Baffle came loose from drum...how do I

One baffle has come loose from from the drum. It was loose for a long time, now the screw is gone and the "snaps" on it will not hold it in place.
How do I gain access to the outside of the drum, to replace the screw that holds baffle secure. Do I remove front panels or back?

There is something in the drum housing between the drum and the house that is jamming the drum. how do i get into the drum housing to remove it?


You can remove one of the baffles inside the spin basket; that gives you a pretty good size opening. There is one screw that holds the baffle in place; when you remove that screw you should be able to slide the baffle and it will come out. Sometimes though, at the factory they might, or might not have, pushed a little tap that will make it difficult to slide the baffle. There is place for a second screw; make sure they did not install that second screw. I guess it all depends on which day your spin basket was put together whether or not they pushed the tab, or put the second screw. Good luck!

I left a screw in my jacket that got washed now the screw is lodged between the steel drum and plastic shell, you can hear it scraping when you spin the drum, how do i get to it and get it out


Try to remove one of the plastic baffles inside the spin basket. They are held in place by one phillips head screw. If you take that screw out you should be able to slide the baffle toward you and remove it. Sometimes, but not always, in manufacturing they move a little catch to keep the baffle from moving; in that case it will be hard to slide it. If you can get one baffle out, you will have a pretty good size opening to look for your screw.

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.

Baffles in washer


the new baffles arefairly easy to install, they go over the hole and then pull foward to lock into place.. the new bsaffle should also come with a screw to "lock" it, in place. in order to securethis screw you need to remove the top cover of the unit,(3 screws across theback) after removing the top youll see a black hose going directly into thetop of the tub prbably an inch or so . gently pull that hose out from thetub. It simply locks itself inplace.. after removing you can spin the inner drum around till thenew baffle is directly under the "hole" where you can now see a small hole inth eunderside of baffle to secure.. just remember to resecure that hose or youll have a flood on your hands

Replacing the drum baffle in kenmore elite he3t front loading washers


The baffle basket, I ordered from sears for my Kenmore Elite he3t washer was a "new" design but the screw holes lined up. My baffle basket did not come with the screw either. I took out the screw from an existing baffle basket and found something close. Test it in the baffle basket before you try to install it. Be careful not to drop the screw or bit.

To replace the baffle basket. Remove top of washer using a screwdriver with a T20 torque bit. There are three screws at the rear. The top slides back about an inch and lift up. Place aside. Then you will see a hose going into the drum. Ignore the clamp, just squeeze the end going into the drum and work it out. Now you need to insert the baffle basket in the drum through the front door. It is easiest to rotate the drum so you are inserting it on the bottom. It slides in with the small end toward you and you must pull it forward. Hold the drum for leverage. Now rotate the drum so the new baffle is on top. You need to line up the screw hole and screw in a small screw. Replace the hose and top of washer.

Good Luck...
