When a Kenmore washer won’t fill, keeps filling, or fills but not enough, you will need to check the water inlet valves, lid switches, air dome tubes, and water level switches. These are some of the most common components that can cause water-related problems in a Kenmore washer.

The overall steps are to first clean the surface of the concrete and get it level. Then you install the smooth edge, also called tack strip. After that you lay the underpad. And finally you spread out the carpet, secure it to the tack strip, cut off any excess, and tuck the edges of the carpet in.
You can lay carpet over linoleum, but the linoleum needs to be flat, clean, and in good condition. When installing the carpet, you should use tack strips on the room’s perimeter and lay a layer of padding, securing it with staples. You can also glue the carpet down to make it less slippery.
You can put vinyl flooring in a garage. Rollo-out sheets, peel-and-stick tiles, and interlocking vinyl planks are waterproof, easy to clean, and undemanding. Moreover, vinyl is affordable and strong enough to withstand heavy footfall and regular vehicle movements.
If your GE fridge isn’t cooling, but the freezer works, the likely culprit is a broken door hinge. Other causes include frozen coils or a malfunctioning evaporator fan. In the majority of cases, you can fix the problem without a professional’s guidance.
You can lay laminate over vinyl flooring, sheets, and VLT. However, first ensure that the vinyl is intact, stuck to the subfloor, and asbestos-free. Also, check that the subfloor is concrete or hardwood and doesn’t have moisture issues. Always apply an underlayment under the laminate.
Ceramic tiles cannot be installed directly over particle board. The particle board is usually too thin and brittle, and will crack the tiles if it swells with moisture. However, tiles can be installed if a moisture barrier and cement backer board are installed over the particle board.
Hardwood can be installed over particle particleboard by using both flooring adhesive and screws to secure it in place. However, this is not recommended because particle board can swell with moisture or flake around screws, reducing the quality and lifespan of your finished hardwood floor.
As a general rule, you can lay tile over plywood. However, you need to ensure the plywood subfloor is 1 and ¼ inch (3 cm) thick. It’s also recommended to use a cement backer board on top of the plywood, but some tilers make a cement backer board by hand.
As a general rule, you can lay carpet over plywood. Plywood is very similar in strength and durability to hardwood, and for that reason makes a great subfloor for carpet. You can also install the carpet yourself, however, you need a few specialized tools.
