That sounds like it came off of your small apliances (blender, food prosecer...) there is not any rubber washers on the inside of 99.9% of dishwashers becauss thay can melt in the heat.

Opening the PL-Z81 box after standing packaged for quite some time -I saw that the turntable had come apart and that there were four pieces - a silver dish (the turn table) --the rubber mat that sits on...

Ok! On the main part of the turntable should be a spindle, not the one in the middle! That if you put your finger on will turn. This is the motor. On the underside of the silver dish should be a flange. Place the belt round it and put the platter on the center spindle (the one in the middle). If the platter has a hole in it, grab the belt and pull it, while rotating the platter till you can see the motor spindle. Attach the belt to that. Put the rubber matt on and try it out.
The black piece is for 45's with big holes in them (jukebox ones).
PS if the platter hasn't a hole you will have to put the belt on the motor spindle first and then around the flange (try not to pull the belt to much).
Also some turntables pass the belt via a leaver that lifts the belt up and down for 45 and 33 speeds, others just change the motor speed.

A part came off and dont know where it belongs

You will need to lift felt on the platter section exposing the platter. Next you will need to pull upwards on the platter itself. The rubber band goes around the inside of the platter and onto the spindle motor. To replace, simply lift platter section of the unit, place the belt around the inside of the platter and replace the platter. Move the platter around till you see the motor and use some tweesers to pull the belt over the motor. Hope this helps

How do i change a head light bulb

open bonnet, goto the broken headlight. take off the connector from the back of the headlight, it has three wires going into it and is a cube type shape - the size of a sugarcube, probably black - pull this off gently by holdding the black connector only, do not pull the wires, wiggle it a little if it feels stuck (you dont need much force). Now there's the rubber seal on the headlight pull off this rubber seal, be careful not to stretch it too much or it could tear, be gentle with this too. Now you see some clip-type things and the connector sticking out of the back of the headlight. the clips have two round bits on the end, this is so you can squeese them together between thumb and forefinger. -------- squeeze both sides of the clips together, then pull them gently away from the headlight, the clips should now be in the unlocked position and hanging down loosely. you can now pull out the broken bulb noting its orientation so you put the new one in the right way round.
then put the clips back, (squeese them together and push them closed against the bulb then stop squeezing and let the clips go into their little notches to lock the bulb back in place. (simpler than it sounds) replace the rubber seal, making sure it sits as straight and flat as it did before, or you will get water in your lights! replace the connector - make sure it is fully home and is a snug fit. switch on and test. DONE!

Water leaks out of bottom of machine olny when starting a cycle not during a active wash cycle ONLY WHEN FILLING UP

This can happen when the rubber pipe that connects between the electric tap and the washing tank got disconnected .
Usually it happens after washing fully load machine with towel, blankets etc.
Open the back of the machine and check the rubber pipe, if loose or out of position get it back in to place and tight the metal bands that hold it .

BIG LEAK!!!!!!

If you haven't torn or otherwise damaged the gasket or metal band, you can put it back on. It's a bit of a workout, as the metal band is pretty tight, but that's what they do at the factory. I think you might be able to do it more easily with the front removed.
