Can I purchase just the washplate rubber gasket? It is an older machine that does not justify paying for the entire washplate assembly.
Answer Hello Aldo,
We will be happy to investigate the part availability for you if you could please re-post with the model number from your units' I.D. tag. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
Do I have to replace the washplate? Can I just replace the rubber gasket around the plate? is the gasket available? Thank You.
Answer MHJ, You didn't mention your issue, but no, the rubber gasket on the bottom of the washplate 285903 and or agitator W10076190 is not available as a separate component. The part number you supplied, is not for a WTW6200SW0 and will not work properly on the model number you supplied. Thanks and Good Luck
how to take the cabinet out to replace the washplate(outer) thans
Answer Helmer, You don't or can't remove the cabinet, access to the tubs is through the washer top panel. Did you not recieve our previous response dated 12/24/11 ? The information in that post is the proper procedure from the service manual for your style Kenmore washer. Thanks
how to replace washplate (outer) i have to open the body please how
Answer Helmer, Here's some help :" Raising the Washer Top to the Service Position The washer top is hinged at the back edge. It does not have to be completely removed for access to components inside the tub. 1. Disconnect power from the washing machine. 2. If the unit is close to the wall at the back, pull the washing machine forward a foot or two. 3. Gently pry the emblem from the front trim. 4. Remove the T-20 Torx screw holding the washer top to the cabinet latch. 5. Slide the washer top forward, approximately 1/2 inch, to clear the cabinet latch.
6. Raise the front of the washer top up and prop it high enough to allow full access to the contents of the tub. Removing Components in the Tub 1. Disconnect power from the washing machine. 2. Raise the washer top to the service position. 3. Disconnect the fresh water inlet hose from the tub ring. 4. Unsnap the tabs that secure the tub ring to the tub. Lift the tub ring from the tub. 5. Using a flat bladed screwdriver, release the three (3) tabs to separate the balance ring from the basket. 6. Using two (2) flat bladed screwdrivers, 90°
apart, in the notches provided, separate the dome from the outer wash plate. 7. Remove the six (6) 3/8” bolts securing the outer wash plate to the universal joint. Remove the outer wash plate from the basket. 8. Once the outer wash plate is removed, the inner wash plate can be lifted out of the basket." Thanks and Good Luck
