Question about Westinghouse Dishwashers

1 Answer

3 loose plastic rings found in primary filter The 3 identical rings are of pliable plastic and are 30mm in dia and 4mm width. The cross section of the outer ring is 'V' shaped. I cannot see where these belong. Are they part of the dishwasher? Thanks Richard

What you are describing is known as an 'olive' the sealing part of a water union known as a kinko and olive, i would nt worry to much they have been caught by the filter and it is just doing its job ....unless of course there is a leek then you will need to find the unions they came from

Frequently the problem for this is a plastic ring that has three pins in it. Normally the pins break through the bottom of the ring.
You need to take covers off. Strip SDS chuck. Remove plastic cap from end of drill then remove large internal retaining ring. Tap end of drill with mallet and eventually the tool holder will come out.
At the bottom of the tool holder there is a thin O ring (all this does is keeps a plastic gear and springs on the tool holder.) Remove this ring gear and springs can now be removed. You should now see the plastic ring (approx. 30mm long) Examine ring and pins, probably need to replace ring. This is usually the cause of not hammering, I have found changing seals works for weak hammering. Although having stripped the drill to this point I normally change the O rings on the hammer and piston. Rebuild is reverse of stripping be careful with the thin O ring not to snap it.

Lescha Hobby 125 S electric mixer requires new drum main bearing

I had a similar problem on a Lescha Hobby Mix 120 SF. (Sounds similar to yours) The failure seems to have been caused by corrosion of the ball bearings. If you get water into the rear bearing housing when it is operating, and then store the mixer with the opening in the drum downwards, the water collects around one of the bearings. The bearings are a standard size ball bearing with a 62mm outside dia, 30mm bore and 16mm wide. I bought the sealed version from a local bearing supplier (or look one up on the Internet). The original ones fitted are unsealed, which is part of the problem. I also bought two new bearing retaining external circlips for a 30mm shaft. I had a paint round inside the housing with hammerite, and drilled some 10mm dia drain holes around the outside of the housing near the bolting flange. I also store the mixer with the drum horizontal now.

I need to make an elevation adjustment; the cross-hair adjustment is not enough . Perhaps a more gross adjstment is possible where the ring mounts are located?

the easy way to get a little more ajustment of about 4-5 inches at 100 yds is to,,,cut up a 3 bit's of 35mm colour film to fit under the scope,,undo the rear scope top mount and lift the eye bell off its mount,,now slip the 3 bits of 35mm film under the scope body and reclamp the top mount cap,,,dont forse it up to tight ,,this will lift the point of aim
at least 4 or 5 inches at 100 yds

I have an Ingersoll Rand compressor (RA5E6VA) 5 HP 60 gal vertical tank (only found 3 HP listing below, but it says 5 HP on it) There is a plastic tube between where the pump attaches to the tank (air in)...

that is just a compression fitting. Sometimes just replacing the tubing is enough to get a bit on it. If not you should be able to get another fitting from an indstrial supplier.

Rather severe oil leak from the area of the oil filter

I own a '99 Isuzu Oasis, which of course is really and '98 Odyssey with Isuzu nameplate. 214,000 miles, Cranked it up yesterday morning after 20 to 30 degree temps that night....took middle schooler to class approx 3-4 miles from home and approx 1/4 mile from home- noted severe burning oil smell in cabin and smoke from under hood.. Got it home and observed 3-4 quarts of leaked oil on the ground where I had been sitting just 15 mins before. Thought for sure I had ruined the engine after seeing all the oil in the gravel. Could not believe the leak was so severe, considering this car still runs like a beauty and has shown no leaking or other symptoms in the days before this occurred. Got home later that day and checked filter thinking maybe it had loosened. It had not. Refilled engine with oil and noted oil not leaking or dripping but pouring through area at engine block and oil cooler juncture at filter area. Found this forum and a few others on line and followed the plan , AutoZone: loan-a-tool 30mm 1/2" drive socket is all you need to do the job, except of course the oil cooler seal/O-ring which I got at Honda for 3 bucks. Took me all of 45 need to dettach hoses and leak antifreeze, just unscrew the 30mm nut and remove the old gasket/seal. Be sure to remove all the pieces, Mine was hard and brittle and broken in 3 pieces. What once was rubbery/pliable would now snap like a pretzel due to age/wear. When I buy my next one of these, and I will, because it is the best vehicle I have ever owned ( and I have owned several Hondas and Toyotas) I will preventative replace this seal at approx 150,000 miles.... this was close to being catastrophic failure- Thanks to this forum and others for the advice-plan to put another 100,000 miles on this baby!
