How To Replace Kenmore Washer Dog Agits

Kenmore Washer Dog AgitsRecently we had some spinning problems with our Kenmore Washer, and after talking to some people it sounded like it’s a very common problem. For the last month or so our Kenmore Washer started making loud noises, especially when we had large loads for it to wash. It sounded like loud abnormal clicking or thread stripping. Also, if we would looked inside our washer, we were able to see that while it is suppose to be rotating our clothes from top to bottom, it was Not doing that. Instead, it looked like the big plastic center rotating piece was not catching unto something and so it sounded like there is something inside it stripping the threads or some kind of little teeth.
Well, guess what after we figured it all out, there really is indeed little plastic teeth that worn out for the last seven years. Yes, our Kenmore washer is still good overall after all these seven and a half years. So, I definitely recommend buying yourself a Kenmore Washer instead of any other brands, but of course it is up to you, maybe you know something that I don’t. Anyway, if you have similar problems, then your washer most likely needs “Dog
Agits” replaced. Continue reading

How To Change Oil in Car

Prepare for How To Change Oil in CarToday I would like to explain to all of you who are looking for this helpful advice on How to Change oil in car. I will also tell you how to replace oil filter in your car. The pictures that you will be seeing here are from my 1997 Honda Accord. So, to be more specific this “do it yourself” article is going to be on how to change Honda Accord oil and filter. These instructions are for you and you are the one responsible for whatever happens, we take no responsibility of your mistakes or misunderstanding, make sure to use common sense, think before doing anything at all, but the best step of all is to pray and ask God for common sense and for help in any of your job or work. I like changing oil by myself because then I feel better about myself and I don’t worry about the engine, because sometime some professional shops forget to put the oil back into people’s cars, I personally know of people to who it happened. I also don’t trust someone else fixing my car, so if I am able to do it, then I’d rather do it myself. Also, I believe that it is good and healthy for you to try doing some stuff by yourself, (with enough knowledge of course). Well, first of all make sure that the car or the engine in the car is not hot, because usually if the engine was just used then it is very hot and the oil is even hotter. Also, make sure that you have enough of oil ready to be put back into the engine and a new oil Filter. Some cars need more oil and some cars need less, but for my 1997 Honda Accord SE with four cylinders, I’m getting ready five quarts of fully synthetic oil 5w-30 from NAPA auto store and one simple and new oil filter. I usually use total of four and a half of quarts of oil to put back into the engine, that is why I get five quarts ready just in case.

Engine Oil Cap and Oil DipstickSo, let the engine cool down if you need to, and to make it cool down faster I usually open the hood, and then unscrew top motor oil cap which is usually visible on top of the engine. Take out the oil dipstick that checks the level of the motor oil. This dipstick is usually either yellow or orange in most of the cars. I take that oil cap off and take out the dipstick out so there will be better air circulation for when you’ll be draining out the dirty oil.

.

.

.

Oil Pan and drain bolt and containerNext, lets get a wide-mouth open container for the old and dirty motor oil. Then, find the drain plug or the drain bolt at the bottom of the oil pan which is at the bottom of the engine. On my car it is from the rear side of the oil pan. Then, get a ratchet or a wrench that says 17mm on it, or if you have a different size bolt then use whatever size you need to use. After you have loosened the drain bolt, then put that container under that drain plug and if you have to put some kind of covering on the ground so the oil doesn’t spill on your concrete or dirt. When your ready, unscrew the drain bolt the rest of the way and make sure that your container is catching all of the oil. Please try to avoid oil spills, because it is bad for our Earth.

.

.

Old Oil Filter LocationAfter the oil is done, clean your drain bolt and put it back in, and then tighten it. Then, locate the old oil filter and unscrew it using your hands or the special tool that you can buy for unscrewing the oil filters. Please try to catch all of the oil while it will be pouring down at the time of unscrewing the oil filter. My oil filter is on the back of the engine. I really hate that inventors didn’t come up with a better place for the oil filter, because on most of the cars the oil filters are located in the way that will make the old oil spill no matter how you unscrew it.

.

.

.

Oil Filter SpotNow clean as much as you can the whole area around where the filter was.

.

.

.

.

.

New oil filter ready to be put onThen take the new oil filter and open one of the new oil quarts. Then pour a little bit of oil on top of the oil filter thread. Then using your finger, smear or oil the rubber seal on top of that new oil filter.

.

.

.

.

.

New Oil Filter in placeThen, screw the new oil filter back into the place where the old one was.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Drain Bolt Plug back in placeSo, right now you need to make sure that the new oil filter and the drain plug bolt are both nice and tight in their places.

.

.

.

.

.

