The replacement is part number WH49X10065.  It comes with a new apron and top.  The apron and top lock together so the top becomes a structural member.  I installed one on a coin-op about a year ago.  I got a callback a few months later.  The front apron was working fine but the back apron had sagged.  As far as I know there is no kit for the rear apron. An "adjustment" with a sledge hammer got them going temporarily until they could buy a new washer.
