Congratulations, it may help you if you use a bit of water with a bit of detergent as lubricant when snapping back the rubber gasket in place.

Samsung washer WF328AAW/XAA metal pieces in hose?

Could be a number of things. Either something foreign was left in a pocket (Coins are the most common object) and has come out in the wash. The coin rattles around and falls in between the tubs through the gap in the front gasket. When this happens, the coin can hit the bracket which holds the heater element in place and tears it off. This causes a lot of damage. Most Samsung have plastic outer bowls and often, the tub will be split and a leak will start from underneath. Lastly, it could be the drum main shaft and spider assembly. This is what holds the spin tub into the machine. If this fails, bits of metal will come off. Usually seen as bits of corroded aluminium that get stuck in the pump and hoses. When this happens, the tub usually goes loose and the machine makes a horrible grinding and banging noise when spinning. I would say that if this has happened , its time for a new machine.

How to change the freezer gasket on a Sub-Zero 650?

In my opinion this the easiest sub zero door gasket to install.The main reason for this is because of the way its packaged in the box from the factory.Not being twisted up makes it way easier then any of the others. And yes the first thing to do is remove the food and then pull the drawer out. Then loosen all the the quarter inch screws holding the metal strip that keeps the gasket in place but don't remove them just loosen. Once those are lose remove the old gasket. You should also remove the screws on the end of each metal strip. This helps when re-installing the new gasket. Now put freezer door face down with both rails sticking straight in the air and you can drop the gasket over the rails. The gasket has a small round bead that tucks in behind the metal strip. As you tuck this behind the strip work your way around the door snug in the screws be sure not to tighten them to much.Once in place take a hair dryer and warm any places that look wrinkled or need straightening. Finally tighten all screws including the eight corner screws now re-install freezer door and your finish.

How to install an altenator in a 1994 jeep

Before doing that job, disconnect the postiive cable from the battery and make sure you know how to re-arm the security system and the radio code if you have those features.(also make a belt diagram if the sticker with that info isn't on the car)
To remove the alternator, loosen the bolts on the power steering pump and turn the transverse bolt under the pump to allow the belt to loosen. Once the belt is off, remove the bolts that hold the alternator in place, then remove the wiring. If the wiring has separate wires, not a rubber holder, be sure to write down where each goes so you can put them back on.
The alternator is reasonably easy to reach but sometimes requires a bit of twisting and turning to get it out and in,
If you loosen the front bracket a little it makes re-install a bit easier.
Reverse procedure to install.

The quick clamp chuck on my bosch 600 has seized up and I can't remove the drill bit. Any suggestions please

Hit a metal part of the clamp chuck to just create a "shock" using a hard rubber-hammer (or a metal hammer if the rubber one fails) one or two times. Chuck grip will loosen on the bit for you to remove it.

Installing new jacuzzi 1.6 gallon maxima toilet. despite following the instructions, the water is leaking from between where the tank connects to the bowl. Please help.

Yes, it seems the folks who wrote the instructions have never actually done any plumbing.

first place a rubber washer on the bolt, then put it through the hole in the tank. Then place another rubber washer on the bolt, followed by a metal washer and a nut. Tighten the nut, not the bolt.
Using a screwdriver hold the bolt in place, and tighten the nut until snug and the rubber washers are compressed slightly.

Follow this step with all the "tank to bowl" bolts.

Now the bolts are tight to the tank and will not leak water.

Then place the large rubber gasket over the flush valve hole on the bottom of the tank. and set the tank on the bowl with the bolts through the bowls holes.

Place a metal washer on the bolt, and then a nut.

Tighten each nut equally until the tank has no wobble.

How do I replace the drum gasket at the rear of Model 97273100.

Replacing gasket is fairly simple - need 2 people. UNPLUG FIRST - 1. Remove the plastic cover on top of machine that is mounted to back of control panel. 2. remove dispenser - push down on tab at back and it will slide all the way out. 3. Remove lower front cover by removing 3 screws holding it on bottom. 4. Remove 3 screws holding top panel on back of machine and slide cover back approximately 1 inch and lift off. 5. Remove the 3 screws that hold the control panel on - note these are different type of screw so keep track of which screw goes where - one of the screws is next to dispenser opening. Once this is done you can reach in to machine and disengage locking tab on right side under "washer temp" - have someone hold this part aside if you do not want to disconnect the cables. 6. Remove spring loaded wire securing door seal to front cover. 7. Remove the the 4 screws holding the front cover on. This item is a bit heavy so be careful. Disconnect the three door latch wire harness and place this aside. 8. On the right side of the gasket you will find the clamp screw that holds the seal to the drum - loosen this screw almost all the way and remove this wire clamp. carefully remove the two tube connections and remove the gasket completely. Take note how these were installed before removing. Now you can carefully clean the gasket seats on the drown and door and replace the gasket and reverse the steps to put the machine together. While you have the covers off it would make sense to remove and clean the pump strainer mounted on the lower cross support - this can be messy with lots of water coming out so go slowly and have plenty of towels and a shallow pan to catch the water with. HOPE this helps.

Rubber gasket

Hi again,

Rubber gasket due to their function would be tight fitting, you may need to force it out. Often it would have a lip or locking protrusion to keep it in places. The hard part is being able to remove a portion of it off the framework and the rest will follow.
