These are the paddle bits that are inside the drum? If so I had the same problem and I found that the lugs that hold them to the drum were broken.

I fixed mine by using plastic cable ties (=tie-wraps) passed through the slots in the paddles and through holes in the inner drum. It's fiddly getting the ends back out of the space between the outer and inner drums - I used another tie-wrap bent into a loop and stuffed into a suitable hole to "catch" the end of the tie I was fitting. It's not a pretty solution but it works and it is almost free!

If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.

Thanks, D

Coins in my baffle

Usually not but if you get a thin blade screw driver, in the center of the baffle gently pry up the edge and wedge it under creating a gap to get the coins out. But be carefully because most of the times you can't get replacement baffles !!

One of the baffles is part way off and eating up clothes, but I can't seem to reattach it and am afraid to snap it off.

It would be better to try and remove the baffle as the machine should still work fine with only two baffles.
It sounds dangerous to be using the machine with a broken baffle. If you cannot remove the baffle safely, please call out a serviceman.

Baffles broke in front loading washer

You will need the screws to hold them in and unfortunatly to do them you have to split the 2 drums apart unless you can see where the screws mount on the new baffles, but usually they screw in from the outer side of the inner drum. A lot of work for such a small part.

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.

Fins where can i get new ones

These are called drum baffles. They can be found at Type in your model number and search for item #1058883. A set of three of them goes for about $34. It is cheaper to buy them in this quantity as a single baffle ranges in price from $22 to $34, depending on which website you go to. The baffles should have installation instructions with them. Of not, let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore 40922 front load

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.
