This Solution is Considering that there is nothing wrong with the Washing Machine itself.......If the Adjustment Knobs are Rusty and will not move, you can try and spray or apply WD 40 or Liquid Wrench to the Nuts and Bolts. Something to loosen the Bolts. Apply it a few times a day and let it sit for a few hours or longer. Then you can try to move the Adjustment bolts again. Okay you tried that and it didn't work. The only Option left is to SHIM underneath the Adjustment Bolts. You Will Need a Level and another person to help with LIfting the machine. You can use Wooden Shims, or even better yet you can use Rubber Chair Bottom Caps or Rubber pieces that are used under furniture legs. You can find these at most Hardware stores. Just Start at the corner that needs to be raised and start SHIMMING from there!! If you still have problems and your washer is working properly, then you may have to unhook the washer, lay it on its side and remove and install new Adjustment Bolts. Hope this assists you in your quest to balance your washer.....Joe

The push,turn on control has become very difficult to push on and off what can i do?


Disconnect power from the system. 2. Purchase a can of www.ultra-lube.com (This type f lubricant will not cause breakdown of rubber, silicone or plastic seals) multi purpose lube. HomeDepot sells it. Black green and silver spray can. 3. Remove the knob using the right size Allen wrench. 4. Spray lube into the neck of the actuator. 5. Wipe off any lube from the knob shaft. 6. Re install the knob and push pull a few times to distribute the lubricant. 7. Restore power and test system.

If this does not solve the problem then there may be a mechanical failure in progress. Go online at the manufactures website to order a new switch.

The control & pump you have is no longer being made. (It hasn't been made for well over 5 years)
Your new system will include the following items:
· New Pump
· AirStreme Control box and topside control
You will change out everything from the old system with the new system.
The new topside panel replaces the one on the top of the bathtub and the pump will hook up to the same plumbing as the old one.
No cutting PVC pipe to get this installed.

Bathtub problem


The audio is not very clear, but i assume you removed the knob. Did you check inside the knob if the "teeth" were worn out? If you are not sure, take a pair of pliers and gently try to turn the stem to shut it off. If it feels like it is as tight as it should be, then I would think it is the gasket(or washer) inside the unit that is worn out. The repair can be made fairly easily if you have the basic tools and do not overtighten after replacing the gasket.
Let me know if this helps! Good luck.

MY WASH MACHINE IS A 1YR OLD WHEN SPIN MAKE LOUD NOISE AND OFF BALANCE.


Your clothing inside the machine is not evenly spread out. So clothes packed too heavy on one side makes the machine off balance. Re-distribute the clothing so it is even in weight.

I've had a Moen shower fixture for years. Suddenly the knob is no longer turning and I find it is cracked inside and thus affecting the grip. Called Moen and they sent out a replacement. Broke again. ...


you will need to replace the cartridge, along with the handle.
plastic gets brittle over time, but adding a difficult to turn cartridge will cause it to break more frequently.

make sure when you replace the cartridge, to clean everything well. a small wire brush will do, no need to scrub, unless there is a buildup of scale. just a light brushing inside the valve.

clean and dry, then lubricate inside the valve, and the new cartridge with non-silicone based lubricant. this will make your valve work like new.

I have a whirlpool washing machine and I need to check the filter, please can you tell me where it is. It is a AWO/D 4505 model Thanks


Your filter/screens are where your washer hot and cold hoses connect to you washer. You will have to turn the water off on your washer, and unscrew the hoses at the washer. You will see them at the end of the hose or in the washer itself. Take them out and clean them.
