There are some worn, rusty spots on the lower basket of our Magtag. These are small spots where the plates rest against the tines. Are there any products to repair the plastic finish?

You can buy tine caps and repair goop at an appliance repair shop, however once rust has penetrated it is generally hard to stop

Correction. How do you install the bobbin case for the Singer XL 420 sewing machine

Please refer to pages 102 to 104 of your service manual. You will have to remove the two screws in the plate covering the feed dogs to insert the case, and identify the top of the case, which is the flat part. There is a part that sticks out and it should be on the right towards the bottom. That part must rest against a small silver spring to prevent the case from rotating in the bobbin basket while sewing. It is easier if the bobbin case is inserted slightly clockwise, then rotated into position. It is illustrated on those pages.

On the Futura XL models, it is easy to insert the case so that it is just sightly lopsided, so visually inspect it to make sure that all four sides rest evenly in the basket.

It is also essential that you FREQUENTLY clean both the top and bottom areas, as illustrated on those pages, about once every 5 hours of sewing, or if you're experiencing problems. You also might want to put ONE drop of ONLY sewing machine oil in the center of the basket at the same time.

Where can I buy new loading baskets for my DWI 160 dishwasher?

These come as several parts. Not sure if all are available anymore as Candy parts. But you can get replacement Hoover parts to fit.

Main basket from Candy
Candy DWI 160W UK Dishwasher Basket

Cutlery basket from Candy
Candy DWI 160W UK Universal Cutlery Basket

The Upper and Lower baskets may not be available from Candy but Hoover replacements are
Candy Use HVR41022779 Lower Basket

Best to ask Candy support to provide pictures of the parts for comparison with your model or purchase or a refund policy if not suitable.

There is another site worth checking (but prices seem high)

Which side of the seal plate gasket goes against the basket

The side with the 1 1/4 inch (about) indention encircling the shaft hole faces toward the basket. That is where the seal is set. The other side of the seal sets into the impeller with the white side showing outward.

How to load a dishwasher

Hello Lona Harrington, here is how the manual for my fridgearie dishwasher tells me and how I load it .
1. Upper Rack is for smaller items. Cups, small bowls,sippy cups, plastic bowls. all face down.2. Lower Rack is for larger items. Plates pots and pans. The plates should be upright. pots and pans face down.3. flatware basket. This is ware I disagree with the book manual. The manual says to put the tines of the fork facing upright and the same for the knives. I have young children and they are great helpers, but I don't want them hurt so I put all the sharp points down.Manuals are available on line free Hope this helpsJoe

On a 06 yamaha vstar 650 i installed a new clutch but are the plates suppose to move when clutch is disengaged?? if so what is the gap suppose to be and how do u adjust it

Clutch drive plates (usu. has friction pads and tabs on outer rim) alternate with Clutch driven plates that are smooth with teeth on inner rim. These slot into clutch "basket" and clutch hub. (the basket is driven via the crank and the hub drives the gearshafts) They are bound by the springs and endcaps bolted to the pressure plate in the basket. The plate movement or spread is negligable, 10-15mm spread over 13 plates. This spread is goverened by the actuating step gear thruster which cannot be adjusted.
The lever adjustment is for the amount a free play and the crankcase adjustment governs take-up spot; where resting lever returns the thruster. this can effectively allow the clutch to drive whilst having slack at lever, or vice versa.
Hope this is helpfull, Cheers.

Slipping clutch

clutch basketYou will need the fibre clutch plates and I would be replacing the clutch springs because the 400 had weeker springs than the 450 (04YM). Also check if the metal plates are blue this is a sign they are bernt and they may need replacing if it has been slipping for a period of time. Use 10w 40 oil. Motul or Motoex oil they are good and go genuine some non genuine plates can swell and cause drag. Sometimes the basket may have small wear marks on the fingers. If it has you can clean them up with a file but dont take to much off. The only other reason you would replace the basket is if the damper rubbers between the basket and big gear are worn.Try and move the gear and hold the basket, if the gear moves the dampers are worn and need replacing, I think you can get the dampers seperate. If you go to a good Gas Gas dealer you wont get riped off, I would take your plates in and ask for the mechanic for advice and not the parts person.,,,

Knife Holder and tine adjuster fall off

This problem would be so easy for Kenmore to correct by simply redesigning and replacing these knife holders....but Until such time as Kenmore responsibly reacts, I recommend remounting the holder to the side of the basket at a better angle using your knife with the longest handle as a guide) usng plastic ties such as used as handcuffs and cable ties. (Not pretty, but effective).
