I need to attach a small spring to a flat plate. It's a rather difficult angle and the space is very narrow, any tips on attaching it? Should I straighten the hook, stick the wire through, and then curl it back?

IF YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE PLATE THIS IS HOW:
USE A SMALL SCREWDRIVER TO LIFT UP THE END OF THE SPRING (IT'S FLAT). PUSH THE SPRING UNDER THE ONE SIDE OF THE SEWING MACHINE. HAVE YOUR PLATE AT AN ANGLE LIFT UP THE OTHER SPRING WHILE MOVING THE PLATE SO IT IS SQUARE WITH THE SEWING MACHINE. IT WILL TAKE A LITTLE PRACTICE SO DON'T GIVE UP.
Here are the steps to get the belt and tension pulley and spring attached properly. 1. Remove the drum from the dryer housing 2. Fit the belt around the drum, secure the belt to the drum (grooved side towards the drum, flat side away from the drum) with small strips of masking tape. Leave a loop of about 10-15 cm's free to fit around the motor. (This was Hurdle #1, it was next to impossible to hold the belt on with one hand and attempt to work out the tension pulley thing at the same time) 3. Place the drum back in to the dryer housing and rotate it so that your belt loop is facing the motor. 4. (Hurdle #2) Attach the tension pulley to the motor assembly bracket. (There should be slots in the bracket for the pulley bracket to insert into. The pulley faces away from the motor, about a 45 degree angle. 5. (Hurdle #3) Feed the belt through (under) the pulley and then over the motor's drive wheel or nub, whatever it's called. 6. (Finaly Hurdle) Attach the spring to the pulley assembly. In the centre of the dryer housing floor, there should be a seam, in the centre of this seam there is a small hole where the other end of the spring attaches too. Stretch and insert the other end of the spring into this hole. 7. Remove the masking tape that's holding the belt down. 8. Re-assemble dryer and your done.
Most of them are tricky. They have a flat spring attached to the plate that pulls the plate down against the machine. To remove it move the plate at an angle and the spring from the plate will eventually release from the machine. To replace it you will need a small screwdriver to pry the spring on each side of the plate while feeding it to the machine. This may take a while to get it. It is a trial and error thing but you will get it.
Its a bit of a pain - but with ordinary tools, it can be done. Get the replacement cable first. You can see how the bottom spring wraps around the cable with a universal joint sort of arrangement. Remove the belt protector (three screws from the top deck; if you have a battery compartment, that will temporarily need to go. Release the old cable from the top and middle attachment points, then unhook the spring from the traction lever. You might need to destroy the old cable lock to the mower deck to remove the old cable. Remove the plastic cup next to the cable where it exits the mower deck. Replace parts in this order: New spring/cable to the traction lever, snap in plastic interface to mower deck, small plastic cup top cable attachment, then middle attachment. You might need to move the middle attachment after you give it a test run. Replace belt cover and battery compartment if necessary. A lot of steps but, except for a difficult fit to get the spring hooked up, nothing is really difficult. I paid about $30 for the replacement cable from a local dealer; Overpriced, but I wanted to get the job done today.
The ring is held on the outer lip by a wire and spring which you remove with a small screw driver the back is held by a large hose clamp. I would rcomend just replacing it for the hassle of this relatively difficult repair. Tip use liquid detergant when puttinr spring part back on, it will go back on youll need a little persistance.
Hi Sleepy. When you say "spring" are you talking about the small spring attached between the left-front shock rod and the small red tab on the tub rim, or are you talking about one of the tub support rods/shock absorbers? If it's the latter, it has probably broken and has to be replaced. What I usually see happen is that the rod pulls right out of the angular bracket that supports the rod. if the rod came undone it is very easy to re-install it, you hook the bottom round "bearing" onto the tub, lift the rod up and set the angled bracket back into the corner of the cabinet. if this angled bracket is still attached to the corner and you see a rod and spring, then you broke the shock rod. If this is the case, they are sold in sets of 4 and you can get them here: http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/ecart/item.php?item_id=218&category_id=54
