I believe that once you lift and open the drain cap you can grab it with a cloth and spin it off counter clockwise.

Run cycle is almost three hours on my 6 or 7 year old machine and it's not always cleaning very well. Any suggestions?


First try cleaning out the machine with a gallon of vinegar run through the wash cycle several times. Turn off the water. If you have a manual dial set machine, try to set your machine to come on, at the longest cycle, then add the gallon of vinegar. Stop it before it drains out and reset it to the longest wash cycle again. After the third time you try this, turn the water back on and let it finish the cycle. Alternatively, use a product called Lemi-shine to wash the tub and wash arms out. It may take 2 packages. In the future add 1/4 cup of vinegar to the wash cycle to keep it clean. Secondly, check the float and make sure it is not coated with gunk. Remove it and scrub it out with a strong detergent and hot water. Check to make sure the drain is not blocked in the bottom. To do this, remove the lower tray and put it aside. Then remove the flat plate looking cover ( check ofr a knob that might be screwed down to keep it in place, and remove that.Sometims they screw in reverse.) and look for hidden objects that might be blocking the drain. You can use an old toothbrush to scrub into the corners and around the drain screen to get out the gunk. Then replace everything and give it a run.

I can not close my bath tub drain. the plunger is all internal and wont come out either. I tried a coat hanger to push it down. no go.


on most tubs the stopper is made to come out! does the stopper have 2 screws at the stopper lever. if it does just remove these screws and pull the stopper out slowly. when putting in a new one. have the same length as the old one, then slide it back in the drain fairly slow until it goes all the way in. replace screws and try it! good-day!

I have a Kohler Overflow tub with a faceplate covering the screws that would allow me to get to the trip lever...the lever must be stuck "down" because the tub won't drain. How do I take off...


Hey, I think I've got the solution for your situation.

First off, you want to get a caulk remover and apply that on all the caulking between the tub and the faceplate. Let this soak for 20 minutes. Then you will want to take a utility knife to score around the edges of the faceplate between the faceplate and the tub. Be careful not to scratch the tub! When the caulking has been completely cut through all the way around the face plate, take putty knife and pry the faceplate from the side of the tub. Check out the lever, or see if it is just gunk build up on the filter. Either way I hope this helps, and good luck!

Bike will start but will not respond to throttle. It has been sitting for more than a year with old gas in the system.


you will need to drain all of the old gas. remove carb to clean. remove float bowl. remove jets and clean with spray carb cleaner. use a bit of thin copper wire to probe the jets. count the number of turns to close mixture screw and jot the amount down somewhere. remove mixture screw and spring and clean the bore with carb cleaner. spray into float needle hole to flush out gunk through the top. reassemble, reset mixture screw , fill tank with new gas.

Removing bath drain


There are two types of tub drain stoppers for the delta brand - lift & turn and toe tap.

Lift and Turn:
The lift & turn stopper for the bathtub unscrews counterclockwise while in the full up position.

Toe Tap:
The toe tap stopper does also but if the cap may unscrew from it before the entire stopper comes out. In that case, there is a nut that is now exposed and can be accessed to unscrew the assembly.

If either of these is "spinning" without unscrewing, the threads are stripped and you would need to exert upward pressure while unscrewing in hopes of uncoupling this from the bath waste. If that doesn't work you would have to unscrew the bath waste flange from the drain pipe.
This will require access under the tub. I hope this answer the question for you. Thank you for using FIXYA. Jeff

Hello, how I remove the water from my whirlpool jacuzzi bath Balboa Z112 spa so I can clean it


hook up a garden hose to a faucet. Put the other end in your spa. Then turn on the faucetuntil water comes out the spa end of hose. Make sure the end in the spa is weighted down so it doesn't come out. Then remove the hose from the faucet and keeping it lower than the spa lay the hose where it can drain with causing problems. The water will flow on its own draining the spa. You may want to clean it while its draing so the dirty water will be diluted and drain at thhe same time. Make sure the water is not drained out around any electrical AND!!! NO DIVING!!!! If you lose the prime, just fill the hose again with the faucet. Good luck
