I would use vaseline. Remember, if it takes grease, which many of them don't, you need to use a grease that is not oily, because oil will rot rubber.
You could also use a white lithium grease, or sililcone grease.
Be blessed.

My Hoover 600mb won't completely spin dry on medium to heavier loads. Clothes still wet. Barrel still spins on most cycles.

Make sure the belt isn't loose or slipping, also check that the machine is pumping out properly. These will cause poor spin results. The MB series is a Simpson clone. if the clutch housing has started to throw oil / grease out, the clutch may be slipping. This fairly easy to diagnose. See if there is a "tide mark" of oil and grease around the cabinet in line of where the clutch is. (That is the gear shaped plastic bit which fits behind the main drive pulley under the gearbox under the machine) If there is a really bad oil stain / marks it will be a good idea that the gearbox / clutch has failed. Time for a new machine. generally, they are not economical to fix if the gearbox / clutch has failed.

How to lubricate electric demolition hammer

Only lubricate is not enough,the kind of grease is brand and breaker type dependent , but a consumables kit and a condition that the machine that front that the striking pin in the front air and lubricant is closed in terms of oil seals etc completely closed has very high priority otherwise it is only momentary, because all O-rings, etc. are to fast getting hot again a rapid solidification and its leaking again , and premature all kinds of rings are hardened again, therefore there must be a service (maintenance kit (spare parts) are used A NOTE a rotary hammer is not a demolition hammer and there is often more wrong with and most times too expensive to service in proportion to hidden defects with respect to the new price it than a heavy breaker

What kind of grease to use on fr350 nail gun for piston o ring

Use white grease or silicone paste. White grease will stay in the gun longer . Silicone paste is cleaner will cost more however will break down with water that enters the gun and will tend to dry out. In either case, the grease will wash out of the gun if you use too much oil on a daily basis. For best results, install an oiler that will introduce oil mist into the gun (not expensive).

2nd time I have oil stains on my clothes from Whirlpool LSR9434PQ1 and nothing gets them out. Need to know how to get the stains out and what kind of washing machine is better so that I can replace. Spent...

You can try Lestoil to get the grease out, it has surfactants that will help break up the grease, if they aren't set too deeply. This seems to me to have a leaking transmission if you are constantly getting grease on the clothes. A better machine is anything newer that you can afford, quite honestly, there is only your preference to what you want/need for your usage.
Hope this helps, please rate service and comment, Thank You,

Hi there, I have a Campbell Hausfeld air gun (drill?)... I opened it to clean it and have put it together but there is now an air leak from the trigger which was not there (the tool was working fine). Can...

ok sounds like you've pinched an o-ring in the trigger assembly. dissassemble the gun again and look for a torn or pinched o-ring. when reassembling the tool make sure you put some grease on the seals and other moving components to avoid these kinds of problems. if the o-ring is torn you can take the old one to most any local parts place and they will have a big box of o-rings and usually just let you match the old one with a new one and sell you what u need.

oh and it doesn't really matter what kinda of grease u use just dont use penetrating oil ( like wd-40 or 3-in-1 oil ) or it will soak into the seals and reduce the life of your seals, motor oil or any standard bearing grease should do the trick

Grease leaking into drum under agitator cone

Remove the agitator cone. There will likely be a removable plastic piece with an O-ring. Oil could be leaking out of the O-ring into the washer, and water could be leaking into the bearings. If there is damage to the O-ring replace it, or if there is a bunch of schmag that is compromising the seal, clean it out, and re-install everything. This solved the problem in my washer; hopefully it works for you.

Grease oil ring around tub and it smells like oil?

The only place there is oil in a washer is inside the transmission. If you have oil in the tub (and it didn't come from the clothes you put in) you have a bad transmission seal. It is generally cost prohivitive to replace the transmission. It's time to get a new washer. Look into the front load machines which use much less water and spin out twice as fast as top loaders. Some even have direct drive, which means no belt, transmission, or clutch.

Found oil and grease under washing machine. Makes loud noise when on spin cycle.

The oil and grease is probably from the transmission and yes you might be able to replace it. Get your make andmodel number and go to It is a very good site for finding pictures and parts of appliances. The parts are as cheap as you will find them. If the oil/grease is from the transmission, it will eventually fail. Fix it now or fix it later. Your choice.
