Split in plastic bowl

Hello God knows how, but i have developed a small split in the plastic bowl, that the stainless steel bowl inside my washing machine sits in (LG Turbo Drum 6.5kg). The split is causing a leak and water is running out onto my floor. Is this plastic bowl replacable? It seems to be a major component as nearly everything is connected to it. The appliance is only 4 years old. Thanks for any help.

Yes it is replaceable any good washing machine parts shop will have them cheaper to buy a second hand one though but you can buy straight from the manufacturers but that will more than likely come fully built with the inner drum in it which will make it easier for you to fit m8 if you dont have the phone number than you can find all manufacturers in the argos book

Bosch dishwasher shows an error message E15. Any suggestions on how to resolve the issue. We've cleared the E15 several times by tilting unit and removing water, but seems to reappear


E15 is a leak into dishwasher base. Leak can be as simple as using to much soap powder or a split lower spray arm to more expensive fix of a leaking sump base or wash pump. Need to pull dishwasher out of cavity, remove side panels and front kick panel and run machine and watch base to see where leak is coming from. Have had them leak from 4 main places. Heat exchanger where large plastic nut screws from inside. Bottom of wash pump. Plastic sump base (mainly towards front of machine. And last place is a small pin hole can develop in stainless base of machine towards front of dishwasher. Check soap usage and lower spray arm for splits first.

Tip

Split in radiator top tank


It is common for the plastic radiator top tank to develop a split, often small, and in a hard-to-see spot such as the joint with the radiator core.

If you have a coolant leak, look carefully for this too.

Simpson washing machine problem have taken out stainless steel wash bowl and the plastic top/seal around it has water in it is that normal for that to happen


Yes. Some have water & some have sand in that ring. It is a balance ring to stop vibration when bowl spins. Do not empty it.

What are the disadvantages of stainless steel bowls?


There are two major disadvantages for stainless steel bowls: They are more likely than other types to tip over and they look really simple and don't have an attractive design like with plastic or ceramic bowls.

What types of materials are cat bowls made from?


Most cat bowls are made from one of three materials - plastic, ceramic/glass, or stainless steel. I recommend a ceramic/glass bowl. Many plastic bowls harbor bacteria and stainless steel bowls (although they are best for keeping water cool) are not heavy enough and will be easily tipped over by your cat.

There are so many styles and types of dog bowls available, why when I ask my vet do they recommend a simple stainless steel bowl?


Stainless steel bowls will never lose their popularity. They are a standard dog bowl that you cannot go wrong with. They decrease the possibility of contact dermatitis, they last forever and they are pore-free meaning that it is highly unlikely that they will harbor any harmful bacteria. Stainless steel bowls are also very easy to wash.

Adjust watch band for Seiko 7T94 Stanless Steel Band


You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.
