The side with the 1 1/4 inch (about) indention encircling the shaft hole faces toward the basket. That is where the seal is set. The other side of the seal sets into the impeller with the white side showing outward.

Calypso Nunater Removal

The following advice gives the steps necessary to remove the wash plate (or nunater) in Calypso model washers. Common complaints of articles of clothing getting caught in the wash plate and/or lodged under it, may facilitate the need to do this:


2. Open the washer top. Look along the front seam of the washer where the top meets the front. There are a couple of retaining clips (about 2" in from each side) that you will need to push in on with a putty knife while gently lifting up on the top to get the top to release. Carefully open the top and lay it back in a resting position. Make sure you support the lid so it doesn't fall open when you tilt the top back. NOTE: I would recommend using duct tape to keep the lid closed and gently place the top against a wall for support. Use a towel between the cabinet and wall to prevent any damage to painted surfaces. This also reduces the strain on the top panel supports.

3. Remove the tub ring. This is the plastic donut shaped ring that sits on top of the wash tub. There will be a tab on either side of the outer tub near the back that you can use a screwdriver to release the tub ring. The ring is filled with fluid and is used to balance the tub. So, if you hear liquid sloshing around, this is normal.

4. Remove the wash plate center dome from the wash plate. This is the center cone on top of the wash plate. Use a flat blade screwdriver and insert it into any of the slots available along the sides. Gently pry until it pops off. I say "gently", but you may have to use a little muscle to get it to come off. Sometimes they stick. Once the center cone is removed there will be a series of nuts under it.

5. Remove the nuts and the main wash plate should lift out, exposing the inner wash plate. This is another cone shaped device located under the main wash plate. Remove the inner wash plate, using care not to damage the gasket under it. It is common for clothing to become tangled in the leveler or u-joint under this inner wash plate.

6. When all required maintenance is complete, reinstall the inner wash plate, ensuring the gasket is seated under it. The inner wash plate is keyed and should only install one way.

7. Insert the main wash plate and insert mounting bolts. Use a criss-cross pattern when tightening to ensure all bolts are tightened evenly and the gasket seats properly.

8. Reinstall the center dome on the wash plate by snapping it back in place.

9. Reinstall, the balance ring on the wash tub.

The following is a parts list of the most common items that may require replacement when you experience erratic motion of the wash plate, and/or clothing becoming damaged or entangled:

Wash Plate Dome
Main (Outer) Wash Plate
Inner Wash Plate
Leveler Assembly
Inner Wash Plate Seal
U-joint has an excellent exploded view illustration of the wash plate assembly and components to illustrate everything I’ve discussed in the steps above. Just type in your model number and click on the “Washplate, Basket and Tub” heading. At a minimum you should replace the Inner Wash Plate Seal anytime you break the seal. This will minimize the possibility of leaks.

I hope this information is found to be helpful.

The seal will always run with the two ceramic sided against each other. The seal with the white ceramic will go in the rear seal plate, and the half with the black ceramic will go on the impeller with the black ceramic side facing the white ceramic in the seal plate.

Door seal on hotpoint fridge cracked. Have obtained new door seal C00282948, but cannot work out how to attach to fridge door. Please can you help?

If you lay the gasket flat on the floor with the side that mates to the chassis of the compartment... you will note that there appears to be a split on the inside of the gasket.

On the OLD gasket you loosen all of the screws by gripping the gasket and rolling it until the mounting screws are exposed. Just loosen the mounting screws as you go and pull to old gasket off starting on the bottom and working your way up both sides until you finish to center. DO NOT remove any of the screws unless you have no other choice. If your removed them to begin with... reinstall all the screws and mounting plates VERY loosely before attempting to install the new gasket.

When you install the NEW gasket.... hang the gasket under the TOP mounting plate by separating / rolling the NEW gasket until you can slide it into place. Once you get about 12 inches in place on both sides from center TIGHTEN the top center mounting screw so the gasket does not keep falling out of place. Align the rest of the top of the gasket to both TOP corners. Make sure it is centered and the corners match. Then work your way down each side to each of the corners. Tighten a few screws until they are just snug to hold the gasket in place. Then align the bottom with the gasket mouting plate and push the gasket into place under the mouting plate. Center the gasket and tighten the center bottom screw and one screw on each corner.

Now go back and tighten all the rest of the screws by rolling the gasket back to expose the screws. You do not have really tighten the screws super tight. Only tighten them until it grips the mouting plate firmly against the gasket. It is best to work from a center point to the corners on each side of the gasket so the mounting plates do not warp when doing the final tightening process.

Should your model NOT have the mounting screws and plates it is a matter of aligning the part of the gasket that locks over the lip on the door. (See video)

Hopefully my "How to" steps are understandable to you.
If not the 2 min 30 second video below should help you. (not your model but the concept is the same) Pay particular attention to the steps at the 1:27 mark of the video.

