How to replace baffle inside tumbler


some baffles have a screw at the far end inside the drum. remove screw and push baffle to remove. If you dont have that type of baffle then you would have to open the top cover and tilt back. You will be able to see the screws that hold the baffles. some tops have screws in the back to remove top. Some have clips in the front that would need to be push in with a small spatula. Good luck. I dont know if your able to post pictures with your question, it would really help.

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!

I have a Maytag Neptune TL washer that won't drain. I took the front panel off and detached the hose from the pump and there were several coins in there. I removed the coins, reattached everything and...


For the FAV6800A or FAV9800A tumbler removal.

The Service manual has the procedure starting on page 37 for the tumbler removal.

It’s not difficult to remove the manual doesn’t call out the Torx driver size required for tumbler removal. You will need a number 20 Torx driver to remove the Torx screw for tumbler removal. I would get a long Number 20 Torx driver for this. See page 37 of the Service Manual for tumbler removal. Looks worse than it is.

The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
When I did a recent Outer Tub Bearing replacement I found $1.78 in coins after removing the wash basket. Gotta check those pockets....:)


I have a post around somewhere of my diy Sump Screen I put in my FAV6800AW to protect the drain pump impeller from coins and other stuff from breaking the impeller or causing clogs. I'll look for the post or repost the pic's.........D*ick

Inside tumbler is loose - how do you tighten


If the tumbler is loose and you can move it from side to side the bearings in the rear of the drum may be going bad. The bearings aren't an expensive part, the job is just time consuming because you need to remove the outer casing of the dryer and take the drum out. The sides of the dryer stay together the front should come straight off and if the top doesn't come straight off it will tip back on hinges so the wires stay intact. You may need two people to replace the bearings once you get the drum off because they are generally screwed in from inside the drum.

I am unable to reach the paper from the top of the dryer where the lint filter is inserted.The dryer now makes a grinding type noise when it is turned on. Can you tell me how to reach the paper and remove it

Broken tumbler belt


Slide a putty knife or other thin object between the top and front panels a couple inches in from either side. Press in and release the two spring clips holding the top panel and at the same time lift it up and lean it back. Remove the screws inside the front corners holding the front panel on. Place the new belt around the drum in about the same position as the old one was. Remove the lower rear panel to access pulleys. place belt around the motor pulley. Stretch the idler arm over and place belt around pulley. Reassemble.

Loud Grinding Noise when Tumbler Rotates


Ok, these GE's sometimes have a problem with the front guides bearings going bad, and then the drum starts to eat into the top of the door hole and sides. That is probably what is making your noise. Before you spend a lot of time fixing something that cant be fixed, open the dryer door and look up in each top corner of the opening. Look to be sure the drum hasnt eaten its way through that area. If so, scrap it, because it will eat your clothes badly, and the front panels are to expensive. If not, UNPLUG YOUR MACHINE PLEASE, then standing facing the dryer, open the door, and remove the two screws that are in the top of the door housing area (not the door itself, these would be up by where I told you to look for damage). These screws hold down the top. After removing these screws, lift up on the cabinet top, and pull GENTLY towards you until the top clears the console guide posts in the top rear. After removing the top, inside the cabinet, on either side and at the top, you will see a phillips head screw that holds the front to the cabinet. Remove these screws, and fold the front towards you slowly, removing any wires that may be holding up the swing out (i.e. door switch, light wires, etc., be sure you remember the way the wires reattach). When you look at the top of where the drum rides, you will see a plastic ring with smaller like plastic flat peices that the drum rides in. More than likely, you will have to replace both parts. The ring separates in the center, and is replacable (you should only have to replace the top half). The drum guides are the smaller plastic type guides that just slide in. Reassembly is reverse. Let me know if you need further help. Jim