Oil FunnelAnd now you are ready to put the oil back into the motor. You should get some kind of a funnel to support your new oil pouring, and to avoid any oil spills. Pour in the four new and full quarts of oil. Then, when the car is level on the ground and with all the wheels standing evenly on the ground, check your oil level with the oil dipstick. On my oil dipstick I fill the oil until the second little whole from the edge is just barely closed up with oil. Try not to overfill your engine with the motor oil, because it could make your gaskets on your engine leak. When you are done, remember to put the oil dipstick back in and screw back in the top engine oil cap. Then you can wipe off and clean off any oil spills and leaks that you might have and dispose of the old oil according to your local legal laws and regulations. So, now you know how to change Honda oil.

How To Fix Razor Electric Scooter

razor all viewToday I would like to share my little Do-It-YourSelf project that I had to do on a broken electric razor scooter that I got from my friends. The problem was that the batteries did charge, the motor worked, the on/off button light came on, but when you push the gas switch it wouldn’t move. Here is a couple of the solutions. Go and spend $30.00 online to buy the part and then wait for it to come and then replace it and then it may brake again. Or follow my instructions on how to make the scooter work without that annoying part. If you are going to follow my instructions and something still doesn’t work, or you mess something up, or you hurt yourself, or whatever happens that you didn’t expect, then it is your problem and your fault and I am not responsible for anything that may go wrong. If you don’t have common sense, then please leave this tutorial alone and please leave my website alone too, I don’t want you to hurt yourself looking at my website. Ok, lets get started. First of all, the only thing that part does is turns off the gas switch when you press on brakes, sounds useless to me. Continue reading

How To Replace Dryer Belt

If your question is: How To Replace Kenmore Dryer Drum Belt? then you came to the right place. Your mental and brain health will be improving little by little if you are going to be trying to do some of the basic things yourself instead of calling some professional company and paying them extremely lots of money that we as regular working people don’t usually have. These How-To instructions are going to be for an Electric Kenmore Dryer with model Number 110.62622101, but usually many dryers are very similar to each other. This Dryer Drive Belt or Dryer Drum Belt has the original part number 80660665, or you can use the new part number for this belt 341241. Do not buy the used belt, make sure it is new. It is much easier and faster and cheaper to get it locally from some local business that sells appliance parts and belts, but if you have lots of time to spare and extra money to throw away then go ahead and call Sears Parts Department 1-800-252-1698. If you live in Spokane city and Washington state then we recommend for you to use the local appliance store that we used called Reliable Parts and it is located at E. 204 Augusta St. Spokane, WA 99207 it is close by Division and Mission intersection. If you will be using these instructions then it will be at your own risk, please be careful and use common sense. So, lets begin replacing the dryer belt:

– Turn off and disconnect the electrical power from the dryer.
- Disconnect the large, long, soft, and aluminum Exhaust pipe from the back of the machine.

.

.

.

.

- Pull out the Lint Screen.

.

.

.

.

- Unscrew the two little screws that you see after you pulled out the lint screen.
– Open up the top by just pulling it up from the front side, but if it is stuck then use a flat screw driver to help it pop up.
– Lay the Dryer on its back with the top lid open.

.

.

.

- Unscrew the top two little screws from behind of the front cover, after you have opened the top lid.

.

.

.

.

.

- Disconnect or just unscrew the whole Door Switch Assembly from the front cover, so it will not be attached to the front cover.
– Slide up the front cover to remove it and put it aside.
– Find and throw away the old belt.

.

.

.

- Find and put in place the idler assembly. On some dryers it has a wheel on it but on this dryer it did not have a wheel on it. Make sure that you set it in place the way it was.

.

.

.

.

- Put on the new belt. Here is how: Find the old marks from the old belt, it should be somewhere in the middle of the drum. Put the belt around the drum first with the V groves facing and touching the drum, then pull the belt through the loop hole of the idler assembly, and finally stretch the idler assembly by pulling the belt all the way toward and around the pulley on the motor. Now here is how the belt should be set, it goes around the drum with groves on the inside, then it goes through the idler loop hole and touching that idlers round spot with its back, then the belt goes around the motor pulley that has the matching groves.
– Rotate the drum manually and make sure that the belt and the motor and the drum all rotate together. Also, make sure the belt is in the right place on the drum, move it in place if you need to.
– Put the front cover back on. Make sure that you align it evenly to get the bottom part of the front cover into the clips first, and make sure the drum is in the right place with the front cover.
– Put the screws of the front cover back in place.
– Connect or reAttach the door switch.
– Raise the dryer on its bottom.
– Close the Top lid all the way.
– Put the screws of the lint screen back in place.
– Slide in the Lint screen back in place.
– Put the large, long, soft, and aluminum Exhaust pipe back in place on the back of the dryer.
– Put your dryer back where it belongs.
– Connect the electrical power to the machine.
– Turn on the machine for a minute or two to test and to blow out any dust that got in.
– That is it, good job, now you have proven to yourself that you can do some basic stuff around your home by yourself, and you saved who knows how much money, and you improved your knowledge, skills, mental health and brain health too.
