Question about Dishwashers

Door rubs on new tile floor. How do I fix this.

New tile are ready to install. As I was trying the tile to be sure the door jams were cut to the right height and to decide where to put the cut tiles pieces, I realized that the front door drags over the tile.. I have taken the area down to subflooring and have used 1/4 inch concreat board. The tiles are also about 1/4 inch thick. The frontdoor is metal
so shaving bottom is not an option. HELP

The best way to solve this is to remove the door and re-install it at the desired height. Last resort - cut jambs off, raise the threshold. cut the top off the door, reblock it and move it up in the jamb. Yes, I have done this before, when there was no room to raise the door. I managed a door shop and we cut and reblocked many steel doors at the top. I like to use construction adhesive to hold the block.

Arcylic shower base installed backwards


If it were mine... I'd kick myself several times (yeah, I've done stuff like that), then bring in a 4" angle grinder with a cutoff wheel. That would cut the flange MUCH faster - and generate far fewer sparks - than a belt sander. Work really carefully, though, and maintain really close control so the angle grinder absolutely stays level while you work. In fact, this would be a good spot to make up a special little jig to keep the angle grinder level and supported at one uniform height all the way across the door.

Go to armstrong installation guides on the web, they should give you hints on things like cutting around door jambs etc. And yes you can score and snap. Make sure you get a heavy score into it though

I am wondering what cork flooring is. I am needing to fix something with my floor and someone told me I needed a new cork flooring. I don't understand.


I am not sure what flooring you have at the moment but sounds to me like someone is trying to sell you something. IF you already have cork flooring then it can be repaired, get another opinion from some other company. cork flooring comes in tiles that are laid down like other tiles with glue, it is recycled cork that has been compressed/glued/heated into flat hard sheets then cut into tile squares kind of like particle board. inexpensive and soft under the feet, good insulter as well. hope this gives you some clarity. always get a second opinion. take care, good luck.

Can ceramic tile be installed over old ceramic tile?


You can install tile over tile. However here are the risks. The new tiles will require at least 3/16" of tile adhesive UNDER the tiles when put in place after they have been pressed into position. Additionally the trim around the tiles willhave to be removed and elevated the distance of the tile thickness and the 3/16" grout distance. The tiles if on the second floor of a home will easily losen due to the expansion and contraction of the home and the difference in the 2 types of tiles expansion and contraction rates.

It is not difficult to remove old tiles. You use a flat bar type scraping tool and the old tiles usually will pop right up off the floor. You will have to break maybe 2 tiles to get started but after that they are easy to remove.

My experience in my own fully tiled in all rooms 2900 sq ft home in the tropics is that I have to remove the old tiles as over time the new tiles losen on top of the old tiles. I have tried it several times and have had at least 1 tile come loose each time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

1 yr old lg dishwasher model# ldf6810st LEAK/CONDENSATION


TOO ALL SAMSUNG LDF AND POSSIBLE OTHER LG DISWASHER USERS:
LG NEGLECTED MY CALLS TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. THE DRIPPING PROBLEM FROM THE CORNERS OCCURS:
1- VENT ASSEMBLY FOR HOT AIR BLOWER SEAL LEAKS: EASY TO FIX JUST USE A GOOD QUALITY CAULK AROUND THE SEAM. YOU WILL HAVE TO DISMANTLE THE BLOWER ASSEMBLY WHIXH IS FAIRLY EASY.
2- THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: LG HAS A DESIGN FAULT. WHEN THE DISHWASHER FILLS WATER AND STARTS PUMPING TO SPRAYS THE AIR INSIDE THE DW HAS NO WHERE TO GO THEREFORE THE WATER WAS PUSHED UNDER THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR GASKETS (THE ONE ATTACHED TO THE DOOR BOTTOM, NOT THE ONE AROUND THE MAIN CABIN). SO AIR WITH WATER PUFFS OUT OF THE PAN HITS THE DOOR AND LEAKS DOWN. THE SOLUTION IS TO LET THE AIR OUT SOMEHOW. YOU MUST TRY TO PUSH-IN THE DOOR GASKET WHICH IS SEALING LEFT/RIGHT/TOP PART OF THE CABIN AND THE DOOR. IF YOU PUSH TOO MUCH THE WATER MAY LEAK FROM THE SEALS SO BE CAREFUL NOT TOO PUSH TOO MUCH. BASICALLY TRIAL AND ERROR. YOU CAN DO THAT AFTER YOU REMOVE THE DOOR COVER. THE LEAKAGE OCCURS IN THE BEGINNING OF THE CYE SO IT IS FAIRLY EASY TO TRY. IF THAT IS NOT A SUCCESS THEY DROP OF CAULK ON THE ONE OF THE DOOR EDGE TO PUSH THE GASKET SO THAT THE DOOR PUSHES IN THE GASKET TO ALLOW AIR OUT RIGHT AROUND THE CAULK. NORMALLY DISHWASHERS HAVE AN ELECTRICALLY ACTUATED OUTLET TO LET THE AIR OUT. THEY JUST WANTED TO SAVE COST AND HAVE US DEAL WITH THIS RIDICULOUS PROBLEM.
