Hi rowdyg923

Nope, they are for shipping, they hold the tub inplace while it is being shipped. if they are left in when you use the washer it will end up wrecking it.

I have an RYOBI 24V String Trimmer - RY24200. At the same time the head broke & stopped spinning, I heard something loose in the head. When I took the head apart I found 2 screws had come loose from...


This is a very late answer to your question, but I had exactly the same problem with the screws rattling around in the head. I took the casing apart very slowly because I figured there was a spring for the swivel mechanism that might fly out. The spring you describe lays in a groove on the casing piece that attaches to the shaft close to the head casing. You will see near the top of the head casing, a small, plastic pin that will sit in the end of this spring to hold it in place. Carefully set the head piece back into the shaft casing to prevent the spring from popping back out. I did this repair in about 10 minutes and I'm not even that technically adept.

My ricoh CL 3500 keeps getting a Y paper jam.


There is something stuck in it. A small piece of paper, paper clip.

A friend of mine was having the same problem with a similar printer. I told him there was something in there. I took a look and found that a paper clip some how fell into the unit and was in a tight spot. Once removed the printer worked great.

It could be as simple as a little piece of paper, or a bit hard like a piece of paper wrapped around a moving part inside.

The odds are one of the capacitors popped. Look around the circuit boards for this bad capacitor. It should be deformed and stick out like a sore thumb. Radio Shack or some local electronic supply place should carry replacements.

Back door latch broke cant open back door where can i buy the part and the name of the part


I just bought the part last week for 61.76 from the dealership. It takes about two hours to unscrew the strap from the inside, remove trim from the inside starting at the top, sides and bottom. Remove the license plate from the outside of the hatch. Next remove the 8 bolts (10mm)and 3 white plastic tabs that snap on from the large black plate and move to the side (you don't need to disconnect the wires). From here you can reach around the rear window unit and open the door by moving the latch or pulling the cable. You should remove the 4 nuts that hold on the rear window assembly and move the to reach two nuts which holds the center portion of the trim piece you are trying to remove. There should be a plastic piece covering the cable and latch, it just pops off by pulling it straight out. There are three plastic tabs in the corners and one screw (lock for the hatch) that holds on the license plate assembly to the rear hatch along with two white plastic tabs which are located at the bottom two holes for license plate. These plastic tabs come in from the front. Use pliers to squeeze the together and push. You will need to disconnect the license plate lamp wire connector from the left side. The license plate assembly should drop away. Two screws hold on the latch, remove and replace and reverse proceedure.

My machine starting moving backwards.


I had this same problem. Something is wrong with the mechanism that moves the feed dogs. There's a slide switch on the back of the machine that raises and lowers the dogs. Unfortunately, most of the mechanism is made of plastic, so there may be a 'stripping' issue -- something's not catching correctly. I took off the throat plate and cleaned everything out (lots of lint in there!). Remove the bobbin, thread and needle. This way you can run the machine and see how things are moving inside. Notice the long screw/rod hanging in the back. This is supposed to rest in an indentation on an arm just below it. Mine had somehow worked its way out of that 'cup', so the dogs weren't moving correctly. Once I got that piece back in place, everything worked fine. Good luck!

Kenmore 90 series mod.# 110.28912791


OK The Kenmore 90 series mod.# 110.28912791 is not hard to work on. The problem on the washer was no agitation or spin.First I took the agitater out of the tub,and put them aside. Then I tilted the washer to get to the bottom of the washer. Inbetween the motor and I gueuss pump there are three pieces that need to be replaced called (motor coupler). I disconnected ac cord from wall outlet, the cold and hot water hoses. I disconnected the wires at the motor one piece and one two wire connection pluss move a small canister with two wires out of the way. Removed three bolts bottom of pump pulled pump and motor out, you have to turn back and forth a little and the whole assembly comes out. there are two screws that hold two clips at side of motor and motor come off easy. You will notice there is a black rubber disc with a plastic white three prong piece on each side. (Remove those pieces install same way ( you need to use something to hit the center of the plastic till it sets in, install black rubber piece six wholes three prongs on one side. Install second white pronged piece on the pump side and also hit center to set. Place pump over motor looking to (make sure) the top three prongs go inside three holes left in the black rubber piece. Once you line and they go inside line the motor to where the for rubber legs sat before put clips back on install the two screws, install shaft back in moving the motor side to side install the three bolts, hook wires plugs under the motor put canister with two wires back hook the two hoses back next to motor, stand washer back up, install agitater back, hook hot and cold hoses back plug back in and test. parts at sears (one hours time start to finish taking your time) keep track of all parts. Make diagram if you need to believe me it was easy and washer works great now. By the way when I took the parts off they did not look broken but were bad because now I have a working washing mashine. ( Good Luck, Wyatt Earp )

Not spinning properly


You will need to replace the inner basket and front outer tub assembly. Likely, the spider on the inner basket (drum bracket) has broken which is causing it to be loose and rubbing on the inside of the outer tub. This can be verified by checking for excessive play of the inner basket (hold the front of the inner basket and check for play by moving it up and down).
It's not a cheap repair unfortunately. Be sure to always use a small amount (2 tablespoons for a full load) of HE (high efficiency) detergent to prevent future build up which could cause corrosion of the tub spider.

Washer LG Model WD-8013F Noisy & vibrates badfly when spinning


hi all you poor owners of this heap of junk, i have one too with the same problems, the shaking and moving around the bathroom was stopped by welding a 1/2 inch long piece of 1 &1/2 inch dia pipe to a 2 inch square flat plate of steel then putting double sided sticky tape beetween the plate and the floor
where you want the front rubber legs to sit, this stops it from running around the floor but it still needs to adjusted to have the
same on the front two legs to stop the shaking.by leaning the machine back a bit also helps to stop it leaking so bad while filling, it is only from the condersation from the hot water going in and the poor design of the soap drawer not allowing the water to run back into the washer which can be fixed by cutting the lip off
the bottom wher the drawer slides in then running a bead of silcone in the crack between the front cover and the inside piece
then another one on the front edge to run the water back into the washer. hpoe this helps. bryan.

Kenmore washer shakes violently during spin cycle


syrny,

Not sure what you did, exactly. First, does the machine shake when spun empty...and then with water only? If so, you have probably failed to tighten something or misaligned something. Go over your work.

No shakes? Rearrange your load. You may have a pair of heavy wet jeans which is throwing the whole thing out of kilter. It only takes about a half pound of sodden clothing to do this.
