Washing machines are generally very easy to fix

Instead of typing out directions on how to do it, I found a website with some directions that should work with your machine, and you can always find more, washing machines are pretty simple machines. If the belt looks worn, it wouldn't be a bad time to replace it too. Also, clean everything up as you take it apart and it should be almost like brand new.

here is the link I found with pictures and everything, let me know if you have any questions while doing this, good luck

    Can you replace iPad batteries

    It can be done, but Apple has sealed the iPads and DIYer can Google for procedures. This is an "at your own risk" issue because it is very easy to break the bezel or glass trying to do this yourself.

    02 denali rear main seal

    This is a pretty big job for a DIYer. You have to pull the transmission to get to it. If you're up for it I can tell you how. It will probably be a 2 day job if you only have moderate auto knowledge.

    INSTALL 2003 2.7 Dodge intrepid oil pump

    You are not going to like my suggestion. Either go online and search for a maintenance manual for your vehicle and purchase it or go to a local parts store and purchase one there.

    The procedure to do what you are asking is very long, many pages of typing and photos a required to accomplish what you ask and it is different for every vehicle.

    You can also do a search online about doing this and you might get lucky and find a procedure already written up, but I'm betting on you needing the manual in hand to accomplish this task, even with online instructions.

    Or you can pay a mechanic to do it for you and if you do not have all the tools required to pull the oil pan and even possibly the engine from the vehicle, it might be cheaper.

    Good luck.

    My gmc envoy xl 2004 wont start and before this it would cut out like it was running out of gas but always had gas also the dash board light will start flashing like crazy on there own

    The first thing I would suspect is the ignition switch, these have been known to cause all kinds of problems when they go bad. If you are handy, it can be replaced by a DIYer. Go to and do a search on ignition switch replacement, for instructions on how to do it.

    How to bleed my hayes 9 hyrdrilici brakes?

    This is a fairly complicated procedure if you have not done it before. You will need the correct replacement oil and some specialty tools, and possible a few parts if they are damaged or seals are in need of replacement. It may be better to take this into your local bike shop and have them do it. Bleeding brakes is a time consuming and challenging task even for seasoned mechanics.

    Rust marks from a stainless steel drum?

    If you are talking about brownish colored stains on your clothes, this is actually caused by the drum seal going bad. The drum seal fits around the perimeter of the drum where it meets the rear bulkhead (wall) of the dryer and is a felt type material. One some dryers the drum is reversible and there is a seal on both ends of the drum. When the seal gets old, it becomes brittle and starts to crack and come apart. There's usually a brownish colored pigment that comes off the seal and can get on your clothes. If the seal is worn too much, your clothes could actually be getting caught in the drum between the seal and being dragged. This will also caused brown streaks on your clothes. Now...what causes the seal the wear prematurely are high temperatures. If you do not routinely clean your dryer ducting, your dryer could actually be overheating. This can cause the seal to become too hot and make it brittle over a period of time. Any appliance repair dealer will carry the drum seals for the dryer as it is a common part that requires replacement. If you could post back with your EXACT model number (located around the door opening) I could find a part number and price for you. In addition, I could give you step-by-step instructions on how to replace the seal if you wish to tackle this on your own. It's not a difficult repair and the average consumer should be able to accomplish this task. It will also save you $$ on the long run if you don't want to pay high labor charges of the appliance repair guy. Let me know if I can assist you further.
