Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, ive just purchased a newish used singer 6038 sewing machine, every time i try to sew the thread keeps coming out of the needle and it is not sewing at all, ive checked the tension, checked i have threaded it correctly and the bobbin. While i was changing the needle, it accidently dropped through into the machine, so i had to take the whole bobbin case to pieces, could not find needle, think its gone to bottom of machine, but im not sure whether i have put the whole lot back correctly..could this be the problem? Also the big round steel ring that the bobbin case goes into moved, and im wondering if this has made it out of line for sewing..Hope someone can help..Maria.

Hi Yes if the bobbing case is not put back correctly it can cause all sorts of problems. Do you have the instruction book for the machine? If so just have a look through and it should show you in detail how to take the bobbin and case out to clean it, then with these instructions you should be able to fit it correctly. Otherwise if you have a look at the metal case that the bobbin case fits into (its called a hook race) and there should be markers like an arrow or lines, when the bobbin case is fitted back in these markers are lined up and there also should be a notch at the front of the case and this sits to the left of the stopper. Just make sure there are no threads caught up in the hook race, that can stop your machine from working too. The only thing that I can think could be causing your thread to come out is the tension but if you've checked that just try and fix the bobbin, this may be all thats wrong. Good luck, hope this helps.

Whirlpool duet washer fabric softener dispenser does not empty


Hi there
I wonder why, mine does though I never use a fabric softener, the water just runs through. It must be clogged somewhere, the only solution I have is the old one. The needle and the thread,try puting a needle through then pull the thread back and forth.
I hope it works

Most manufacturers will let you print out the service manuals free on their website.You'll need to figure out where the tag is with the model #.(My wife was able to get a manual for a Singer sewing machine that was almost 110 years old from the Singer site!)

Our agitator on the Simpson esprit450, keeps slowly coming loose after we tighten the bolt using an extension, does it need a washer under the bolt or a new agitator ????


Hi just read your posting.1st thing to do is to undo the screw holding the agitator to the shaft and lift the agitator out.Then purchase some Loctite thread lock from you local hardware store.Put some thread lock on the thread of the bolt and re screw the agitator back in place.Leave the machine for 24 hours and this will fix you problem.I use this method when I am repairing machines for customers.Please reply if you need further help and also to let me know how you got on.Good luck and hear from you soon.

Singer sewing machine model 9410 - Seems like each time I change bobbin I have trouble sewing. 1. Plastic case bobbin sits in comes loose - finally think I have metal bar over that securely. 2. It's...


I have the same problem and the part that the bobbin sits in is called a STITCH LENGTH CONTROL CRANK Part number 312801 That's all I could find out. Unfortunately for me - that little lip on that part broke off. I didn't realize it had come loose and when I changed out the bobbin - crunch! Do you know where to get parts online???
