Umbrella drain installation leaks

I am installing an umbrella pop-up drain and can't get it to not leak. Seller says the 2 silicone gaskets included are all I should need. I believe I have to use some other sealant need to know where and what i should use. I have read plumbers putty, silicone caulk, teflon paste and the more I read the more confused I am.

    The top one, you place it between the washer and the sink. Roll it up in your hand into a long string, and then place it down and screw it all together. You can also put thread tape on the threads as a back up

Just got cx500 custom 1981 leaking oil when i start up from small hole on side of cylinder what do i do


If the oil leak is coming out of the spark plug drain hole , the inner valve cover seal is leaking or not installed correctly. Take out the two bolts holding on the valve cover and remove the cover. If the valve cover gasket has silicone on it , pick off all the silicone and put the gasket and cover back on. That should fix the problem. Silicone on the type of gasket can make it leak. If the gasket is hard or cracked replace the soft rubber gasket and put it on by itself with no extra sealant.

We are ready to install the Duracraft Plastics Schedule 40 Foot Lok style bath drain and have a question on the foot lok drain gasket. Does the gasket install on the inside or outside of the bathtub and...


The gasket is installed on the outside of the tub. Use plumbers putty under the male end on the inside of the tub as it stays permanantly flexible and will not mildew like silicone caulking can. Do not silicone or use plumbers putty on the gasket. The gasket will seal nicely under pressure from the connections.

Shower drain still leaking


Shower drains can be a real pain to install. If you have the screw in type with the rubber gasket and card then you need to take it appart again. The card usually rips and then the rubber is twisted out of place. Use clear bathroom silicone (not acrillic based) between the upper grill part and the shower base, lube the plascit nut & rubber with silicone grease (home depot) and throw the card (now crushed or soaked) in the garbage. Have someone hold the grill in place (needle nose pliers) while you put the rubber & nut on. Keep a close eye on the rubber as it can still get forced out as you tighten. Clean up the silicone before it sets. If you have the rubber wedge style then I would suggest that you buy a screw on type.

My model GWL11 washer is leaking from the drain pump. The drain pump part number is 420325P. Is it possibe to buy a replacement seal instead of the entire $76.00 pump? The seal has the number 3C026 along...


Yes!!! The solution for your gasket is called Silicone. Fisher & Paykel builds job security for their parts department into every washer. The drain leaks and makes the $1.50 fuse on the board pop and then they sell you a board for $189 OR the grommet where that water mixes get old and leaks, the problem with that is they located the thing in the SEALED compartment for the electronics! Water & ELectronics? I think NOT! Silocone is the answer here as well. Just take the 2 screws out of the back and lift the control panel out and put clear silicone around the grommet and the sensor wire.
As for the water pump IF you caught it in time, take the thing apart and use silicone LUBRICANT (WD-40) to oil it and then use silicone on your gasket to make the seal airtight. If not, it will corrode, squeel and then pop the little 'bell fuse' on the board.
It's a great washer as far as ringing out the clothes as they are almost dry when the thing finishes spinning but I don't care for their concept of washing in hot or warm water. The thing just spritzes them in hot water for a bit and then fills up with cold water and washes.
Hope this helps!
