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 !!
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.
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
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
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. RESECURE THE HOSE, reassemble the top and your done!
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.
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.
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
