If it is only the rubber gasket and the spring loaded clamp that holds it in place it is worth repairing. if the tub, inner or outer, is damaged it is probably time to replace it

Hi, can you teach me on how to use jobos dye. Appreciate if you could the complete step by step... Thanks

For this project, we will be making a basic sunburst design on a t-shirt.

  1. First, wash the -shirt in order to remove any possible dirt and prepare it for dye absorption. Tie-dying is best done on damp fabric.
  2. Cover our work area with newspaper to protect it from any spills, and assemble all your tools.
  3. Wear rubber gloves to prepare the dye. Carefully follow the manufacturer's instructions provided on the package.
  4. Our particular fabric dye, Venus, for example, calls for the powder to be dissolved in boiling water to get the best, fastest results possible. So fill the large container with lukewarm water, bring to boil, and pour in the dye, starting with the lightest color if you are using more than one color.
  5. While the water is coming on a boil, lay the t-shirt flat on your work area. Grab the center of the t-shirt with your thumb and index finger, and lift it up. Run your other hand down the cloth, twisting the fabric as you gather it together tightly.
  6. Wrap one rubber band around the gathered t-shirt, right below the spot where you lifted. Then, wrap a few more rubber bands, about one to two inches apart from each other. Feel free to make up your own spacing.
  7. Once you're satisfied with the rubber band placement, immerse the entire t-shirt in the first color dye. Boil the t-shirt for 10 minutes , stirring constantly. Then, stir 4 level tablespoons of salt into the mixture for each gallon of water used. Boil for another 20 minutes, stirring constantly.
  8. Remove the t-shirt and rinse in cold running water. Wring out the garment until water runs almost clear.
  9. For designs requiring more than one color, repeat steps 3 to 8, using colors in order from lightest to darkest.
  10. When you have finished dying the garment, remove rubber bands and lay t-shirt flat on your workspace. Place a towel over the still-damp garment, and iron it flat.

I got a tire blown on my pacifica can i take the rubber off the rim

Not easily and you will probably ruin the tire and possibly the rim. If you just want the rubber off a tire shop will do that for next to nothing. You will need to go to a tire shop to replace it so its done properly and balanced

How to replace seal between door and drum

1. Unplug from mains electricity.
2. Pull machine out from wall carefully.
3. Remove screws in top corners (that are holding down the top panel of the machine) at the back of machine.
4. Remove top panel of machine (slide it slightly in the direction of the back of the machine, it just lifts off).
5. Remove the detergent drawer (pull it right out and put it to the side)
6. Remove the two screws at the top of the gap where the detergent drawer goes in
7. Remove the two screws at the top, front of the machine
8. Now lift out the panel with the control dials on it (etc.). Careful here, you don’t have to disconnect all of them, you should just be able to put this to the side with all the wires still connected.
9. If the old door seal is still on (if not go to 10):
a. Look carefully at the arrangement of the rubber at the lip of the drum and the door rim (you’ll need to know so you can put the new one on)
b. The outer rim is sealed in by a circular wire linked by a small spring. It’s a bit tricky but you can unhook the spring from the wire (using a blunt knife to lever it out – careful not to damage the rubber) to remove it.
c. The inner rim is sealed with a larger circular spring. You can either lever this out with the same blunt knife, or just pull hard on the rubber to get it out, and the rubber off.
10. Now position the new rubber door seal between the drum and the door
11. Grip tight around the outside and inside of the rubber door seal and attach it to the lip of the drum. This is the trickiest bit, and seems impossible but it is doable. The key here is that once you have a bit of it on, the rest will slip on as you work around it the circle. Even at the bottom and sides where your hands can’t reach it should slip on nicely. It ain’t easy, give it time.
12. Now get the spring on the inner rim to seal it (again, not easy, give it time and muscle – you need 3 hands for this!)
13. Then attach the outer rim to the lip of the door rim, and hook the metal wire back in place with the little spring.
14. Put the panels and screws back in in the reverse order to how they came off/out. Make sure there’s no parts left over, ey!
15. There you go – plug it back in and run a test wash. Check for leaks

Rubber door seal has disconnected

if the wire in the seal is propely positioned and not slightly askew it should work OK But if it looks correct and leaks you will need a njew seal as it may have been bent or stretched

if it smells like rubber burning then i would suspect a belt is worn or slipping or somthing has jambed the basket from turning .. the belt is not expensive ..labor of course would be extra .. if the burning smells like insulation or a strong electrical burning smell then you may have a bad motor .. those used to be about $70 + labor .. no telling what they get for them now ...

you mention that the smell came from inside ... do you mean inside where the cloths are (the tub) or inside the cabinet (outside of where the cloths are) ...if the smell was coming from inside the washing tub .. then i would suspect something cought between the inner and outer tubs .. if the smell is not from there then the first suggestions above are good ... bras and slippers and such are good for getting cought .. check where the movable tub (with holes) meets the outer tube (no holes) .thats at the very top of the tub .. ..make sure nothing it cought there ...

GE Front Loader rubber boot completely out of shape

You can replace the rubber door seal yourself if you are logically minded and are handy with tools. Isolate the washer from the mains supply. Remove the top fixing screws at the back of the washer. Slide the top of the washer to the rear of the washer and remove. Now you will be able to see the outer drum and the securing band to the drum. This needs loosening and moving clear of the outer drum so you can disconnect the seal from the drum. When you open the door, you will find see that the door seal connects to the washer outer body. You should see a holding catch probably made of plastic. This has to be removed and take care not to break anything. When re fitting the seal,you will find on the front inner edge a small hole, this must be in the 6 o'clock position. Working from the door access, feed the new seal on the outer drum and secure it with the retaining band that you removed earlier, at this stage do not fully tighten as you may need to readjust the seal later on. Now working at the door, feed on the door seal and position the small hole at 6 o'clock. If you find that the seal is twisting, then you will have to readjust the the seal on the inner outer drum. When everything is lined up, tighten the inner securing band then the outer retaining band by the door. Recheck that the small hole on the door inner lip is at 6 o'clock and both the door an outer drum securing bands are tight. This done, check for leaks by part filling the washer and then putting the washer on an emptying cycle. If all is well, then isolate the power to the washer and refit the the top of the washer and secure with the screws you removed earlier. On no account put your hands or tools inside the washer when it is on and connected to the power supply.

I have not yet replaced a door seal on your model of washer, but I have done quite a few and the process is the same. I hope you can follow these instructions and if you come across a snag, think about it and i am sure you will find the solution. You can always get to me at FixYa.

How to fit a drum rubber on a wf000

disconnect from mains. remove top
undo clamp that holds gasket to cabinet and peel away from cabinet.
there is a clamp holding rubber to tub - usually like a giant hose clip.
undo this clamp and peel rubber away from tub.
lubricate the slot in the rubber that goes on to the rim of the tub with washing up fluid
starting at the top, insert slot in rubber onto rim of tub.
work you way round in both directions pushing the slot onto the rim. this is a knack and you will have to be patient.
when completely on, refit clamp.
on outside, fit rubber onto cabinet (this is easy) and refit outer clamp.
test for leaks on rinse as water level is higher.
water will be foamy till washing up fluid washes away

Remote problem

Look carefully at the buttons and see if one of the rubber buttons is slightly pressed in, ever so slightly!!! look ever so carefully to see of the OUTER rim of the rubber button is off the plastic rim of the R\C [ remote control] usually PUSHED IN at the RIM ot the rubber button. That causes a short and confuses the r.c in two diferent directions.
