Simple. Found my torx bits, removed the screws, removed the old handle, placed the new handle in position, replaced screws.

This happened because I failed to wait for the click on the machine before I opened the door. It's a front loader and it needs time to drain the water before you open the door.

Bent slide on pedestal

  • Customer: Donald from Greenfield, WI
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 3 of 6 people found this instruction helpful
Note that the problem was with the pedestal, not the washing machine. In the process of attaching the two units together, the drawer in the pedestal is removed. When I tipped the assembly up, the slide slid out and locked horns with an object, bending the slide. The slide is an easy replacement. Just one screw holds it in place. A slot in the slide mates with a tab to hold the back side of the slide in place.

The screws unnecessary and we easily figured out how to install.

First, I unscrewed the two screws on the broken handle, using an allen wrench. Then, I screwed on the new handle in it's place. The new grey handle is much lighter in color than the original charcoal grey of the washer, but it blends well and works perfectly.

Broken baffle in tub

  • Customer: Donna from Salineville, OH
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
First I removed the remain remaining baffle using a screw driver to gently pry and break the plastic tabs which held it to the drum. I replaced all three in the event that the balance could be affected if I were to only replace the broken ones. The replacements slid in and locked into place easily but I did have to gently apply pressure with a large-shanked screwdriver using the rear of the drum to push off of. The hardest part was being able to see what I was doing inside of the dark tub! I needed an extra hand to hold a flashlight. I then discovered the worth of my black and Decker light bar which has a magnetic base! Perfect for the job!
I agree with an earlier post that there is no need to suffer the effects of a washer with a missing baffle when you can replace it so easily.

one of the baffles came off

  • Customer: Tim from Kent, WA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

The design of the baffle assembly must be a little off. Seems that the baffles must come loose at the screw and it tends to cause the attachment nubs to wear. The parts were delivered in no time, had the screws to replace the old screws (which was cool) all in all, the install went without a hitch. Plus, the site is great, easy to identify parts and the order process is a piece of cake. Maybe your folks could come over and redesign our parts site!

Baffle broke off

The baffles do push thru slots in the drum and by then pulling them towards you, it moves slightly locking them into place. There are screws supplied and they could be installed to aid in the baffles not coming off as ofter but this cannot by done by the average person for you would need special tools and allot of fixet smarts and patience. My washer can be set at a higher spinout speed and this does save on drying costs but the trade off is the baffles break off way too often. There are metal tabs in the drum that are raised up and snap behind tabs on the underside of the baffles as you slid them towards you install them. If you rebend these tabs up with a longnose pliers twice as high as they are, they will have more holding force, keeping the baffles from coming off as often. In my opinion, the baffles should have been designed to slide backwards to lock them in place, not foward. If you look at how they are shaped, they natually have pressure pushing them towards the back of the drum in the spin cycle which just contributes to the problem of them coming off in the first place.
