I am trying to put on the front wheel but it is not fitting, there is a washer tightened on each side towards the wheel. Am I supposed to take those off before trying to put the wheel on? Otherwise, what do I do to get the front wheel to fit?

If you're talking about the washers which can screw in and out you don't take them off. They hold the ball-bearings, that the axle turns on, in place. If you have moved them you should adjust them so that when you hold the wheel by the axle at each side the weight of the valve, for pumping the wheel, moves to the bottom i.e. next the ground. Any tighter is too tight any looser is too loose. You need to pull he forks of the bike frame slightly apart to get the wheel to fit between them.

If you're talking about washers that can pull off rather than screw off they can be taken off and put on the axle outside the forks next the nuts which hold the wheel on.

Clutch knob on kenmore 15814001 sewing machine will not tighten

Have you removed the inner wheel? If so you probably have put clutch spring in backwards. The washer like piece has to bent fingers that appear to fit in the center of the shaft. These should be facing out toward the tightening nut. Turn washer around and voila good to go.

Kx450f front sprocket coming off

There is a bendable tang washer that goes under the nut. From factory te nuts are extremely tight to get off. You need to put the lock washer underneath the nut, tighten it as tight as you can with a breaker bar then bend the washer in a couple of places over the flat sides of the nut to lock it for good.

Rear axle replace

screw 1 of the cone pieces(that fit bearings)tapered section towards centre of axle(about 3/4 inch), then slip 1 bearing case on axle from other end with bearing side facing centre. Then insert axle into hub and put bearing on other end(bearings facing middle)then cone.
**NOTE** Put small amount of bearing grease inside hub for bearings. Doesn't have to be bicycle grease- I use auto grease as you get 10times as much for same price.
Then adjust cones by hand untill there isn't any slack and axle centered.Then screw on thin nut(both ends), it acts as lock nut for cones.To tighten correctly you need a skinny spanner to hold cone while you tighten the skinny nut. Spanners from bike shop only cost about $2. Can adjust without a narrow head spanner by leaving a bit of slack when doing up cones and hopefully lock effect between cone/nut grabs before cones are over tight(a bit of messing around without a narrow spanner).
There shouldn't be any slack between axle/cones and wheel, wheel should spin freely.
Put wheel on bike then a washer(if you have any)outside frame, then larger wheel nuts.
Hopefully all your pieces have been used. HAPPY RIDING

We just bought a womens lakeshore 26" and the assembly instructions are terrible. How do you affix the front wheel?

The front wheel axle fits into the fork, there is a U shaped notch in each fork leg at the end of the fork. There are two washers with bent tangs on them that fit into holes just above where the axle fits into the fork. Slide the washers onto the axle, one on each side. the tangs on the washers should fit into the small holes above each U shaped notch that the axle is in. Next screw on the nuts supplied for the fork. The tire should be centered between the fork legs before you tighten the nuts to secure the front wheel to the fork.

Sheared front lug

First remove wheel from car. Next take large hammer and drive whats left of lug out, you may need to use a punch if sheared off below hub hight. Now insert new lug stud in from back side of hub and use a open style lug nut (like those you see on old cars without nice wheels) and put on upside down, flat side towards hub. tighten up by hand then use socket to tighten down untill stud is pulled in all the way. In some cases you may need to use a few washes under nut to give enough room for shank on stud.

I changed the blade on my Toro Edger attachment but the left handed thread on the nut doesn't get tight. Is it supposed to or is it some special design that doesn't allow it to be overtightened? Does the...

the hump side of the washer goes toward the nut so when you tighten the blade it pushes the washer against the blade and allows the blade to stay tight as the washer flattens some
if it still doesnt tighten and you dont need much to get it to tighten then put another regular washer between that washer and nut or you may need a new beveled washer

hopefully this will help you some

You muppets! The nuts are nylocks, Simply slacken them 1/2 turn or so until the wheels spin freely. They will not come off and do not need to be tightened against the wheel, Make sure you have inserted a washer either side of the wheel. If you havn't and need to take the nylock nut off for any reason it should be replaced. B&Q will have them in an emergency othwise go to a proper hardware shop.

Magnet came out and now washer won't run

on the under side of the dispencer, remove it, flip it over, fit it in with some glue, as far toward the inner part as possible, put it back, try the washer, if it still doesnt fill, try pulling it out a little and see if that works, if it does this is the amount you need to move the magnet back.
