Ok thanks, ***** ***** need to remove the top of the machine, there are a few screws in the back on the lid, then once they are out you need to pry the lid back, then it will lift off, there you should be able to see how to remove the old paddles and re install the new ones;-)
I will stick with you until this is fixed and working as it should.
PLEASE RATE KINDLY AT THIS TIME, your question will NOT close or TIME OUT ;-)
No additional cost to you to rate.
Thank you Kathryn, and have a great day!
