The lid to my whirlpool cabrio top loading washing machine will not open completely???


Hello. How old is your washer? Is there rust around the bleach dispenser near the left side hinge? What probably has happened is the hinge assembly underneath the top cover has rusted from the contact with chlorine and or fumes. These washers are notorious for rusting at the hinges, especially near the bleach dispenser. The parts involved are:
left hinge arm--w10389421
right hinge arm--w10389240
left hinge spring assembly--w10358931
right hinge spring assembly--w10358932
top cover--w10391067--if this needs to be replaced, call for service--it's a solid hour to 90 minute job for an experienced tech! You have to transfer ALL THE PARTS to the new cover and it's INVOLVED--trust me! If there is rust around the bleach dispenser and underneath the top cover, you might check your serial number with Whirlpool to see if you can get a new top cover for free covered by a service bulletin dealing with rusting. To raise the top cover, remove the top screws from the hinges on the rear of the washer holding down the top cover. Then, remove the screw and metal plate protecting the wire harness and pressure hose and set it aside. Next, from the front, slide the top cover forward 1/2 inch and lift up. Have a friend assist you in holding up the top cover. You can now access the hinges mounted underneath, check for rust, and also see how the suspension rods are mounted(they are very easy to remove since there is a slot in each rod holder located at each corner at the side of the tub near the bottom. You would pull up on the tub, release the top of the rods first, then reach down and unsnap the plastic clips(2) in the center of each holder. Use a headlamp or flashlight to see. The rod will drop down and can be removed through the slot. Reverse the procedure to install.
Also, in case your suspension rods get worn out(the tub has a hobby horse "bouncy" movement), the part number for the set of 4 is w10368625. The proper way to check the rods is to place your hands on the right and left side of the tub ring(the plastic cover over the basket) and shove smartly down and release--the tub should grip going down and pull coming up--no springy movement--just like shock absorbers on a car. It should come up and settle. If it has any bounce at all, the rods are worn--symptoms will be increased out of balance errors or the washer might start banging during spin. I hope this helps you. If you are hesitant about performing any of the repairs above, please call for service!

Why is my frigidaire washing machine model # ltf2140fs2 door is hard to shut and the hinges are rusted


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the door on your Frigidaire washer, model# LTF2140FS2, is hard to shut and the hinges are rusted. There could be a possibility that there is a leak that is rusting the hinges. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why the door won't shut and why the hinges are rusted. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

The top door is rusted out where the hinge fits. I want to patch it up to use in my shop. I tryed mounting some flat type door hinges but it don't work well


without knowing the refrigerator its a tough one, but refrigerator hinges are designed to allow the magnetic door seal to seal properly, flat door hinges typically not a good choice for this application
  • Either pop rivet some new metal plate to replace the rusted area and use existing hinge
  • try get replacement door from used refrigerator or refrigerator recycle place.
  • buy new/used fridge from kijiji :)

The driver side door has started to hang down want to make it work properly and get the door to work properly


New door hinges are a dealer item, get another complete set of hinges for that door from a dealer and have them installed and the door aligned at an autobody shop. Don't let the dealer put them in for you. If the door is rusted away where the hinges attach, get another door from a junkyard or off craiglist. If the car itself is rusted away where the hinges attach, have the door welded shut and enter the car per dukes of hazzard or use the passenger side door.

I own 1991 corsica lt. The hinge for the gas cover has rusted off. Searched the internet and was unsuccessful, can you help?


Call local junkyards, or auto recycling centers as they are now called, and find one that has a car like yours. It is nearly 20 now so you may not be successful. Craigslist is also handy for this, and you may find some on ebay. When you find a similar car, and this part is not in the same rusted condition on that car, you will have to pay them something to remove it and sell it to you. Often the body itself has rusted away where the hinge attaches so a patch from the rear has to be welded or riveted in.You always have to weigh the cost of repair against the value of the car. While unsightly, a missing gas door lid "don't affect the runnin' of it none".

I have two bathrooms directly under each other. The hinges on both cabinets (under the sink) are rusted and the pipes going from the wall to under the sink are also rusted. There are NO LEAKS ANYWHERE in...


You can't stop condensation or humidity in the house, especially in the bathrooms. A few choices: replace the hinges, or oil the hinges with WD-40. Install a vent fan (even though you have a window) and replace the pipes with PVC pipes. Metal drain pipes will always rust, because they drain water. Replace all under sink drain pipes with PVC

Rust behind both front door (top only) hinges


If there is rust, the bolts are loose and the hinge is working (moving) causing bare metal exposure to rusting. Tighten the bolts, iit will be ok.

You just need to use a small drift pin punch to push the door pins out. Use a small drift pin punch and a small hammer to drive the pin up and out from the bottom. It is just stuck in the hole.
