I repair such fiberglass shower pan liners in the Philadelphia > NYC corridor. Generally, this fix should cost you between $150 and $500 depending on the size of the shower and how many people in your area do fiberglassing. I would strongly suggest having the entire shower basin re-fiberglassed as opposed to trying to patch the hole. However, a good fiberglasser should be able to fix this in a couple of hours for a few hundred bucks. If you are in our area, visit www.CFINJ.com and contact us. Brian

My Whirlpool WFW8310sw2 is leaking water during the rinse and spin cycles. After opening the bottom panel, I noticed that the water was coming around the cement. After tracing it, I found out that it is...


Hello, W/D here.
If you washer is still in warranty, you should let the company make it right.
If not, you can make repairs yourself. First, determine why the leak occurred. One common problem is a loose or damaged counterweight. If loose, it will need to be tightened up. I have seen a counterweight that was pre-stressed, with a rod between the mounting points that had broken, allowing the counterweight to hit the strainer. This can be repaired by replacing the counterweight part, or by strongbacking with aluminum, and epoxying the weight back into a solid mass. Epoxy also is useful for repairing cracks in tubs. I roughen up the area to be epoxied and apply fiberglass mesh (the self adhesive wallboard tape) to the area, and then applying J-B weld. I've never had a repair like this break. For your repair, I would recommend that you build the joint up well, with layers of the fiberglass tape and epoxy, and feather the repair out onto the drum surface area several inches. The fiberglass tape can be cut into strips and applied like a bandage, if you need to make wraps. Overlapping the joint of the tape pieces contributes to the overall integrity of the repair. Just don't put down so much tape at one time that the epoxy can't get to the surface of the drum. Several layers, with curing time in between applications is the best way to go. Depending on where the crack is, the repair is easier to apply if the surface is more horizontal than vertical as the epoxy tends to try to run until it sets, so try to place the washer in a good position, if possible. Removing the tub may make this easier for you, but it isn't critical. If you DO remove the tub, make a similar epoxy repair from the inside of the tub, if possible. This will provide greater strength and sealing.
Hope this gives you better options, --W/D--

Water under machine on the floor also some grease residue on the floor after we pulled it away from the wall. 17 year old Whirlpool washer.


Most likely cracked internal hoses that spatter when the unit runs. Easy to fix. The tub and other parts rarely crack if ever. They are molded hoses and easy to get replacements. If they ask too much you can get a substitute (non-molded) at auto parts stores.

Fire flashes from the small right side panel inside the microwave


This is usally a problem with moisture that got between the layers of a mica coverplate. If the burned bubble is in a cover that looks like a hard plastic or fiberglass piece, then you need to replace that mica cover. The cover is usally 3 to 6 inches square or rectangular. Microwaves will arc between the layers if there is moisture in the mica. Good Luck

Water drains onto floor instead of drain tube


can t imagine that the problem is withthe machine, i would actually think that perhaps your drain is backing up and overfiling in to the pan. seems like a more likely scenerio, next time it happens check the walll directly behind the unit undert he drain line if its wet, then id say overflow issue

Washer Shaking Violently on Spin Cycle


Yes, there is...The legs on the washer are adjustable, the rear legs are often ( not always ) self adjusting, make sure the legs are not stuck and that they can move freely. But the front legs can screw in and out to move the washer depending on the floor the washer is sitting on. Make sure the washer is as low to the floor as possible. When the legs are screwed out too far the washer becomes wobbly. Often on the metal style legs there are lock nuts that can be tightened to secure the legs so they don't move on you. washers where really meant to sit on a cement floor, if your washer is on a wooden floor look carefully at the strength of the floor. If the floor is moving up and down when the washer is running, the floor may not be strong enough to support the washers weight. Most main floor laundry rooms floors are nailed down, the sub-floor is more secure if the sub-floor has been screwed down. Sometimes extra support may have to be added under the flooring to add some strength for leaking issues Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked?
Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker.

Kenmore washer, elite 70 series is leaking water on floor


the hose from the drum to the pump, and from the pump to the drain, are at the front,
Movement of the drum during wash cycles, wears the short hose between drum and pump and it develops cracks, eventually a wash load of any size will finally cause one of the cracks to penetrate through the rubber, and constant drip occurs.
Its an easy fix, no more than screwdrivers needed.
the local parts guy will have the hose, even if it is labelled ge frididaire whirlpool the same hose is common to many makes and models

  • turn off water unplug washer
  • pop the endcaps off the control panel, and completely remove the phillips head screw under each endcap dec762a.jpg
  • lilft the control panel ~1inch and flip it over the back of the washer,
    (do not dislodge the water level sensing hose or we'll be back to fix it later, hinges are plastic, dont bust em)
  • remove the two brass clips under the control panel
    (note position for reinstall)
  • remove lid switch connector
  • lift entire body up ~1 inch and remove forward
  • motor pump hoses gearbox are now exposed.
examine hose from drum to pump, and from pump to cabinet rear,
replace cracked and crazed hoses.
reassemble in reverse order

Washer LG Model WD-8013F Noisy & vibrates badfly when spinning


hi all you poor owners of this heap of junk, i have one too with the same problems, the shaking and moving around the bathroom was stopped by welding a 1/2 inch long piece of 1 &1/2 inch dia pipe to a 2 inch square flat plate of steel then putting double sided sticky tape beetween the plate and the floor
where you want the front rubber legs to sit, this stops it from running around the floor but it still needs to adjusted to have the
same on the front two legs to stop the shaking.by leaning the machine back a bit also helps to stop it leaking so bad while filling, it is only from the condersation from the hot water going in and the poor design of the soap drawer not allowing the water to run back into the washer which can be fixed by cutting the lip off
the bottom wher the drawer slides in then running a bead of silcone in the crack between the front cover and the inside piece
then another one on the front edge to run the water back into the washer. hpoe this helps. bryan.

BAD INSTALLATION ON LG 4.00 WM2496H*M TROMM WASHER.!!!!!!!!!!!


The storage bottoms are ok in quality, and do give you more space. They are built for just the use of the washer/dryer they are made for, so they will hold up. Best idea, is when you get your base units, tell the store you want a new pan liner installed as well. You may also want to tell the store that the installation personel who set up your new machine broke the last one and you want some sort of credit, free delivery, new pan liner, discount, etc. All stores (Home Depot, Lowes, Sears, Ace) that carry plumbing products, appliances, etc, will carry a heavy duty floor pan for your unit. Good luck and let me know if you need further information. Jim
