Tip & How-To about Washing Machines

Is Washer Leaking From Soap Dispenser Drawer? Try this first!

There are a lot of times that some problems can be fixed very easily by the owner themselves and at no cost at all. This is one of them.
Some people experience that the soap drawer leaks from the front of the soap drawer dispenser on certain cycles, this can be caused by a couple of things but could just be a very simple fix which you should try first before calling a engineer.

MACHINE LEANING SLIGHTLY FORWARD: This is the main tip and FIRST CHECK anyone should do before going on to the next tips. If a machine is not level and leaning forward the water that is in the drawer while filling will be forced forward and can easily get past the drawer and leak down the front of the machine especially if the dispenser housing is slightly warped. If this is your experience then first thing to do is to check the machine is level. Adjust the front feet on the machine to raise the front making it level or slightly leaning back. This will cause the water to be forced to the back of the soap drawer dispenser allowing it to go in to the machine and not out the front of the drawer. Make this the first thing you do as it can be as simple as that.

If this has not solved your problem then check for:

EXCESSIVE WATER PRESSURE: Some people have very good water pressure in their areas (normally cold supply), if this is the case and you have a cut off valve in your system at the filling pipes (red&blue pipes, sometimes red&grey) then you just need to figure out which water is being pumped in at that time and then turn that valve off slightly (NOT ALL THE WAY!) only slightly and this will slow the amount of water entering the machine. This will cause the machine to take a bit longer to fill so the wash will take slightly longer to complete. So please bear this in mind if you have adjusted the water pressure! It won't be a new fault!

I have an hyundai i30 slx, it has now been to the garage 5 times, and they still cant find the fault. 8000k on clock 2 years old Problem just stalls in traffic, on hot days over 30c in heavy traffic the car just dies. Air con is on. It starts every time but this is getting ridiculous and one of these days someone is going to hit me. They have replaced throttle position sensor and loads of other sesors but this is still happening. Any ideas ?


If you are the original owner, check the "lemon" laws in your state regardiing excessive maintenance to a new vehicle.

Then, I suggest that you take it to another dealership, this in the hopes that they have the one person that will go the extra mile to find the problem.

This sounds like either a ground issue with the computer, or possibly components of the computer /ignition system.

You could have them replace the ignition switch, it controls everything and if it's got a single weak spot in it, it could concievably vibrate to a point of causing an interruption of power, easily fixed by just starting it again. These are subjected to a lot of heat, work by just sliding the connecting contacts against each other to provide a circuit and to provide the power necessary to operate the ignition and accessories. the more things turned on, the more heat in the switch. A lot of heat can help them to overheat as they do carry some heat themselves and have been known to actually burn up and fall apart inside.

good luck

Head gasket blown. What is approximate cost to


    Considerations
  1. Many internal engine problems, such as a blown head gasket, cracked head or cracked piston, can be repaired without having to replace an entire engine.
  2. Potential
  3. While taking the time to replace an engine may seem labor-intensive and costly, it will add years to a vehicle's life and will save a car owner from the cost of having to buy a new car.
  4. Benefits
  5. Taking a car to a mechanic and replacing an engine with a used engine can cost between $1,000 to $2,000 for parts and labor.
  6. Solution
  7. Car owners interested in replacing their engines with new ones can expect to pay anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000.
  8. Speculation
  9. For those interested in doing the engine replacement themselves, purchasing specialized tools needed for the job is a cost to consider in addition to the price of a replacement engine.
