and the baffle (although a little tricky should slide toward the rear of machine to remove, and pull toward the front to reinstall

Need to replace a baffle that broke off . MED9800TKo model baffle broke off insde on the dryer drum

Remove the top panel to access the outside of the drum where the baffle securing screws are found. Remove the three hex-head screws from the rear flange of the dryer's top cover the lift the rear of the cover and slide it back so the tabs clear the catches on the bracket and remove the cover from the unit.

Turn the drum until the baffle screws are on top then remove the screws and the baffles. Install the new baffles then the top cover. Make sure that the tabs slide under the bracket catches when you reinstall the top cover. The top cover screws have nylon flat washers on them. Be sure to use these screws when you reinstall the top cover.

How to repair paddle inside drum paddle that fell off

To replace this "paddle" (It's callde a baffle), you'll need to access the outside of the tumbler (drum), by lifting the top.

Begin by removing the door. Remove the two hinge screws. You will then be able to rock the door and hinge out of the slot in the front panel. Next, remove the cover plates just opposite the hinges.

Now you can pull the front panel off the retaining clips and rock it downward, away from the rest of the cabinet. Once it clears the top, you can lift it off the bottom hooks. Just set it aside.

You will now see two screws (hex-head, 5/16 inch), just under the corners of the dryer top. Remove them and rotate the brackets that hook into the top. Removing the brackets will allow you to now swing the top upwards to expose the tumbler.

Just turn the tumbler until you can see the screw holes for the babble holding screws. You may get lucky and find the three baffle screws in the bottom of the cabinet. Re-install, check the others, and re-assemble the dryer in reverse order, and you're done!

2 dryer bars

The bars are called BAFFLES P/N: 12002559
They are attached by 4 screws through the drum. You must pop the top to reinstall the baffles. Take one of the baffles to the hardware store and buy some good fitting screws. Then pop the top 660ff1d.jpgand use a screwdriver to reattach them. Fairly easy to fix. IF you have the old ones. Do dry tennis shoes in there. Oopz LOL
