W113 washer drum is loose inside

I had the same problem. I stripped my machine down when they told me it would cost 1200.00 to replace the bearing. I found out after taking it apart it wasn't the bearing. It was the bearing shaft assembly shaft mounting bracket that is made of cast aluminum and the metal was corroded beyond repair. I called Miele and you have to buy the whole inner tub assembly 517.00 plus tax and shipping. I will also replace the bearings as well.

Just bought brand new mountain bike and cant put front wheel on due to the front forks being slightly twisted suspension forks they are

That sounds like a manufacturing defect without seeing it. You may consider returning to where you purchased it. New bikes generally come with a one year warranty against manufacturing defects and materials, so if it is new then they should be able to give you a new part.

Most professional bike shops have a set of what are called "H" tools that are designed to align dropouts on front forks and the rear drop outs. If a bike mechanic has been properly trained and has the experience then he/she will know how to use them.

However these tools are not recommended for use on front shock drop outs. Most shocks have the sliders with the drop outs cast into them. They are usually cast out of aluminum. Cast aluminum has a very low yield point and will easily break and snap in two if they are bent. The "H" tools mentioned above are designed to be used on forks and drop outs made from steel, which has a much higher modulus of elasticity or yield point, and they can be bent, tweaked and coaxed back into alignment without compromising the metal.

Front shock lower sliders are held together and aligned at the factory with a "U" type brace that goes over the tire. This allows the two legs of the shocks to travel in unison. Most front shocks have these two sliders and the U brace cast as one piece to eliminate the need for manual alignment of the drop outs. So if one of your drop outs is tweaked so that the wheel doesn't fit, then it most likely got damaged in shipping and I would have to assume that you did not purchase it assembled from a local (to you) bike shop. You may need to take it up with the shipping company or with where you originally purchased the bike to get this rectified.

How do you load staples in the Stanley TRA 700?

Howdy, pull out the plunger to its farthest and turn stapler upside down (staple output pointing up) and lay staples in track (in front of plunger) then push plunger back in.

Super handy when you get used to it:)

We have a kenmore elite washer mod. 970-c40062-00 ser. xc11700832. the washer leaks, and is very noisy. It is 10 years old

Your Stainless Steel drum is supported inside of the washer tub by a spider assembly. The assemply, which is made of cast aluminum, has corroded (steel and aluminum and detegent don't mix) and the spider assembly has broken. The drum has likely wobbled enough to wear a hole through the tub. You need to replace the drum and spider assembly, and tub.

I think the brake squeaks on agitation cycle with FULL load.

The brake assembly is accessed from underneath the machine with the pulley removed and requires a special tool to compress the 150lb compression spring in order to remove the brake stator. This tool can be purchased from an appliance parts retailer.

Eurotech front loading washer, noisy on spin cycle with load.

Hi, could be one of at least two things - if the inner drum can be moved up and down by hand more than an inch when you grab it through the open door it could be the drum bearings that have failed - not good. Usually accompanied by a grinding noise and dirty specks on the clothes.
If the outer drum is really loose in the casing - check with machine unplugged and top removed - then one or more of the very strong springs at the top or the telescopic dampers at the bottom might have come off or broken from it's mounting.

Hope this helps!
If it doesn't, please hold off the rating button and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
