Owners Manual says the FABRIC SOFTENER DISPENSER (part # 8528278) should have a "BLUE" LOCKING RING which is not referenced or pictured with the replacement part information. Please let me know if the locking ring comes withe the dispenser or has to be oreder separately?
Answer Mike, at one point there were two different softner dispensers. Apparently the manufacturer has substituted the dispenser with the locking ring to the dispenser without the locking ring. " PART INFORMATION Choose this manufacturer-approved fabric softener dispenser for your residential washer. Designed to fit your product perfectly. This fabric softener dispenser replaces the existing dispenser in your washer.
•To mount the dispenser, snap it into place on the top of your washer's agitator.
•Installing the dispenser requires no tools." You'll be fine with the dispenser, either way. Thanks and Good Luck
