If keyboard function doesn't return in next 24 hrs, I'd replace the keyboard

if that doesn't resolve the motherboard would be next

    If you replace the keyboard, and the problem still exists, then the assumption is that the keyboard controller was damaged by the spill. It being a part of the motherboard, replacing the motherboard is the next logical step if the keyboard replacement fails to resolve the problem.

Sticky buttons


Lifting it up may break the buttons.... Can you try using cotton bud and try cleaning it; if it can enter without forcing it; dip it in a methylated spirit and apply it gently.

Does not drain


Hello, the problem is gravity. Do the following test: disconnect the drain hose from the PVC drainage. Then bring the end of the drain hose as low as possible closer to the ground, preferably place a tilted bucket so you can catch the water instead of just spilling it on the floor. If the draining occurs, then the issue is gravity.

Solution: lift the dishwasher by placing it on a dolly or wood frame and see if the height is enough for the water to drain itself by gravity force.

Or > install a draining pump. Costly but effective.

How do I remove the keyboard from Asus K50IJ ?


Try these steps:
1. Place your laptop on a clean, flat surface and remove all power sources from it. Open your laptop screen as far as you can.
2. Use the flathead screwdriver to pop open the hinge cover. Slowly and carefully pry it open from the right side to the left side, exposing the Asus keyboard screws. Using the Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws that hold the Asus K50IJ Keyboard in place. Keep these screws in a safe place.
3. Gently tug the Asus K50IJ Keyboard component toward your laptop screen. You are trying to pull it out of the slot that is located near the palm rest and mouse pad. It doesn't take much force, but you must be firm. Once you have pulled it out of the slot, you can lift it up and remove it from your laptop.

How do I drain the barrel


If this is a top loading washer, an easy method of draining the wash tub is to pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and lower it into a bucket. Gravity will allow the water to drain. If the washer is in a laundry room or utility room with a drain in the floor, you can simply lay the drain hose on the floor and allow it to run into the drain.

A less messy method is to use a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the drain line to pull the water from the wash tub. Most of the these top loaders have a capacity of about 30 gallons, so you will need to empty the shop vac a few times to empty the tub. Make sure you place the drain hose back into the standpipe when you need to empty the vacuum or gravity will force the water on to your floor.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

How to open keyboard


look for a thin piece of plastic strip that runs the full width of the keyboard near its top. Pry this off gently starting with a jewelers screwdriver (careful not to score plastic). after this is out, lift the keyboard out and disconnect the electric flex circuit.
