Anyone try any of these new "thermal shock/penetrant" products? It looks like something worth trying.

Why does LG use two different types of Loctite? What's the functional difference between the Blue (242) and the Red (271) Loctites?

Like sh2sh2 said, red is stronger. You only use red when you have no intention of trying to break it loose later. Blue holds well, but is easier to break loose when you need to.

You often require heat etc when removing a bolt locked w/red, whereas a good jar with an adequate wrench/socket you can remove blue.
I normally carry with me threadlocker 292, wicking grade (usually light green or purple) - designed to run into threads without loosening and holds most of what I deal with around appliances. Pretty expensive stuff generally, around cars you sometimes need the high strength stuff.

<<<I normally carry with me threadlocker 292, wicking grade (usually light green or purple)>>>

*********************

Same stuff I use :)

Just had an LG WM0642 washer tonight with a stripped ROTOR (no threadlocker visible on factory-installed 17mm bolt).

New ROTOR installed---and threadlocker (green color)---good as new.

FWIW---New ROTORS have been re-designed from having a plastic spline---to a steel spline (a bit overdue).
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

The Threadlocker 242 that I've found is all blue:

Whereas the Threadlocker 290 is green:

Is there a green 242 or are you guys referring to the 290?

Back in the day when I rebuilt muscle car motors I used to get locktight red or blue at the auto supply houses. They still carry it only it has gotten expensive. Good Stuff. :thumbsup:
