Many dryers start to squeal when too many wet clothes are put into the drum. The force needed to turn the drum is greater than the friction caused by the force of the friction of the belt on the drum, idler pulley's and the drive pulley.

Sometimes the belt squeals when the bearing surfaces on the front and rear of the drum wear out. Trapped coins and other metal debris can contribute to the early demise of the Teflon slides than most modern dryers use. These slide bearings can be replaced. I've found that if the belt wears out more than twice, the bearings need replacing too. The idler pulley bearings eventually wear out too.

Okay, I found you in the admins list and thought you could help me with this, here goes everything,

I want to make a UIB but I can't because I don't know what in heck the UIB articles were talking about. It's all technecally and stuff, which I know exactly NOTHING about.

But just for the heck of it I made one. It wasn't perfect and I wasn't very proud of it, even though I told this person on the site called Ilovepink123 that I was proud of it. Anyways it ended up big but not that big, here this will help,
Adam Mitchel Lambert
This author is an Adam Lambert fan!

I don't want to make another one that looks like this but I don't know how because I told you, I don't know squat about what the UIB articles say. So she (Ilovepink123) sent me a link to admins (and I picked you) and I came here to say will you help me make a UIB?

We've talked before you just don't know it. I was Mitsuki and Wakalaka. I didn't want those users anymore so I asked someone to delete them. It's another long story, and I lollygag because I'm a girl and I want to make a UIB so bad but I can't. So this is my last sentence, Will you help me make a UIB please?

RockyRaccoonRockyRaccoon said:

Thanks. :)

As for Bmjh, another admin told me via IRC that I needed to "try out my buttons" and they had someone who they thought needed to be blocked... I did take a look at the contribs in order to make my own opinion and I didn't see anything productive towards wikiHow, so I went ahead with the block... but I didn't pay a whole lot of attention to the timestamps. Oops. :P A week off of wikiHow won't hurt that guy anyway, though, IMHO.

Can I get your thoughts on [ these pics]? I asked for and got permission to use 'em, but I'm kind of at a loss for what to do next, since I know about keeping countertops from getting too dirty, but not anything about making them from concrete. =D

Spawn-ManSpawn Man said:

Hi there,

Sorry to bother you, but I was on IRC tonight and noticed some incivility. This included profanities, calling new users retarded and a miriad of other insults and incivilites, both to myself and the said new user. The firstpart of the conversation was in part fun and games, with I and another user joking around. However, we endevoured to try and answer the new user's comments and another editor began with the incivility.

When I tried to ge the user to stop, he insisted swearing was allowed. I asked if calling people retarded was, and he said that he had been on the IRC for several years and that he was allowed to swear. I looked in the IRC Governance and found that, in addition to the usual civility rules, the line "Swearing, discrimination, hate speech, and other inappropriate content, words, or links are unacceptable."

When I presented this to the user, he stated that the rules on that page had been changed without a vote and that he would get them change. He said that no one would impede him and that he was allowed to curse whenever he liked and that he will continue to do so. He said the rules on WikiHow do not apply to the IRC, despite the link and rules I gave to him. He also said that in Private Chats he also did not have to use the WikiHow civility.

The ordeal was most distressing because not only was the new user shown this horrible side of the IRC, but his queries did not get properly addressed. The user basically thinks he's infalliable and that I, nor anyone can touch him. Since we encourage people to visit IRC for queries and to report vandalism, I personally do not feel this is an appropriate behaviour.

I tried to talk to the user and said that if he ceased the actions, because he stated he had not read the rules before, then I would not take the matter any further. But his insistence to continue in his ways has forced me to report this misconduct and hopefully he is incorrect in his assumption of untouchability.

If you want further information on the issue, contact me via email, my talk page or possibly on IRC if I'm on. I want to see this matter further and I have contacted a few other admins for an opinion.

Spawn-ManSpawn Man said:

Okay, thanks. If you have any advice at all, it'd be appreciated, but yes, it is an annoying issue because some veteran editors think they have a right of some kind to swear and be more incivil than new users. Unfortunately, their weight does not sway with me.

I hope your eyesight gets better! Although it's probably not the same, I squashed my glasses last week and it was horrible not being able to see for a whole weekend lol!

Why did you delete without going through the proper voting channels? Here's my post on the discussion page which was summarily ignored just so you could flex your oh-so-impressive moderator muscles.

When you let your personal power trip go beyond the benefits of Wikihow and genuinely harming it by removing useful information, it may be time to take a step back and more closely examine your moderation policy. Just a thought.

Nominate speedy keep, and a question of possible power abuse on the part of the delete nominator. Inquiring wikihowians NEED to know this stuff, and censoring valuable information like this is fascism of the worst sort.

Why is this even up for discussion? Baffling.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your note.

Just sent this to Kristie. You may find it of interest.

Hi Krystie,

I took a look at the PS article, and it appears that it is more in line with target shooting. Point Shooting in self defense is a different animal. There are different methods as well, Quick Kill, Center Axis Relock or CAR, FAS - for the Fairbairn/Applegate method, and P&S which has been around since 1835. Also the NRA supports the use of PS not sighted for use in close quarters life threat situations. See and

If you have questions, please let me know.

