Open the cylinder that is inserted in the bottle, in other words, the pump mechanism. Often the rubber seal gets twisted which makes it difficult to pump, or no air is blown inside the container. Also add some ghrease to the rubber seal and the cylinder.
The driver will not return if the new oring on the piston is causing too much friction. The piston should move easily up and down the cylinder, however should not drop down the cylinder under its own weight. If too tight, use old piston oring/seal. If the piston is not too tight, then air must be leaking out between the driver blade and driver guide washer under the lower bumper. If the washer seems to be good (washer with slot cutout) but you suspect that air is leaking past, cut small circle of rubber (tire tube) and with sharp knife cut slot into rubber so that the driver fits snugly thru. Place the rubber washer on top of the metal washer for better seal and retest. Good luck
most upholsterers should be able to help here If not go to a rubber dealer that sells sponge rubber etc as most have a good selection of auty trim rubbers that you can fit yourself. The best glue is loctite 406 Be careful as it is a super glue
Sure hope you got that fixed. If not you can try to make the rubber more flexible with heat, either a towel/rag soaked in hot water and then applied to it for a few minutes or a hair dryer on low blowing on it for a few minutes (be careful you don't burn the rubber).
The sink basket/strainer that fits into the large hole of the sink should have either a bead of silicone sealant applied to the sealing lip of the assembly or a ring of plumbers putty. Silicone will work very well if the mating flanges are clean and dry.
With the baket in place, the rubber seal goes between the large nut and the sink. A bead of silicon on this is optional on the sink side of that rubber seal. and the nut tightened down snug , forcing some of the silicone out fro beneath the mating flange and rubber seal. Tight enough so the basket is not free to move. Be it plastic or brass/metal, that order is the same, only a plastic nut is not tightened as tightly as a metal nut would be.
On the bottom of the drain basket assembly there is a nut, to retain a plastic or brass tail piece. The plastic tail piece will have a polyetheylene "flanged washer" for a seal to the bottom of the sink basket. If it is a brass tailpiece, a rubber seal and metal nut is used with "pipe dope"/thread sealing compound used on the threads of the metal nut. With the plastic nut, you can apply a few wraps of teflon tape to the threads of the drain basket, but is not required in most cases as the poly flanged washer will form the seal. The plastic nuts should not be tightened any more than hand tight.
beneath that, the rest of the drain assembly attaches. If plastic- no more than hand tight. if metal, only about 1/4 turn past hand tight. Metal nuts and parts should use rubber gaskets/seals and the plastic parts should only use the poly tapered/lip seals.
Disconnect the machine from the power. Open top hatch by removing two screws in the back and sliding top lid back and up to remove.
Check down from the top of the machine and feel around the door seal. Make sure there are no holes or tears in the seal. Try and refit seal. there is a metal ring around the drum and also around the front panel where the door seal joins. Make sure the are tight and fit in properly.
This seems to be a common problem with front loaders, but there is an easy fix if you follow these simple steps:
1. The rubber seal fits over the lip around the door opening. Carefully
seat the rubber seal all the way around the door opening first. 2. Then,
place the wire hoop in the crease where the rubber seal fits over the
lip. Insert the hoop with the spring pointing at the bottom. Starting
at the top and work your way around the door opening to the 4 and 8
o'clock positions. 3. While holding the hoop in place, stretch the spring
apart enough to allow the rest of the hoop to snap into the crease at
the bottom of the door opening. You may need a second pair of hands to
help you with this.
