    Removal of toilet flush valve

    I think I'm going to have to remove the cistern. Seen a few photos elsewhere, and there is a threaded section at the bottom of the valve tube. This suggests there will be a locknut under the cistern which holds it in place. Thanks for your help anyway. That's my job for tomorrow sorted out!

    Removal of toilet flush valve

    I have an Impulse 'Cascade' toilet cistern (oval push button). There is water leaking slowly into the toilet pan and a small 10 second flush happens every 30 minutes or so as the level drops. I suspect the washer at the base of the flush valve unit needs renewal. Is this flush valve removable...

    BOSCH MAXX Tapping noise when spinning

    The machine is in the same spot it has occupied for ten years, and it's level. Had top off already - no wear at spring fixing points. Pressed drum down through front loading opening the drum goes up and down without problem. The noise definitely comes from the bottom where the shockers are. The...

    BOSCH MAXX Tapping noise when spinning

    Thanks fo your input. Don't think the bra wire theory can be right. The drum spins without any noise when washing or when I turn it by hand when it's empty. I can produce the noise, as I said, by gently rocking the whole unit inside when I remove the machine's top panel. In fact, if I remove...

    BOSCH MAXX Tapping noise when spinning

    Had this machine trouble free for ten years - so can't really complain. Recently it has developed a tapping noise which gets faster and louder as the spin speed increases (doesn't happen on wash cycles, only when the drum begins to rock when spinning). Took top off and checked that nothing was...
