Question about American Standard Evolution 2425V-LHO.020 White 5 Feet x

1 Answer

Install of AS 2425 whirlpool tub

How to mark level line on studs when there is no access whatsoever?
(tub is closed on 3 sides with the exception of the small access panel in the apron)
Once that is accomplished, how much mortar might be required for a proper bedding? It appears in a drawing that is is quite thick, ie: several inches?
I would assume I should use rosin paper on plywood subfloor beneath mortar?
Is it a better idea to install all floor tile (including beneath tub) prior to installing the tub/cabinetry?
Appreciate the help much.
Thanks, Bill

No problem as yet. Just purchased a whirlpool front load top of the line. The instructions are very good except I can't find any instructions regarding adjusting the water level for smaller and la


For the Whirlpool WFW96HEAC front-load washer, the water level adjustment is made by the washer based on the size of the load. If only 3-4 items are in the tub, it will do a small load. If you fill the tub completely, it will do a large load. (Note: if the clothes are packed into the tub, they can't tumble and won't get cleaned.) Loading the tub with clothes until it is 1/2 or 3/4 full are the other load sizes.

Please add a comment with the model of your washer, I'll be glad to give additional help. I hope this helps.

Whirlpool does not turn on. Kohler Model K-1474-V


The chances that is problem you are experiencing is related to the suction cover is extremely remote. The suction assembly doesn't have anything to do with the tub motor operating.
The issue is most likely with the motor not working or the air switch in the motor malfunctioning.
What does the control look like that you use to turn the pump on/off?
Is it an air button or an electronic switch?

How do u install drywall ontop of a tub


to install drywall around a basic tub all you have to do is put spacing strips against the studs in order for the drywall to overlap the lip around the edge of the tub.. this will ensure that the lip wont cause a bump in the finished product. i would also use a mold resistant drywall. paint it with a waterproof bathroom paint.

Bathtub installation


Now I see the wood stud is added support and the tub should rest on it. though it is not to hold the tub up. Like a man using a cane the cane doesn't keep a man standing by itself. Rather it helps a person be more stable that's what the stud does. Set at height for a level tub.

Here is a trick as well for supporting the back of the tub (Shimming) Get some of the expandable foam. Set everything in place like the wood ledge when you have everything in place and tub pre-fitted. Remove tub and place a line of foam along back side. Place tub in place and when foam expands and dries it will become your perfect shim. Hope this helps, thanks for using FIXYA. Good luck, Jeff

Need to replace tub in old travel trailer. any help for removing old one, installing new one and supporting under floor if rotted??


First turn off water then remove the wall board ,or paneling at least 12 in above tub lip .,Remove more if you can.The more room you have the easer it is to slide the new tub into place. Now you should be able to reach the tubs drains unsrcew or cut them out When you have the drains disconnected .pull any nails or screws from around the tub. Look at the path you have to take to get the tub out ,you'll probably have to remove the toilet tubspout or maybe even the lavitory.when your path is clear put a flat bar between a stud and the inside edge of the tub pry the tub up and out. You way have to move from one stud to another.When its off the wall on the inside edge see if you can pick the back end of the tub up.This should make it easier.Remove all the bad flooring .You will need some lumber now replace the floor joist or scab onto them (you will need 3 or 4 ft of good joist on eather end to scab onto.If the edges of the new floor board dont land on a floor joist simply nail aboard onto the side of the joist it needs to meet on level with the other joist.Where the front of the tub sits cut a hole out about 10x12 in center of hole14and1/2in for standard tub and off the wall in front of the tub 12 in.This will give you room for the tub shoe(thats the part the tub basket screws into) Sit tub on flat level surface and measure from the ground up to the inside edge of tub .Nail a 2x4 on the inside wall about 4 ft long off the floor as high as the edge of the tub.Take your time and get this right if you dont you will have to pull the tub back up after you've set it in place..If you have room you can put the waste and over flow on the tub follow the instructions on the package use pipe compound on threds and plumbers putty on the basket lip.If your not going to be able glue the trap after the tub is inSet the center of drain 14 1/2 in off inside wall and 1 1/2 off front wall .put tub into place front in first drop down the back and slide tub ont the board you nailed up earlier level it up dont add pitch the tub has pitch built into it takes screws or roofing nail securing tub to studs hook up the drain P.S.dont nail or screw through the tub instead nail or screw just above the top liof the lip fill the tub completly up .plug up the over flow When water gets to edge of tub lip look fore leaks then release stopper and finish looking for leaks . YOU HAVE A LOT TO DO! Good Luck!!
