Although they are both used for measuring liquid, the burette is usually for larger quantities of liquid and the pipette is for smaller quantities

I get the message "Rinse unit" I do so and the machine rinses in a normal way. Instead of "Select product" the "Rinse unit" appears again. I can not continue from here. Any ideas?

you might escape this fix without using specially tools or screwdrivers. you are receiving this message because the rinse head sensor isn't working properly.
during the machine movement the rinse head down sensor was not triggered.
1. check the gap between the top of the rinse nozzle & the bottom of the pipette. measurements should be around 1.5 to 2mm
2. you might have to invite the newelectronx 102 to the party and check the sensor. if necessary open the machine with the correct screwdrivers and adjust the sensor. this should get you through the rinse cycle.

I have a 2005 mazda 6 that is not firing due to oil getting on the spark plugs.. how can I remove the oil from the holes the spark plugs screw into? or if not possible what should I do? I really need!

The spark plug tunnels of that type of engine sometimes get oil in because the cam cover or valve gear cover gaskets are leaking.

The oil should be removed before the spark plugs are disturbed to avoid it running into the cylinders and causing trouble. The majority of the oil can be mopped out with cloths poked down the holes with a screwdriver or a rod. If there is a lot it can be sucked out with a good turkey baster (with an extension) or a tube fixed to a pipette bulb.

When the majority of the oil is gone it will be time to introduce some solvent such as white spirit or brake cleaner and agitate it with the rod or a long brush until the remaining oil is dissolved and can be mopped out until almost dry.
It will then be safe to remove the spark plugs and very, very carefully complete the clean-up.

The source of the oil should be investigated and rectified before driving the car and it would be a good idea to check the crankcase breather and pcv valve operation.

Will not start, no spark

probably some oil or other liquids wet the ignition system, have you cleaned or changed the spark plug? Check if there is some liquids or dirt in the electronic ignition box or in the wire terminals in the connectors, check also spark cable, unmount the spark pipette, use a pair of insulated gloves, put high voltage cable terminal at 1-2 mm from a metal part, turn the key & crank the engine, check for spark.

Why do perfumes smell different on different people?

parfumes smell different on different people because each individual had different natural smell and it alters the outcome. Changes in life, diet, taking medication will alter your natural smell as well and you may end up with a different smell even from the fragrance you have used before. Always try fragrance for at least 15 min on you skin before deciding if you like it or not.

I put liquid dishwashing soap IN THE RINSE AGENT DISPENSER. What can I do?

I suggest purchasing a pipette (long thin flexible plastic eyedropper thing) from hobby lobby, Frye's, or from a scientific lab supply.
Draw up as much a you can from inside. Apart from that unless you remove the panels from the door to access the reservoir, then it may take several more washes to remove the soap from the the rinse additive dispenser. One more thing, you could start the machine in the rinse mode to wash the dishes and stop it when done and restart in the wash mode to rinse. When that is finished, stop and restart in the drying cycle. Good Luck!
