Do I have to take out the complete tub? Or can I leave the tub still inside but the front half taken off, witch I've done. The baffles are to tight to put in. No room to move them front or back.
Removing that large black rubber hose, only allows access to the 2 bolts. Do I have to remove those bolts at the rear of the tub? Do I have to remove the entire tub to replace the baffles?
I don't understand, I already have the front half of the tub off. the second half is still in the washing machine. I clearly have access to the tabs. My problem is there is no room to move the baffles front or back to lock in the tabs. Will it help if I send a picture?
I don't see how you can slide the baffles about 1/4" to remove them. The front & back of the inside tub have the baffles in so tight. Do I have to remove those 2 rear bolts from the bottom black hose opening. There are 2 of them on each baffle spot.
Thank you for using Just Answer. I will be glad to assist you in your answer. Think about safety when doing repairs, electric, water, gas, ect.
The baffles are located on the front tub. There is a screw on the outer side of the tub that hold the baffle from being able to slide out. Cane remove the top and the back panels of the washer to get them. Use a stubby screwdriver to remove the screws. The baffle will not slide out from the inside until you release the locking tab (also on the outer part of the tub as well). Then you should be able to slide the baffle from the inside of the tub to remove. Please give me a great rating if I was able to assist you. If not, please respond back for more information, if needed......Thanks
I know where the baffles are located. I have taken off the front half of the tub to have access to them and have removed the screw that holds them in place. I have 2 baffles that came off during a wash and the other was about ready too. The problem is that there isn't enough room to slide them at all to lock in the tabs. The baffles are wedged in so tight, at the front & back inside the tub.
Do I further have to disassemble the tub by removing the 2 bolts where I have access to from the large black rubber hose opening? Or, do I have to remove the entire tub to replace the baffles?
Thanks for using this service I am a different tech so please only rate my assistance. Please be logged in to rate my assistance when we are done. Rating 3-5 is good, but 1-2 is bad so talk with me first. I have done this job many times. Even though it shows a screw holding the baffles in place, there normally is never one there. This is actually pretty simple and easy to do. You just grab the back edge of the baffle and pull hard towards the front of the machine. The tabs will pop and the baffle will come out. The new ones just slide and lock in place. Typically takes about 5 minutes to do the whole job.
The problem is that there isn't enough room to slide them at all to lock or unlock the tabs. The baffles are wedged in so tight inside the tub at the front & back.
So do you do this job without any screw used? Is there enough room to slide the baffles in or out?
