Question about Indesit Washing Machines

1 Answer

I've got an Indesit WIDL126S and it is leaking. The water escapes from behind a brass plate with wires on. The brass plate is held on by a 10mm nut. Do I need to buy a bearing and seal kit?

    The seal round the heater looks worn so I'll have to buy a new one. Do you know how much they are?

    I thought it was the bearings and seals as I was feeling pessimistic!

    Thanks, I tried to tighten it up but had no joy. Once I removed the heater I discovered water was pouring through where the screw goes, so it's well and truly knackered. I bought a new heater for £20 and it goes on this afternoon. I'll put some sealant on for good measure. Thanks for all your feedback. JM.

This sounds like the heater you are looking at. try tightening the 10mm nut a bit. if that doesn't work. loosen the nut, pull heater out and use some sealant. why do you think you need to replace bearings and seals?

    seal comes complete with heater. try tightening before you buy and try sealant.

I have a leak where the compression nut from the 1/4 " water line connects to the fridge. Do I change the compression nut or the part it is connected to?

Your going to want to replace the ferral,(the nylon or brass ring under the nut that is crimped on the line) cut the line behind it & you can get a replacment or kit at any hardware store.

My 2004 Toyota Sequoia rear door will not open - the handle is broken. How do I get into the door, whith it closed, to make the necessary repairs?

Dig out the broken bits of door handle, then on the right side insert a flat head screwdriver diagonally up and fish around for the release lever.
Push up on the screwdriver handle to manipulate the release lever down and your tailgate will open.
Remove the interior panels by unbolting the 10mm bolt behind the strap and pulling off the interior pieces held on by plastic pop fasteners.
Remove the 10mm bolts around the perimeter of the interior cover plate and let it hang by the harness.
Remove the license plate.
Remove the license plate trim panel (multiple push fasteners from behind and a few 10mm around the lock)
Replace the handle.

Where is the fuel filter in 2002 ford explorers

The fuel filter is on the passenger side under the door near the front wheel well. It is behind a curved shield and a flat plate covering the fuel filter that is marked "fuel filter replace".
There is an aluminum plate held on with 3 13mm bolts. Remove it. Behind it there is a black plastic shield, held on with 2 10mm nuts. Remove that and you will see the fuel filter, and the bracket that holds it on.

Indesit wil 103 heater element

no need to take drum out. heater is held by one 10mm nut in the middle of the heater. when tightened, this nut compresses the rubber seal and holds heater in place. loosen the nut. the heater will probably be too tight to remove by hand so carefully use a screwdriver to lever it out

this is not easy

disconnect water and elec

remove the top (2 screws at rear) then remove hoses. remove rear cabinet half - 2-3 screws at top, 1 screw each side at bottom behind plastic covers and 2 screws at bottom rear. back half of cabinet then slides off.

take wires off heater and remove heater - it is held by 1 10mm nut in centre.

you can then see into gap between tub and drum and locate foreign object and remove.

assembly is the reverse
