Hi there,

the rubber protection is the door boot and it may not be on the door correctly, which is preventing the door from closing correctly. check the door boot and make sure that it's sitting on the door correctly and there are no tears or breaks in it. also, check the door and make sure it shuts correctly. this should solve your problem. if all else fails, replace the door boot.

How spring goes on deflector shield

Please wear eye protection for your safety before performing this task since there is a spring that is under load! Take a pair of side cutters and cut the one way lock washer located on the font side of the shaft. (Facing Towards Front of Tractor). It should be black in color. Take a pair of pliers or vise-grips and pull and twist the rear part of the shaft that goes through the plastic deflector and work the plastic deflector up and down while you work the shaft out. As you're working the deflector shaft out, take caution as the spring will pop out of place. To install new deflector, place spring between plastic deflector and align it up to the hinge openings on the deck. Make sure the "L" tab is inserted in the open slot of the plastic deflector. Tilt the plastic deflector towards the back side and start to insert the deflector shaft from the back and wedge it in about close to half way in. Take the front part of the spring that has the rubber tab (to protect deck paint) and twist it counter clockwise so the rubber tab is pointing towards the left side of the deck. Push down on the plastic deflector assembly and continue to work the deflector shaft all the way through to the font hinge opening. Once the shaft has passed all the way through the hinge opening, take a 9mm or 10mm deep well quarter inch socket and tap the new one way lock washer that can be purchased at your local hardware or Home Depot location. Use a soft mallet hammer to do this so you won't damage the chrome finish on the socket. Good Luck and Let Me Know How it Turns Out.

Lg washer leaving black greasy marks on clothes

This is usually to do with fabric softener. Dilute it with more water. The fabric softener makes clots, and these make the marks on your clothing.

Hope it helps

Hi, can you teach me on how to use jobos dye. Appreciate if you could the complete step by step... Thanks

For this project, we will be making a basic sunburst design on a t-shirt.

  1. First, wash the -shirt in order to remove any possible dirt and prepare it for dye absorption. Tie-dying is best done on damp fabric.
  2. Cover our work area with newspaper to protect it from any spills, and assemble all your tools.
  3. Wear rubber gloves to prepare the dye. Carefully follow the manufacturer's instructions provided on the package.
  4. Our particular fabric dye, Venus, for example, calls for the powder to be dissolved in boiling water to get the best, fastest results possible. So fill the large container with lukewarm water, bring to boil, and pour in the dye, starting with the lightest color if you are using more than one color.
  5. While the water is coming on a boil, lay the t-shirt flat on your work area. Grab the center of the t-shirt with your thumb and index finger, and lift it up. Run your other hand down the cloth, twisting the fabric as you gather it together tightly.
  6. Wrap one rubber band around the gathered t-shirt, right below the spot where you lifted. Then, wrap a few more rubber bands, about one to two inches apart from each other. Feel free to make up your own spacing.
  7. Once you're satisfied with the rubber band placement, immerse the entire t-shirt in the first color dye. Boil the t-shirt for 10 minutes , stirring constantly. Then, stir 4 level tablespoons of salt into the mixture for each gallon of water used. Boil for another 20 minutes, stirring constantly.
  8. Remove the t-shirt and rinse in cold running water. Wring out the garment until water runs almost clear.
  9. For designs requiring more than one color, repeat steps 3 to 8, using colors in order from lightest to darkest.
  10. When you have finished dying the garment, remove rubber bands and lay t-shirt flat on your workspace. Place a towel over the still-damp garment, and iron it flat.

I have a Michael Kors watch with a white rubber wristband that has turned dirty and dark in less than a year. I am quite unhappy with how it looks, but very happy with the watch. What to do???

