Yes...depending on WHERE the hole is, it will leak into the interior cabinet of the washer. If serious enough, you can damage the interior electrical components such as the Motor Control Unit or Drain Pump. Not to mention, the water will also leak on to your floor. I would recommend replacing it. The following link explains how:

If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Check the little holes around the drum, I have seen pins and needles get stuck in these and cause lots of damage. I would replace the seal.

It gets stuck on the pool drain

There are a couple solutions that you might want to try with these pool cleaners if they are getting stuck on your drain. First, check your water flow and make sure that it is sufficient to move the cleaner. Make sure that the shoes and wings are not worn. If you have worn shoes, they could be sticking on the drain instead of passing smoothly over it. Finally, check for any blockages in the throat or hoses.

We have a computer model T3092. The compact disc section wont pen and it has a cd stuck in there. How to open?


Look closely at the front of the drive. There is a small hole, usually right under the slot door. Get a paper clip and unroll it. Push the paper clip straight through the hole. You should be able to feel it when it releases the catch on the drive door.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

make a very small hole on the cartrige where there are stickers to pour ink. some times the track holes are blocked and cartige cannot make the ink gravitate down on paper because of negative pressure in catrige if above procedure fails , pour a little asopropane alcohol about 10 drops with a ink syringe, this will dilute the thick ink
the holes on the head are blocked some times so apply isopropane alcohol rub the cartige very gently on a isopropane tissue paper .even a face cleaner which has isopropane on it can help you..i mean tissues with isopropane
you also have to **** the head like just what we do for writing ink pens when the ink dries our\t

Unplugged to move wires now not working

Hi. I had this same problem about six months ago.

There is a RESET button somewhere on the console, i don't remember exactly where. If you plug it in and hit the reset button, it should boot up. Unfortunately, you'll have to set up the network again.

Good Luck!

How to take empty cartridges out

1. Cover the outlet hole with the orange outlet seal that came with the cartridge (a rubber band will hold this in place) to prevent ink loss during refilling or with your finger over the outlet port while wearing latex gloves .

2. Use the "L tool" provided to push the Sealing Ball into the cartridge (tap on the 'L tool' if the ball is stuck). If you can't see the ball just above the "push" then peel back the top label on the reservoir side of the cartridge to expose the Sealing Ball. This is the ball Canon used to plug up the hole after they refilled the cartridge.

3. Attach the needle to the syringe and fill with the correct color ink.

4. Slowly inject approximately 13 ml. of Black Ink or 6 ml of Color Ink slowly into the filling hole until the chamber is almost full. Unused ink may be returned to the bottle.

5. Seal the hole using the Green Plug. Put your finger on the green plug and twist until it is seated well in the hole.

6. Remove the orange outlet seal (or your finger) from the outlet hole.

7. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.

8. If you have trouble getting your cartridge to print and the sponge side of the cartridge looks dry then drill a hole (or burn a hole with a hot paper clip) into the top of the sponge side of the cartridge. Stick the syringe needle into the sponge and fill with ink. You do not need to seal this hole.

If you are filling cartridges to use later, leave the orange outlet seal rubber banded onto the cartridge. This will prevent your sponge from drying out.
Note: On the CLI-8 and PGI-5 series cartridges, there is an electronic counter embedded in a small computer chip/board. This counter starts at a high number and decreases for every character printed. Eventually, the counter reaches zero. At this point, an error message is generated by the printer. If you click "OK" to the error message, the printer will continue to print.
If you have trouble getting your printer to print because it thinks the cartridges are empty. Look on your printer for an orange blinking light. This is your reset button, usually the paper feed button also. Hold this button in for 5 seconds until the light goes out. Note: this will not reset the ink level back to full.

How do i put ink

You can drill a small hole to the top of the cartridge so that the ink dropper can fit, just a few drops is needed, it is better to put less then more else it will ooze out and make a mess on the paper and in the printer. Remember to reseal the holes with the supplied plugs. I have found sealing with scotch tape is just as good.
