Had transmission changed in a kenmore 80 series. I found retaining ring on floor. The repair man said whirlpool part comes with a new ring attached. If he had forgotten to put it on the machine would make loud noises during operation. The machine seems to run fine. No unusual noises. Do you agree? Thank you for your response.
ANSWER Hello, Yes I agree. If he had left this ring off of the unit, the thurst bearing on the bottom of it, would fall off. Hope this helps.
