Friends;
I cannot budge the partly broken Baffle in my Whirlpool Sport duet washer #Whirlpool WFW8400TW00. I have watched the youtube video, but no matter how hard I try to pull it toward the front of the washer, it won't budge. There is not mention of any screw that holds it in place, it just snaps in and out of position in the video, after straightening the clips...but I can't get mine to slide fwd. for removal! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I've changed a few in the past and they had screws. Are yours anything like the ones in the video?

First off, thank you for your quick reply.

They are exactly like the one in the 2nd video, which is the one that I watched, that doesn't seem to have any screws.

The video shows how it's done, but the baffle will not slide fwd., toward the front of the washer, I pulled it as hard as I can, no movement. Anyone have any ideas that will loosen it up, get it to budge?
Thanks again.

I gave up and called "Just Answer" and for $23 they told me to do it basically like like shown in the first video, replacing another type of baffle. There was no screw mentioned in the 2nd one which "That Guy" listed, but apparently they all have a screw attachment....... Anyway, I'll try that,
