I had the same issue when a friend tried to use mine - if you remove the top plate, you can then lengthen the hose as there is an extra bit of tubing. It should be enough to reach the bottom of the water container again. You can then attach the filter from the severed half.

Water wouldn't not stop used a half of loaf of bread.

This has to be the most interesting problem I have ever seen... Chainsaw, water that won't stop, and you used a half loaf of bread... I really can't imagine such a scenario... Let me try one... you cut a drain pipe with the chain saw and stuffed a half loaf of bread to block the cut pipe?

Engineered stone (Silestone) quartz double sink vanity. I need to cut it in half. Need help with what kind of saw, technique, etc.

You are going to cut a double bowl vanity top in half and use the 2 sinks? Do you have enough room on each side for the tops to be at least 24" with the bowl in the middle? You need a diamond saw, water cooled, a skilsaw will work with a diamond blade and somebody hold a hose on it while it is cutting, it would be better to find somebody, a granite top maker with a bridge saw to cut it for you, nice and straight. Then polish the cut edges that show. That stone you have is a pretty tough stuff, you can polish it easier than granite, and it cuts easier, but you still need the diamond, I wouldn't use a dry blade or a carborundum blade. Hope this helps.

My car is leaking coolant at a fast rate. I just replaced the top radiator hose yesterday which split open. I can't tell if its leaking from another hose either...

take it to a mechanic. It's either the radiator itself which is coroded, or it's another hose. It could also be the water pump. If it's any of these, you would be better off having it diagnosed, and then ordering the parts online yourself. YOu can cut the cost in half!

2 problems 1st is the washer continues to fill with water when i put in a new load second is it wont spin

If the water keeps filling without cutting off, you either have a faulty inlet solenoide or your pressure hose and or pressure switch needs checking.

To isolate the acutal problem, start the machine on a new cycle. Change the water level to minimum or low before you start. Let the machine fill up. Keep checking the water intake as it fill up. Once the water level goes over the half way mark in your tank, if the machine starts its wash action then your pressure hose and switch are o.k. as they have signalled to the timer that the water level selected, has been reached.

However if the machine keeps filling up even though the wash action has started, then you have a faulty inlet solenoide/valve. Turn off water at the tap and get the valve replaced.

GE PFSS6SMX french door fridge water dispenser not working

check the fiting where you tapped the water for the uit. If its a saddle valve what happens is the the gasket closes down and restricts the water flow.

Ge washers top load (coffeeboot)

Hi Steven. I'm sure other service providers have come up with their own methods of dealing with the same problem, many of which may work as well as mine, but I think that cutting off the last inch and a half of the hose at the tub side is the fastest "fix", followed by regular use of liquid bleach (a concentrated sulution every couple of months) to prevent the condition from re-occuring.

How do i flush a radiator

go to auto parts store and get a flush kit,

cut and insert the "T" from the flush kit on the heater hose outlet or inlet.
make sure you are cutting into the heater hose coming out of the firewall heater area and not a large vacuum line.
if your not sure ask a mechanic.

connect the kits anti syphon to water hose and connect to the T you have installed ,
open the radiator , and flush very slow if engine is hot , or wait till engine is cool as a very cold flush can damage the engine.
