My garage fiberglass door was powerwashed by a guy painting the garage and now it has fiberglass fluffies all over it. How can I get rid of them and seal it? I am not handy.

Re power-washed garage door (Katie):
It sounds like the power-washing pressure, temperature and chemicals loosened the bond between epoxy and glass fibers.
Buy a large container of fiber-glass resin, with activator / hardener.
Brush this on, mixing small amounts as you progress (sets quickly). When completely cured, lightly sandpaper and re-coat if necessary to remove furriness.
Paint with undercoat and weatherproof surface enamel paint.
Acetone solvent can clean (messy, sticky, smelly) resin.
Edit: Wear protective clothing - those fibers itch!! :)

The casing around the jet on the tub side is cracked and is causing water to leak on the outside of the tub. This has happened to three of the 10 jets. What can I do to fix this?

Cheap plastic fatigues with heat . Silicone will work but will not keep the crack from continuing. The fix depends upon what type of plastic you have . It is likely a polyester like fiberglass in which case you can use regular fiberglass to fixit . Rough up the outside with 80 grit , brush in fiberglass resin ( don't forget to mix in hardener) lay in glass material , repeat until built up . Repair the front with a good "gelcoat " repair kit which allows you to mix match color.. sand with 220 , then 600, then 800, then 1500, then 3000 , polish with automotive whit polishing compound , wax

I've got a crack in the inside tub. The fiberglass part. How do I remove the one side to repair this. And I take it 'J B' Weld will do the trick? LOL Thank you, Mary


Google this ""16022808.pdf""

That will you take you to the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual. The SM will take you thru front panel removal. the front panel and the washer top raised are the only access points for the FAV6800A and FAV9800A Maytag Neptune TL's.

JB weld should do it. I would rough up the crack area and place pice of fiber glass mat and resin.

How did this happen? Any sever wash tub swings in Spin Cycle?

I don't use this forum for deeper DIY support it's too difficult to find my older post for reference and no editing features.

Google this ""FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement"" I support a lot of owners like you and myself at that site. Fixya is OK if you can get help for this TL.

Good Luck dh1200s
If your machine is a FAV6800A or FAV9800A here is a pic with the front panel removed. I'm working on preventive maintenance for DC/UC unbalance errors associated with the Clutch Pulley a common failure with this TL..........Good Luck dh1200s

I hit a raccoon o the drivers side. The animals body broke the fiber glass section in front of the driver side front wheel. There is another component there. I think its part of the intake, I'm not...

you will have to take it to a body shop or dealer. depending on how bad the break is, they may fix or repair the fiberglass. the air duct is probably not a real important part, just deflects air. good luck

Removing gold toned grab bars and fixtures from old whirlpool tub

sometimes a plumber leaves an access panel to get at the drain and jets under the tub---it's usually small and may not be enough to get a body in---usually the grab bars are permanently glued or siliconed on a fiberglass/plastic tub....a cast iron, or other non-plastic type tub may have removable grab bars...look for access area, or you may just have to cut out a piece of the wall to look----or if you do find a small access panel, and can get a telescoping mirror to look back at the back of the grab bar underneath the tub, you will find your answer----or you could contact the original manufacturer of the tub, and they can tell you if the grab bars are removable....another solution is to coat/paint/sandblast the metal bars however you'd like them to be

Can you cap off the jets of a whirlpool tub if you no longer use the jets?

you can but it's not worth the trouble of doing it! lots of fiberglass and you need to have access to the whole tub on the sides
