pilot flame is to high. how do I adjust the length of the flame?

Hi, on the gas valve its self, you will see a aluminum tube coming off of the valve. This is your pilot tube. On the valve, you will see the word pilot, next to a chrome cap or plug normally with a small arrow. Remove the cap and inside the hole will be a real small screw head. Takes a small screw driver to adjust them. Just turn it in or maybe out very slow until you reach the right height. Use a good flashlight. Don't worry, there is no danger when doing this. Pop the cap back in and your set!!

car is surging badly when accelerator is pushed. it's bucking real bad and idling rough

Have you yet put Fuel injector cleaner in your gasoline tank because if your fuel injectors get clogged up by using the lower 87 octane gasoline that the impurities would slowly over time clog all your fuel injectors to the point that only small percentage amounts of gasoling would be injected by the clogging.

water left in fabric dispenser after load


The dispensers work by the siphon principle. You load the softener and at the proper time, the machine diverts water to the softener cup raising the level. In the softener cup, there is a tube loosely covered with a cap. When the level in the softener cup is raised high enough, a siphon effect is started and the softener is pulled from the cup into the washer. This will continue until the water quits flowing and air gets under tha cap, breaking the siphon. The amount of water remaining in the cup is dependent on the level of the cap, and the amount of residual water remaining in the dispenser fill tube once the siphon effect is broken. You can see this effect for yourself: take a measuring cup and slowly pour water into the softener cup, raising the level above the max line. When the level gets high enough, the contents of the cup will dispense. You can remove the cover cap that is a part of the dispenser and clean it; it will help. Removing the entire tray and cleaning all of the tubes and the cap assembly will also help. The only other thing that can be done is to change the dispensing supply valve, as it sounds like there may be some leak by after the fabric softener is dispensed. Having residual water isn't really hurting anything. It's only water, and the machine has dispensed the softener! Try the cleaning part first as this usually corrects the issue, and then the repair technician if it still bothers you. For as much as the extnded warranty costs, you should be completely satisfied with your machine.
