Ok so I will be ordering a walking foot next week but have no idea which one of these I need. I can't find a specific answer in my manual either.

I have a Kenmore 385.16231301

Here is the link to my options:

Measuring the Shank

  • Measure the shank with the presser foot lowered. The shank is the distance between the bottom of the foot and the screw. The measurement on a low shank machine is three quarters of an inch and on a high shank machine is one and one quarter inches.
