Ordered a new rear bearing, and inner tub only to notice baffles/vanes don't come on new inner tub :wallbash: .Baffles have to be ordered. The parts list is showing a screw that goes thru the baffle. My question is since there are no baffles at all, can I snap the new vanes in without disassembling the washer again :woot:

It can be done from inside the wash basket without disassembling the washer, but it's not easy. The edges of the wash basket where the vanes attach is razor sharp, so be careful and wear safety gloves.

To answer your question, if there are no visible screws going through the vanes, they just snap into place.