Thanks for choosing FixYa, Kelly

Valve cover is leaking oil on my 2000 1.9 TDI Passat. Have changed the gasket but still leaking badly. Have been told to change whole cover but VW want £120,00 Any ideas?

will try to help.if it's only the valve cover leaking,i'm guessing they sold you the rubber one that says ne rtv sealant needed. take your back off, try not to break the rubber seal when removing!clean the top of head where gasket goes. clean the valve cover really good!clean the grooves out that the gasket slides into. buy some blue trv glue, apply a thin coat to top of head, let it setup while you apply another thin coat to valve cover, let set 10mins. apply gasket to valve cover making sure to push the gasket into the grooves on valve cover. don't worry about neatness. let the valve cover set on a hard surface with the gasket against the hard flat surface[such as a garage floor,or clean driveway] after10 more minutes install the valve cover,make sure and take your time. place valve cover onto motor,than hand start each bolt to insure thay are going into the prope bolt holes. after you have each bolt hand started, start at center of valve cover snugging the bolts down to motor. do not crank down or apply excessive force when tightening those bolts. you should see some of that blue rtv glue coming out around the valve cover when applying torque to the valve cover bolts. only secure them snug at first. let car set for 15mins. start car and look for leaks around the cover, do not over tighten those bolts but you may need to look for a leak, go to bolt closest to leak and turn it 1/4 at a time until leak stops. but if you do this step by step, you'll not have a leak issue. you may have pinched the gasket when you replaced it. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

How do you assemble a Hayward pool pump

If it is completely apart, I am guessing you were replacing the motor? Anyway, motor gets mounted to the mounting plate plate by way of four bolts through the mounting plate into the motor. There is an top and bottom to the mounting plate usually indicated on the plate. Next goes the seal plate, there is a top and a bottom as well, usually indicated on the plate, also there is a **** in the seal plate at the bottom, an opening so if the shaft seal leaks, the water has somewhere to go instead of to your motor to rust it out. There are no bolts for the seal plate, it is held in place by the impeller. You need to get a new shaft seal before you do all this (SPX1600Z2), any compitent pool company should have a bunch of them in stock. Shaft seal is two pieces. The white porcelin piece with a rubber gasket around it goes over the shaft and into the seal plate. It fits snug in the seal plate and does not touch the metal shaft of the motor. The other half of the shaft seal goes on the impeller. The side of the piece of the shaft seal that is all black, with no metal, does not bump up to the impeller, it eventually will touch the white porcelin that is now in the seal plate. That black part of the shaft seal that goes on the impeller is made of carbon and can break somewhat easily so don't bang it on anything. You have to wiggle that part of the shaft seal onto the impeller with a little elbow grease. Make sure it is seated all the way on the impeller. Now you can screw the impeller on the the motor shaft. The motor shaft will want to spin on ya so you have to take the back of the motor off and hold the shaft. Should be a 7/16 or 1/2 inch wrench depending on what motor you got. Snug the impeller up while holding your wrench on the shaft. Doesn't need to be a death grip, the motor will actually tighten the shaft seal more due to the direction that it spins. Now the seal plate should be imobile after you tightened the impeller on. You now put the diffuser on to the seal plate. It also has a top and a bottom usually indicated by some writing. The diffuser has little nobs on it (for lack of a better term) that correspond with female groves that accept the nobs located on the seal plate. It just sits there in those groves, no bolts of screws or anything. Lubricate the gasket on the pump housing before you slide everything back into it. And make sure there isn't any debris that's gonna pinch between the seal plate and the gasket. Slide the whole mechanism into the pump and the seal plate should meet flush with the rest of the pump and tighten to it by way of four bolts (9/16"). When sliding that in there you can take off the pump lid, remove the skimmer basket, reach through the whole and guide the diffuser to the hole. Get those four bolts well snug, but if you tighten too much they will start to recess into the housing which aint a huge deal but you don't really want to go too far down that road. I hope thats all understandable, maybe i went into too much detail but I have taken apart and put back together so many hayward pumps that I have learned all the little things that potentially go wrong......good luck!

How does the gasket of a 2000 harley davidson fatboy fit into the intake valve?

I'm really not sure what you're asking. There is no gasket in the intake valve. Now, if you are talking about the intake manifold gasket at the heads, you need to look at the plates that are on the intake manifold themselves.

There is a plate on each runner of the intake. These plates are marked with a "R" for Rear and a "F" for Front. One side of them is flat with the other side having a "counterbore". The "counterbore" goes towards the head with the gasket sliding up on the manifold so that it's shape fits up into the counterbore. When the plates are tighened down, they flatten out the gaskets and form a seal against the head and the manifold.

Now, you must align the manifold when you put it on. Do not just put it on and tighten it up. Install the manifold but leave the bolts loose. Then install a new carburetor seal on the carb end of the manifold and install the carburetor into the manifold. Bolt the backing plate of the air filter to the carburetor and the heads. No need to connect the fuel line or cables because you are simply aligning the manifold at this point. With the carb and rear plate of the air filter bolted in it's place, then tighten the manifold bolts. This insures that you will not have a vacuum leak at the carburetor seal by aligning the manifold with the carburetor and air filter. I hope this answers your question. Good Luck and ride carefully.

Head Gasket?? Valve cover Gasket???

most likely it is the valve cover gasket. it covers the valve train where there is alot of oil to lube the top of the motor. if the head gasket was leaking it may have more signs of running poorly. also having coolant leaks also. so i will have to say valve cover gasket. now usally you may have a oil burning smell with it depending on the area of the lek but not always.

the valve cover can easily be seen when the hood is open. it is right on the top and where it meets the clyinder head is where the gasket is and the leak can be seen.

if you have more question please ask.
