      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Washer questions

Recommended Posts

We have a Whirlpool top load high capacity washer and every once in a great while we'll notice a puddle on the floor.

I can't be certain but we may have noticed a possibility that it is only leaking when my wife uses the delicate setting. Doesn't make any sense to me. What would it matter which cycle we used?

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Bob

Whereabouts in relation to the machine is it leaking (front corner, center, etc.) How old is machine? Does it have a bleach dispenser in the front, right corner when lifting the lid?

Best way to tell is pull the front cover off after it leaks and look for water. An occasional, leak my guess is the seal for the basket and top trim. In which case you'd pop the lid off. The ring will be a snap fit as well. The gaskets are cheap and its and easy fix.

I experienced the same issue with my Kenmore washer.

I wouldn't always have a leak, and it was troubling to locate.

I eventually found that the plastic water dispenser/pipe that fills the washer tub was the culprit. It appeared that if the tub was uneven after a wash cycle, and during a re-fill, the water exiting the dispenser would hit the outer rim of the tub and water would drip along the backside of the tub and leak onto the floor.

I re-positioned the dispenser and haven't had an issue since. Hope your's is as simple as that?

I haven't been able to dig into it enough to figure out where the leak is coming from. I believe my wife finds the water on the floor near the front right corner as you face the washer. Coincidentally, this is same corner where the bleach dispensor is located. I know she doesn't use the dispensor though.

I just couldn't figure out why it only leaks when she uses the delicate cycle. At least that's what she's claiming.

The bleach dispenser is probably what is leaking. Even though you're not using it, it still may pump a little water through it, possibly only on delicate cycle. It just has little holes on the part on splash guard under the cabinet. The holes get plugged and cause it to leak. If you can move the tub far enough to the side to get at them or you may have to take the plastic cup out that sits on the cabinet. I usually take a screwdriver and punch the holes out bigger so the can't plug again. Alot of times it's just dust that plugs them up, not a very good design. Hope this helps and fixes it for you. Good Luck

Check how quick the tub drains and if the spout from the washer is under water when the entire loads water is put out (on high water level) in the tub or check for your lint screen being plugged on the drain spout into the tub.

I had a situation where the tubs drain was clogged and draining very slow, plus my drain spout had gotten tilted down further in the tub. Basically there was still dirty water (I think hydro locking) in the washer when the next water fill started and would push some water up and over, which would spill on the floor under the washer. I found my plastic drain tube spout was draining into water that was slow to drain in the wash tub instead of above the water lever.

Good luck!

It's because none of your filthy mud covered clothing is in their with the 'delicates'. Either the Ms. has to grub around some in the dirt or toss a couple of your socks in there to thicken things up and stop the leaking.

    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
    • Down this way I have been getting most my fish around weed edges and weed clumps. Trigs for good edges and chatterbaits worked on bottom or over the weeds, kinda how I would fish a jig. Water around here is pretty murky right now. Docks have been good on those lakes with dirty water and not so many weeds.
    •   You'd poke yer eye out. 
    • Hi, from the Northwest Angle! Water temps are staying consistently in the low 70’s.

      Stateside, walleye fishing has been good from Lunatic to Garden Islands. The edges of islands and reefs in 22-29’ will provide walleye, perch and occasional large pike. Most productive methods have been minnows on gold spinners and deep diving crank baits in UV tiger, clown and blue/chrome.

      Canadian walleyes can be had jigging minnows with gold, pink, and chartreuse on edges of reefs.  Monkey Rocks is holding many schools of fish currently, as well as, reefs south of Deepwater Bay. Bottom bouncing outside these reefs will produce fish as well. Muskie fishing has slowed a little, however nice fish in upper 40’s can be caught in “windows” of time, usually coinciding with Majors and Minors.

      We hope to see you for some fantastic fall fishing & hunting!
    • He isn't going to set the world on fire, but only been a minus guy 3 times in his entire career. While Scandella is a -10 for his career. Quincey is more physical so I think that will be good. There is probably more upside with Scandella, no, definitely there could be, but he was really terrible last year. Perhaps Quincey gets paired with Dumba. That would be good for Dumba because when he was paired with Leopold he had his best stats following picking him up.
    • cloudy and rainy here today is gonna take all the fun out it. I do know the fish didn't cooperate for a sundown bite last night.
    • After two years cables go too.  Its all about maintenance.  If you case them and keep them lubed up there are plenty of people that have had electric jacks for may years.  Good reason its becoming almost a standard upgrade on many RV's out there.  Will report back, we are pulling the house back from the lake in a couple  weeks so should get a start on it inside of the month.
    • Any type of charging/starting systems should ALWAYS be fused. Basic wiring 101. If not, and you fry the he** out of something, no complaints are allowed.
    • The guy that built my frame talked me out of them. He said the first yr or two there great. Then problems start, he said I would be coming back to him and putting a winch system back on. He said he has taken the electric off lots of frames and put them back to winch system.   With the two speed winch and a cordless drill it is so easy.
