how do i replace the door seal on my maytag HE washer

you will have to remove the door screws at the hinges, lift and remove the door off of the unit, remove the opposite screws and remove the front panel, remove the screws/clips holding the top secure at the left and right top corners, remove the 4 screws for the dispenser bezel, lift and prop the top up. The door gasket simply presses into the front palstic trim, while the rear of the gaslet is held onto the lip of the tub with a spring and wire. The spring and wire can be rolled off. the drain hose at the bottom of the boot will need to be removed too. Installing the boot is simply the reverse, but using a spring hook tool to stretch the spring to the loop of hte retaining wire.

How do I clean the trap filter inside my Electrolux Front loader

Good Morning Deanna - Sounds like you are speaking about the Coin Trap. Below are some basic troubleshooting steps you may wish to follow to clean the trap:
· Unplug the unit.
· Remove the bottom front access panel. There are two screws one on right and one on the left towards the bottom of the front panel.
· Now that the panel is removed look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.
· Clean the drum out with as much water as possible that you can remove and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out of the bottom of the drum and onto the floor.
· At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.
· Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.
· Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards.
Hope this information proves to be helpful!

My in-sink-erator model 5-81 is just over 2 years old and is leaking from the sides whether it's running or not. Is there anything I can do or do I need to contact a professional>

Find out exactly where leak is coming from.
You say water is coming from the side... is that where the pipe connects? Then take apart pipe and reassemble pipe using instructions below, and use rectorseal on joints as described below..
Is water coming from where dishwasher connects to disposal? Then tighten the clamp.
Is water coming from top where disposal connects to sink? Run paper towel around top to check for moisture, and then use steps below to dissemble disposal and re-install same disposal.
Is water coming from a rusted hole in disposal. Then replace disposal using steps below:

Here are the disposal steps:
When I worked apartment maintenance, we replaced disposal with same brand disposal.
That way we didn't have to change out sink basket or change pipes.
How to: Disconnect p-trap and tailpiece going into disposal.
Rotate connector disk clockwise that holds disposal to sink basket.
Before installing new disposal.
Attach electric wire to new disposal.
Attach dishwasher tube to new disposal. Knock out plug inside dishwasher opening.
Push new disposal up into place, and attach to old sink basket with new connector disk.
Use new connector washer.
Re-assemble tubular pipe.


If this is your home, you want new sink basket that comes with new disposal because it looks shiny and new.
Buy a tub of plumbers putty also.
Remove old sink basket and clean opening.
Put finger-size roll of plumbers putty around sink opening, and then push new strainer basket into plumbers putty.
Tighten basket from below, wipe away excess putty around sink opening.
Install new disposal as described above.


Tips for tubular pipes:
When taking apart tubular pipes, start at p-trap and take apart as few pieces as needed to do job.
On image below, loosen both upper and lower nuts, trap falls loose, and then work on disposal.
Any tubular drain pipe that gets moved while working under sink needs to be disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled.
Metal pipes have rubber washer >> always use new rubber washers.
Plastic pipes have plastic washers > plastic washers can be cleaned and re-used.
Plastic washers have flat side that goes toward nut, tapered side away from nut.


When reassembling tubular pipe, we use rectorseal on washers and joints.
Apply good amount on washer just before pushing washer in place and attaching nut.
Rectorseal will ensure tubular drain pipes won't leak.

take a screwdriver and push it in below the door at the top of the bottom panel, near each end of the panel, there is a springclip to pry on that that releases the panel and it will fold out and then lift off. then you can get access by removing a few screws.
