  • My Whirlpool dryer’s drum won’t turn, the machine just hums when I press the power button. What is wrong with my dryer?

    At first, turning the drum manually about 4-5 times and then turning the machine on did the trick but once the cycle ended, the machine wouldn’t turn the drum anymore when pressing the power button again. I took apart the dryer and everything looks intact, and the problem persists after putting it back together... show more

  • Using self leveling concrete?

    I'm wanting to level the concrete in my basement bathroom, and will be using self leveling concrete for my first time. I've watched some youtube videos on applying it and everyone is using a trowel to spread it after pouring it. So my confusion is this..If self leveling concrete is really self leveling, then why do you have to use a trowel to spread it? If you need to trowel the self leveling concrete, then in reality it is not actually self leveling, and it would also be possible to not spread it correctly and therefore have thick and thin spots or an uneven surface when finished. I wanted to use self leveling concrete to level my floor because I thought it would be an easy way to level the floor as I am not a professional concrete guy, but I'm worried about it not leveling itself now after watching people having to trowel it. I am a plumber, and have broken up several floors in my day to make repairs and then patched the holes back up with concrete again. But when it comes to leveling out an entire bathroom floor, I'm out of my element. Any advice about using the leveler? My room is about 10ft x 5ft than I need to level. the 5ft with of the room is sloping towards an old floor drain that that use to be in the bathroom that has now been abandoned. the side of the bathroom that had the floor drain is probably an 1 full inch lower that the other end of the room. This is the gap I need to fill and level. Thanks..

  • Need help with wireing meter to panel.?

    Best answer: pls tell us where the meter is and where the panel is. in many homes, they are right next to each other and thus the normal wire size chart for amperage to be carried is applied. [google will find it]. if they are separated by some distance [meter on pole and panel on the house?], you need the chart that adds distance of run [which you measure between pole and house and then add 15 feet].

    underground rated cable must be used underground. for safety [esp at this amperage] you run it inside conduit, making the conduit joints water tight. you similarly have to make the conduit to meter and conduit to breaker box connections water tight.

    the salesteam at your local hardware/home improvement store will help you select proper, safe materials.

    It is a good idea to stop by your local government building permits office and ask lots of questions about what local code requires. example: some local codes do not permit use of any plastic [pvc] conduit for this unless it is buried at least three feet underground.

    Note that the local building inspector will want to examine your work before an occupancy permit is issued. you need to ask when this must be done in the process ... if you go too far and the inspector can't inspect, you get to do it over at own expense

  • As a home owner, does it make sense to get an asbestos company to test your house?

    What if they find asbestos and also find it in the air and you also rent rooms in that house? Can people sue you? How should you go about doing that if you want to check your house for asbestos if your rent rooms?
