Hello - I followed your instructions to someone else`s problem & got as far as I could. To access the internal parts I`m sure I need to remove the silver top - but I cannot remove the black knob on the top - do I have to ???? Previous thread................ SOURCE: I have a FT series Mr Coffee (Black and Silver) Could be as simple as a hose that popped loose, or as serious as a cracked tank...the only way to know for sure is to pull the bottom plate and have a look. Most retailers have a generous return policy, and you never really know what you can't have until you ask...but if this is not an option, a 30 minute project could save you the replacement cost. Remove the base plate screws* and lift easy to reveal the heater element and hoses to the water tank. *Torx screws (a star pattern) require a special driver that can be found cheap at any auto parts store. Check the hoses one at a time for leaks (cracks, dry spots, tight fit, etc) and look at the bottom of the tank for a split or crack. Place the bottom back on (no screws yet) and add a little water...If it stays, then you got it. If it leaks, lift the machine to eye level, drop the bottom out of the way, and add a little more water so you can watch for the source of the leak. A broken tank means a new machine...but a bad hose can be replaced.

Most likely the pump on your washing machine. Coins get stuck in there and break the plastic housing. You won't need to lift up the beast-just get to the back with a flashlight.

SOURCE: Whirlpool LXR94 leaks in front left

I have a different model Whirpool (GSX9885JQ0), but a similar issue. I took the cover off and saw the bleach inlet hose was broken in two places. After replacing that, still leaked!! I wiped everything dry, and ran it again, and traced the leak. The water pump has a small hole worn into the side of it. The pump is located in the btoom front, just under the tub. The hole was on the left side, between the two hoses. I just looked up the schematic for your machine on, and it looks like you have the same exact pump...

SOURCE: my bendix washing machine doesnt

Welcome bcarro10'

You said,
My Bendix washing machine doesn't fill with water instead it leaks out the bottom. I'm not sure if a connection is loose, a hose cracked or a part missing.

My name is Huuum,

I'm not sure if you search more you will, find a connection is loose, a hose cracked or a part leaking and needs replacement! As you surmised.
Or if you do not do it your self, then service will find the same!

Let me know the location of the leak when you locate it!
Cheers, and Bless You!
Please remember to leave a rating when you finish!
Thank You.Huuum

is the pump gray or white? if it is gray then replace it.look where the pump mounts to the ,otor and see if there is a black line coming from the middle.this is probably where your leak is.
just change the pump.

Sherwood AX-4103 amp keeps clicking

Hello there.... Check your speaker wires and then if that doesn't do it? try replacing the fuses on the back of the amp.. make sure power is turned off and unplugged. If that doesn't work? Try one speaker at a time ... something is causing the system to short out. Hopefully it is not internally

How do I change the handles from right to left?

If you don't have the print instructions for your lock, go to this web page:

On the grid, go across from L1000 to the "Manuals" column & click on PDF, which will download the file of the manual for your lock.

If you cannot open the file to view it, you need to install Adobe Reader first. You can get the download (free) from here:

Now you should have the manual for reference.

Someone else who was wanting to change the handle sent me this information:

"I've got a Simplex L1000 series combination that needs the Outside Lever Assembly-Right Hand and Outside Sleeve Assembly changed on it. I have the parts needed but I can't figure out how to remove the Outside Lever from the Front Lock Housing.

I had the original question. For others viewing and needing the answer it's as follows: After looking and removing the internal parts I still couldn't find the solution, so I ended up sending it to a locksmith to replace the parts. They told me later that ALL internal parts from the Front Lock Housing needed to be removed, then rotate outside lever 180 degrees. Using spanner wrench depress the front knob retainer, then outside lever should slide off. Remove Drive Assemply and Front knob retainer from rear of front lock housing. *The key was rotating the lever 180 degrees. Nowhere in the directions was this mentioned nor was it mentioned in the email reply I received from Simplex.. So for all you out there, Good Luck! And make sure to add this key step to your directions."

As you will find in the manual, you need a special spanner wrench for this operation.
The spanner wrench (SMPBC201278 Simplex:SpannerWrench $9.00) referred to can be purchased from this site:

Good luck!

We are replacing our timing belt and water pump on our 02 toyota tundra v8 4.7 ltr engine. My dad told me to go online and get the R&R (remove & replace) on the timing belt and the timing belt...

Here's some pictures for you but there are some procedures that need to be followed when installing to make sure everything is lined up correctly. I do have the factory service manual so if you need step by step instructions from start to finish with pictures you can email me at and I will make up a PDF for you for that section & email it to you. Also as far as looking for parts, I would try these guys> I get quite a few parts from them on a regular basis. Even hard to find parts that you can only get at the dealer and I own a shop so I do get plenty of auto parts. So if you need those instructions just email and make sure you give me your make, model, year & engine size. I know you have it here but if you email me I will never remember as I answer many questions on here. I hope these pictures help and good luck.
