The bottom of my gasket was torn open all along the bottom. I ordered the gasket but I wanted to see if I could repair it so we could catch up on the wash. I bought some rubber contact cement that cost me under $4.00. I Glued the gasket rubber together by overlapping the the seem a little. Still had a hole in one spot. I had a sheet of rubber around my shop that was about 1/16 of an inch thick and cut it about three inches wide.. I used a little sandpaper to rough it up a little. I cut it in two.
You have to apply contact cement to the gasket and the rubber you are applying it to. ( I dry fit it first to make sure it would fit). Just to make sure it would hold I also glued rubber to the outside bottom of the gasket to reinforce the glued seam. . You need to take off the front panel to do this and there are directions to do this if you search for it. I was able to run the washer in about an hour after the repair.
If your washer is in the basement and are not afraid of getting the floor wet give it a try. I have run the machine with heavy loads for two days and no leaks. I feel confident that the repair will last for a long time. A cheap fast fix. It took me about forty five minutes. Make sure you unplug the machine to do this. Good luck.

After you remove the front panel you have to remove the front bulkhead. there is a cable that goes around the boot whee it attaches to the outer tub. be very careful removing the spring that holds it on, one slip and the spring will be implanted in your skull. i recommend having a pro change it, i do it for a living and have a great deal of trouble putting the spring back on.

I need to take apart my Brother SE 400 so I can replace the spool pin.


This is general information for all sewing machines. There are often hidden screws inside and clips that can not be seen. You can gently pry the machine apart and see where it is hanging up. Often the screws are reached from the side with a long Phillips screwdriver. You will need a flashlight to see them. Some models have access to the cover screws after removing a knob or the bottom plate.

Heater core cutlass REMOVAL


Depends on what year your car is. It is not an easy job. Some cars require the removal of the fender well on the passenger side to access the hidden screws in the heater case. You'll need a new gasket set from the dealer too. there are a lot of screws that hold the two halves of the case to the firewall . You'll need to to disconnect the heater hoses which may cause them to break if they aren't supple any more. It's a job that requires a lot of tools and a lot of time to do.

How and what do I have to remove to be able to replace a hidden switch lid on a Kenmore 600 washer?


1st, you'll have to remove the top section that has the controls by removing the screws from the back that attach it to the main body of your machine. Then, you should find the screws or other devices that keep your lid attached to the machine, and be able to remove it, gaining access to that "hidden switch".

How to change the gasket on the oil filter adapter


Easy fix I just did. (replacing the oil filter adapter gasket which is a common leak). Remove the air cleaner tube and housing. Release the tension on the belt. Remove the two front bolts on the air compressor. They are nuts but the stud will come out too which is fine. Under the car loosen the third air compressor bolt. This will give you enough room to loosen the hidden bolt on the oil filter adapter. It only needs to be loosened as the adapter is slotted there. Remove the other two bolts on the oil filter adapter and remove. Replace the gasket and install.

Need freezer door internal access


IF it is possible for you to perform this refrigerator repair, it will depend on one thing, whether or not you have screws located underneath your door gasket. Open your freezer door, and grab the inner side of the gasket, away from the door edge, and peel the gasket back, towards the edge of the door. If you have several screws down the length of the door, you can remove the gasket and door liner, and the fiberglass insulation, but you wont be able to remove the foam insulation. If you only have a couple of screws or none at all, you have what they call a foamed in liner and gasket, and disassembly, and more importantly, reassembly, is extremely difficult, moreso for a DIYer.

What is the easiest way to get the front panel off of my LG front load washer to replace the large rubber drum gasket which ripped? Is it screwed on or pressure fit?


It can be changed out without removing the front panel. There are special tools designed to remove and re-install the spring clamps which hold the gasket on, but you can do it with long nose pliers or other implements. It is more difficult to do with the panel on, but it can be done. If you want to remove the front panel: Remove bottom screws from plastic parts on the back edge of the washer top. Stand in front of machine and use the palms of your hands to sparply push back the washer's top about 2 inches, then lift it off. Remove screws from support frame to control panel. Remove dispenser drawer by opening it and pushing the tab on the top back side down while pulling the dispenser the remaining way out. Remove screws from behind dispenser drawer. Release tabs along the top edge of the control panel (watch out for sharp edges) and swing the control panel up on top of the washer drum. Remove spring clamp from front of rubber door gasket. Open access door panel on lower left of front panel. Use small hose to drain out remaining water. Remove phillips head screw in recess, then use plastic putty knife to push inward on the left or right edge of rectangular housing around the recess to remove recess. Remove screws at bottom from bottom of front panel into frame (located behind plastic recess) Remove screws along top edge of front panel. Tilt front panel forward and unplug door switch. Set front panel to the side.

Afraid to rip shower screen to clean group basket


If the screen is stuck to the diffuser the only way to get it out is to pry with screw driver, it might be easier, to do if you remove the old gasket, doing so will sometimes release the diffuser and screen. If that does not work then use a small flat screw driver insert it into the hole the screw came from until it catches the inner edge of the screen, then lift on screwdriver, this lever action will pry out the screen without damaging it. If the screen is covered with coffee which it probably will be, use a pair of needle nose pliers and hold the screen over an open flame, (stove) the coffee will burn before the metal.

The choke cover (or door gasket on your brand) will come out similar to the diagram shown below.

Then the hidden screws should be visible.
