SOURCE: Water Leakage Under Front Load Washer

most likley cause of your problem is the grey bellows has a tear in it. Inspect the bellows to check for tears. Or you can remove the lower panel and run the washer and look for the leak that way. Im sure it is a tear in the belows. Not a diffacult part to replace if you are mechanicly inclined. Good luck.

SOURCE: rubber door seal mouldy

Wouldn't normallyexpect a few mould spots to leave that bad a smell, so likely you've got two distinct issues.

Starting with the water trapped in the seal: Open the door and very carefully slip your fingers into the seal where the water is gathering (to stop your hand getting trapped between the drum and the outer casing, put your other hand inside the drum and push it up out of the way - just be careful not to let it spring back too fast).

At the very lowest point,of the space inside the seal, either at the very front or the very back (so tucked into the corner between the floor of the seal and it's front or back wall), you'll find a little drainage slot. Once you've cleared the inevitable blockage from this slot, your seal problems should vanish.

If the foul smell is coming from inside the machine, the problem is likely to be grey sludge inside the works of the machine. This is usually caused by modern detergents not being quite as good at working at 30 degrees as they claim to be. The answer is to run a cycle every now and then with no laundry, detergent, or conditioner in the machine, on the longest, hottest programme the machine will support. This should be sufficient to dissolve the rotting sludge and pump it away down the drain.

SOURCE: Cant lock the end rails

Before you lock the bottom of the playard, you need to pull all the way up on the two side rails, they will form a slight arch, and the button will click into place. Then push down on the bottom rails.

Three more seals. One on the shift shaft, another under the water pump and one more at the bottom of the engine on the main drive shaft. There is also a large o - ring on the carrier. Chances are the shift shaft seal is leaking.

Bilge pump on 1996 nitro bass boat inop


Check to make sure the fuse is good and you have power going to the switch and then to the wires (brown for positive and black for negative) in the bilge area using a 12 volt tester. If you have power to the brown wire while grounded to the black wire then the pump will need to be cleaned, have the impeller replaced or replace the pump. The pump is located in the rear compartment attached to a board mounted to the inside bottom of the boat at the center near the transom.

Need to change steering unit 1987 Bayliner cuddy


I have a 1988 Bayliner with Power Steering. If you are asking about removing the steering parts on the transom, they are just like a Rack and Pinion.

You want to turn the steering to shorten the rod and drive it back into the case. Then you will unbolt the case from the transom and the motor.

The hydraulic hoses are another challenge. You want to remove as much fluid from the steering pump as possible. Leave the fluid coolers alone and just uncouple the hoses at the steering case on the transom.
You want to BE PREPARED to cap the ends of the hoses and raise them as high upwards as you can keep them.

The steering case will then drop fluid. In an ideal situation you would have plugs to close the holes the hoses are removed from. A bucket to catch the fluid and plenty of rags to keep the fluid out of the bilge is about all you can do. You may get lucky and be able to wrap plastic wrap around the steering case to seal off the leaks.

You reinstall and then bleed the air out of the system by steering lock to lock a few times.

Bravo one water on tiller arm


Assuming "tiller arm" is the steering arm (connects to steering actuator and disappears into transom plate, lay on top of engine - not running - and have a friend turn steering wheel, black arm that is coming out of transom and moving is steering arm), problem is most likely the seal on the vertical steering shaft. This shaft connects the steering arm to the gimble ring. Problem can be confirmed by visually checking for water coming from just below the steering arm with boat in water, or residue starting in same area with boat out of water. If this is confirmed to be the problem, repair is quite extensive. Entire transom assembly needs to be taken apart - sometimes requires removal of engine - then the seal can be replaced and the transom assembly put back together. Other items to check in the area would be the wiring for trim sender and limit switch and through hull gear lube fitting (if boat is new enough).
