its a little tricky but can be done. Can you remove the top panel of your washer?? 3 *****s 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 ***** in from behind to hold baffle in place,ifso remve the ***** and the baffle (although a little tricky should slide toward the rear of machine to remove, and pull toward the front to reinstall heres a replacement number for hte baffle 8182233, incase youbreak it youll need to replace

During spin cycle the washer makes a loud thumping noise. Not a clanging/sharp noise. When I manually turn drum it sounds like something is loose inside. Like a ball may sound inside drum as it turns.


Is it a front loader? You may have something stuck between the tubs or it may be a broken "paddle" One of the plastic baffles that move the clothes around in the tub. they should all be tightly against the tub.

The bar things inside the dryer drum (there are three of them) one has come almost all the way off. and one is loose. looks like its screwed from the other side.. cant figure out how to get inside. it...


Unplug the dryer. Open the door and remove a total of 4 screws, 2 on each side of the door opening. Two screws each hold a clip in place and the other two hold the dorr hinges. When you remove the screws on the door hinge, it shouldn't fall off, but be prepared for it to do just that. The door should come off by lifting the hinges upward and pulling the door away. The remaining part of the front panel is held on by 2 clips located toward the top sides of the u-shaped front panel. Pull the panel forward to release the clips and lift the panel upward to clear the two tabs and slots on the bottom. On each side of the cabinet, there is a blackish colored metal bracket that holds the top in place. Remove the fasteners that holds these brackets and remove the brackets by sliding them upward and away. The top should now lift up. You now have access to the fasteners that hold the baffles onto the drum. If , for some reason, you should want to remove the baffles, carefully note the different sizes of the baffles and what order they came off.

Here is the parts list for the drum of your dryer:

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!

How do I get change out of the washer? It went


I think you are talking about the three tub baffles that are attached to the inner tub. You can remove the baffles, usually one or two screws hold these into the tub. If it only has one screw then the opposite end is clipped into the tub. Most coins however get flushed down into the drain pump filter. We call this a coin catcher as that is what it is designed to do. Remove the front bottom panel, 3 to 4 screws on the bottom. Put a towel down under the pump to catch about a half gallon of water. There is a large round plastic screw that you unscrew from the pump assembly. The screw is three to 4 inches in diameter and almost dead center on the bottom front of the washer. Once you have unscrewed the unit, pull it out and clean out everything you see. Look inside and make sure there is nothing in the hose or the pump inlet hole. Reinstall and test for leaks before you put the panel back on. I recommend you clean this out every 6 months. Good Luck,

Inside paddle fell off


Depending on the type of door the dryer has, is how you approach the access of these dryers. Mostly though you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top.Rotate the drum around and reach inside the drum. Re-attach that baffle.

I've had a model DLG330RAW gas dryer for 5 years. About 2 weeks ago it started making a sound as if coins were in the barrel. It wasn't the clothes buttons, zippers, etc as it will still make the noise...

My affinity washer (front load ATF6000ES) is leaking detergent


are you using he detergent?. if what you see on floor is pure detergent then look at dispenser housing for cracks. remove drawer, open, depress lever in back and pull out, to see inside housing. If the screw or mounting for the loose paddle (baffle) broke and slammed housing in some way then you would also have a hole in the tub. You can easily remove top, 3 screws in back to check this. If tub is broke, buy new machine!
baffles are usually attached with screws from outside basket, requiring removal from tub