Hey! BR,

I did not put in for admin this time as Jack advised me not to do so. Perhaps next time.

For some surprising, and perhaps exciting news, I put in for a job as an aviation reporter. I've done similar reporting in the past. I wasn't planning on looking for work, but these jobs don't show up that often. I don't have all the qualifications but you never know...and as my mother would say...You don't know unless you try.

Wow, that's a lot of things to happen these past months! Good for you! Do you have photos of the special occasion? And having a job, that's super news in this climate. And I'm a lot better thanks. Life is full of so many interesting twists & turns, sometimes we just have to roll with them, face the adversity and come out the other side a better soul for it. =)

Great photos - love is in the air! You've got a lovely family and I can see clearly you all enjoy spending time together. I especially like the pic with your son and the fire - that captured a real "moment". Thanks for sharing these, I feel I know you quite a lot more already! Enjoy the work, catch you later.

Hi, I wrote "How to create an imginary lover." It is flagged for deletion because it is a "joke topic". How is it a joke? Some people have a hard time with real life dating and an imaginary freind can help. Even writers of novels use imaginary people as characters and these people become their "friends". Why not have an imaginary date???? jazzy90210 :) Thanks for the help. And please, help me in fighting loneliness! :)

Hey,I'm super new to this, well actually, I've been a long time anonymous user, I stink at spelling sometimes due to the fact that I'm forgetful but besides that... well I'm an English teacher. I loved using wikihow and I'm upset that I can't delete some articles. (that was a joke) But, when I saw the ad for the clean-up toolbar I was like: "thank the lord I can do this.' Unfortunately I was confused, I decided to go with grammar edits and such. obviously with the deleted an entire page, I try to help clean that up. Are there any guide-lines I should follow elsewhere?

Great article Bob! And the longing I have for a pecan harvest...! It's been years since I helped out the walnut harvest. I digress... I don't see any problem with wikiHow having both articles - they're different methods and both good titles that readers would search for. I'd vote for both being here as distinct articles, only need will be to make sure they're cross-referenced in relateds so that readers can find both. Looking forward to your photos! And send me some pecans, nudge, nudge. If only! ~ Flic

Heya Bob! You tried using the "Embed Video" link on the left sidebar? There are 4 tabs, you have to click on the "YouTube" one to look for videos from "utube" :) Then try typing the exact title of the video into the search box. That should work. If not, just let me know! It's great to hear from you!! I saw that pecan article and it made me miss New Mexico!

Can I ask a question?
Krystle(another admin)told me that I can advertise like .
My article already imitated that article.
but my article still has a advertise sign.
My question is what can I do to move it away?
English is my second language! So I hope that you can understand what I'm talking about.

Hey Bob!

Yeah, you're right, the page doesn't really need to get deleted. I chimed in and edited a bit.

Hey, BR.

I wrote an article a while ago called Play the Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? DVD Game. It seems whenever you click on the link, it says "How to Play the Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader - does not exist" I think it has somethin to do with the question mark. Can you help me fix the link, change the title or something? I can find no way to access the article.


At 16:57, Nov 15, 2009

GSNGSN said:

I'll contact Travis and see if he knows what to do. If not, I guess I could just re-write the article...

KrystleKrystle said:

Hey! That was tricky. I still can't figure out how to change the title. I did manage to get to a version of the page that actually shows the page, but my suggestion was to start a new page, sans question mark. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

I CANT BELIEVE YOU DELETED MY ARTICLE ALREADY! DO YOU KNOW WHO MUCH TIME I SPENT ON THAT????? can i at least please get a copy of it back because i can post it elsewhere if you dont want it here i do not find it in any way offensive or anything else in the deletion policy. my article is hardly deletion worthy! have you even read half the articles on your site? if you had then you would notice that mine is pretty decent! i see nothing wrong with it! i was very proud of it.

Hi, BR.

It seems the hot topic today is a new article, Yell Pickle. Although the article is just nonsense, there seems to be a few people who insist on keeping it (preferably the writer) and we all realize that the article is a joke. I placed a {{speedy}} template at the top of the page in hopes that it will be deleted, and gave the writer a warning + commented on the discussion page.

Please help straighten things out,

Would you believe it, the next set of admin elections is only about a month and a half away!? I am trying to get our master list of those that hope to participate in the election. In order to make sure that you are included in the next set of admin elections, please read on.

If you received the emails during the last election cycle, there is nothing you need to do - you will be included in this cycle as well.

If you did not receive the emails with information on voting in the last admin election, but you would like to participate in this election, please send me an email or talk page message indicating your interest in participating.

If you were recently made an admin and would like to be included in the next set of admin elections, please let me know so that we can get you included in the next set of elections.

If you were included in the last admin election, but you don't want to participate again this time, please let me know.

Hey, what's up. I'm wondering if I could talk to someone about getting my account deleted. It's like a festering corpse that I have to haul around on my back. It's flesh, partly picked clean from birds and waterfowl, is dirtying my clothing, giving me a bad name so to speak. It crams my smoldered psychosis into a dreaded whirlpool of madness. The current lapping on me feet, I can't hold on much longer.


I don't want it. AT ALL.
