I have a foam belt that fell out when I opened my foods aver. Not sure where it came off of


Easy.. It fits around the 'mouth' of the trough either in the lid or the matching surface in the body.. It should be one piece and unbroken... If it's broken, then check eBay for a replacement

Foodsaver v485 no longer seals


Hi tami prevost
Your vacuum pump seals are wearing and not allowing the vacuum build up as it was new...
Look at the manual that came with it and see it you can order parts for your vacuum foodsaver, if you can order the seals/orings,etc that is needed to repair the vacuum part of the machine.
Please take time to rate me

Washer will not agitate or spin


If the unit hums and sounds like it's running but doesn't spin or agitate you've probably got a bad coupler. Open the unit and take the pump and motor off and see if the coupler is broken or missing (This is most often a plastic/rubber part which usually breaks down into three pieces and hooks your transmission to your motor). If it is missing or damaged, replace it. Good luck.

I was washing and it made a clicking sound then it didn't spin or agitate. My hubby leaned it over to look behind and a black round piece fell out from under it. Where did it come from and what part is...


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (110.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump. This is likely why the machine drains.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

Foodsaver pro locked up. 3 green lites blink off and on. is the problem fixable?


The reset button is the small black rubber covered hole on the left side of the vacuum channel. If you press down on that with something like a knitting needle with the unit on, it should reset

If this is a basic top load, direct drive washer, there is a rubber-band like device that fits around the brake drum. It's a sound deadening device and won't hurt anything if it's broken or missing. That's likely what the "belt or gasket" is.