Thanks for contacting FixYa.
  1. The easiest thing to try is a regular pencil eraser. It's perfect for removing marks and smudges from rubber and works like a charm! Use white erasers as the pink ones may leave pink smudges.
  2. If a regular pencil eraser doesn't work, try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser or similar product. Simply moisten the sponge and rub it over the stained area.
  3. If that doesn't do it, grab your safety goggles and move on to the next step.
  4. Mix four parts water with one part bleach in a cup or small bowl. You will need less than ¼ cup of the finished solution, so only mix a small amount.
  5. Wearing eye protection, moisten a white cloth with the mixture. Do not use a colored cloth. You will likely transfer color from the cloth to the watch band and make your problem worse.
  6. Carefully dab the bleach against the stain on the watch band. Don't over apply the bleach or leave it for more than a few seconds or you may damage the rubber.
  7. If needed, increase the strength of the solution by adding a bit more bleach. Do this in small increments to expose the rubber watchband to as little bleach as necessary.
  8. Blot and repeat as necessary if you see improvement.
  9. Once the stain is removed, rinse the band well with water to remove all the bleach residue.
  10. If the stain remains, mix the Rit Dye Remover with a small amount of water to make a paste.
  11. Spread the paste onto the stained area and allow it to set for a minute.
  12. Rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth.
  13. Repeat if necessary.
Additional Tips and Advice
  • Once you have the band clean, treat it with Armor-All wipes made for vinyl car interiors. This easy tactic will help protect the band from stains and smudging. Repeat every few weeks for maximum effect.
  • Be careful with acetone on rubber watch bands. It can start to break down the rubber and make the band feel "sticky." Once done, this can be difficult to reverse.
Best regards.

The rubber casing is firstly to insulate, next to give the cable more structure. If you have only a minor break normal electrician tape (PVC) or self vulcanizing rubber-tape with PVC over it will prevent any future shorts. You could also use large heat shrink tubing, the kind with glue inside. Electrical supply stores (wholesalers) will have those. If you feel you want a better fix any rubber hose with appropriate internal diameter from a auto shop will do.

The washer is not filling with water. Once the water is dispensed into the washer, water is not visible and the clothes do not get wet until half way through the washing cycle.


When the washer wont fill at all then the issue is either with a bad water inlet valve or clogged inlet screen. Please check the water line for any clogs/obstructions and try cleaning the inlet. Hope you understand that you might require water inlet valve replacement if the problem is still unsolved after cleaning. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

As a preamble when you have expelled all the water from the cylinders and you again add fresh oil. For this first bit you will only need a minimum of oil 2 litres (4 pints). Turn the engine on the starter again for a minute or two with the plugs out. This will allow the oil to help flush any water from the passageways. Remove and discard this flushing oil and now fill the engine wit he required amount of new oil. Put a tiny amount of grease (Copper based anti seize will do well) on the first few threads of each plug. Put a piece of cloth down each plug socket and turn the cloth counter clockwise, this will ensure the cloth is not drawn into the cylinder whilst it cleans out the threads. Hold the top of the plug in a length of rubber hose and then post the plug down into its socket. Turn the hose, again counter clockwise, and feel for the thread stepping; this process will help prevent cross threading. Just after a 'step' start to turn the rubber hose clockwise to engage the thread and then continue to twist it in. Holding the plug in length of rubber hose ensures that if the plug begins to become cross threaded no damage will occur as the plug either rotates in the hose or the hose twists on itself. Plugs are fitted in tight tolerance threads to prevent gas blow by or plug ejection when running; as a consequence they do not slide in as easily as a standard bolt and always a bit on the tight side. Once you are happy that a plug is engaged pull off the hose and inspect the top of the plug just to make a final check that the plug lies central to its socket (if cross threaded it will be off centre). Tighten down to the specific torque settings. Re attach the high tension plugs in the right order.

Lg front load washing machine does not seem to get the clothes clean. I think it is because it uses so little water??? How can it get clothes clean with just a few cupfulls of water? All controls and...

I have run into this problem several times with LG washers. On one job LG had us replace every electronic componet that had anything to do with the water fill and the problem still was not resolved. The electronic control determines how much water to fill depending on the load size, so smaller loads give you less water, with the same amount of soap. Leaving clothes in the washer overnight, and leaving the door closed does contribute to mold and fungi growth in the washer. The customer tried different brands of soaps and different amounts of soap. He left the door open after usage to allow the unit to dry out, and tried different cleaners, to clean out the sludge build up. We determined that there just is not enough water to thoroughly clean the clothes. The sales store had to replace the washer with another brand. There is an ongoing class action lawsuit against Lg for this problem. Do an online Search for lg washer lawsuit. By the way, we don't have a problem with clothes not getting clean with the Whirlpool Super Capacity Duet Front-Loading Washers. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
