First your pump should be connected to to a GFCI protected circuit. If this is indeed a new motor check your connections. Make sure you don't have any bare wires touching the metal, however the ground should be connected, and therefore you should have a short. Make sure your #6 copper ground wire to outside of pump and motor is connected. Do you have an underwater light? If so, be sure it is off, perhaps it was on and the shock was a coincidence? You can connect a tester to the outside of the motor, and to ground (water faucet?) and you should get no voltage reading.

It was spinning and started jumping around. Know now it needs new shocks. BUT THEN it stopped mid cycle. Door lock light on but no further action.


IT MAY BE UR SHOCKS BUT COULD ALSO BE THE DAMPER STRAPS, THE COUNTER WEIGHTS, BALANCE SPRINGS ETC ETC U HAVE TO REMOVE PANEL OR CABINET AND HAVE A LOOK
YOU MAY BE ABLE TO UNPLUG IT A FEW MINUTES AND RESET MOTOR BOARD./

Rear shocks (van 150000 miles) originals still on Recently installed 2.2 Legacy Engine people sugges KYB gas shocks I have Biltiens *new) on front


Bilsteins are about the best shocks you can buy.

With those miles (150000) on the van I would have also replaced all 4 springs and all 4 shocks., It is stupid to put new shocks on the front and leave worn out shocks on the rear . - The rear shock absorbers should also be replaced with new items.
(Springs are inexpensive to replace so I am surprised you did not renew them because it should be done. The old ones will have sagged significantly by now.)

Do i need a spring compresser to be able to remove the front shocks


No you do not need to compress the springs to install new shocks. Todays shocks have a nitrogen charge; you'll note your new shocks will have a cable on them. Install the lower portion of the shock, next with the upper end aimed to where you want it to go, cut the cable holding the shock back. The nitrogen within the shock will cause it to slowly extend. If you cut the cable prior to install you'll need to compress the shock and wire in down in to place for install.
Please let me know if this helped,
Tom

Need to replace my shocks and my water pump how should i start and the process of doing this


Greetings: Do you have your tools ready? You will need rachets, sockets, wrenches, DW4, breaker bar, new water pump with gasket sealer, a torque wrench and energy.
Let's get started on the shock absorbers first and loosen up your lug nuts and raise the rear of your truck and place it securely on jackstands. Remove the rear wheels. Position a floor jack under the differential and raise the jack just enough to take the weight off the axle. Remove the shock absorber top and bottom mounting nuts/bolts (you might need some WD4 Lubricant on the nuts and bolts) and remove the shock absorber. Installation is the reverse of removal but please make sure the spacer is installed on the inner side of the shock absorber. Tighten the mounting nuts and bolts to the proper torque for you truck. Do the same procedure for the front shock absorbers. That wasn't too hard was it.
Now let's change the water pump. First turn off your radio in the car so that when we disconnect the batter negative post and hook it back up we will not damage key components of the radio. Now disconnect the cable from the negative side of the battery. Next drain the cooling system coolant from the radiator into a pan. Remove the fan and shroud (that's the protection around the fan). Make a quick drawing on how the fan or drivebelts are hooked up and then remove the belts. Remove the pulley at the end of the water pump. Loosen the clamps on the water hoses and pull the hoses from the water pump. They might be tough to come off so use a pair of adjustable pliers and use them to grab each hose near the end and twist it to break the seal and then pull them off of the water pump. You might have to cut them off if they have been on too long and deteriorated. When you get read to reinstall put on new hoses.
Remove anything else such as a timing belt cover, if it is holding the water pump in. Remove the bolts from the water pump that locks the pump to the engine. Remove the water pump. Now its time to install the new pump. Clean the bolt threads and threaded holes in the engine, also the top of the engine where the old gasket was with a scraper, and lacquer thinner to remove gasket material, corrosion and old sealant. This is very important make sure the new pump matches the old one exactly or you will have to start all over after the pump is assembled and the car is ready to go because it will leak when the car is hot and under pressure. After all is clean, apply a thin coat of gasket sealant to the engine side of the new gasket. Next apply a thin layer of gasket sealant to the new water pump and then carefully mate the gasket and water pump. Install the water pump to the top of the engine (cylinder head) and carefully attach the pump, gasket and seal to the engine. Secure the water pump with two nuts, finger tight. Now this is important, pry the water pump up toward the cylinder head and install the remaining bolts. Tighten the bolts and nuts to the proper torque for your truck in 1/4-turn increments. (don't over tighten or you could cause damage or problems. Reinstall all parts removed earlier in reversed order. Make sure the radiator outlet is closed and add new antifreeze and part water. Check the drive-belt tension and crank your engine and let it run while you look for leaks. Hope I have been helpful and good luck.

Kitchenaid Dishwasher makes jack hammer sound when filling


Check the power to the valve actuator with a meter. If the power is not fluctuation (causing the valve to open and close quickly) then the problem is likely "water hammer" in the piping leading to the DW. Water hammer occurs when a fast flow of water turns a corner in the piping. The solution is too find where the pipe is vibrating and add support. Another way to eliminate water hammer is to install a shock tube on the pipe. It is filled with air and acts as a shock absorber when the water hammers. They are available at Home Depot, Lowes, plumbing supply places, etc. Another way to make a shock absorber is to install a tee in a horizontal part of the pipe with an 18 inch+ piece of pipe installed vertically and capped at the top. Air gets trapped in the vertical pipe and cushions the vibration. You might be able to do this in the space behind the DW before the pipe connects to the DW. The shock tube is smaller and does not have to be vertical so if space is an issue that may be the way to go.

Kenmore 90 series washing machine


there is a coupling between the gearbox and the motor, it is broken, it is easy to replace, and inexpensive
the coupler can be purchased at a local parts store
'Kenmore motor/gearbox coupler' will get it for you, there is only on for all the models.
it is an easy fix
  • unplug washer
  • remove trim ends of control panel
  • remove phillips head screws from bottoms of control panel under where trim was
  • slide control panel forweard & up about 1 inch, then flip over the back of the control panel, do not dislodge the air hose
  • remove brass clips in rear corners of top with screwdriver, remember how they fit
  • unplug lid switch connector
  • lift body 1inch and slide forward to remove
  1. front center is the motor pump and gearbox
  2. do NOT disconnect hoses
  • remove spring clips holding pump on to motor shaft, note where they go for reinstall. there may be a lock screw in the top right clip.
  • swing pump to the left and use a string or bread bag tie to hold it out of the way.
  • remove spring clips holding motor to gearbox shaft, note where they go for reinstall. there may be a lock screw in the top right clip.
  • heave motor forward, to separate the coupling
  • remove coupling halves from gearbox shaft and motor shaft and discard.
  • using a wooden dowel and hammer, on the center of the new coupling halves, drive them onto the motor and gearbox shafts, (dont hit the fingers, they break, note the new couplings have metal centres to solve ongoing problems.)
  • rotate gearbox coupling, 1 up 2 down
  • rotate motor coupling, 2 up 1 down
  • install rubber shock pad on gearbox coupling
  • install motor on shock pad
  • reinstall spring clips and lock screw if fitted (bottom first, rock the motor on rubber shock mount to ease spring clip installation)
  • rotate motor shaft to align with pump input
  • install pump on motor shaft
  • install spring clips and lock screw if fitted
reinstall body in reverse order

it takes less time to do the repair than it takes to type this
